SOL REPUBLIC x Motorola Tracks AIR Wireless Headphones Review & Giveaway!

I am a horrible singer. Absolutely dreadful as one overly critical television music talent judge would say. But that doesn’t stop me from having a strong love of music. I can’t imagine a day that goes by that I don’t have some kind of music playing. I need it on when I am cleaning the house, exercising, and of course, baking my holiday cookies. There’s just something about the feelings you get when you are listening to your favorite songs. It can get your body moving, take you on an escape, or bring back sweet memories. I grew up listening to all kinds of music, so narrowing down a favorite song or genre would be difficult. However, I do have certain genres that I turn to for various activities, depending on my mood. You will most likely hear some 80’s tracks when I clean, rap and hip hop when I exercise, country when I cook, and Disney or pop tunes when riding in the car with my girls.

Since music is such a huge part of my daily life, I want to hear it at it’s best all the time. My husband bought me a cutesy pair of earphones last year because they had a fun character on them that he thought I would like. The character was about all they were good for. The sound quality was terrible, with static coming through every time I moved, and muffled sounds where the instruments should have been clear. Those headphones lasted about a week before they went into a junk drawer, where they still sit untouched today. Since then, I have been slowly been doing research for a high quality pair of headphones, and think I have found the winner in SOL REPUBLIC Tracks AIR Wireless headphones.



New to the market, in just 2 short years SOL REPUBLIC is proving to be the leader as one of the fastest growing lifestyle brands in headphones. The brand is known for delivering high quality products, but at a price most consumers can afford. SOL REPUBLIC has teamed with Motorola to bring you Tracks AIR. An innovative pair of headphones that will deliver an exceptional sound experience when you put them on.

“Wireless headphones often lack the music experience found in their wired counterparts. Thanks to the A2 Sound Engines, Tracks AIR delivers a music experience that has solid bass, clean mids and vocals, and extended highs. Developed specifically for Bluetooth audio, the A2 Sound Engines are also very power efficient so you can have volume and bass punch without additional battery drain.”

SOL REPUBLIC generously send me a set of Tracks Air Wireless headphones to review. What I first noticed was the the sleek design, even before taking it out of the packaging.


Upon opening the box, I was pleased to see they took preventative measures to keep the headphones scratch free with a protective covering.



The logo was classy, not gaudy or big, so it doesn’t draw too much attention to your head. Connecting the earphones to the headband was a breeze. Just slide the headband into the earphone slot and you're done. It goes in super easy, and the earphones slide effortlessly up and down the band to make adjusting to your size a cinch.



The headband bends very easily to put over your head, and made with darn near indestructible material, you don’t have to worry about it snapping if you pull too hard. Though I would not recommend yanking it around to see if it will break, the headband could take a beating and still stay together. There is a soft, padded strip on the underside of the headband which makes wearing these extra comfortable. The earphones are nicely padded and covered with a soft material (I want to say vinyl, but I am not 100% here) with a thick padding on the inside, which cover your ears comfortably.


There are 3 buttons on the right earphone. The power button, volume control, and a multipurpose button good for things like answering your calls from your Bluetooth device. They are small enough to blend in with the casing, but easy enough to locate with the quick pass of a finger. The right earphone also has a Micro USB Charge Port, Wired Cable Jack, and 2 microphones on the underside.

 
Syncing the SOL REPUBLIC Tracks AIR with my wireless devices was way easier than I anticipated. I simply enabled the Bluetooth function on my device and it syncs automatically once the headphones are turned on. The sound quality is just unbelievable! I have been amazed at the clarity of the sound coming through! The bass booms, and I am hearing background instruments in songs that I never noticed before. I am rediscovering new sounds in all my old favorite songs! These work fabulously at blocking outside noises. When I am at the gym, I can usually hear their music playing while wearing my old earphones. With the Tracks AIR, I only hear my music.

What I love best about these headphones is that they are wireless. I like to run, and I have ruined 2 iPods by accidentally yanking on the cords when I swing my arms, resulting in my iPod flying across the gym and smashing on the concrete floor. I knew my next pair of headphones had to be wireless to prevent that from happening again, and these have fit the bill perfectly. Also, when I run, I have had issues with other earphones sliding off my head or out of my ears. The Tracks AIR stays in place during my entire run. At first, I worried about my ears getting too hot during my workouts because of all the cushioning in the earphones, but they do not hold heat in like I was expecting, so my ears stay relatively cool and dry during my workout. Weighing in at only 1.4 pounds, they are so lightweight, I hardly even notice they are on.


SOL REPUBLIC Tracks AIR headphones have a 15 hour battery life, which is twice as much as standard headphones, so you don't have to worry about losing power on long car trips or flights. The wireless range goes up to 150 feet while providing clear sound without having to tote around your phone or tablet. Also offered is dual connectivity, so you can connect two devices simultaneously, such as your phone, tablet or computer. Seamlessly answer a call while watching a movie on your tablet without having to disconnect devices. Swap from a movie on your tablet to your phone with the touch of a button. The duel-device connectivity allows you to easily switch back and forth without the hassle of disconnecting via Bluetooth and NFC pairing.


SOL REPUBLIC Tracks AIR headphones are perfect for anyone who wants crisp, clear sound when listening to music or watching their favorite shows. I love using mine at the gym, my teen daughter has been taking them to her room to rock out with, and my 10 year old likes to sit in the living room and watch a movie on my iPad without disturbing my husband while he watches football. Everyone in my family has found a way to incorporate Tracks AIR into their daily lives too!

  9. I'm a terrible singer but love music too. AND I've had the wire mishap before too...running on my treadmill and I pulled the wire, which catapulted the device (that by some small miracle did not break), which snagged on the treadmill, and pulled the whole entire plug/socket out of the wall. I kid you not. Talk about a freaky moment. That makes the wireless function on these my favorite feature.

  12. I like that they will allow you to connect up to 2 devices simultaneously for versatile use. I am looking for a headphone for a relative that is in a nursing home so she can use her tablet to listen to music, skype or watch her tv without the noise of the shared room she has.

  13. Good luck to all my American friends. I will have to see if these are available in Canada. I sit on a tractor for 8 hours a day mowing and these or something like these would be awesome Theresa!! I wonder if they would drown out the noise of my tractor??

    Replies
    1. Karen, I do think these would do a great job at blocking out the tractor noise. However, I have never ridden on a tractor so I am not quite sure how loud they are when on one, so I won't guarantee that. I would imagine that there is a lot of vibration on the tractor, so you might hear the vibration noises through your body. Does that make sense? Like when I run, I can sometimes pick up the stomping noise that travels through my body. I imagine it would be the same with a tractor ride.

  15. Yay! I did my daily entry stuff and the Monster Popcorn Balls pinned correctly. Yay!

    I wanted to pin the cookies you made the day before yesterday but I had the 'hang up' again. It is my computer that is the issue. When I hover over the "pin it" box, it won't engage. Oh, Oh, I have a non-engaging curser, oh dang. LOL

    Have a marvelous day. We have snow coming down in torrents as I type.
