Sol Republic Headphones Review #VZWBuzz

A little while ago, as part of the Verizon #VZWBuzz Bloggers group, I received a pair of Sol Republic Relays Headphones to review.  Having never worn earbuds regularly I was hesitant.  I’ve always wanted to be one of those who enjoyed music while going for a walk {or the occasional jog} but I couldn’t find earbuds that both stayed in and didn’t hurt my ears.

I have sensitive ears.  Very sensitive ears.  Talking a walk on a windy day hurts my ears and leaves me with an awful headache.  On my first trip to Ireland I spent the last leg laying on my side {Yay for an empty plane!} holding my ears and trying to fight off the tears.  I’ve since learned they have ear plugs to help with this but even the kid’s sized plugs are uncomfortable in my ears.  Much better than without them but still uncomfortable.

Back to the Sol Republic earbuds, they. are. amazing!  Not only do they have multiple sizes for you to slip on, like most well-made earbuds do, but they also have a teeny tiny size.  I could show you pictures of four other name brand headphones in my house right now that don’t have a tiny option like the Sol Republic headphones do…but I won’t!

Not only do they have a tiny ear tip {I need to learn what the correct word is for those rubber ends!} but they also stay put.  They don’t fall out like every other pair I’ve ever owned!  Maybe it’s because of the tiny end or because of the unique tilted shape.  I’m not sure why they work well but I’m just here to report that they do.

If you’re not sold yet, listen to this, they’re bluetooth compatible!!  What’s that mean?  That means you can use them to answer your phone!  How cool is that?!  Not only is that a fun feature but it’s a good thing to have because they do such a good job at blocking out outside noises you might not hear your phone ring otherwise.

If you’re looking for a pair of headphones to run in, listen to music, or just watch Netflix in bed at night I highly recommend you take a look at Sol Republic’s in-ear Relays Headphones.  At only $79.99 these are a great bargain.

    You have me sold at BLUETOOTH COMPATIBLE! Thanks for sharing, Ashley 🙂

  2. I’m not a huge fan of earphones so I am definitely going to have to try these. Thanks so much.

  3. That’s a problem my husband and I also have – small ears. He gave up on earbuds a while ago but these might work for him. They look comfy!

  4. Julie Wood says

    WOW! These are very nice headphones. I would love to have a pair of these when I go walking and listen to music. I like that it is bluetooth compatable.

  5. great review! i also get frustrated with earbuds that just won’t stay put. i bet the super small earbud covers and the angled design have a lot to do with that. all the earbuds i’ve ever used are at a 90 degree angle, and don’t fit me very well.

  6. Nightowlmama says

    love that they offer different sizes . always looking for a good earbud for tunes. THanks for the review

  7. Thanks! I need some that will stay put for running.

  8. I have those and they are great!! Glad you enjoyed them!

  9. DUDE! I have never, ever found a pair of earbuds that fit my ears – they always fall out instantly. I wonder if these would work for me since they didn’t fall out of your ears?!

  10. Hanan @ EAT. CRAFT. PARENT. says

    I’m not a fan of eat buds either…but I haven’t seen a pair tilted like that before. I bet that does help it stay in better!

  11. Kimberly Grabinski says

    I have been so curious about these because other earbuds hurt my ears these look like they would be more comfy.

  12. Lynda Self says

    I like that they are Bluetooth enabled. So sorry about your ears on your flight. Yikes!

  13. Jennifer Clay says

    I think these would be perfect for me! Thanks for sharing your review!

  14. Digna Dreibelbis says

    They look incredibly comfortable. Very important with as often as we wear them these days.

  15. ToniPatton says

    those look super comfy. I need some of these for when I go workout

  16. I always have such a hard time with earbuds hurting my ears. This actually look comfy.

  17. These look interesting. I also have tiny ear canals, and earbuds just fall out all the time. These may solve the problem!

  18. I love that they’re bluetooth compatible. I need a good fitting, comfortable headphones for hands-free talking on my iPhone while driving.

  19. Sarah @ Must Have Mom says

    I love the small tips because I have small ears! I hate when they are too big to fit in my ears.

  20. Robin Gagnon says

    I could use a new set of headphones & these look like a nice choice.

  21. I need to get a set of these!

  22. I like how they swivel, that looks super comfy!

  23. Very cool design. They look comfy.

  24. Nicole Brady says

    We have a set of SOL REPUBLIC headphones and they are not only high quality but very comfortable.

  25. I haven’t tried a pair of Sol Republic in ear yet but would love to for travel. I have tried their on ear ones which are phenomenal.

  26. These look great! I always have issues finding earphones that stay in the ear AND sound great!

  27. Virginia @thatbaldchick says

    Those look like great headphones. I have trouble finding ear molds to fit my tiny ears!
