FORT WORTH, Texas, July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RadioShack and SOL REPUBLIC are giving music fans a simple solution if their in-ear headphone ear tips are lost or damaged. Neighborhood RadioShack stores now have replacement ear tips for every SOL REPUBLIC in-ear headphone, launching SOL REPUBLIC's Free Ear Tips for Life program in retail stores.
Consumers can walk into one of the more than 2,000 participating RadioShack stores and simply let an associate know they need replacement ear tips for any pair of SOL REPUBLIC in-ear headphones, and they'll walk out with a new pair of ear tips – free of charge.
The free ear tips are available in four sizes to fit all SOL REPUBLIC in-ear headphones. There is no need to show proof of purchase and the SOL REPUBLIC headphones do not need to have been purchased from RadioShack.
"We are excited to expand our partnership with SOL REPUBLIC to offer their Free Ear Tips for Life guarantee to customers," said Paul Rutenis, chief merchandising officer at RadioShack. "RadioShack is a leader in audio technology and we know on-the-go customers are looking for a convenient solution to missing or damaged in-ear tips. SOL REPUBLIC is a destination brand for RadioShack and we are happy to provide this service to people at no cost to them."
SOL REPUBLIC introduced its breakthrough Free Ear Tips for Life program in 2011 online. Consumers can still register their headphones on the SOL REPUBLIC website and request free ear tips anytime via email at [email protected].
"Ear tips are easy to lose, but often hard to replace. That leaves music fans without their music, and that's never been okay with us," said Kevin Lee, co-founder and CEO at SOL REPUBLIC. "Taking our Free Ear Tips for Life program into RadioShack stores gives consumers another convenient option to keep the music going when their ear tips go missing."
For additional protection, RadioShack shoppers can purchase many of SOL REPUBLIC's popular on-ear or in-ear headphones and add RadioShack's best-in-class "IT Happens" protection plan, which covers accidental damage to the headphones.
