Michael Phelps 2012 Olympics 4x100 Freestyle Relay headphones

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Anyone know what kind of headphones Michael Phelps was wearing just prior to the 2012 London Olympics 4x100 meter freestyle relay?  If those sound as good as they look, then they are some bad ass phones!!!

 

Any help in locating a brand and model number is greatly appreciated.

 

Regards

If they are the same pairs he wore at the US Trials, they probably Sol Republic.

If you like a lot of bass they are not to bad, but the mids are recessed, the treble is not to bad though. Overall I found they pressed to much on my ears for comfort and since I live for the mids, I quickly returned them. Have to say though I tried a pair of Monster Ncredible Ntunes the other day and the SOL Tracks spank the Monsters by a huge margin in my opinion and the SOL's have a full Apple set of controls which are better implemented than the talk button on the Monsters.

He was not wearing the HDs, he was wearing the unreleased at the time Ultras.

Ultras?  After a quick look on the internet, I found that some places are carrying them, such as amazon and J&R, but its not on the Sol website (EDIT: It's on their shop site).  Any more information on these?  A good bite at $180?
