Relays Sport Wireless Earbuds is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Two pair in less than a year I’ve owned two pairs of these in just under a year. I use them 6 days a week, between 30-120 minutes a day (270 minutes a week). They’re comfortable and the sound quality is very good. They do charge pretty fast and for the most part last for more than a few hours. Both my sets would turn off mid workout and showed issues with battery charging within a month or two of ownership. Both ended up completely failing me (the first after about two months), the second after 8 months. I noticed the first pair’s battery compartment would start to separate at the seams when unplugging the charger. The second one did this too, but not as bad. I suspect the weak joint allowed moisture to get through and compromise the internals. I’m currently reaching out to SOL to try and determine what my options are or get my money back. It’s a good idea that needs some tweaking and quality control. I’ve bought several of these headphones for friends and family; all whom have been pleased with them and have not faced the same problems that I have experienced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total flop There were a lot of things I liked about these headphones, but they had one major problem that I couldn't overlook: they constantly made a clicking/buzzing noise in the background. I could hear it even with music playing (starting the first time I used them!). I was really disappointed because I loved the fit of them, which I am very picky about. They were easy to connect to my phone, they were a fair price, and the sound quality was good. I ended up returning them because of this noise issue though, because it was very irritating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is my second pair of relays and I love them! I had my old pair for years and they still work fine I just wanted the mint color. Great product for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for the price! I have a pair of more expensive earphones(Bose, Sony) I work out with, the sound is good but wasn't really happy with the fit, after giving these a try I haven't gone back to my other ones. The fit is really good and they sound great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love how small but don't last I love how small these are. But I do have two significant problems. They fall out of my ears. And the plastic covering the volume buttons tears after not much use. So now the earphones aren’t water resistant anymore and the buttons don’t work anymore. And I haven’t use them that long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the gym One of the few buds that actually fit my ears and stay put. Sound quality is actually pretty good for Bluetooth buds in this price range, especially if you switch them to "outdoor mode". Not sure why SOL made the poorer quality "indoor mode" default, I'm guessing the indoor mode may use less battery. So far no problems with battery life, the Bluetooth range is very good, hasn't dropped a connection yet. The only real complaint I have is the user instructions supplied are pictorial format and written instructions cannot be found anywhere on the SOL website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set of gym headphones for money I purchased these about a months ago and am very happy. I had some other headphones from SOL and they lasted me many years so when I went to go buy some others I went to SOL and saw that these were made for gym / activity so I got them. They are great light / small and charge quickly. Controls for music are right near the ear so you can switch easily

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bear With Me Before anyone is baffled by the rating, I’d like to clarify that this review is based (which may seem kinda dumb) on aesthetics, DURABILITY, ease of connectivity, and material quality. I bought these over a year ago online, captivated by the black and copper color. Immediately I loved them, the color was unique, the packaging was beautiful, the tools and extra buds were helpful, the weight was nonexistent, and though the two transmitter-type boxes were quirky but fun to wear. I listened to music day and night, and I used them (shriveled up in my pocket, left on the floor, thrown around, tucked away nicely) to my heart’s content, without noticing detrimental effects. BUT I lost them after 5 months of use. I thought I had seen the last of them after that day, but I was not disappointed because the value for the price I paid was great. Three months later (on 07/08/19) I found them in the backseat of a family member’s car, with one of the wires stuck on the base of the car-seat adjustment system. I tried turning them on and to my surprise they worked, connecting easily to my new phone! BOTTOMLINE - I would recommend these if you’re looking for lightweight, comfortable, durable (and I mean durable), nicely-looking earphones for recreational use. The sound is decent. CONS - The bass is not all that great and you could probably get better bass and balance for a few more bucks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They mean waterproof, but lost them allot I bought this item around 6 months ago, and boy oh boy it has been a rollercoaster. I lost them on a bus, and had to go to some middle school kid's house to get them back, then lost them again shortly after and couldn't find them for months. I had lost them from December 2018 till tonight, March 22 2019. Where did I find them this time? Outside. On the dirt. These earbuds have been through a whole Idaho winter of snow and rain and to my extreme surprise, they still work. They sound just as amazing as the day I got them. I am in complete shock. When they say these are waterproof, THEY MEAN IT. The only reason I gave this item 4 stars instead of 5 is because of how easy they are to lose. You can't just leave these hanging on your neck when you're not using them like other wireless earbuds. They slip right off without you even knowing most of the time. I wish they had a clip in front, or even a magnet between the buds like a lot of Bluetooth earbuds do. Without the heavy plastic in the back like most of these earbuds have, they just don't stay on. But otherwise, this is an amazing product for an amazing price. Absolutely recommend these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor audio quality These headphones give a soft crackling/humming noise in the background of what I listen to (podcasts/music). They also have an annoying voice that says "LOW BATTERY. CHARGE NOW" at high volume, even if they have an hour left.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not comfortable I really wanted to love these but sadly I do not. Despite trying each and every set of earbud cushions, none really protects you from the sharp plastic lip that hurts the inside of your ear. Additionally, I have been wend MUCH cheaper wireless earphones that had better sound. My advice, unfortunately is to give these a miss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad to have these back This is my second pair of Relays Sport Wireless. 1st pair developed some defects after a couple of years, may have been due to me dropping the earbuds on concrete floor, but I'm not complaining about that. I needed a new set of earbuds so I got some jabra version for Christmas. The cord was ridiculously long and I couldn't deal with them, so I returned them to the box store where I bought them. I got online and found I could order another pair directly from the Sol website. I was so happy to get my Relays Sport wireless headset back! They are lightweight, compact, great fit and sound. The cord is very short and goes around the back of my neck. They don't bounce while jogging/running. Overall, I am very happy with these and will definitely buy another pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wouldn't reccomend I've had these headphones for a year and now they are no longer working just as the warranty period has passed, perfect! While they worked they were okay, sound was good but distance the phone could be from the headphone is very short. There are better headphones on the market. Don't waste your money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Durability Issues I used them lightly over the course of the year and they were great. However, in the Spring I started running on a daily basis and the on/off button stopped working. Unfortunately the one year manufacturer's warranty had just ended, so the headphones became pretty much junk at that point. It's a shame because I really liked these headphones. The sound was great and it felt like a quality product until the button failed. I give these headphones one star because they only lasted a year of relatively moderate use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these I bought these at least 6 months ago, not sure if it’s been a year yet. Still working great! Only complaint is when the battery is low it will say “battery low, charge now” once a minute at least so it kind of ruins the rest of my workout bc I can’t listen to music while it keeps doing that every minute

