A trio of on-ears from this year's Olympian headphone company of choice
Since Michael Phelps was seen sporting a pair in London this summer, Sol Republic headphones have been everywhere. And there's plenty of curiosity about the company itself, run by industry veterans Scott Hix and Kevin Lee, the son of Noel Lee — the Head Monster of Monster Cable, and the man who pretty much built today's headphone industry as the manufacturing force behind Beats.
All well and good. But should you buy headphones endorsed by a guy with water in his ears?
