Committed to changing the world one listener at a time, SOL REPUBLIC introduces SHADOW Wireless, the first in-ear wireless headphone to feature NASA-inspired biomorphic design, incredible sound and a fashion-forward look for music lovers who demand more. While most wireless earphones on the market are afflicted with poor sound, weak battery life or look like they were pulled from a sci-fi film, SHADOW is designed to be an extension of your body and style. Balanced and detailed, SHADOW sounds better than most wired headphones, features a mic & remote, and has an 8 hour battery life so you’ll be ready to play music whenever you want it. SOL REPUBLIC is releasing the new SHADOW Wireless with Best Buy as an exclusive launch partner.
“Most music lovers don’t want to deal with cords anymore, but most wireless earphones force you to sacrifice sound, comfort, style or some combination of all three,” said Kevin Lee, CEO and Co-Founder at SOL REPUBLIC. “We designed SHADOW to go toe-to-toe with wired headphones in terms of kickass sound and hid a powerful battery in a lightweight, flexible design that’s so comfortable and sleek you’ll want to wear it all day.”
Digging through research conducted on the human body by NASA, SOL REPUBLIC’s team spent months studying anatomy, weight distribution and the contours of the neck to create a wireless headphone that felt like an extension of your own body. The result is a unique and lightweight design that adapts and shapes itself to your neck for a secure and comfortable fit that lasts all day and can be worn while on the train, at work or sitting through a marathon day of classes. Featuring a flexible, soft, natural-fit collar, the Sol Republic SHADOW distributes weight evenly and adjusts to your body movements just like eye-glasses or a watch so you’ll soon forget it’s there. Small and flexible enough to keep in your pocket or a small bag and built to endure both sweat and rain, SHADOW is a wireless headphone that can go anywhere you go.
Committed to always delivering incredible sound, SHADOW was tuned to deliver deceptively powerful sound, with balance and details that bring out the best in all types of music so you can leave the wires behind, but still get wired-quality sound. It’s even equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 with APT-X technology.
Using multi-point connectivity, music lovers can easily connect up to two devices at once and seamlessly switch from listening to music on a tablet to taking a phone call on a smartphone without the hassle of connecting and disconnecting. SHADOW wireless offers an easy-to-access microphone & 3-button remote to control your music, calls and volume from its collar while also letting you unchain from your phone and roam free with an up to 30-foot wireless range.
