A couple months ago I was introduced to a new line of headphones called SOL REPUBLIC (Soundtrack Of Life), founded by Kevin Lee, Scott Hix and Seth Combs. You may know Kevin Lee, SOL REPUBLIC’s CEO, he is son of the founder of Monster Cable Noel Lee and a longtime senior executive of Monster Cable and credited for driving the widely popular Beats by Dr. Dre line of headphones at Monster. If you’re a fan of Monster and Beats by Dr. Dre, I’m pretty sure you’ll love SOL REPUBLIC too, plus the price points are far more affordable.

The Tracks feature swappable headbands, speakers and cables in various colors, designs and performance, SOL REPUBLIC on-ear Tracks headphones can be customized to match your style, music and desired performance. Fashion and music always goes hand in hand, so this is a great feature to be able to mix and match. It also feature an advanced new polymer called FlexTech™, which makes them “virtually indestructible” as SOL REPUBLIC says. I’ve tested them out, twisted them, sat on it, bent it in all different directions and it’s still intact. This is perfect for those like me that travel a lot because I’m quite clumsy, I’ll either sit on my headphones, drop them or step on them when I’m in a hurry.

Another important thing is the Tracks is lightweight and comfortable on the ears and off on the neck. As a gurl, I don’t want my headphones to weigh a ton especially when I’m out and about. Plus it’s nicely designed. But most importantly the sound is quite good, crisp and the headphones keeps outside noise out. I’m not going to pretend like I’m a pro and compare with other headphones but I can say the sound is way better than your average earbuds and for those that don’t want to break the bank for super premium headphones, this is the perfect in between.

SOL REPUBLIC Tracks on-ear headphones start at $99.99 and are available with interchangeable headbands and cables and SOL with different finishes, colors. Available at
