    Great sounding headphones for the price!

    Overall, these are absolutely great for all genres of music. Deep bass, high treble and good midrange punch. Only con is that the neck portion seems a little small and tends to slide around when moving around. Otherwise great purchase.

    I use my headphone mostly on my runs. Noise reduction is out of this world. One of the sides is sliding of my ear, don't know why. Neck bar is well balanced to keep it on my neck during run. Great headphones

    Really like to love these heaphones but...

    Posted .

    Really like to love these BT heaphones. They sound great, looks good and fit snugly inside the ears comfortably and without pain. But disappointingly, Sol Republic missed the most important part of owning BT headphones...BT RECEPTION! The BT signal of the Shadow is weak and sensitive to movement. I've tried 2 pairs and they both performed identically. It annoyingly cuts in and out when placed in the back pocket of my jeans while walking or doing other activities. I have to mention that there isn't a problem with BT signal when placed in front pockets. Took them on a 30 mile bicycle ride and it did the same thing the entire way. Mind you the distance between the phone and Shadow was just less than two feet from the inside of my jersey's back pockets. Other than that, everything is up to par with more expensive BT headphones. For those complaining about the collar falling off, look for an appropriate size S-biner or any closed type hook to hold the 2 wires together (see picture) keeping the collar from twisting/falling. Problem solved! My rating for each category. Sound 5 Fit 4 Design/functionality 3 Durability 4 Battery life 4 BT Reception 2 Looks 4 Call quality 5 Charging time 5

    Nice product but has problems keeping connections

    Posted .

    I would like to say that I really enjoy the Shadow headphones that I purchased but I am having a problem with single between my devices and my headset. I have a IPod 5th Generation running IOS 8.4 and a IPad Air 2 running IOS 8.4 and I have problems when I am outdoors with the single being lost. Normally I run my stuff off of ITunes and listen to my IPod which I keep in my pant pocket and when I am in a outdoor environment I will loose single or it will break up. The same happens with the IPad I will be listening to music put it in my backpack and will almost always loose the single or it will break up so much that I have to switch back to my regular wired headphones. When I am indoors I do not have the same single problem. I would think that there shouldn’t be much of a problem when the devices are less then 2 to 3 feet from each other. (ie. pant pocket or my backpack over my shoulder which is even closer.) The IPod seems to keep a single better then the IPad. I have tryed to contact Sol Republic about the problem but haven't heard back from them in weeks. Overall I like the light weight of the product, the sound and the construction but for overall reliability Id have to say Indoors great Outdoors ok.

    As soon as I saw that this was available at Best Buy. I saved up some money and went to the closest store to buy it. And I'm really happy to have bought it, because I use it most of the time. It's comfortable and the quality is great.

    Sounds great, but...

    Posted .

    These headphones sound pretty darn good, and when new, battery life was short but acceptable(about 7 hours). They are now ~3 months old, and I'm lucky of I get 4.5 hours on a full charge(24 hours of charging), and the right side earbud has stopped working. The bluetooth has ok range, definitely not the 30 feet advertised, more like 4-6 feet...nothing to brag about. Talking on phone was average, I could hear well, they could here me most of the time...sometimes bluetooth would cut out. Fit was ok, had to really shove them in my ears to get them to stay. Worse thing about these is they don't stay on your neck. I can't count how many times I have had someone come running up to me telling me I dropped them and I didnt even realize it. Thank goodness for honest people. guess I'm going back to wired headphones. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm looking for decent mic and good sound quality. Can't recommend to anyone. Not worth 100 bucks. ff they ever drop to 30 bucks I would say go for it. Has 1 year parts&labor warranty,so I'll submit a claim. Will let you know how that works out.

    Good at first but drastically losses quality

    Posted .

    Not even two weeks into its use and it already sucks. first week started out fine up until the second week. it seemed like the sound quality lowered a bit but now it's useless because it won't charge and it's charging light won't even turn on even if it's plugged to an outlet. not worth your money if it'll break after light usage. It made a good first impression but it later turned out to be completely useless and wasn't worth my time or money

    Best Blutooth buds I have tried!

    |
    Posted .

