Sol Republic Master Tracks review: A slick, sturdy headphone with strong bass
22 April 2014
Summary: The Sol Republic Master Tracks have a distinct, eye-catching design and good performance, offering better, more refined sound than the original Tracks.
Pros: The over-the-ear Sol Republic Master Tracks have a clean, modern design, and offer a relatively comfortable fit with good sound that's punctuated by strong bass response. Also, the headband can be swapped out; the cords are detachable; and there's an Apple friendly inline remote/microphone.
Cons: The headphones don't fold up or fold flat. Also, they don't sound as detailed at lower volumes.
Conclusion: The SOL Republic Tracks Air are Bluetooth headphones that will appeal to lovers of powerful deep bass and drive away those seeking a balanced sound.
Pros: Powerful audio performance with no distortion on deep bass at high volumes. NFC and Bluetooth enabled. Comfortable design. Detachable cable with inline microphone and remote for mobile devices. Solid battery life.
Cons: Boosted bass is a bit over-the-top, and the highs are pretty sculpted, too, often resulting in an unbalanced mix.
Conclusion: Sol Republic’s Tracks Air lacked the kind of finesse we look for in a $200 pair of headphones. But for the casual listener, they offer plenty of clarity up top, a full midrange, and that warm, punchy lower register that made the original Tracks such a hit.
Pros: Good stereo spread, Clear, powerful sound, Cool, comfy design, Impressive wireless range
Cons: Lack of detail up top, Fielding long phone calls not ideal
Summary: Pink once sang about getting the party started, but SOL REPUBLIC went and did it with the Tracks earphones, an aesthetically pleasing headset with a refreshing design that's simple and functional.
Pros: Uniquely Attractive:, Lightweight and Comfortable:, In-Line Controls:, Sturdy Construction:, There's a Party in Your Noggin:
Summary: So is it worth investing in the extra $50 bucks for a tad better quality? Well if you already own the Tracks HD, it really isn’t worth upgrading. But if you haven’t owned a pair of SOL Republic headphones yet, than you might as well splurge and get the Tracks Ultra and get the full experience.
Pros: Solid design, crisper highs and a more impressive low end, still a very balanced and pretty affordable pair of headphones.
Cons: The neoprene carrying case is a bit awkward, the headphones aren’t overwhelmingly that different from the Tracks HD.
