Product Review: Sol Republic Jax Headphones

What Is it: The Sol Republic Jax In-Ear Headphones.

Price and Where to Buy: $30 on Sol Republic’s website and on Amazon.


  • Sound isolating ear buds block out a good amount of external noise, and provide great listening quality.
  • Cushioned headphones come with four different ear piece sizes for extra comfort.
  • Built-in remote and microphone allows you to control music or use with your phone.
  • Comfortable to wear.
  • Flat cable is designed to prevent tangles.

Cons: None that we can think of!

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. These in-ear headphones are great for travel—easy to transport but still block out a lot of outside noise.
  • Portability: 10/10. The tangle-free cable make these headphones perfect for travel.
  • Value: 7/10. You can definitely get cheaper ear buds, but they won’t be as high-quality as the Jax.
  • Durability: 10/10. These seem durable and are backed by a one year warranty from Sol Republic.
  • Cool Factor: 9/10. The Jax come in fun colors and are stylish.

Final Verdict: At this price point, the quality of the Jax In-Ear Headphones can’t be beat!
