Most Badass Earbuds Ever!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I wrote a review previously - gave it a 5 star for sound (awesome!), three for functionality( kind of heavy for running, volume control/mike, caused the earbuds to pop out a lot), four overall. Now there's a new category. Ultimate durability. I use these in the gym. Went home with my ipod shuffle and Sol earbuds in my pocket. Put them all in the washer (by accident). After a full, heavy duty cycle with Arm& Hammer detergent, I found the ipod and earbuds in a tangled mess in the bottom of the washer. Well hell! But after drying out, both the ipod shuffle(good promo for apple here) and the earbuds worked perfectly. There's some circuitry in the earbuds that give them great sound. The fact that they still have great sound after a full cycle washing is unbelievable to me. I don't care if they are a bit heavy. That gives them five stars in my book. Unbelievable! So now I am a Sol republic fan for life. So how about making a pair with "over ear" attachments so I can run in them?These have been through the wringer - literally.
