Swimming pools aren’t the only things renowned athlete Michael Phelps springboards into.

The decorated Olympian has been diving into motivational music throughout his 16-year career so it’s only fitting that Sol Republic introduce their new Tracks Anthem HD headphones inspired by Phelps.

“I wear headphones to shut everything out and help me focus every time I step up on the block,” says the 27-year-old gold medalist. “It’s a key motivator for me and it drives me to push harder, swim faster and to win. It’s awesome to have headphones that are inspired by my love for music and the role it has played in my career and my life.”

With a sleek red, blue and white design along with interchangeable pieces to fully utilize the Tracks Remix system, the audible head gear also champions a cause as a portion of all proceeds will benefit the Michael Phelps Foundation, dedicated to promoting healthy and active lifestyles. “I think it’s only fitting that they are named Anthem because I’m always proud to represent the red, white, and blue, and music is the soundtrack of my life,” he adds.

The headphones are currently available at top consumer electronics retailers worldwide and at shop.solrepublic.com for $149.99. So make like Phelps and help your ears hear victory.
