Engadget Summary

Offering a stylish and comfortable wireless design, the SOL REPUBLIC Tracks Air headphones are competitively priced but the sound profile isn't for everyone. The Tracks Air offer what PC Mag calls a "comfortable design," and ChipChick finds the overall style "hard to top." The Tracks Air have a tighter fit on the head, which allow for a "decent amount of noise isolation," according to Digital Trends. Unfortunately, the Tracks Air's appeal starts to drop off in the sound department, with PC Mag noting their "seriously boosted sub-bass," while Digital Trends says that overall they have a "very muddy sound signature." CNET wasn't thrilled with the sound either, but still says "they acquitted themselves quite well for Bluetooth headphones." If you are in need of a pair of wireless headphones, and enjoy a lower-end sound stage, the Tracks Air are worth your attention.
