Sol Republic Logo

If you saw my Sol Republic Tracks Headphones review from October 2011, you know I really liked those headphones. Well, I was fortunate enough to be able to try out Sol Republic’s newest product – Tracks Ultra On-Ear Headphones.


SOL REPUBLIC is a global consumer electronics company dedicated to enhancing people’s lives through better-sounding headphones. Founded by consumer electronics veterans Kevin Lee, Scott Hix and Seth Combs who share a vision of ridding the world of hollow-sounding headphones and to make great sound attainable for everyone. SOL REPUBLIC is comprised of music fanatics who develop products from the ground up to make headphones that look, sound and feel unlike anything else in the market. More than just a headphone company, SOL REPUBLIC celebrates the people who make music, love music and are devoted to music. We are committed to creating a community where music fans, athletes and all dreamers are welcome to put a voice to their ideas, share their sound, and be heard.

Designed from the ground up, the new TRACKS ULTRA high performance headphones provide the deepest bass and highest clarity vocals, and are wrapped in a distinct Stellar style all their own.

  • Powerful Sound You Can Feel: Featuring V12 Sound Engines, Tracks Ultra are fully loaded with deeper bass, higher vocal clarity and crisp vocals so you can feel the full power of your music.
  • Listen In Comfort: Our SonicSoft™ Speaker Pads and extra wide ear cushions let you enjoy your music in comfort for hours.

  • Compatibility: 3-button mic + music control is designed specifically for full feature compatibility with recent generations of Apple devices. The audio and mic are likely to work with most devices that have a 3.5mm jack, including but not limited to, Android, Blackberry and Windows devices.


I received a pair of Sol Republic Tracks Ultra On-Ear headphones. The headphones are easy to put together. Just slide the ear cushions onto the head strap, then plug the cables in.

I love these headphones, they have an even fuller sound than the Sol Republic Tracks Headphones. The sound is great loud, and even better really loud. Plus, you can change the headband and cables to suit your own personal taste. I like that these head phones come with a light sleeve to hold everything together while traveling or for storage. The cushion on these headphones is just as soft and comfortable as those on the original Tracks headphones, they are really comfortable on your ears. There’s no outside sound interference like you usually find with ear buds and some on-ear headphones,which makes the sound even better. I would happily recommend these headphones to anyone looking for On-Ear Headphones with a clean and clear full-bodied sound. As such, they are definitely a must for inclusion in this year’s Mom Knows It All Holiday Gift Guide.

Sol Republic Tracks Ultra On-Ear Headphones retail for $179.99.
