SOL REPUB­LIC JAX EAR­PHONES – £34.99 OKAY, be­fore we go any fur­ther, th­ese things have tan­gle-free ca­bles!

Gone are the days where you spent longer un­tan­gling the bug­gers than lis­ten­ing to mu­sic.

And when you eas­ily pull them out your pocket, with not a tan­gle in sight, you’ll no­tice the Sol Repub­lic ear­phones are very bass-heavy.

Be­cause of that, true “wub-wub” seek­ers out there will have a mas­sive cheesy grin on their face as their brains turn to liq­uid from in­tense vi­bra­tion.

Al­though the idea of Skrillex’s brain melt­ing may be good news to some, I do have to point out that th­ese ear­pieces will NOT, in fact, turn your grey mat­ter into a Slush Puppy. What they will do, though, is give you a good all-round lis­ten­ing ex­pe­ri­ence which won’t dis­tort, no mat­ter how loud they get.

They work well, they don’t tan­gle and, if you ask me, they look pretty spec­tac­u­lar too.

It’s a more un­der­stated look that they’ve gone for, but I ap­pre­ci­ate that. Some peo­ple don’t want cum­ber­some chunks of me­tal bal­anced on their heads. Some of us want to be able to fit through doors!

Th­ese are a re­ally good set of ear­phones which is more im­pres­sive given the price. You’d ex­pect to pay quite a bit more for this level of sound qual­ity.
