For many people this is a very special time of the year. The kids are back in school and there is no sign of snow (yet). County fairs are in full swing and mosquitoes are finally under control thanks to a hot and dry summer. And probably the most anticipated late-summer event? The start of football season!
It doesn’t matter whether your a die-hard NFL fan or rooting for your alumni during the NCAA season, we all have the same desire – to see our teams win (and win big!). Here in Iowa we don’t have an NFL team, so we tend to root for the Chicago Bears for the most part. There are also some cheeseheads that insist on displaying the Green Bay Packers’ flag, but fortunately those are few and far between. But one thing is certain, Iowans love their colleges. We have the typical University vs. State rivalry here between the Hawkeyes (University of Iowa) and the Cyclones (Iowa State), but the real excitement comes when they play division rivals in their quests for end-of-year bowl invites.
We consider ourselves a Hawkeye home and proudly wear shirts, coats and hats displaying our allegiance. Many of you already know we have also have a favorite headphone brand that we use around the house to keep the
noise music at bay. When we found out SOL REPUBLIC had a brand new product line that combines the love of great sound with the fanaticism of college football, we were first in line to get a pair. Our team choice? The Iowa Hawkeyes of course!
Building on their popular Tracks series of headphones, this new Tracks Collegiate Series boasts the same high-end sound quality we’ve come to expect from SOL REPUBLIC. This new line also features interchangeable bands emblazoned with the college name and team logo of your choice.
Just like the rest of the line, these headbands are virtually indestructible, allowing for bending and movement beyond what normal wear and tear would subject them to. Because the technology doesn’t run though the headband, the Tracks Collegiate Series also allows you to switch them out in case your loyalties quickly change. You can purchase the bands separately to accommodate a ‘split’ household that worships more than one team without having to purchase an entire new unit. We all know that just won’t do, so spring for one that you don’t have to share! They’re also available on Amazon with free Prime shipping and RadioShack as well!
With the season just underway, we have some exciting news to offer readers of SahmReviews.com. In conjunction with SOL REPUBLIC, we are giving away a set of Tracks Collegiate Series headphones to one lucky reader. The winner will get to choose the team of their choice (assuming it is in-stock) and receive it with plenty of time left in the season. Enter using the form below. This contest is valid for both residents of the U.S. and Canada! But let’s be fair, if you’ve won something from SOL REPUBLIC in the last six months, give someone else a shot (recent winners are not eligible).
