Sol Republic Master Tracks review: A slick, sturdy headphone with strong bass

 

Sol Republic, the fledgling headphone company that launched in 2012, has done a great job marketing its products. In a relatively short time frame, it's managed to sell thousands of its distinct looking on-ear Tracks headphones , many of them to...

The over-the-ear Sol Republic Master Tracks have a clean, modern design, and offer a relatively comfortable fit with good sound that's punctuated by strong bass response. Also, the headband can be swapped out; the cords are detachable; and there's an...

The headphones don't fold up or fold flat. Also, they don't sound as detailed at lower volumes.

The Sol Republic Master Tracks have a distinct, eye-catching design and good performance, offering better, more refined sound than the original Tracks.

SOL Republic Master Tracks

 

The SOL Republic Master Tracks headphones feature a comfortable design and plenty of low-end, but highs and high-mids could be more present.

Comfortable fit. Delivers powerful audio with distortion-free deep bass. Earcups and cables are replaceable. Inline microphone and remote control for mobile devices

Highly sculpted frequency response with boosted bass, lacks a bit in high-mids and highs. Ear pads tend to get hot

When Michael Phelps wore SOL Republic headphones practically everywhere but in the pool at the 2012 Olympics, the young audio brand gained some national notoriety. SOL Republic's early models, like the Tracks, focused on big bass at a reasonable...

SOL Republic Masters the Art of Over-Ear Headphones on a Budget with Master Tracks

 

While we have tested our fair share of over-ear headphones, the Master Tracks doesn't try to be anything more than a good pair of headphones that is accessible to all kinds of audiences. They may not be the audiophiles headphone of choice, but for...

Lightweight, bendable, twistable, and can take abuse. Comfy ear cups and swappable headbands. Good sound reproduction that won’t cost you a fortune. Priced right. Highs and vocals are super crisp

Takes a few hours to burn in. Out of the box they sound a bit empty and hallow. Sound leaked out and ambient noise leaked in, in noisy areas

Apart from Sol Republic's products, you're unlikely to find headphones offered as "do it yourself" kits with light assembly required. That's part of the appeal of Master Tracks ($200): unlike rival options, this pair of headphones arrives broken down...

SOL Republic Master Tracks review

 

Light, comfortable, with well-balanced sound. And they don't make you look like a divvy. What more do you want?

Built to last ; Lots of customisation options ; Really impressive sound

Hit-and-miss remote functions for non-Apple stuff

As chic and subtle or as loud and garish as you want, the Master Tracks are a big, exciting and well-balanced listen.

Headphones from Sol Republic and Sony : Sol Republic Master Tracks Studio & Sony ZX600

 

First from Sony something of a lightweight offering so maybe ideal to take with you out and about the a set of headphones designed to go in an audio outlet for studio quality units but unscrew it and you have a 3.5mm jack.

These are described as Monitor Headphones and are on-ear design. The lead is of the flat type favoured by a lot of recent earbud offerings as it is less likely to knot up. The lead like the headphones are red, 30cm to the point where the leads from...
