Rockin' Back To School With Sol Republic Deck

Have you ever fallen in love with a product from the first time you used it? This is what happened when I had the opportunity to review the Sol Republic Deck. The Deck is a wireless speaker which has great range and incredible sound. I have used this every day once it arrived in my hot little hands. It goes in the car with me because the car system sounds terrible. I use it every morning for the getting up, showered, dressed, and out the door routine. I use it with my notebook computer because the speakers on it barely make noise. It is my workout buddy while I'm walking on the treadmill at home. We take it to the kitchen to make cooking into a giant family sing along and dance party. I listen to it while typing blog posts and singing about along about not knowing what to do with myself. Anyhow, it has many uses and I like versatility.


It's a hit with the teenagers too. I know this because it frequently misplaces itself, going from the corner of my desk upstairs. I keep being assured no one knows how that happens, but I'm confident it's not moving on it's own. Teenagers. Anyway, the Deck scores high points with them not only because of the amazing sound. Two things stand out with my teens; Heist Mode and outdoor mode. Heist Mode allows up to five mobile devices to control the Deck with the simple slide of a button. You can have multiple DJs this way. I swear Heist Mode kept us from having all out musical fits of "But, I don't like that song!" last weekend because all three of us had control. Mom likes it for that very reason. Outdoor mode gives you a sound boost that is awesome. The first time we tried the Deck was at the pool and the sound was clear even among splashing and chatter. Pretty cool if you ask me. 

The final verdict is Sol Republic's Deck is honestly one of my favorite things. I think it would be great for high school or college students going back to school who enjoy music while studying. It produces great sound without being obnoxiously loud, a fact that this mom who says "turn that that down" to the man child's big clunky system completely appreciates. I like everything about it, from the cool features I've already mentioned to how it gives you verbal battery status updates. So cool! The only thing I was not happily about was the inability to connect using the NFC on my phone, but it says it's possible and it could have easily been user error on my part. Connecting via Bluetooth worked just fine. My opinion is the Deck is a great product and would make a fabulous gift. 

You want one for yourself now, don't you? Of course you do! You are in luck too, because one lucky reader will win one of their very own!

I love the vibrant colors. This seems like the kind of gadget that I might forget about if it's turned off, but the color will remind you it's there.
