Ok there are headphones and there are mega headphones. When the PR for SOL REPUBLIC offered to send me a pair of the Tracks HD On Ear headphones telling me that it had been created by the guy behind Monster Headphones, my interest was immediately piqued. SOL REPUBLIC is a global consumer electronics company dedicated to enhancing people’s lives through better-sounding headphones. Their ethos is to celebrate the people who make music, love music and are devoted to music. I was expecting to find a stylish set so I was pleasantly surprised to see what I would describe as a very slick piece of work. For a start they are the first interchangeable headphones to be launched in the UK. Therefor they are packaged like separate entities; the headband, ear pieces and cable are presented in different compartments and there is even a case for you to pop them in. The headband is described as indestructible, I have to admit that it is pretty sturdy as well as rather bendy but I cannot vouch for whether they are indestructible or not, however they are very comfy due to the padding at the top. You can mix and match the headbands to reflect the mood that you are in as they come in a variety of different colours and styles.
What is so impressive about the headphones is the easy comfort. The ear buds are padded with soft leather which feels very cool and soothing on your ears. They actually slide up and down the headband itself and because of this you can even take them off and use the cans as two portable speakers. The cable is pretty cool too; it has a three-button remote that lets you adjust the volume, skip music and answer or hang-up calls easily. The quality of the sound of course is stunning. You have amazing bass and definition and any outside interference is blocked out. The headphones come in a range of on-ear and in-ear styles and offers you a wonderful music experience featuring V10 HD Sound Engines for deep bass, high clarity and crisp vocals. They are compatible with iPhones, iPads, iPods and Android devices.
