SOL Republic Tracks Headphones

I want to introduce you to the SOL Republic Tracks Headphones ($99), the first interchangeable on-ear headphones featuring V8 sound engine speakers, switchable cables and “Sound Track” headbands. I received these in the mail last month and I absolutely love them. Great sound quality and comfort packaged into a lightweight minimalistic design. The shape conformed to my head nicely and the inside padding on the top was a nice touch. I was really impressed by how these SOL Republics headphones canceled out exterior sound making it nearly impossible to hear anything but the music playing.

SOL Republic engineers developed a proprietary new polymer called FlexTech, which makes them virtually indestructible. For total comfort, the team designed the Tracks ear cushions to be large and lightweight. The optimal balance of size, style, sound and comfort Tracks have extreme comfort because the ear cushion is large and lightweight so there is reduced pressure on the ear Tracks are available in black, white and red.
