PROS

  • Tracks Air pairs easily with one or more Bluetooth devices, but it can also be used as a set of wired headphones.
  • Sol Republic includes a built-in microphone, which enables you to take phone calls.
  • When you power on the headphones, an embedded voice tells you how many hours of battery life you have left. The battery life amounts to an impressive 15 hours overall.

CONS

  • If your head is on the large side, these cans might fit too tightly. Then again, if your head is small, you might not get a good fit either.
  • If prominent bass is not your thing, you might want to look elsewhere.
  • When you swap out a headband, you must align the earpieces properly with the new band.
Co-developed with Motorola, Sol Republic's Tracks Air is better priced than other premium wireless headphones while offering stylish good looks, a strong feature set, and smooth sound with solid bass. As with the startup's wired Tracks cans, it's a quick and simple matter to remove the earpieces and swap in a headband of a different color. The wireless Air product, though, introduces an ingenious new headband design. The headband contains strips of metal for transmitting sound between the two earpieces, or "sound engines."

Like the wired Tracks, you can disassemble these headphones and swap in a new headband if you like. The big difference here is that the headband on this model has some metal embedded into it that acts as a conduit and connects the two earpieces, which Sol Republic calls "sound engines."

A unique pair of headphones, Sol Republic’s Tracks Air takes the look of a regular pair of headphones, but brings with them a different design, making the earphones into separate pieces that can be removed from the band, with that headband replaceable if it breaks or you prefer a different colour.

SOL Republic is slowly carving out its identity as a direct competitor to the Beats by Dr. Dre lineup, the reigning champion of big bass, celebrity-endorsed, and athlete-approved headphones. Booming bass and glossy finishes are staples of both brands, and the new Bluetooth audio-streaming Tracks Air is no exception.

There wasn’t a whole lot of detail when we dug into the deeper levels of the music, so we feel like you definitely pay a premium for the cordless aspect here. That said, if you’re looking for wireless sound that is extremely accessible for a wide range of music, the Tracks Air deliver.

Someone designed the hell out of the packaging- in a good way. Everything is neatly tucked away, makes sense and looks like a premium product – as you’d want for a pair of headphones that cost $199. They’re by no means the most expensive, but $200 for headphones is definitely a purchase worth considering.

The right side can has most of the power. You find the power button (which lights up to indicate pairing mode, battery life), which is a bit flushed, as you go along the can, you find the curved volume rocker, and then near the bottom you find the play/pause, answer/hang-up button. At the bottom of the right can, you have the micro USB charging port and next to it you have the 3.5 mm input jack (the left can has the 3.5 mm jack also). You also have the microphone at the bottom, which allows you to take calls.
