March 20, 2013 – SOL REPUBLIC and DJ, producer Steve Aoki team up to create a headphone that’s as crazy and fun as Aoki himself.

A dizzying combination of black and white stripes with an aqua-blue Aoki silhouette, these new SOL REPUBLIC headphones mirror one of the craziest and most energetic DJs in the world. These headphones are built to withstand flying Corks, cakes and a 30-foot stage dive.
Kevin Lee, SOL REPUBLIC co-founder and CEO, was excited to share that, “Steve as a producer makes the kind of music that blows your mind, as a performer he is out of his mind, and his fans love him for it. He was our first Savior of Sound and we’re thrilled to make a headphone that looks as crazy as Steve truly is.”
Steve Aoki notes, “SOL REPUBLIC Aokified the signature Tracks HD headphones that I wear on stage at every show. I’ve been a fan of SOL REPUBLIC since even before they launched and I’m pretty excited about the energy and love they put into this product because it’s exactly what I’d want a headphone that I wear during my shows to look and sound like.”
