Flips Audio - #SoloToSocial Review and Giveaway

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
I like to listen to music quite often. Sometimes I want to jam out by myself and sometimes I want the whole world to hear. That's where Flips Audio headphones come in. I can either put on the headphones and listen to my music solo, or I can flip out the earcups and bring the beat to a whole new level, allowing my friends into my world of music.

Available for purchase online or at Brookstone, Flips Audio lets you listen to your favorite hits or share them with your friends. They're the first solo to social headset.


Flips Audio comes in two colors, black and white. I received the black pair and was impressed with the sleek, modern design of satin black finish with electric lime green trim. A zippered carrying case of the same color was included. Also enclosed were instructions, which were easy to read and understand.

Flips Audio is compatible with any standard audio jack, so you can plug them into tablets, iPods, and phones. I tend to listen to Flips Audio headphones while they're plugged into my iPad. Custom vented earcups with soft cushion don't cause undue hurt or pressure on the ears. The sound quality is good and you can hear music clearly, whether you're listening in solo mode or social mode. When the headphones are in solo mode, only you can hear the music. When they're in social mode, the crowd around you can hear the beats.

A rechargeable ion battery provides several hours of playtime. If the battery is drained, you can only listen to music in solo mode. The battery lasts approximately three hours before needing to be recharged. By plugging the headphones into the USB charger they will go back to full power, with a red light indicator showing you that they're ready for full use.

Flips Audio headphones do have to be folded a certain way in order for them to correctly fit in their protective case. It took me a couple of tries to get it figured out. Flips Audio headphones are effortless to flip from solo to social mode, and they allow me to rock out how I want.

Win It!

One person will win Flips Audio headphones. (ARV $120)