    I will start by saying that I have a mild addiction to headphones of all types, mostly ear-buds and over-the-ear. I impulse buy headphones under $150 way too often. However, that gives me the ability to see which ones perform better than others. From an over-the-ear perspective, My UE9000's are my favorite Bluetooth headphones for non-portable listening without cords (but they include cords if you want). In the category of the Sol Republic Shadow wireless ear-buds, I have had the LG Tone, the LG Tone Infinim, JLab Epic, and Motorola S11's. Each had their pluses and minuses. LG was not big on durability or sound, but was great on phone calls. Motorola gave me fit issues with them staying in the ears, and JLab sounded better musically, but people couldn't hear me talk. Then I found these. They are comfortable, very comfortable. I don't even realize I have them around my neck. The sound is fantastic. I thought I might lose some fidelity being wireless versus the Sol Republic Amps I have, and I was mistaken. These sound superb. With the included tips, I found a perfect fit, and I have no problems with them falling out of my ears. The design is simplistic, yet practical. The cords are very durable. Heck, the whole unit is durable, and well made. I love that they are flexible and can be tossed in my bag. They are not rigid or stiff like the others I have tried. No matter what music I queue up to play (hard rock, electronic, classical, etc.), the sound is very solid. People have had no problems hearing me when I am calls, and the battery life is solid. I have had this running constant during an 8 hour work day and never had it run out of batteries. Overall, this is an excellent product for the price. If I had to state 1 con, it would only be for certain users. I have to use a collared shirt with this so it stays in place. I am a big guy. Like 6' 3" 22" neck kind of guy. When I have this on with nothing but a regular t-shirt, it has a tendency to slip down off of my neck if it is not hooked in my ears. That is because when it goes around my big neck, the weighted ends are only 1/2 way around my neck. Movement causes them to slip backwards sometimes. For a user with a "normal" neck size, the ends should fall further down your neck towards your collar bone, and you won't have that problem. I can't blame the headphones for me being a large guy. They will fit superbly for most users. Get these! You won't regret.

    Sound is amazing!

    Posted .

    I really want to give these a 5 star rating just because the sound quality is awesome and the bass is ridiculous. I own Beats by Dre and these sound wayyyy better. However, they didn't do the Bluetooth range correctly. You can go about 15 ft away but it gets distorted if you go any further. I basically have to keep my phone in my pocket. I would like to leave the phone on my desk and freely walk around. Its true, one earpiece may fall out of your ear from time to time. And, the neck part will move as well. I can live with both of those but the Bluetooth range is really my only issue. I own the corded Sol Republic headphones and these sound just as good as those. The call quality is crisp and clear, and the pairing is super easy. I was so happy to see that they finally made a Bluetooth headset. With a little tweaking these would be perfect.

    after almost a month of usage

    |
    Posted .

    so, i think these are pretty good for the price. one full charge will last me 5 full days and maybe a lil more. what i mean 5 full days is this, I turn them on while on my way to work, and i shut them down when i get to work. thats about a full hour of usage right there. i use them again when i leave work until i get home, thats about another hour of usage. doing this over the course of 5 work days i still have some juice left for weekend use. so i see a full week of usage for the amount of time i use them for. i'm not sure how everyone else will use them. the audio quality sounds great to me. the earpieces take some getting used to. when you put them in, they really cause a suction in your years so its muffles outside sound a lot. if your going to be talking to someone, better take them off your ears. also if you happen to pause the music and not play music for some time, but the bluetooth headset is still connected but in standby mode, i noticed when i turned the music back on, that there is some lag and disconnects every so often. but once i turned off the product and turned it back on, this issue corrected itself. the call quality is what i was worried about, but its pretty good. not as good as when your hearing music, but i would say they are about a step down in audio quality compared to say apple earbuds. i was able to hear the person on the other end very well, the one slight downside is since the mic port is on the neck portion of the headset and not on the earbud cord, you have to make sure there is no jacket or sweater or scarf covering the mic, otherwise the person on the other end may not hear you. but for the price and audio quality, i think its a purchase worth making.

    All-day battery life and good sound

    |
    Posted .

    SOL Republic makes the claim that the Shadow Bluetooth headphones offer "wired-equivalent" sound - and I'm inclined to agree. While they are not in the same class as a high-end set of UltimateEars in-ear monitors, the Shadow has clean sound, with clear highs (probably thanks to AptX technology) and deep, solid bass. They are not the most neutral set of headphones out there - they are definitely bass-oriented - but they don't sacrifice performance at other frequencies to achieve their bass performance. Comfort-wise, I am using the gels that came preinstalled on the Shadow - the headphones come with four different size soft ear gels, so most people should be able to find a good fit. You'll want to find a get that gives you a tight fit in your ear, otherwise you'll suffer from poor bass. Thanks to the in-ear monitor design, these do a decent job of isolating you from surrounding noise. While they won't make your last-row seat on the CRJ into a Zen meditation room, they are good at keeping normal room noise from intruding into your music. SOL Republic claims eight hour battery life, and based on my use, that sounds reasonable. The battery lasts through a typical workday for me, albeit at a fairly low volume level.

    Stylish but not functional

    |
    Posted .

    From early reviews of this product, I was expecting a great successor to the oft-seen LG Tone bluetooth headphones that I was well accustomed to. However, the Sol Shadow's major issue is that it slips off my neck. It's also relatively light, so sometimes it falls off and I barely notice it's happening. Not only that, but the lack of some kind of holster for the earbuds means that if you don't have both in your ears they swing around quite a bit. If you tuck the free earbuds in your shirt collar, the band is more likely to slip off of your neck. Not only that, but the battery life compares poorly to the LG Tone. I used to go almost two whole days before needing to charge my previous headphones and my usage was several active hours per day and standby up to 8 hours per day. I'd be lucky if the Sol Shadow would last more than a single day with regular use, I find that if I listen to them most of the morning (4+ hours) they will almost certainly be dead by day's end. If the Shadow was my first pair of bluetooth headphones, I might find them more impressive. Certainly their style is nice and the quality of the sound is superior to competitors. But practical considerations are king for me, and poor fit + poor battery life make this a purely average product. Not to mention their price exceeds the LG Tone, which I would much more readily suggest.

