Here’s a surprise to exactly no one – I’m obsessed with headphones. I don’t mean just any kind either – I want ’em BIG and LOUD. I love it when the music surrounds me, enhances the beat, pumps the bass, and provides crystal clear sounds.
I received the SOL Republic Tracks HD headphones a few days back and I’m now torn on which I love more – my new Tracks HD or the Beats I caved and purchased a few weeks back. As someone who primarily listens to hip hop, rap, soca, reggae (and then pop) I look for something that provides a sick bass. When I first started listening to music on the Tracks HD (first song was “Rack City” natch), I was blown away. The sound engines (earcups) started thumping and, yes, I got hype.
Tracks HD are the first interchangeable headphones and not only offer great sound but amazing technology. Constructed of a seriously advanced polymer compound, their FlexTech™ Sound Track headband is built to withstand heavy abuse. This means if you’re like me and tend to just throw your headphones in your bag (or, ahem, fall asleep with them on), it can be twisted, bent, and dropped without fear of breaking. Also, you can switch out the headband which is like getting a new set every time! The three-button Mic + Music Control lets you adjust the volume, pause/resume/skip music and answer/hang-up calls. My only cons would be that they don’t bend like my Urbanears, Beats, and Fanny Wang but the Tracks HD comes with a slim-fit carrying case. And really, that’s miniscule compared to everything that you get! The simple fact that the headbands can be twisted and the like without breaking — I’ll take it and not complain.
