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
"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
