Review: Jax Headphones by SOL REPUBLIC

You might be wondering why I am reviewing a set of headphones today instead of a book? Well, as many of you already know, I listen to audio books on my iPhone every day during my workouts; and I am constantly having "issues" with my headphones. Just last week, I blew through two different sets -- one starting shocking me while I was running and the other one kept skipping. And this isn't just a one time (or two time) problem for me -- it's so frustrating.

So when I was given the opportunity to check out SOL REPUBLIC's new Jax in-ear headphones for the iPod, iPhone and iPad, I jumped at the chance. These headphones are not only cute -- I have the blue ones and they match my Vera Bradley iPhone cover!, but they work extremely well. They fit my ears perfectly (which is another big problem for me with headphones), and that's because they come with four different sizes of ear tips. In addition, the cord doesn't tangle, and there is a 3-button remote control and microphone. I absolutely love them!  

Currently, the headphones are available in black-on-white and stellar-on-blue; however, there are plans for more than 15 additional colors by the end of 2013. I'm hoping they come out with a pink or purple!

Here's a little bit more about the headphones:

Designed from the ground up, Jax use SOL REPUBLIC's newly developed i2 Sound Engines, which deliver powerful sound with great bass and clear highs. An ideal headphone for both playing music and talking on the phone, Jax offer users a number of benefits, including a flat cable that doesn't tangle and a durable design to withstand everyday use. 

I think the headphones are an ideal gift for Mother's Day. They can be found a many retailers, including RadioShack and Best Buy for an MSRP of $39.99.

And one more big bonus: Jax headphones are part of SOL REPUBLIC's exclusive Ear Tips For Life program. They are the only manufacturer that will replace your ear tips anytime they are lost or misplaced and even if you just want a different size.

It's weird, the picture isn't coming through but I'm taking note of the name. I have the hugest issues with earphones! I swear after a short amount of time, one ear always goes out. It is to the point where I always have to have a spare pair ready.

The ear tips for life would sell me. I'm so hesitant to buy yet a new pair, although I'm constantly looking for the ideal earbuds. And even though I'm careful, I tend to go through them quickly. I'll look for these in blue.

I struggle with ear phones too and go through them quite often. These sound outstanding!

When I saw your post I did a double-take. Just this past Monday I started to hunt for new earphones. I like to listen to meditation tapes when I have a few minutes to relax while on tour, and the iPhone earbuds I've been using aren't comfortable. I'm definitely going to check Jax Headphones!
