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. If you love the modular, near indestructible Tracks style, and you don’t mind paying a premium for the freedom of cutting the chord, the Sol Republic Tracks Air are definitely worth a look.
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
Sol Republic Tracks Air review: A Beats-like wireless headphone for less
4 May 2013
Summary: At $200, the Sol Republic Tracks Air aren't cheap, but they're better priced than some of the premium Bluetooth headphone competition -- and sound relatively good, too, with a strong feature set.
Pros: The Sol Republic Tracks Air Wireless are stereo Bluetooth headphones that sports a durable design with an interchangeable headband, detachable cordage (for wired listening), and an integrated microphone. They deliver plenty of bass with a decent amount of clarity, and offer above-average battery life (15 hours) and long wireless range.
Cons: May not fit everyone equally well; sound isn't incredibly refined.
Summary: If you're looking for Monster Beats-style sound at a more affordable price, the Sol Republic Tracks should be on your short list.
Pros: The Sol Republic Tracks headphones are light, fairly comfortable, and sport a durable design with a convenient interchangeable headband, detachable cordage, and an integrated microphone and remote control. They sound good, delivering deep bass, and are affordable at $99.
Cons: The sound isn't terribly detailed, and the on-ear-design can rub certain ears the wrong way.
Excerpt: Sol Republic has stirred up quite a lot of press when the brand announced itself for the first time earlier this year. One of the founders of Sol Republic just so happens to be the son of Monster Cable's founder so we naturally have high expectations out of this new born audio brand which if we think is true, should surpass the ever growingly popular Beats By Dr. Dre line of stylish yet pricy headphones with affordably better sounding offerings.

Summary: The aim of the Tracks Air headphones is to offer a better overall listening experience through wireless connectivity, and to allow users the freedom to customise their look via different coloured headbands. As for sound quality, they are decent, but they put an emphasis on mid-range sounds and could use a little more ability at the low and high frequency ranges.
Pros: Cordless, Customisable due to removable band, Soft speaker pads
Cons: Struggle a bit at loud volume, Overall emphasis on mid-range
