Sol Republic Master Tracks ( Gunmetal)


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 Review


In an extremely competitive headphone market, Sol Republic, seems to have outlined a winning blueprint. Crafting sleek, minimalist earpieces around the framework of its virtually indestructible polymer headband, the company has achieved some real...

Clear, well balanced sound signature ; Powerful, defined low end ; Huge dimensional soundscape ; Rugged yet elegant design

Slight lack of detail in timbre of instruments ; Bass occasionally a bit heavy

Those in search of headphones as tough as a pair of overalls but as refined as a tuxedo need look no further than the Sol Republic Master 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

Sol Republic Master Tracks XC headphones Studio Tuned by Calvin Harris review


When Sol Republic announced that it had got Calvin Harris to studio tune its XC headphones, we felt a wave of apathy. Was such a branding exercise really necessary?

Solid build quality, sound amazing, two cables included, comfortable to wear, subtle branding, modular build

Expensive, not ideal for classical or some musical genres, a little bright at times

Although the asking price for these Sol Republic headphones isn't a snip for most people, we think the build quality will see them last a very long time. Sol Republic says the headband is "virtually unbreakable". We didn't put that to the test with...
