SOL Republic Relays


The affordable, exercise-oriented SOL Republic Relays are value-priced earphones that offers intense low-end for bass lovers.

Powerful audio performance with intense deep bass. Lightweight, secure-fitting design geared towards exercise. Sweat- and water-resistant. Inline remote for mobile devices

Highly sculpted sound signature isn't for purists

The marketing behind the SOL Republic Relays claims that they're "crossover" earphones, combining the superb fit of exercise-focused pairs with the excellent sound that exercise earphones supposedly lack. This is a pretty bizarre notion—the Sennheiser...

Sol Republic Relays In-Ear Sports Headphone Review

Sol Republic Relays review


We loved the Sol Republic Calvin Harris tuned over-the-ear headphones that we reviewed last year. In fact we loved them so much that we nominated them for an award. What made those headphones so special was that they were a perfect package of sound...

SOL Republic Relays


The affordable, exercise-oriented SOL Republic Relays are value-priced earphones that offers intense low-end for bass lovers.

On tracks with serious sub-bass content, like the Knife’s “Silent Shout,” the Relays hold their own—not only do they deliver a tremendous amount of sub-woofer-esque thunder, but they do so without distorting, even at top, unsafe listening levels. The...

Broke after 2 days.


None really

Worked great for 2 days ; Wires to earbuds are extremely flimsy and super thin. One of the wires broke in half after lite usage ; Getting a warranty replacement through SolRepublic is burdensome. Too many hoops to jump through. Example: you must send a...

Comfortable fit, nice sound!


These are ear buds that actually stay in the ear. They come with the standard three sizes of rubber ends to custom fit each ear. The sound is more mid-range (which I like) but the bass and trebles are not lost at all. Wonderful sound mix in my opinion....

Staying put & Sounding great


I have a hard time finding headphones that stay in my ears in general, especially when I'm active, but these have not fallen out yet! I run, row, lift weights & do body weight exercises & all of these I've been able to do with these headphones...

Consumer review by: ElementPB (

Good sound and comfort. Bad cord noise.


Most reviews on these are exceedingly positive, so I'll mark it down as a faulty product, not typical for all of this model earbud. Cord noise was so loud that it was impossible to hear music when moving around.
