Soundtrack Sol Republic headphones have a lot to offer. They are pretty comfortable, sound pretty good, and look good too. But there is one thing they are missing - noise cancellation. Which, for that matter, is where the soundtrack of the Sol Republic Headphones Pro come in.
The Soundtrack Pro headphones are not cheap, coming in at $200. While it's cheaper than some other premium noise canceling headphones, like Sony's Thing-1000XM3 headphones, it's still a ton of money. Do they cost money, or should you keep savings? We put the Sol Republic Soundtrack Pro headphones to the test to find out.
The Sol Republic Soundtrack Pro headphones look like standard soundtrack headphones, although that's not a bad thing. The headphones come in several different colors, including black, grey, and champagne. We analyze the black model, and how sleek and stylish look and feel. And, they have a little fun touch to them too with the green cloth inside the ear pads.
When it comes to control, you get the main power button, which on this model also controls the noise cancellations, as well as a set of volume controls and a central control button. There is also a USB-C port and an AUX port for wired use.
In the box, in addition to the headphones themselves, you will receive an AUX cable and a USB-c charging cable. Unfortunately, there's no bag or case here - which is a little disappointing for a $200 pair of headphones.
Comfort-level headphones are very similar to standard soundtrack headphones too. There is good padding in the ear cups and overall they feel good on the head.
The main problem with the comfort of these headphones is that they have a relatively tight clamp. You'll get used to it over time, and for most it won't be too much of a problem, but it's still something to keep in mind.
The sound quality of these headphones is quite pleasant, which is what you would expect from a pair of headphones in the $200 price range. There is tuning, so if you're a music lover and want a natural experience, you can keep looking. Everything, however, is serious. enjoy the sound quality on offer.
The bass response, for starters, is deep and solid, which ensures that the kicks can easily punch their way through the mix, and the bass guitars are nice and smooth. Bass extension is good, but perhaps not as deep as some other headphones. Which, however, is a minor problem - BASS as a whole still sound great here.
The mids on these headphones sound great too. They scooped a little, but not too much - and you still get enough for things like vocals to sound good and for a decent amount of warmth in the lower mids.
There are many high frequencies to choose from which helps make the music more detailed and exciting. The cymbals hiss nicely, while there is a good amount of vocal hiss to help the vocals stick out a little more.
Noise cancellation on these headphones is pretty good, and it easily cut out noise or engine noise from the blueprint. There is only one problem - noise cancellation significantly changes the overall frequency range of the headphones. With noise isolation, the bass is cut off quite a bit, and the sound is a bit thinner overall. It's a little frustrating considering the fact that these headphones are so good in other areas.
The Zol Republic Soundtrack Pro headphones connect to your device via Bluetooth and 5.0, and we found that they retained pretty good access throughout the test.
They have too long battery life - going for 32 hours without recharging. It's safe to say that these headphones are up to the last weeks of normal use, which is always at hand.
Soundtrack Sol Republic Pro headphones have a lot going for them. They are well designed and comfortable, plus they sound great. It's annoying that headphones don't sound as good with noise cancellation - as the main reason to buy these soundtrack headphones is noise cancellation.
Given the altered sound, is there a pair of noise canceling headphones in this price range? Well, yes. The best noise-canceling headphones in the sub-$200 price range are represented by the IR-4.50 headphone device.
However, these headphones have a lot to offer - and that's why we give them a silver headphone medal commentary.
