Our take on the SOL REPUBLIC Amps

by Dave Bar

Upgrade your portable music listening experience

If you're still using the earbuds that came with your music player or smartphone, you're missing out on a lot of listening pleasure. The Amps from SOL REPUBLIC deliver high-quality sound that really brings out the best in your favorite tunes — and look cool doing it. These stylish in-ear headphones let you hear more detailed highs and deeper, more powerful bass than stock earbuds. And their compact, lightweight design makes a perfect match with any portable device.

Switch between your calls and your music with ease

The three-button in-line remote lets you control your favorite Apple® device while on the go. You can adjust your music's volume, and pause, play, or skip through your songs. Plus, a built-in microphone lets you answer and end calls on your iPhone®, and provides voice control with select iPod® and iPad® models.

Comfort and convenience

The headphone's silicone ear tips naturally help block out noise, and come in four different sizes for a perfect fit. An angled, in-ear design is made to match the ear's natural shape for better comfort and more focused sound. And the right-angle stereo mini plug helps reduce stress on your player's headphone jack.

so so headphones

Written By maxwellsmart, Orlando, FL on Monday, December 24, 2012
 
I was hoping for a good fitting and solid headphones for my iphone, but these are not that great. The design is flawed and fit is bad, no matter which attachment ear piece i use, it keeps slipping out of my ear during exercise.
Pros:
Okay sound quality
Cons:
Design and fit is horrible
