Sol Republic may not be the biggest name in headphones, but it has been the home of quality products for the past few years. His latest soundtrack headphones Sol headphones.
At first glance, the headphones have a lot going for them - like the fact that they have a massive 42-hour battery life. But they're also a bit more expensive, coming in at $170, and they don't offer extras like noise cancellation.
Headphones soundtrack salt worth buying? We put them to the test to find out.
When you first take these headphones out of your window, you will notice that their design is they are good looking headphones. They feature a sleek black color scheme with splashes of green on the inside of the ear pads. They're minimalistic enough to look great anyway, but there are enough design quirks to make them interesting.
On the right ear of the cup is where you'll find the controls - specifically, you'll get a power button, a USB-C port, and a 3,5mm port on the bottom cup, and on the top, you'll have three volume buttons and a central control button.
The earbuds seem to be made from high quality materials - and they never felt like they were going to break during use.
In the box, in addition to the headphones themselves, you will receive a USB-c charging cable and an AUX cable. We would like to see a case or bag, especially for a pair of headphones in this price range.
The fact that the headphones are built from high quality materials translates into a relatively comfortable experience, while the comfort level is not ideal. In particular, the clip on the headphones is relatively tight, and while they do loosen up a bit over time and you get used to the feeling, a little lighter clipping would be nice.
In addition, the headphones are generally comfortable. There is a good indentation in the ear pads, and enough under the headband.
One of the best things about these headphones is that they sound great. They deliver deep, premium sound quality, and while there are custom settings here that may not make them the best choice for audiophiles, others will get a lot out of the sound quality.
Notably, the headphones deliver deep and powerful bass, allowing kicks and basses to easily pound their way through the mix. The bass extension isn't necessarily as deep as some, but it's still not bad - and those who find good bass important will be happy with them.
The mid-range is well tuned, if only a little scooped up. the low-mids are relatively warm, and while things like vocals and guitar take up a bit of space thanks to the scoop, it's not over-the-top - and you don't notice it all.
There are plenty of highs on offer here, and while they're not as crisp as some, for a pair of headphones in this price range, they sound great.
These headphones don't offer noise cancellation - you'll need to upgrade to the more expensive Soundtrack Pro Headphones for that.
Perhaps the best thing about these headphones is that they have excellent battery life. In fact, with normal use, Saul claims you'll get an incredible 42 hours of use - that's far more than the vast majority of over-the-ear headphones out there.
The headphones connect to a device to listen to music via Bluetooth 5.0, and we found that they maintained excellent connectivity throughout the testing process.
The Sol soundtrack headphones have a lot to offer. While they don't have the most comfortable fit out there, they look and sound good.
But is it the best option in its price range? Well, for those who want many pairs of wireless headphones that have excellent battery life, yes. These are perfectly headphones to go - if you're a music lover, in which case it's worth taking a look at the many pairs of wired headphones.
Thanks to their nice design and good sound quality, we award these headphones with a silver headphone medal.
