Anthem Tracks HD On-Ear Headphones Giveaway and Review
Anyone that has been following this blog for any length of time knows that I’m a huge fan of music. I listen to all kinds of it, but mostly country, rock, and heavy metal. Music is cathartic. There is a song for every emotion and feeling. And nothing sucks more than having to listen to a great song on headphones and the song sounds hollow or distant. Or worse, they seem to amplify ambient noise around you, drowning out the song completely.
For Christmas, my son asked for a set of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. While I know that quality sound isn’t cheap, I cringe at the thought of paying $200 or more for headphones. I think my max is about $150, so I started looking around at what I could get my son that was good quality but won’t break the bank. That’s when I came across the Anthem Tracks HD On-Ear Headphones.
Sol republic recently announced the debut of its Michael Phelps-inspired Tracks HD Anthem headphones. Throughout his 16-year swimming career, Michael and music have become synonymous with one another. Prior to any race, Michael used headphones and music for motivation and focus. Embracing his love of music and celebrating his success as the most decorated athlete of all time, the SOL REPUBLIC Anthem HD headphones feature an exclusive red, white and blue design with a portion of all proceeds benefitting the Michael Phelps Foundation.
Like Phelps, I believe that music is life. When we rode into Iraq just prior to midnight on March 19, 2003, we had music to usher in the event. When we went into Baghdad for the first time, music was our companion. In Afghanistan, music helped me through some rough times there. Sol Republic understands the power of music.
“We believe music is emotion. And for athletes, it’s a great way to motivate. We also believe that if music sounds better, it feels better. Great music combined with great sound is a powerful combination that can drive us all in whatever sport we play. Michael is an inspiration for many reasons but certainly for us at SOL REPUBLIC he’s a great reminder of how powerful music is when it’s the soundtrack of our lives,” said Kevin Lee SOL REPUBLIC CEO and co-founder.
Their philosophy is simple.
Anthem HD headphones combine stunning jewel-toned red and dark blue accents over a pearl white foundation, and deliver the deep bass and emotional power of music that SOL REPUBLIC headphones are known for.
