Shadow Wireless Earbuds is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 118.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great earbuds! I bought them for all purpose use and while working out. It’s so nice to have the wireless feature. I sometimes forget I have them around my neck. For being a wireless earbud, the sound quality is great also.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Where is the Bass? I just bought these and all I hear is top end and over accentuated midrange! Am I missing something here? I have to bass boost at 60hz + @12 db to sound decent!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great hardware, poor software The great: their primary job, making sound, is done very well. The sound quality is the best I’ve had from any other earphone. Better than the Powerbeats3 and the Samsung Level equivalent to these. The good: hardware execution. The batteries are placed in an area such that it maintaines balance and prevents the headphones from wanting to slip off one side to the other. Water resistance and high flexibility are also very good positives. The earbuds also do a good job at isolating. The bad: sometimes the physical buttons on the device can be a little difficult to operate, you must be quite firm when using them. The earbuds also extend enough out of your ear that it can be uncomfortable sleeping with them on if you’re a side-sleeper. They also do not stay around the neck if engaging in any type of exercise. The ugly: the entire software experience. To start, the power on, power off, volume adjustment, and low battery tones are all quite uncomfortably loud. It’s to the point where I just simply do not turn these on and off while they’re in my ear. Holding the volume buttons for quick volume adjustment is also futile as it’s just unreasonably slow going from one volume to the next. And finally, the absolute worst thing about these headphones, the “feature” that has me actively looking for a better alternative, is the frequency and volume of the low battery notification. Once your battery is low, every MINUTE on the minute a blaringly loud voice cuts through whatever you were listening to “BATTERY LOW; CHARGE NOW.” Wouldn’t it have been easier to just have a soft, brief tone notify you maybe thrice at the most? Because of the low battery notification these headphones are unusable at a lower battery percentage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long time user of Sol Republic headphones I got these earphones as a gift I put on my list, I have been a fan of Sol Republic headphones, but when I got the Calvin Harris headphones they went out after 3 months of use and yes, I was a bit disappointed, but Sol Republic was good enough to send me these and I have been using them none stop, they are comfortable, battery life is good, and easy to set up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have had it for 2-3 years, still holding up. Was bought as a gift for me at the SFO airport for $100, and I have to say that these are some pretty durable earbuds. The only thing that wasn't durable was the rubber charging port cover, broke off after light use in the first 3 months. I just recently left it in my pants pocket and it went through the washer and dryer! Still works and charges perfectly fine after drying for a day. One of the speaker "covers" that filter the music came off and was lost, so I have to resort to stuffing a small piece of cotton to balance the volume or else I will destroy my hearing. Other than that, excellent sound quality and I can't believe after all this time it still lives up to its 8 hour battery life and charges flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best Sound Quality for the Price I've been using SOL Shadow for about a year now and absolutely Love the Quality of the Sound. The Battery Life is great. Id recommend this for anyone that loves Some Bass with Clear Trebles.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sound, horrible build quality. First pair I purchased broke after a few months. Ear piece broke came off the cord one day. Thought maybe I had been to rough on them, and bought a second pair. Ear piece stayed connected, but after only six months or so, they started to develop bubbles. Then more. And more. It was okay for a bit, but now I have this (see images): Can't afford to buy $100 headphones over and over again. Or recommend them either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing exercise companion & a good BT headphone with some cons These are very light, to the point that the only thing that reminds you of its presence, is the earpiece that's in your ear. This can be a pro or con, con if you'd have this around your neck and be roaming around, you'd lose it! Pro for all the others.Amazing built quality, water resistant; sweat won't do anything, a little drizzle or even lite-medium rain too won't bother it. Heavy rain might get to its mic but nothing else. Mic may or may not to coated with water resistant nano coating, so I won't take the risk of wearing this on very heavy rain.The left side has the BT antenna, if you hold it, like grabbing it fully, there are some momentary connection issues. But nothing major. The BT range is epic if you'd only use it with your phone in your pocket or within the same room. If you go to the next room, the connection starts to get sketchy, the second room it totally disconnects. I also own HD4.40 BT and I can roam around the whole house with it, PC or phone, no matter the source connection, BT connection is rock solid. With Shadow though, its range is just line of sight.Works well for walking, up-down exercises like weight lifting etc is fine, even cycling where you might go up & down when you hit a bumpy road. However, if you jog or make any back and forth movements like bench and stuff, this would fall off, I mean the band; you'd still have it connected to your ear and it'll hang from it just fine. Just use it for walking, while sitting or during cycling.Amazingly comfortable, you get three pairs of different sized ear tips; it reads lifetime free ear tips replacement, you can contact their customer support if you ever need one. Very light & comfortable, all wear this for hours straight.micro USB connection, has volume up-down and play-pause-FFW. The button placement is something that gets use to given time, to start off though, its a painAudio quality is amazing! Has nice stereo separation, some sound stage as well; which is astouding considering the size of it & this being BT. I don't think this version has BT contrary to some reviews I read online. Even without aptX the audio quality is superb!Battery life will be 5-7 days if you'd only use it for an hour or so daily while exercising; which is my use case. HD4.40BT for other use, this while walking.Overall, go for Relays Sport from the same SOL if you need something for hardcore exercising or dancing; this for everything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound quality, product as described Have had this for a month now. Loving the bass. No complaints so far. Only thing I wish is it had a retractable wires. Also might be the micro usb port cover be a bit more robust - likely to wear out quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Quality for Price I absolutely love these ear phones. I have not one bad thing to say about them. The quality for the price is amazing, and even so much better than many more expensive pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these I purchased a pair of the limited edition Tiger Woods headphones and was blown away by the sound quality. Unfortunately, I no longer have them but I did replace them with another pair. I cannot use regular ear buds so these are perfect for me and they fit my ears with no worries of them falling out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound Good Product I have had these for 18 months and they still work great! Sound is awesome! Construction is amazing.....my son ran over mine with his F350 tuck 12 months ago and they still work ! Only issue is they do not stay secure around your neck.