SOL REPUBLIC has fast become one of my favorite brands when it comes to listening to music. Right now in my household of four, three of us have SOL REPUBLIC devices. My oldest son has the DECK, which is a wireless speaker that can be paired to 5 devices at a time and has a HEIST capability. It’s pretty awesome – a social amplifier.
My husband uses Master Tracks Over Ear Headphones with impressive immersive sound capabilities. He likes them for working out at the gym, because he can really concentrate on his own workout and cut out distractions from those around him.
Finally, I recently received a pair of TRACKS AIR for review – the first wireless headphones from SOL REPUBLIC. Can I just say OMGoodness and my husband is SO JEALOUS of me. Haha! I actually am sharing these with my son, because he truly loves music. But I take them whenever I need to workout or run and I am just AMAZED by the quality. They beat every other pair of headphones I have even tried. Plus, I am just amazed at the fit, they stay on when I run! Here are the features that I love.
WIRELESS: These are wireless headphones. It took seconds to connect it to my iPhone. I can control the headphones both from my iPhone or from the Sound Engines (Ear Pieces). The Sound Engines have a power button, volume control, microphone and a multifunction button.
AMAZING SOUND: When I put them on, they cut out all other sounds. If you are using them in public, you do have to be extra aware of surroundings because of this. A zombie apocalypse could be going on and I wouldn’t know with these babies on. As the music plays, each sound engine delivers its own individual sound for an immersive experience, like you are right at a concert. It’s simply mind-blowing.
PHONE CALLS: Since I paired this with my iPhone, it’s great that it takes phone calls! It has a built-in mic, so you can just have a crystal clear conversation without taking off the headphones.
CUSTOMIZABLE: Just like the Master Tracks Over Ear Headphones, these are customizable. They come in four colors, but you can purchase a different headband – the power is in the engines, not the headband.
COMFORTABLE: The Sound Engines are powerful, but comfortable. They adjust and stay in place, so my husband, son and myself are all comfortable wearing the TRACKS AIR. Even when running at a good pace, they stay on and don’t slide off.
WIRED: If for some reason you need to be wires, they do come with a single button cable with mic.
To charge the TRACKS AIR, you use the included USB cord. A carrying case is also included. You can also do nifty stuff if you are all techy like my husband, such as connecting multiple devices to the TRACKS AIR. I am simple. Right now it’s connected to my iPhone and that’s all that I need. These are great for listening to music. They are also superb for watching movies on a tablet.
Now, I tested them for quality and found that they were superb. But truly, these would be excellent for college-bound students, hence my #BTS (back-to-school) hashtag. Students can use them for long trips and flights back home. Plus they will help cut distractions when studying. A little music in the background in these sound-isolating headphones and they will be making those passing grades with ease!
TRACKS AIR are available from Best Buy for between $195 – $199, depending on any sales or deals they may be having. They are currently available in four colors – red (Vivid), blue (electro), black (Gunmetal) and white. You can learn more about them at SolRepublic.com.
