LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — SOL REPUBLIC, the lifestyle audio maker driven by innovation and crafted by industry-leading designers, will offer a first look at their five new headphone releases at CES 2019 in Las Vegas. The debuts mark the revival of the audio brand as they unveil the first all-new products in three years including a partnership with Tile, the world’s leading smart location company. Looking ahead, SOL REPUBLIC will also be designing and partnering with performing artists for limited run, custom collaboration series.
Starting with the release of the Shadow Fusion wireless headphones, the Tile integration will incorporate their lost-item technology using Bluetooth® LE, letting users track the headphones via Tile’s mobile app, waking up the device with flashing LEDs and playing a tune from the headphones until found. It will also indicate within the Tile app, the last location Bluetooth pairing was activated on the headphones to help retrace the user’s steps.
“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Tile for 2019. Integrating Tile technology into our products, starting with the Shadow Fusion, is another way we are taking the brand to the forefront of quality and performance,” explains SOL REPUBLIC Director of Product Development, Josh Poulsen. “SOL will continue pushing boundaries through 2019 with a full line-up of stylish, wireless audio products loaded with technologies and brand firsts such as ANC within both our over-ear and true wireless earbud models.”
Taking time to ensure the anticipated collection was designed using the most up to date wireless technology including Tile integration, highest Bluetooth capability and best battery life possible, SOL REPUBLIC is hitting the market in 2019 with their five new releases after previewing select products at last year’s CES.