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!! But... These are so great, I got them for Christmas last year from my parents and they are by far the best earbuds I have owned, hands down. However, about a month ago, the left side audio got significantly lower than that of the right, and it is incredibly annoying. I only use them with my phone so I can't change the balance to even it out. I cannot find a solution to this problem so I might have to buy a new pair. This seems to be a common problem with earbuds like these, that is the only downside.
Date published: 2017-11-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome explains these perfectly After trying 4 other brands, I've come to the conclusion these are the best for the price. Easy operation, best sound, best fit, best price. These give you everything you need in a pair of headphones. I use them daily and haven't had any compliant with them. I wish the wire's where retractable like others I've tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound - no issues so far Coming from cabled Sennheiser Momentum In Ear headphones and Momentum 2.0 Over Ear I'm used to excellent sound and whilst the natural move might have been to another sennheiser set I wanted a headphone that was sweat proof and water resistant for general indoor training - gym work. These are a good bit cheaper than the big brand competition and a good bit more than the none branded or unknown brand competition. First impressions are excellent. Clean crisp sound with decent bass. I'm using them connected to MacBook pro on an indoor trainer while cycling or my iPhone while doing other exercise. Noise isolation is good with the standard tips. I've a set of T-Comply T200 foam tips ordered as they usually transform most headphones into even better sound. It would've been nice to get a set with them. No case was disappointing but not a deal breaker. Only time will tell on durability and drop outs but so far they sound fantastic, feel great and look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Irreplaceable. No other pair of headphones under $300 compares to Sol Republics. Two and a half years after buying my Shadows, I'm now buying another set to have in case these go out. Love their products and my ears won't tolerate anything different.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to use... While they last. These earphones work really well. They have great sound, flexible, and are also good looking, however, the internals are probably very fragile. Mine suddenly lost sound on one side, and on the other side the next day, while using them. rendering them useless. This happened to my pair. I hope the warranty works.Don't get me wrong, they're really good for their price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought these just for sound but was surprised by many other qualities. I purchased these after trying the so called pioneer of neckband style headphones and was very disappointed by all the models. Sound quality was ok but not what I was looking for. I was skeptical about this brand because I was not familiar with it but the reviews seemed highly recommended so I gave them a shot. Sound quality blew all those others away and the flexible waterproof neckband was a major plus. I wanted to pull double duty with these and use them for phone calls as well but thought these were marketed more for music and not so much for phone calls but to my surprise these cancel out background pretty excellent far better than the so called leader and pioneers of the neckband style wireless headphones. Waterproof, great sound with rich bass, flexible neckband that is almost forgotten after a few minutes and great call quality with simplistic non confusing button layout what is there not to like. i highly recommend these. If I were to lose them today I would run out and buy another pair tomorrow. These are my everyday driver, go to wireless headphones. Sol Republic got it right with these along with a very reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing These are now one of the most useful Things I own because they are completely wireless. One issue I had was that one of the ear tips got stolen and I could not find the extras that came with the earphones. Luckily Sol Republic has a free eartips for life guarantee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My GO TO Headphones I'm obsessed with these headphones as they provide great sound and connectivity. They fit perfectly in my ears and around my neck. Never had any issues or flaws happen with them. Sol Republic team is RAD and its rare to find a great company with both awesome products and people. I've also gotten countless compliments with the rose gold detail - LOVE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome headphones I was looking for wireless headphones to wear while working out because I am always afraid that I'm going to catch wired headphones on myself or equipment. I have a pair of over-the-ear SOL Republics I completely love. So, I figured that I'd purchase them and I was glad I did. They're AMAZING! They definitely did not disappoint. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought mine on a recent trip to Tokyo, the shop had over 600 headphones to try on or pair with, an amazing choice to choose from. In the end I chose the Shadow because the earbuds are very light and comfortable, (many of the other brands had a large earpiece) the sound quality is really good and it paired easily with my iphone, ipad & now at home the mac too. The neck band is no problem, don't even notice that it's there. These guys have done the homework, good job!
Date published: 2017-02-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst ever I would give them zero stars if possible. Sound is ok, if you can get them paired with anything in less than an hour. Third pair because the first two didn't work. This pair took forever to pair with IPad and won't pair with my phone. They slide all around, useless for exercise. I'm calling it a 100$ loss at this point. The only nice thing I can say is the company was great about sending replacements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the seamless pairing... ...the fact that is seamlessly goes from my phone to ipod is everything. love it light keeps a charge for ever. only negative is falling out of my ears here and there, but I am normally like raking or doing something extra when I wear them.

