What we like about these wireless headphones from Sol Republic comes down to the design. Rather than cramming all the technology and hardware into the earbud itself resulting in unwanted bulk or an oversized fit, the design of the Relay Sports Wireless places the batteries & electronics into 2 pods on the connecting wire you wear around your neck. This also makes it easier to pull one out for conversation without missing a step.
