Background: I wear glasses, and I HATE ear-buds now, after putting them in my ear holes for years. Ear-buds are cumbersome and hurt my ears after only a few hours, and then there are the cords that get tangled... which is why I have been looking for a high-quality set of wireless headphones/mics to link with my Samsung Galaxy S4 mini (GT-i9192 model with two SIMs)Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini GT-I9192 GSM Unlocked Dual Sim - White.
I have tried other 'expensive' sets from Bose and others, but the feel of the SOL Republic Tracks Air is superior to all of them. Much more 'solid'. The round ear pieces slide onto the headband and this allows you to perfectly adjust them to the most comfortable position.
The noise cancelling is great courtesy of Motorola (Motorola has teamed up with San Francisco's SOL Republic and co-brands these headphones). The sound quality and dynamic range is excellent. The cushion around each speaker rests comfortably on my ears - so I forget I'm wearing them! (For those of you who wear glasses, raise the ear rests over the cushions and you'll feel better). When I receive a call, the music stops and the call is announced. How sweet :) and when the call ends, the music resumes. All without wires! This would have been magic back in my youth.
The SOL Republic / Motorola Tracks Air also includes a USB charging cable, wires so you can plug this into your device (which then disables the Bluetooth to save power), and a nice carry 'pouch'. Why would you ever want the wires? Well, in order for the FM radio to function (on my smart phone) the wire doubles as a FM antenna. Otherwise, there should be no need for the wires.
The controls on the right ear-piece are simple and easy to toggle. I was worried that they wouldn't function with my device, but, alas, I can control my music, skip a track, replay, all with ease. And on a single charge they last a long, long time.
You can pair two devices, like a phone and a laptop computer, but must turn on the 'multi-point' function.
I only wish I could (legally) wear these in my car while driving! So, 5 stars for comfort, sound quality, and design/construction.
Whereas the MDR-7506 are too accurate and analytical, the Sol Republic Tracks Air, are too boomy with a lack of sub bass. There's such a large bump around 80-100Hz that you don't hear much roll off into the lower sub frequencies. It also masks quite a bit of high mid frequencies, especially vocals. Sounds a bit muffled. And the treble sounds vague with decent levels around 8KHz but drops quickly beyond that. There's very little detail in really low bass, high vocals, and very high treble. The emphasis in bass masks a lot of detail. Personally, I would've asked for the bump around kick drum range. But it's in the mic check tap tap tap area. It's not tight enough or low enough to be considered energetic nor lusciously warm.
But they're not terrible. I didn't buy them expecting to get refined and luxurious sound dripping in detail and nuances. I did expect to get something similar to a pair of Beats. I can't compare them to Beats because I've never had a listen. But from what I've read, Beats are not exactly refined. The Tracks Air are not either. But they're not handicapped. iPhones have an EQ. I click the Bass Reducer on and it's infinitely more enjoyable. The treble still falls off steeply so it gives you an impression of a bump in the highs that it can play. But the lowered bass brings out the vocals a bit more and my head doesn't feel like it's going to explode. Two dislikes, they don't get rock concert loud on BT, and the lowest volume setting is still a little too loud.
The main reason why any of us would buy a pair of BT headphones is for the convenience that comes with cutting the cord. But that came at a price. Often times, they never sounded like corded headphones. These, can be plugged in. And they sound pretty much the same, except you can crank them up a bit louder. The main reason they sound the same, from what I've read, was that BT, generally compressed your music files. But these, will play AAC and aptX codec. That means that if your device supports them, the Tracks Air will play them. So, since most of my music is bought on iTunes and they're stored as AAC files in my iPhone, they will be played with no further compression. My Big Jambox, after a software update, sounded much better. So after reading about this, I checked it out and sure enough, the software update included the AAC and aptX codec. Technology is so great.
Sorry I didn't go into detail about the other aspects of the headphone but I'm sure that you've read all about them in other reviews ad nauseam. Thx for reading. Hopefully you won't disregard them without auditioning a pair. Because in the context of wireless headphones, they're great. Just turn the Bass Reducer on. They're built well, battery lasts forever, and are super comfy for my large ears and sized 7-1/2 head. If I went on vacation, a train or a plane ride, I would grab these over a pair of corded cans everytime.
1. After about 2 hours they HURT. My head hurts right under the strap and my ears hurt.
2. My $13 Koss UR20 headphones sound better. The Tracks lack mids and highs and emphasize bass too much.
3. I cannot find replacement cans or headbands.
Considering these flaws I really can't recommend them to anyone ESPECIALLY for the price.