I have the Fantastic Shadow Headset and just wondering how do i check the charge level of the headset on the go?

Asked by: Etimos
You can check the remaining battery by pressing both volume buttons at the same time. The Shadow will then sound a tone for each 25% of battery, up to four tones for a full charge.

Will Shadow Bluetooth headphones connect to my Apple Watch 4?  I’m having trouble making the connection work. I have no trouble connecting to my iPhone.

It sounds like Dual-Device Mode has not yet been activated on your headphones. To activate Dual-Device Mode, press the Multi-Function Button (located between the volume +/- buttons) and “Volume -“ at the same time.

Trying to pair my Shadows with 1Mii Bluetooth transmitter connected to my Sony TV. Having difficulty getting them paired. Followed the steps for both devices to get them into pairing mode. 

Asked by: tcstaples
We suggest you do a factory reset on your headphones: -Please make sure Bluetooth on all other devices is turned off. -Forget the connection on your phone, turn off Bluetooth, and then restart your phone. You can then turn Bluetooth back on. -Hold down the multi-function button and volume up button at the same time for five seconds. This will send your headphones into pairing mode and then you can re-pair with your phone. If you will be using your headphones with more than one device, it may also help to verify that Dual-Device Mode has been enabled. To activate Dual-Device Mode, press the Multi-Function Button (located between the volume +/- buttons) and “Volume -“ at the same time.
