Sorry for the long review, but I wanted to get my opinion out there :) I really hope this helps out someone else who is in the market for some headphones. They are worth every penny. And if you're trying to choose between different brands - go with these. You will not be disappointed at all. These are so so so amazing and I am soooo unbelievably happy that I took a chance and decided to buy these. Pure perfection.
I was specifically looking for something bass heavy with a mellow but detailed high end (I hate screechy harsh treble). I own a pair of original Monster Turbine in ear headphones that do quite well with the right eartips, albeit just a bit shy in the bass department. I also have a pair of original Denon AH-D5000 running through a Headroom amp for home use when I want more detail. I wanted something similar to the sound of the Turbines in an over the ear configuration, with just a slight bit more bass. I've tried the V-Moda M100 as well as the LP2, some Sony XB models, a bunch of Sennheisers, a bunch of Grados, several Beats and Monsters, AKGs, etc... None of them had the sound I liked.
My criteria are as follows:
1) Bass heavy (not obnoxious).
2) Over the ear, or comfortable enough for a few hours of use.
3) Mellow but detailed high end.
4) Can be driven off an iPhone, Android, portable player, etc..., without the need for an amp.
5) Compact and durable for travel (airplanes, cafes, bus, etc...).
6) Won't break the bank (relatively speaking).
My preferences in music are pretty broad. Primarily EDM, with a bit of classical, classic rock, modern pop-rock, folk, singer/songwriter, spanish guitar, instrumentals, etc... Again, emphasis on bass forward heavy kick for EDM style tracks.
The Sony XB series are just bass monsters that have no detail in the cheap models, and screechy blown out treble at the top models. Horrible. Most other high end brands are more neutral and require an amp to sound decent.Read more ›
First and foremost, if you consider yourself an "audiophile," you won't be cross-shopping these. The sound is most definitely tuned for the consumer. And if you're among the rest of us that just wants your music to kick, these are about as good as they get. The low end is a tiny bit stronger than the Tracks HD. Compared to my Beats Solos, this blows them away. I almost bought the Beats Studio and the Beats Mixr, but after having my Tracks for a while, there was no way I could go back to that brand. The Beats have more thunderous bass reproduction but the sound tends to get muddy very easily. Sol Republic's tuning doesn't over-emphasize bass to keep the sound cleaner. Don't get me wrong, these are definitely tuned to bias toward the low end, but not so much that it drowns out everything else.
I've had Shures and Grados so I'm not going to kid you in saying that the highs are accurate and brilliant. They aren't, but if you're considering these headphones, you're probably looking for reasonably clear mids and highs. Which is what these headphones provide.
My Tracks HD headphones are only comfortable enough to wear for about an hour at a time. Maybe two at the most. I've had these Master Tracks on for an entire work day without feeling the slightest of pressure discomfort. That's not to say it can't be improved, however. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because the ear cushions only swivel in one direction.
Take note that if you don't use an Apple iDevice, the buttons may not perform the function that you expect. I use these headphones with my iPod so the volume, play/pause and track skip functions work as expected. But they're practically useless with my phones (Galaxy S4, Nexus 5 & Nexus 4).

These headphones sound great! The only downside is that one side stopped working after 2 months of very little use (I'm a DJ and only use them on the weekends for gigs). Read morePublished 20 days ago by Mitch
