I was never much of a headphone person but the SOL Republic headphones that were sent for our review was quite intriguing in that everything is detachable and interchangable meaning that I can totally be a girl and mix and match the headphones to match outfits. I was sent the Michael Phelps-inspired version boasting naturally of red, white and blue colours where a portion of all proceeds benefit the Michael Phelps Foundation. The sound itself is decent with a good bass and crisp clear sounds. Not surprising given that the founders of SOL Republic all come from a consumer electronics background with one of them being the son of Monster Cable founder. My only issue with the headphones were that my head hurt slightly after using them for a full hour or so but I'm more inclined to think it was my large head rather than the fault of the headband.
Available at most electronic retailers such as Broadway, Fortress etc for HK$1,499. iPhone compatible.
