Sol Republic releases Amps Air + Noise Cancelling True Wireless Earphones
SOL REPUBLIC has taken us by surprise with their third product release of the year. The Amps Air + wireless earphones bring some serious enhancements to their wireless Amps 2.0 design. Most notably, the addition of active noise cancellation puts them in a different league. Let’s dive a bit deeper into the details, shall we?
It has been stated by SOL REPUBLIC that the “plus” edition brings an even more ergonomic fit to the table than its predecessor. Its charging case has also been downsized for greater portability. Their battery life of 6 hours ramps up to stunning 24 hours without the noise cancellation. I’d assume 8 hours out of the case and two more full charges provided by it. The new Amps Air’s use USB-C quick charging just to make the deal even sweeter.
The Amps Air + will have an ambient noise pass-through mode for those who’d like the option of greater awareness of their surroundings. SOL isn’t straying from the popular tap control design that this market has heavily embraced. Built in IR sensors provide automatic play/pause functionality when the user places them in or removes them from their ears. Personally, I appreciate such conveniences when it comes to true wireless.
Sound quality has been reportedly improved on the Amps Air +. Bluetooth 5.0 and an IPX4 water resistance rating make the Amps Air + an excellent way to bring hifi to the gym. These specs do seem to align a bit with those of the Apple Airpods Pro. However, at $199, Sol has taken on the competition with a better value and longer battery life. They were officially released earlier today, and I look forward to getting my hands on them for a review! Stay tuned.
They are now available at SOL REPUBLIC’s website in Black, Champagne, and Steel Grey
