SOL Republic headphones are pretty amazing when it comes to sound quality and we previously had an over-ear SOL headphones reviewed so this time let’s look into the SOL Republic shadow wireless headphones that are in ear headphones and could be a great choice for your gym workouts!
Design and Built quality
The design on these headphones have always been impressive, SOL headphones have this premium quality design that really makes their headphones look expensive. The Shadow wireless headphones are pretty impressive as well and it definitely does not feel cheap while you wear it.
The headphones are comfortable to wear and the neck band makes wearing the headphones really comfortable. The fit of the headphones is pretty good and the headphones have some really good design. You can check out the design on Amazon in order to see the different color combinations on these headphones.
The sound quality is pretty good, it is not as good as the Bose premium headphones but neither is it bad. The sound quality is average and if you are an audiophile then you might want to get premium headphones to satisfy your hunger for the perfect sound quality.
The headphones come with an inline mic and remote which can be used to control the volume settings and the song that has been playing on the sports Bluetooth headphones. The sound quality in these headphones may not be amazing but at the same time, they are not bad as well.
These headphones are sweat resistant so you can use them in any weather conditions. However, I would not recommend these headphones for running because headphones with the neckband design are usually not fit for running or cycling as they will come out frequently.
I could recommend this for the gym but the earbuds are just not the perfect for any sports activity since they constantly keep falling. There are other headphones from SOL which are better but this one here just does not make the cut. The headphones will last you longer if you maintain them but when it comes to comfort these headphones are a bummer.
The headphones are comfortable to wear but the problem is they just do not stay in your ears. The neckband design was something I always tried to stay away from, however, you can find a few good ones like the Samsung U-level Pro but otherwise, when it comes to this headphone, I think it is best to use it for walks or less rigorous activities.
The headphones could be made a bit better when it came to staying intact in the ears and that is the only major problem when it comes to these headphones. However, your experience can be different, so if it is let me know in the comments section below.
As long as my experience is concerned, I think the headphones just fall out every now and then and it is better to invest in headphones like JLAB Audio Epic or the Jaybird X3 rather than wasting money on headphones like these.
The battery life on these headphones will last you around 8 hours which is pretty decent for a Bluetooth headphone. You get a charger with your purchase which you will need to charge your headphones. The Bluetooth headphones are has a great battery life and for this price, I think the battery is impressive.
However, the only setback would be that the earbuds keep falling every now and then and that is more than just a setback. Many people including me would not be willing to make this purchase since it keeps falling off the ears and can be a major turn off for the overall product.
As mentioned at many places, the fact that the headphones fall off is a major turn off. If you are still going to try out the headphones then you surely can since you can even return the product if not satisfied. However, I would recommend looking for other headphone options since you can find plenty of great sports Bluetooth headphones in the given price range.
There are quite a few recommendations on the best sports Bluetooth headphones for running and if you are looking for something low on budget then do take a look at best Bluetooth sports headphones under $50. Let me know if you have had any experiences with the headphones before in the comments section below and do have a look of the product on Amazon.
