SOL REPUBLIC Tracks Air Wireless Bluetooth Headphones Review
With advancements in audio technology, today's consumer has choices in headphones that offer sound quality only heard in professional level equipment in years past. One of the latest innovations in headphones is Bluetooth wireless technology. While convenient, wireless headphones have meant a sacrifice in audio quality compared to high-end wired headphones.
The new SOL REPUBLIC Tracks Air Wireless On-Ear Headphones with A2 Sound Engine are more than headphones, however, offering sound quality rivaling the best wired headphones without a freedom-limiting cord. With aptX technology and up to a 150 foot range, music can be enjoyed while dancing, running around, or working out while the music source (cell phone, iPod, tablet, or laptop) remains in a safe place without being tugged on by a cord. Volume can be adjusted by a convenient headphone-mounted volume control.
Where other wireless headphones have been plagued by limited battery life, these ones provide up to 15 hours of battery life — plenty of time to rock out all day or watch several movies without recharging. In the unlikely event that this proves to be inadequate, a backup cable is provided to allow wired listening with the same high quality sound. Another feature not available on competitors' products is the ability to simultaneously connect to two devices. This allows for watching a movie on a tablet or laptop then instantly answering a call on the already-connected smartphone with a simple button push on the headphones. Once in a call, the built-in dual microphone CrystalTalk system turns the headphones into a wireless headset with crystal-clear sound free from distortion.
Supporting both iOS and android devices, Bluetooth pairing is quick and easy thanks to the years of Bluetooth wireless expertise provided by Motorola. In the case of supported Android devices, pairing can be accomplished through NFC (near field communication) by simply tapping the phone to the headphones and answering “yes” onscreen when asked.
Available in electro blue, gunmetal, vivid red, and white, the Tracks AIR headphones offer a 1-year limited warranty. For those who might still be undecided about going wireless, a 100-day money back satisfaction guarantee provides risk-free trial period.
Every pair comes with a slim-fit carrying case and features Sol Republic's SonicSoft ear pads. These ear pads ensure comfort during all 15 hours of battery life and keep the music in while keeping unwanted sound out. The interchangeable headband (one provided, more available for added customization) is virtually indestructible and adjusts to a comfortable fit on almost any head.
