SOLA Headphones are Solar Charging and Wireless

Think about it, these pair of wireless buds rejuice as you enjoy your music – sounds like a good plan to me! SOLA headphones are designed in the form of a wireless headset positioned in a neckband. There are two earbuds that are each nestled inside of one of two housing units at the end of the neckband. The buds are attached to a cable that extends when the user is ready to put the buds in their ears and jam out to some tunes. Those two units, while showcasing varying colorways and patterns (like gold, silver, red, black, and camouflage), actually feature solar panels that absorb the sunlight and process it into power to supply SOLA.

SOLA holds a 200 mAh battery that supplies the buds with about 9 hours of use on a single charge over Bluetooth 4.1 technology. It’ll take about two hours to juice the buds using the accompanied USB cable. Once SOLA is in the sun, these wireless headphones are supplied with an additional 2 to 3 hours of run time. If indoors, a battery level indicator helps users keep track of how much operating time they have left. There is also a microphone and multifunction built into the headset for answering and ending calls up to 30 feet away from your phone.

As SOLA writes via their Indiegogo campaign, “distance will not sacrifice the sound quality of the music.” In fact, these buds deliver sound quality comparable to many high-endprofessional headphones, according to SOLA’s creators. That being said, these buds hold 6.7mm dynamic drivers operating at an impedance of 32 ohms, and can reach a frequency response of 20 to 20,000 Hertz.

The headphones are also said to be built quite durably. While the frame isn’t waterproof, the buds are comprised of materials that can handle a splash or two. The creators advise simply wiping off the frame and wearers should be all good to go.

If you’re interested in snagging the first ever pair of solar-powered headphones, head over to Indiegogo to grab SOLA headphones at $30 off of the MSRP of $59. That means you’ll pay $29 plus shipping fees. Not bad! Orders ship to backers July 2017.
