Having a full time job in web content and web video production puts me in a position to listen to quite a bit of sound through headphones. Maybe not as important as my days producing live sound at concerts, but headphone sound is still a large part of my day. The number of headphones I have shuffeled through is endless. Everything from in-ear monitors from Shure to a wide array of selections from the Skullcandy family have been of constant use in my work at CraveOnline. Then, along came Sol Republic. I had the opportunity to try out both of their lines and I was pleasantly surprised.
Lets start with the Sol Republic Tracks Headphones. They are you fairly standard "over-ear" headphones, but they pack more than a punch. I tested them with the heights of Dub-Step music listening to Skrillex, all the way to mellow, high-dynamic sound acoustic rock with the likes of Jack Johnson. Regardless of the music I had running through my iPhone, the Tracks Headphones gave me a live sound version for my music listening experience through nothing but headphones. Gotta' love it.
Quickly I will touch on the Amps Headphones line that Sol Republic has to offer. The Amps Headphones are in-ear headphones as opposed to the over-ear Tracks Headphones. I recommend the Amps for everyday phone usage. They are sleek and small and yet still carry the high-quality sound close to the level of the larger Tracks Headphones. While both sets have listen-and-talk capabilities for your phone, the Amps are definitely a more convenient travel size. But 100% if you want bad ass sound and ultimate comfort I would highly recommend giving the Tracks Headphones a go. Best part, you can fully customize the Tracks Headphones since the headband, earphones and cables are all fully detachable and interchangable.
At this time it's a sparse selection on colors for customization, but more colors are headed out to the masses in the near future.
