SOL REPUBLIC Relay Headphones Review & Giveaway

What the hottest or maybe the “coolest” thing on the market that Mom wants for Mother’s Day?  The SOL REPUBLIC Relay Headphones!   Why, the Relay Headphones?   They are cool and come in amazing colors, have great sound and they make the life of mom’s like me easier.  And as a mom, any little thing that makes life easier is a REALLY big win!


So let’s forget the cool factor for a minute and talk about how they make my life easier.   As you know I’m not a “techie”.  I don’t know much about technology and you won’t catch me doing a review of a fancy running watch cuz well, I don’t have time to stress over which button to push!  I like things simple. And everything that I own that’s branded SOL REPULBLIC is always that, simple but with amazing quality.    If you’re a mom or a busy person, you know simplicity is key. 

So how many of you mom’s actually run with your phone in your hand because you can’t stress about missing calls or text messages while you are mid-workout?  Are you always afraid Little Jimmy will jump off the roof and break a leg while you are out running?  Is your Princess Ariel always stressed over reaching you while you are at the gym or on the trail because maybe she forgot her track bag or her lunch or her brain at home on the kitchen table?  Is hubby freaked out every time you walk out the door cuz he is home alone with the kids?  Is your boss frequently mad at you cuz you “took lunch” and hit the Lakefront Trail for a midday run and heaven forbid he needs his iPhone password RIGHT NOW?  Yeah?  Well, I might know how you feel so let me help.  I understand that you really don’t want to be bothered while you are running but realistically as wives, mom’s and bad ass business execs, it’s super hard to unplug and leave anything behind for too long.  So run long, but use these amazing SOL REPUBLIC Relay Headphones to stay connected.

These in-ear headphones are comfortable with soft, flexible ear pieces which come in 4 different sizes for the perfect in-ear fit.  They have a volume control on the cord so there is no digging for the phone to adjust volume every time the wind blows you want to blast your favorite song.  It also stops your music and pings you when a text message arrives.  And my very favorite thing?  That same volume button on the cord allows you to pick up a phone call.  Yes, you can pick up your phone call with one push of a button and zero fear of it going to voicemail before you are able to dig your phone out of your belt.  This is a really big deal to me.  Really big deal.

I tested these out during the Derby Festival Marathon in Louisville a couple weeks ago.  The kids were in a hotel room waiting for me to finish running.  I needed to be connected and available to help them and also be able to threaten keep Mr. Michael in line.   Plus there were times when I needed a few tunes to keep me moving.  These worked great, plus they are sweat/water resistant!!!  The kids called me 2 times and Aby probably texted me 10x.  I was able to respond immediately, each and every time.  I’m wearing them in this picture below. I wore them for about 20 miles of the race and they didn’t bother me at all.  Big win!!
