Holiday Gift Guide 2014: SOL REPULIC Tracks Air Wireless Headphones (Review and Giveaway!)

Disclosure: I received this product to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.



Over the past while, I've had the chance to review a number of headphones and Bluetooth speakers on this blog.  I love using them for playing music while I clean my floors for the 1 billionth time per day or fold my 300th load of laundry.  Some of my favorite products in the headphone/speaker line are those from SOL REPUBLIC.  The products are always ridiculously simple to set up and deliver great sound.  My newest headphones are no exception to that rule.  They are the SOL REPUBLIC Tracks Air, Wireless Bluetooth headphones.



I had to run to take my kids to swim lessons shortly after opening the box with the headphones in them, and left everything sitting out on my kitchen counter. Later, when my husband walked into the room, his first reaction was "wow! Look at those cool headphones!" He promptly turned them on and connected them to his phone, then remarked that the sound on them was really good. I also found pairing the headphones to my iPod to be a snap. It really was just a matter of turning on the headphones and Bluetooth on my iPod and pressing one button. 

These are really cool headphones. First of all, each ear's speaker can be removed from the flexible headband. They can also be adjusted up and down on the headband to fit your head perfectly. I love this feature, as it makes it easier for both Daniel and I to use them and have the headphones fit us both.  The headphones are wireless, but if you're in a situation where you need to use them as a wired headset, they come with wires to attach the speakers to your device.  I found the speakers to be soft and comfortable on my ears, and I appreciated that the top of the headband is padded as well.

Both Daniel and I remarked that these headphones would be great for traveling or using in noisy situations, as they block out a lot more noise than the in-ear headphones that we generally use. I need to plan a trip just to have more chances to use my new Tracks Air! 

The Tracks Air have a battery life that's reported to be 15 hours. I haven't had enough spare time lately to test that claim, but so far the battery has held up very well. And it's been my experience that SOL REPUBLIC products live up to their battery life claims. Another cool feature is that these headphones can be paired up to two devices at the same time! 

Right now, SOL REPUBLIC is offering a 100 day money-back guarantee. So if you buy the Tracks Air and don't like them (which I find hard to believe), no worries! 

And I have even more good news- one lucky reader will win a pair of Tracks Air! Open to US and Canadian mailing addresses, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.