    Good sound quality, comfortable, not perfect

    |
    Posted .

    I bought these headphones for working out. So far, they are excellent for walking and light exercise, but I haven't yet tried them for biking or other rigorous workouts. The sound quality is really good (so are my other Sol Republic wired headphones), and they fit well into my ear (not always the case with other headphones). I like the weight of them as it keeps the headphones in place on my neck and shoulders. I find myself using them around the house a lot, even though I purchased them with only exercise in mind. This is where I discovered that the bluetooth range is pretty limited. If I walk into the next room, just 15-20 feet away from my phone, the connection gets weak and full of static. A little surprising because the Jawbone bluetooth speaker that I own seems to have much better range. Not really a big flaw because these Sol Republic headphones are likely to stay very near my phone for most use, especially exercise.

    Nice for stationary use

    Pros: sound quality is great, the buds do block out a lot of outside noises, the buttons are easy to navigate and predominant. Good battery life, I rarely need to charge it during the day of I remember to plug it in at night. Cons:they are not very collar shirt friendly, no traction so it also moves around on a lot of shirts or just falls off. I don't are how these could be very friendly for anyone working out, they have a tendency of falling off with much movement and I'm am average to smaller build person. I chose these after my LG tone pros died from a fried chip, I liked the magnetic golfer for the buds and miss it, these have better sound.

    Good sound quality and they connect fast.

    |
    Posted .

    I've been using these for three months. I pretty much use them daily for walking and some modest exercise and sometimes sleep in them. Pros - 1) They connect to your phone very fast and stay connected. If you hear clicking or interference see #4 below. 2) The sound quality is very good. 3) Water resistant - I've worn them in the shower! No problems with sweating. The usb charger flap seems to be holding up well. 4) They are durable - no noticeable signs of wear and tear. 4) Decent price point (under $80) 5) You get three or four sizes of rubber tips, try them out for the size that you like. 6) They are rated at 6 hours of play per charge - I haven't hit that limit yet - also they charge pretty quickly (blue light on headphone indicates completed. Red light is still charging). 7) Phone calls work - callers can always understand or hear me just fine (I just can't hear me - see #1 & 2 below). Cons - 1) In general - with ear plug headphones, you feel like you're wearing a stethoscope. You can hear your breathing and heartbeat and every step you take. I actually bought softer shoes to alleviate the noise in my ears while walking to the bus. 2) They really block out the noise around you, so be careful on the streets and on the bus. 3) The neck strap slides on your neck off to one side or the other. You will have to adjust it occasionally while active - like mowing the lawn or jogging - especially the sweatier you get. 4) Put the phone in your front right pocket because the antenna is on the right side of the headphone. Otherwise, you'll get more sound dropouts. 5) You can only skip a song, you can't go backwards with the controls on the headphones. Overall - for the price, I can't imagine a better quality ear bud headphone - they aren't perfect, but they work very well and sound very good. I listen to rap, rock, pop, and stream through hulu, netflix, youtube, apple music, google play music, and my phone, pc - i've tried it gaming once - meh.

    Great sound for being wireless

    |
    Posted .

    The sound quality is pretty good for being wireless. I purchased these the same time I purchased the Plantronics BackBeat Fit. Between the two, these SOL republics have better sound quality overall than the Plantronics BackBeat Fit. As for workouts/running, I found that these headphones did not sit very well around my neck. The neck is a little too short in my opinion and slightly heavy. They would slide off and when I did certain workouts, they would pull and slip right off. The SOL Republic Shadow is not necessarily made for working out, but I really did enjoy the sound quality and wanted to see how durable they were. It dropped once due to it slipping off, but it still worked well. The call quality was good and clear sounding. Range between device and headphones was a decent 10-20 ft before breaking up. Overall, these headphones are best for light use. Light walking, office use, studio use, etc. These are not meant for intense workouts. Sound is crisp, clear, and decent bass.

    Very good overall

    I was about to buy one of the LG wireless headphones when I saw this one online. Reviews were pretty good so I decided to go check it out and picked it over LG. The neck part is made of soft plastic and feel more comfortable than the LG; sound quality is very good; you really forgot you wear it within a few minutes- I use it with both Iphone and HTC android. They can be paired with 2 phones at a time. And the battery life is way better than expected; I charge it twice a week but always have plenty of battery left before doing it. i use it for calls and to listen to musics during the day. I really like isolation from the outside you get from this king of headphones. Great buy!
