Michael Phelps landed an endorsement deal with Sol Republic today, the headphones brand he used at the London 2012 Olympics, quite visibly until someone told him to cover their logo with tape. Read ESPN

“He absolutely loves this brand,” said his agent Peter Carlisle. “I mean, he was wearing them anyway.”

As part of the deal, Sol will begin selling Phelps-inspired headphones on its eBay store on Tuesday, in addition to auctioning off 21 of the headphones Phelps wore before his Olympic races. The proceeds of the auction will go to the Michael Phelps Foundation.