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good earbuds, but... When I am using them they sound great! But when the battery level hits 50% on the earbuds, a voice continuously says, "Battery low, charge now." The battery level is at 50%

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gym rat I received these as a X-mas gift and loved everything about them. However, the 1st pair my right ear stopped working. Sol Republic kindly replaced the headphones. Now, pair # 2 has been going strong for over a year now. I am starting to notice that the forward button is not being consistent. Other than that, the sound is amazing for the cost. I just ordered another pair, since the price has been reduced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3rd time wasn't a charm I had bought a pair of the Relays as a impulse buy, and was blown away at the soundstage. These sound amazing for the money, and I'm picky about audio. I was very pleased. All's good and then the set just stops working. Had receipt and got it exchanged. 4 days later, the right side goes out. I go back, and after alot of arguing, they store replaced again. Not even a week, and this one stopped holding a charge. Back to the store, only to be told they no longer handle any earbuds returns because it's not hygienic!! I reached out to Sol republic and explained all the hassle, and they said they would replace. Ok, solved. Then in the chaos, I couldn't find my receipt. Emailed back and explained, and was blown off. Now, I'm so picky about sound, and I love these. All I wanted was a working pair, and instead have a non working pair and I'm 80 dollars poorer. The worst customer support ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I bought these about a month and so happy I did. Great, clear music. Best headphones I’ve ever purchased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed in quality Bought these headphones mid November 2017. Within a couple months, the power lights weren't lighting up when I would turn the headphones on and off, relying on my phone to show when it connected to Bluetooth. Well, less than 6 months of use (~4 hours of use a week) They have completely quit working. I have plugged them in to charge and the blue light won't even turn on to acknowledge the power supply. I have not exposed these to any extreme temperatures or water, so its a glitch in the headphones and not from misuse.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh... The sound quality is good but buttons are not that easy to manipulate if you wear gloves for training, also I expected the sound to be different, like it is not that clean and it is loud but it could be annoying not an enjoyable experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best earbuds for Motorcycles I absolutely love these! I used the wired relays for a long time as they stayed in my ears no matter what and sounded great. The best thing was that they were the only earbuds that would actually remain in my ears after putting on my motorcycle helmet! Once the wireless ones became available I ordered them immediately. They stay in just as well and now there's no wire to worry about with the helmet strap and they sound amazing, block wind noise and last forever. I really think Sol should advertise these to motorcyclists as I know I'm not the only one that had a problem with earbuds coming out. I've gifted these to my family members that ride and they love them as well. Thanks Sol!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great but flawed Sound quality is great and they are brilliant for the gym don't fall out etc however there are a few flaws such as the obnoxious blue bright light that makes you look like a Christmas tree and more importantly it scares the shit out of me every time the battery is low because a guy screams down your ear "BATTERY LOW CHARGE NOW" every 5 seconds

Can’t get them to turn off

Asked by: Kcrush
Thanks for you responses. I’ve used these headphones for over a year, so I know that I need to hold the power button for a few seconds. But now after I charge them and use them, I can’t get them to turn off. So then they drain the battery and I have to recharge them in order to use them. I have recharged them several times, but still can’t turn them off.

I have got a SOL REPUBLIC WIRELESS EARBUDS, I want to connect it to my Samsung A7 or iPhone 11, but I do not know whether the bluetooth is on or not, what should I do?

Asked by: Soheila
Once you power on the head phones, and they do not automatically connect to blue tooth, you will hear a voice in the head phones that says "ready to pair" , so for the headphones, the blue tooth is already on. Now go to your Samsung or apple phone and turn on the blue tooth and look for this headset. You should be able to connect no problem.
