If you've read my other reviews on audio gear I'm not an audiophile and I like what I like and hopefully can get that at a fair price. I'm going to start with how these sound because this tends to be the most important aspect to the masses. Sound quality is go, not great but not disappointing. A sweat resistant headphone that isn't a Bose mei2i it actually sounds pretty good. The mid and high tones are actually awesome. The bass isn't bad, it's just not over done like a pair of beats I tried. I actually prefer this because the music I listen to sounds better without a big bass impact. With that said I would still enjoy a little more bass because I tend to rock heavy beats when I'm lifting weights but again my ears wear out quick with headphones that are too bass filled so I'm ok with giving up a little bass to add to the comfort of the headphone.
Conclusion: sound is an 8/10
Comfort is a huge deal to me since I don't typically wear in ear phones as they fatigue my ears quickly and I have to pull them out and recover a bit regardless of the brand. I'm also going to cover fit here since these phones are all about lasting through a casual listen as well as the morning jog or evening iron pumping session. I've personally tried the Bose mei2i's, beats powerbeats, Adidas sports with the fins, yurbuds ironman edition, and of course the iPhone EarPods that came with my phone. I have weird ears and zero of those stay in while moving. Yes zero.Read more ›
1. To wear while on a bicycle.
2. To wear while at the gym
Which brings out the only good point that I can make about these: They are as flat as possible in the ear-buds which is great for fitting under my helmet.
Let me go down the list of things that are not so great...
Wire noise- There is A LOT of it. Touch a wire, stand up, sit down, twist, let your shirt gently brush against it, or even (I'm not joking here) blow air on them too hard, and you have a lot of wire noise that drowns out music and sends a nice pulse of white noise straight to your ears.
Controls- Since I've had these, I've slowly lost all functionality of the three buttons. Up volume, down volume, and play/pause buttons. First was the down-volume at about 2 weeks in. Then the Up volume at a month. And finally the play/pause/skip button just today at 2 months of moderate use. I thought it was my phone for awhile, it's not. No other phone or ipod can be controlled with it anymore. So now to do anything I actually have to interface with the phone itself. Not something you should be doing while mountain-biking or have sweaty hands at a gym.
Sensitivity- There was this neat trick that the volume buttons started to do before failing all together. You touch volume up one, and the volume goes aalllll the way up. To the point where you have to hank them out of your ears to keep from damaging them. Touch volume down and it goes all the way down. Touch play/pause and it repeatedly/randomly starts/stops/skips music. Luckily these problems stopped once the offending button broke for no apparent reason.
Reliability- Let me make this clear, I've not abused these headphones in the slightest.Read more ›
I was excited to give them a whirl and they seemed pretty good at first - i expected maybe a louder volume compared to the apple earphones my iphone comes with and i think they are just about a tad bit louder which is good when you're trying to zone out while running
what i didn't like (and the reason for the 2 star review) is that it doesn't seem to really perform well for extended periods of activity. After about 40 minutes of running the remote buttons don't seem to work. I returned my first pair thinking perhaps it was an issue with that specific headphones but lo and behold the second pair had the same issue. I'm kind of sad about it honestly but I will give the other headphones in that article a shot. Worse comes to worst i'll just use the iphone earphones which does seem to stand up to the (sweaty) abuse i dish out.
These are perfect if you are fond of jogging/running, or working out, either at a gym or at home. Heck, ive even worn them while playing pickup ball, though my teammates were worried I wouldn't hear them calling for the ball. And they never fell out either.
The sound is very good, I think they are better than the Jax, and they're definitely better than those Apple earpods or Skullcandy FMJs. Sol Republic doesn't post specific data on their sight, but take it from me, that they don't sound crappy, like the Beats Tours do.
Bass is always prominent, for its a SOL product. But I feel like that with earbuds, due to the limited frequency response and output they are capable of mustering, there is absolutely no way these should field overpowering bass. Mids are sweet, and highs are solid as well, not too bright, but certainly not muddy. Distortion is not noticeable, even at higher volumes, a nice bonus for earbuds. Due to the crispy mids, vocals stand out, so if you like your pump-up rap or rock, these will not disappoint!
I'm kinda against buying earbuds for $80, it seems like a bit much, even though plenty of buds cost over $100. But these ARE very good, and if you want quality, this will fulfill your wants.Read more ›
