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
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.
Review: Sol Republic Tracks Air wireless headphones
26 August 2014
Summary: Our first play with a pair from the Sol Republic, the Tracks Air are great little headphones with a curious little niched feature: changing over the headbands.
Pros: Relatively balanced, though particularly bright sound, Wired or wireless, Replaceable headbands, Mic does a good job when dealing with phone calls, Strong battery catering to roughly 12 to 14 hours
Cons: Cable relies on two wires -- one from each ear -- and is a little clunky, Cable relies on 2.5mm jacks, Cable's microphone is a touch too low and should be closer to the neck, Changing the pad position on the band is too tight and makes a squealing noise close to fingers on a chalk board, Fit is strange
Wireless headphones that can be used easily while on the go or lounging around the house

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
Excerpt: Il s'est fait remarquer aux oreilles de Michael Phelps, le champion de natation américain, lors des JO 2012 à Londres. Mais le Tracks HD a également beaucoup d'autres qualités et notamment celles d'être démontables, personnalisables et performants.
Pros: La configuration et le look personnalisable, Simplicité et intelligence du concept, Un son généreux, Des médiums bien timbrés
