There are not a lot of gadgets my tech-loving husband does not already have, but a pair of wireless headphones has been on his list for a while now. His job requires him to travel often, and he already owned a wired pair of SOL REPUBLIC headphones (his go-to choice when traveling). So I knew he would be thrilled to leave the wires behind review the SOL REPUBLIC Tracks AIR on-ear wireless headphones.
The SOL REPUBLIC Tracks AIR on-ear headphones deliver the exceptional sound quality SOL REPUBLIC is known for, but delivers it does so wirelessly from any compatible Bluetooth device such as tablets and smartphones. The TRACKS AIR feature a range of up to 150′, 15-hour battery life and can even connect to two devices at the same time, to make switching between your tablet and phone seemless.
Setting up the SOL REPUBLIC Tracks AIR headphones was quick and easy. After unpacking I charged the right “Sound Engine” (fancy term for the on-ear speaker), and then attached both right and left Sound Engines to the PowerTrack headband. The design is pretty innovative as the battery is contained only in the right Sound Engine, and the PowerTrack headband has an integrated connector that powers the left Sound Engine without any wires.
When you power on the Tracks AIR for the first time they automatically go into pairing mode, and they were quick to connect with my husband’s iPhone. If your device supports NFC, you can also tap your device to the right Sound Engine to pair the headphones (I did not have a compatible device to test this feature).
Another cool feature of the Tracks AIR is the voice cues when you first turn them on that tell you have many hours of battery life are remaining. Don’t worry, even if you do run out of power you can use the included cable to to keep rocking until you have a chance to recharge. The Tracks AIR also features an integrated mic so you can take calls without taking them off too.
After using them for the past few weeks my husband is still happy as day one with the Tracks AIR headphones and has no plans on going back to his old pair. They certainly get his seal of approval, and would make a great gift for any audio lover on your shopping list.
