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.

At $200, the Sol Republic Tracks Air aren't cheap, but they're better priced than some of the premium Bluetooth headphone competition -- and sound relatively good, too, with a strong feature set.

The SOL Republic Tracks Air are Bluetooth headphones that will appeal to lovers of powerful deep bass and drive away those seeking a balanced sound.

The design is great, both functionally and visually. The Airs a perfect example of what bluetooth headphones should be.

If you love their modular, wireless design and dig a soft, bass-heavy sound, the Air may be an option for you. Otherwise, we recommend looking elsewhere.

They sound familiar, driving with plenty of that Sol Republic bass while at the same time sounding balanced. They've got a lot of power for cans their size so don't explode your hearing like I almost did when I first slid them on.

The Airs weren't that comfortable, either. I'm kind of spoiled since I'm used to Bose's absolutely pampering earcups in my regular QuietComfort 3 cans, but after an hour or so wearing the Tracks Air, they felt a little tight.

This piece of technology comes in black or white – of course – with interchangeable headband color for your enjoyment. Beyond that, it’s all new. Here you’ll be working with a 150-foot wireless range.

These are my 3rd pair of Sol Republics, and I've loved all of them. These are somewhere around the sound quality of the v8's, but I personally think they are slightly more comfortable, the downside to that is that the headband doesn't seem quite as durable (I can still bend it flat with no...
