Relays Active Headphones Giveaway

I was recently sent a pair of Sol Republic's Relays headphones to review (I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions are my own) and have to admit that while I was skeptical when I first saw them, and now they are my favorites.  Very comfortable, great sound, and they freaking stay in my ears while running, cooking, kettle bells, on the rowing machine, and I even sometimes wear them when I am sleeping.  (Sometimes when I can't sleep I put on a pod cast and it lulls me to sleep) I have slept with them all night in my ears on multiple occasions and they do not make any part of my ears sore.

They come with four different size options for your ears, which is key to helping them stay in and be super comfortable.

Other things that make them great, they angle in

The outside ring is cushy, not hard and inflexible.
I don't have to fiddle with my iPod, iPhone, or iPad to adjust the volume, it's right on the cord, along with the ability to stop or play what I am listening to, and did you know you can take a picture from your iPhone using the middle button on this also when in camera mode?
Plus it has a microphone, so if someone calls I can talk to them hands free while cleaning, driving, etc.

It also has a clip to minimize cord swing.
Want more info?  Check out their video
They are also giving away free downloads to the song on the video by Run DMT. You can download it HERE

Fun facts:  Did you know most millennials spend 4 hours on headphones every day and own 3+ pair? Crazy! I think I own at least 7 pairs.  and they are all gathering dust right now except my Relays.

Preferred song to listen to on loop when running a marathon: according to a survey
1. Eye of the Tiger   Survivor
2. Roar    Katy Perry (I would go with this one)
3. Chariots of Fire  Vangelis
4. Stronger   Kanye West
5. Freebird   Lynyrd Skynyrd
6. We Are The Champions  Queen
Want to win a pair for yourself? It's a $79.99 value, trust me, they are amazing.

  6. Not staying in my ears. I found some great ones that are cheaper from Phillips but haen't seen them since. They loop over my ears and stay on...I am worried though because the cheaper headphones tend to not last long.. these are 2 years old.... Relay look FAB! Thanks for sharing these.

  7. I don't like the sound on mine. I'm a music snob too so it drives me crazy that the ones that stay in my ears the best are the worst sounding.

  10. They look great! I am wireless girl but I find the most comfortable are the flat speakers and after about a year I have to replace - sweat corrosion - gross. I wish I could find ear buds that were actually comfy.

  14. I have one pair that I thought I liked, but am looking to replace them. The "hook over my ear" is starting to bug me.

  15. These look great. Love the clip and the shape. I have one pair that goes inside my ears and one pair that sits on my ears. Would love some that are comfy enough to wear to bed! And most of that music is my faves!

  35. I can't stand how when I start jogging, the ear buds are constantly being tugged out of my ears especially in the colder months when I am usually wearing two layers. I put the cord between my 2 shirts and as I exercise it seems to keep getting tugged. It drives me nuts.
