SOL REPUBLIC Creates First Cross-Over Headphone For Work, Play And Sport

Relays in-ear headphones provide great sound without falling out whether you're running to catch the train or training for a run

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Committed to changing the world one listener at a time, SOL REPUBLIC has announced Relays, the first cross-over headphone that keeps up with you and your active life. In-ear Relays offer the benefits of a sports headphone but have amazing style that looks great anytime, making them the only headphone you need all day. With Relays, SOL REPUBLIC introduces its proprietary FreeFlex™ technology, which is wrapped around the new i5 Sound Engine. FreeFlex enables Relays' universal fit and makes them easy to put in your ear and stay there regardless of how intensely you move. Relays deliver the sound and style to keep you going whether you're commuting on the subway, running after work or pushing through to meet a deadline.

"It's always been a challenge to find one headphone to keep up with you all day long. Your everyday earbuds are great for your commute, but fall out when running or biking. And your sports headphones are great for the treadmill, but you would never be caught wearing them on the street," said Scott Hix, SOL REPUBLIC President. "Like the cross-trainer shoe, Relays are a cross-over headphone that keeps up with you whether you're hanging out or working out."

With the help of SOL REPUBLIC's exclusive patent-pending FreeFlex technology, Relays offer a secure, universal fit that adjusts to any ear size, thanks to a malleable ring around the ear-bud. They just fall right in, without needing adjustments or fidgeting, and they are easier to use than most earbuds. The lightweight, low-profile design is the perfect teammate for any sport, but Relays stay put without the cumbersome, heavy clips or bulky bands that are standard on most sports headphones. From the streets to the trails, the train to the slopes, Relays keep up with you and your music without sacrificing amazing sound or style.

The unique design may be subtle in size; however, the sound is anything but. Providing the clarity and big sound that you would expect from a larger headphone, Relays' new I5 Sound Engine, which is tiny and an engineering feat in itself, delivers full sound with balance and details that bring out the best in any type of music. The sound is so big you'll be amazed it's coming from such a sleek in-ear headphone. We believe music is emotion, and sound is the power behind it. When it comes to sports, better sound helps you train harder.  For work, great sound makes you more focused.  For play, if music sounds better, it feels better so you can lose yourself to your music and have a better time.

For sports and outdoor use, Relays are water and sweat resistant, and have a clip-on cable that ensures the cable won't ever get caught. No need to change headphones when commuting or working because the easily accessible mic and phone control lets you seamlessly stay in touch. Adjusting volume or switching tracks is easy and essential for finding the right song for the next step of your day.

Like all other SOL REPUBLIC in-ear headphones Relays are part of our exclusive "Ear Tips for Life" program so you never have to worry if you lose your ear tips. SOL REPUBLIC is the only manufacturer that will replace your ear tips anytime they are lost, misplaced or if you simply want a different size. Relays ship with four different size ear tips for the perfect fit as well as a carrying case to keep them protected when not in use.

SOL REPUBLIC Relays are available now in Black for $79.99 at Verizon Wireless and SOLREPUBLIC.com/relays and will be available nationwide in Black & White, Horizon Blue and Lemon Lime at leading nationwide retailers in February 2014.

The goal of Continuous Testing is to shift testing left to find defects earlier and release software faster. This can be achieved by integrating a set of open source functional and performance testing tools in the early stages of your software delivery lifecycle.

Continuous Testing is the conveyer belt between the Software Factory and production stages. Artifacts are m...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Cloud resources, although available in abundance, are inherently volatile. For transactional computing, like ERP and most enterprise software, this is a challenge as transactional integrity and data fidelity is paramount – making it a challenge to create cloud native applications while relying on RDBMS. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Claus Jepsen, Chief Architect and Head of Innovation Labs at Unit4, will explore that in order to create distributed and scalable solutions ensuring high availa...
An increasing number of companies are creating products that combine data with analytical capabilities. Running interactive queries on Big Data requires complex architectures to store and query data effectively, typically involving data streams, an choosing efficient file format/database and multiple independent systems that are tied together through custom-engineered pipelines.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level.

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality.

Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach.

Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
