Pros: Great Bass, Good Mids, Near Indestructable and Barely any sound leaks
Cons: No case and hurts ears after prolonged use
What we have here with the Sol Republic Tracks is a headphone that can go head to head to Beats headphones.
There are many reasons why they can but I've condensed it down to key reasons why the Tracks can go up against Beats
Beats retail at around $200 - $300
Sol Republic Tracks retail at around $40 - $75
Sol Republic has invented a headband that is near impossible to break and trust me I've tried bending and stretching this way and that way but yet and still they still are in pristine condition
Beats on the other hand are easy too break too easy in fact. After a month of steady use my Beats broke for no apparent reason as I opened them which just boggles my mind how such an expensive headphone can be so cheaply made.
3. Sound Quality
The Sol Republic Tracks as a Beats competitor naturally are focused on Lows more than the highs and mids which I have to admit for the price they do this very well. I was able to listen to Seal's Daylight Saving and could clearly hear the bass and it wasn't too overwhelming.
The Beats on the other hand focus too much on bass while listening to the same song some of the detail was cut off. Now I get that these were tailored with hip-hop and R&B in mind but headphones at least in my opinion should still be versatile.
Are the Sol Republic Tracks perfect? No
Are they worth the buy? Yes
