New headphone company, Sol Republic has introduced its first in-ear headphones, named Amps and Amps HD. Each headphone features a unique sound signature, fashion-forward look and includes a remote and mic. While both headphones look about the same it is assumed the HD model (pictured right) should provide better sound.
Sol Republic says they're obsessed with sound quality and dedicated to delivering innovation in sound, style and durability, offering amazing headphones that are affordable for virtually all music fans. Their name “Sol” is an acronym for Soundtrack Of Life because music provides the soundtrack for every memory and for the profound and everyday moments in your life.
