Michael Phelps to Endorse Sol Republic Headphone Brand
By Community | September 5, 2012
Multiple Olympic gold medallist Michael Phelps has agreed an endorsement partnership with headphone brand Sol Republic.
“He absolutely loves this brand,” his agent Peter Carlisle told ESPN Playbook. “I mean, he was wearing them anyway.”
After accepting the endorsement, Phelps said: Music has always been a big part of my life — it helps me focus and inspires me for every race. I’m a big fan of SOL REPUBLIC headphones’ sound and I like the colors and how you can change them up. I’m excited to partner with SOL REPUBLIC to offer the headphones I wore before every race exclusively on eBay to benefit my Foundation, which helps me to support the next generation of swimmers.
Sol Republic launched its new eBay store this morning, commemorating the occasion with a new line of Phelps-inspired headphones. They will also be auctioning off 21 pairs of autographed Sol headphones, worn by Phelps before his raced in London. All of the proceeds from the online auction go to Phelps’ charity, the Michael Phelps Foundation.
