Sol Republic Relay Headphones #VZWBuzz

Watching a movie in bed at night is one of my favorite things to do, but I can’t watch it on the big TV because I don’t like that much sound in the dark. (Issues.) I watch it on my tablet with ear buds, but there are issues there too.

I have wimpy ears. They’re all sensitive to sound and tender like newborn skin. They get raw and inflamed when I make them wear ear buds. If I was an ear canal bully, I would totally give my wussy crybabies a beat down. With definition.

I’m also constantly fidgeting and flitting. I have the attention span of a 3-month old, so I’m always looking out the window, running my fingers through my hair, stretching, rubbing my eyes, reaching for a drink, checking my text messages on my phone… just stuff.

And all that flailing means I catch my hands on my ear bud cords and pull them. It’s partly my fault, but it’s so freaking annoying when they fall out. And it hurts my crybaby ears.

That’s what I like about my new ones. They fit securely (but gently) and they stay put in spite of my constant bumps, pulls and other shenanigans!

These little cuties are Sol Republic Relay headphones and since I can use the wee’est of the ear tips, my ear canals don’t whimper in pain like they used to.

Now I can listen to music, watch movies, jump on my trampoline, change a load of laundry, fix myself a snack, answer the phone (through bluetooth) and run and get the mail without my headphones coming loose.

They’re built for an active lifestyle!

For what activities in your day would these headphones come in handy?


As member of a pretty cool team of influencers, the #VZWBuzz Team, I received the Sol Republic Relay Headphones from Verizon. No additional compensation was provided nor did I promise a positive review. All opinions are my own.

  1. Earbuds always hurt my ears but I think it’s because the way that they are shaped. I’m going to have to give these a try and see if they feel any better :)

  2. Oh I love the different sizes you can have. I have small ears so it’s always a chore trying to find earbuds to work with my ears.

  3. I’ve been watching a lot of Netflix on my phone in bed while nursing the baby at night, and of course I have to use headphones so I don’t wake my husband. These would be great!

  4. Those earbuds look awesome! I bet the sound is great!

  5. These are perfect when I’m writing and want to tune things out!

  6. I can’t watch TV in bed, but love to listen to music and earbuds usually both my ears, too. I’ll have to check these out!

  7. Just every day use. My ear canals often get sore from most ear buds but these looks very comfy and non-bulky.
