I also looked at AKG but wasnt completely happy with their On Ear models.
Then my friend suggested the SOL Republic Tracks, I started to do some research and loved what I found. Everyone was saying what good headphones they were for the price. I liked how durable they were and how it was a new product almost no one knew about, unlike Beats by Dre. These were my first $20+ headphones and after reading many many reviews I decided to buy them.
I have had mine for almost a week now and have been listening to them at every possible chance. I LOVE how they sound and are quite comfortable. It has taken a little while to get used to how On Ear headphones feel. The band is literally indestructible like they say and the drivers are light but feel sturdy.
I wish they came with a carry case but its not a big deal.
I've listened to Rap, R&B, Rock, Classical, Movie sound tracks, and many other genres, they all sound really good. The bass is powerful and punchy but it doesn't muffle the highs or mids which sound clear and crisp to me. They do a good job of canceling ambient noise and seem to seal quite well on my ears. I have found nothing I dont like about these. If you are considering these or Beats, Buy these! They are on par if not better then beats and less then half the price.
Over all I am very happy with this purchase. Thank you SOL Republic!
Original Review: I love the headphones. The sound is great, especially for the price point. A friend of mine paid double for the same model in the store. I paid $50. I like the flexibility to change the color band. Since the ear pieces slide on and off it's pretty adjustable for different sizes of heads.
I wear these for about 7 hours a day. Once in a while my ears are warm from something bring on them when the air isn't moving in my office, or I need to just take them off for a moment, but I don't think I could ask for a more comfortable pair of headphones. They sit pretty close on your ear, which helps to isolate sound.
The only down side is that they aren't 100% compatible with android. I usually listen to these on my PC, but I've used them with my kindle fire and android too. The sound adjustments on the headphones doesn't work with my phone, buy everything else works fine.
Yes, there certainly is.
I've had these headphones for about a week, and my thoughts so far, to sum them up, are:
-- The Good! :)
+ Epic bass response
+ Great overall sound
+ Stylish appearance
+ Interchangeable parts
+ Impressive sound isolation
-- The Bad :(
- Noticeable noise from cable and headband
- Uncomfortable for long listening sessions
-- The Quirky :/
~ Occasional delay when resuming music
Now, for the details:
-- The Good! :)
These headphones were recommended to me by a friend who loves dubstep music. His friend (who also listens to dubstep) owns a pair, which led him to choose these as his dream headphones for his DJ setup. Interestingly, he has used a pair of Beats headphones on which one speaker blew out entirely, and which didn't have very impressive sound. I can't speak from much experience with other headphones of its kind, but I did have a chance to compare them at Kohl's. Yes, it sounds weird, but Kohl's is a surprisingly good place to try them out. I've been to two Kohl's and two corresponding Best Buy's. Best Buy had these on display, but only Kohl's had it set up so you could plug your own iPod in and listen to your favorite jams on these headphones. Kohl's also had some $150 Monster headphones and $200-250 Beats on display, but neither of the Beats displays worked and at least one of the Monsters had a damaged cable. So, at Kohl's I was able to try music such as Lindsey Stirling, The Piano Guys, Imagine Dragons, and some Beethoven and Sousa on these impressive headphones. From those test runs and my friend's recommendation, I chose these and I've never looked back.
The bass on these headphones is definitely the selling point for me. When I listen to it, I feel like I followed Batman's advice and "cranked up those subwoofers" on some epic surround sound system I don't have. Sure, it's not as dominating as the bass in a dubstep fan's car, but I find is pleasantly resonant. From Lindsey Stirling to Rock to the Frozen soundtrack and even classical music, the bass level delivers an immersive experience that I have yet to find anywhere else. I doubt that any headphones that are this economical can claim such great bass response. And, of course, the rest of the spectrum sounds great, too. Though I'm no audiophile, I would not change anything about the sound of these headphones.
Closely related to the sound is the "SonicSoft" ear cushions, that, without any active noise cancellation that I'm aware of, effectively isolate the sound so that if you're listening to your tunes on these, a tap on the shoulder or a really loud yell are the only ways people will be able to get your attention. Likewise, very little of your music will escape through the cushions. I have never been able to hear more than a whisper of another's music as they listen to these, even if I put my ear right up to the "Sound Engine." Unfortunately, this has a negative impact that I will explain later in the review.
The other good things are but a trifle compared to the others, but it's worth mentioning that these headphones have a very distinct, head-turning design, and a design that easily allows for "Remixing," SOL's term for switching out the headband or cable for a different color. This was a life-saver for me the day after I got these headphones when my knee caught the cable right as I was getting up from kneeling. With the typical headphone design, I could have easily broken them completely, but with the interchangeable design, the cable simply unplugged from the sound engines and after reconnecting them, I was back in business.
-- The Bad :(
Now, there are some design flaws with this product, most notably from the design. The sound engines have no way of pivoting, as most headphones do, to fit more comfortably on the ears. This is particularly bothersome for longer listening sessions, as they put unnecessary strain on the listener's ears. Fortunately for you, my ears stick out quite a bit more than most people's, so they will probably be less uncomfortable for most other people. But regardless of your ear's elf factor, the sound isolation has its own downside: taps or rubs on the headband and cable have a noticeable presence while listening. Although I have not tried it myself, I have it on good authority that running or other similar physical activity leads to a bothersome amount of cable noise. Runners, you may want to look elsewhere. For those of you who don't move around very much while listening, this con will hardly affect you.
-- The Quirky :/
These headphones are equipped with a 3-button "remote" for controlling an MP3 player. When using this with my iPod touch (4th generation), functions respond about as fast as they do with my Apple headphones: no noticeable delay when adjusting volume, 1-2 second delay when pausing or resuming music. I actually think these SOL Republics might be a little quicker on playing and pausing. Usually. Unfortunately, on several occasions, there has been a roughly 5-second delay when resuming playback. One time when it waited closer to 10 seconds, I woke my iPod up and it quickly resumed playing.
In closing, these headphones are a great choice for the dubstep fan, or for anybody who loves deep, resonant bass when they listen to music. However, before you buy these, I would recommend reading some online reviews, such as Gizmodo, who compares these Tracks to the Tracks HD and Tracks Ultra. They are, unfortunately, more expensive, but they might suit your listening style better. Also, I would see if your local Kohl's has a pair on display that you could try. Headphones are one of those things that you'd really like to try out yourself before you buy. I would by no means consider Kohl's as a better place to buy them than Amazon, but it sure is a good place to try them out with your own music.
The headphone market certainly is a vast, confusing place, but unless you expect to wear your headphones all day or are a hardcore audiophile, you can't go wrong with these ones.
Two days ago I wore these headphones while walking for about 20-30 minutes with some wind. The cable sort of "thuds" whenever you take a step, but it's not too noticeable unless it's a quiet part in the music or you listen to your music on the quiet side. This effect is dramatically increased when you run, so if you want running headphones, I would definitely look elsewhere. Also, quite a bit of wind noise came through, even though the wind was quite mild. If you expect to use your headphones outdoors a lot, you might want to invest in some higher-end headphones that focus a little more on cutting out noise, depending on how much outside noise bothers you.
