SOL REPUBLIC Announces Headphone Collaboration with Skating Icon Erik Ellington
September 19, 2013 – San Francisco, CA. – SOL REPUBLIC announced the Tracks HD Ellington headphones today, the result of a collaboration with world-renowned skater Erik Ellington. Featuring V10 Sound Engines, Tracks HD Ellington is fully loaded with deeper bass, clearer highs and crisp vocals. Tracks HD Ellington headphones are part of SOL REPUBLIC’s Exclusive Edition collection, available online and at select stores that embody action sports and the culture it represents.
“I designed the graphics for the Ellington/SOL REPUBLIC collab based on a long running board graphic I have with Deathwish skateboards,” stated Erik Ellington. “The graphic is iconic for me so it was the first thing I thought of to do. It turned out amazing and I couldn’t be happier with it.”
The Tracks HD Ellington Sound Track band is made of FlexTech™, SOL REPUBLIC’s advance polymer compound, a lightweight and nearly indestructible material that can withstand being twisted and bent without breaking. With a combination of black and white skulls, and deep red undercoat highlighting the Ellington logo, these headphones mirror Ellington’s fearless persona. Featuring a three-button remote and microphone technology along with large, lightweight ear cushions the Tracks HD Ellington headphones provide extreme comfort and hi-tech capabilities, providing an unrivaled experience for the listener.
“Erik’s headphone is our first ever, athlete-inspired, collaborative project,” noted Brian Cassaro, GM of Action Sports for SOL REPUBLIC. “We are excited to allow our Saviors of Sound the ability to express themselves through exclusive products so they can speak to their fans and share SOL REPUBLIC with them. This is the first of many limited edition collaborative projects with our athletes that are exclusively available through our Action Sports and Tastemaker retailers.”
