Durable, flexible and virtually indestructible the Sol Republic - Tracks HD are an affordable alternative that surpasses established brands such as Dre Beats, Skullcandy and Bose headphones in terms of structural build – and they don’t sound too shabby either.
Featuring their patented FlexTech technology, you can manipulate the plastic strip headband in a multitude of directions without worrying about incurring any damage. Ear-cups are also detachable and completely interchangeable with swappable cables and headbands alike.
Brilliant for trips to the gym and general sporting activity (see advocate, Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps), they're lightweight, sleek design is not just practical, but also highly fashionable. However, the lack of ear-cup pivot means a truly comfortable fit is difficult to achieve. The headband allows little space for adjustment, therefore making it difficult to rotate and position the ear cups to your personal preference.
In terms of sound, The Tracks HD incorporates a balanced range of frequencies, delivering lows, mids and highs with crisp clarity, albeit, sounding slightly swampy within the regions of the lower end bass. Delicate sounds resonate with precision around your inner earlobes; accentuating dynamics, subtle percussion is given an amplified weight that’s not too overbearing. Sonically impressive through a wide spectrum of genres, an all-around balanced sound lends to comfortable listening from light-hearted folk to colossal dubstep.
Already popular in the USA, these’ low end market’ priced headphones deliver high-definition sound and a fashion-forward style that competes with many of their rivals
