We’d expect Michael Phelps to inspire a whole new generation of swimmers. However, it looks like he’s inspiring a whole new line of headphones as well.
If you watched any of the summer Olympics, you probably watched swimming. And if you watched swimming, you probably noticed that Phelps likes to rock out before he competes. Someone at Sol Republic certainly noticed—and now they’ve snapped up the world’s most famous swimmer for a new line of Tracks HD Anthem headphones.
The product features a new red, white and blue design, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Michael Phelps Foundation.
Other features include interchangeable pieces that work with the entire Tracks Remix system, with nearly indestructible FlexTech Sound Track headbands and interchangeable color cables with a remote and microphone. This model also has the V10 HD Sound Engine, which boasts deeper bass, higher clarity and crisp vocals.
“Swimming is my sport, but music is my life. Before every race, there are songs that motivate me to train hard, swim fast and win. These songs are my soundtrack of life,” said Phelps. “I celebrate music because it not only motivated me to swim faster, but because it plays a role in every part of my life. Sol Republic is built on the philosophy that songs and music help shape our lives and we share a passion for music and how great sound can inspire anyone to victory.”
Sol Republic is selling Tracks HD Anthem headphones now, with an MSRP of $149.99.
