Sol Republic has released two new pairs of headphones, including the Soundtrack and the Soundtrack Pro ANC wireless headphones.
Originally announced at CES 2019 last year, the Sol Republic Pro ANC are Sol Republic's first ANC over-ear wireless headphones. Both models fold up for easy portability and deliver the company's signature sound that includes immersive audio alongside an emphasis on deep bass, clear mids, and crisp highs.
Onboard controls let you control calls and music with the touch of a button. Adjust the volume, pause/resume/skip music tracks and answer/hang-up calls.
"It was important for us to bring the right new product to the market and it took refinement and precision to bring that vision to life," says Sol Republic's Director of Product Development, Josh Poulsen, referencing the fact that the company has not released a new product in a year.
The Soundtrack and Soundtrack Pro ANC are both built on the popular Tracks HD and Master Tracks headphones, adding more modern features and technologies.
The Soundtrack wireless headphones (SOL-HP1400) feature a lightweight, comfortable fit paired with a 42-hour battery life. The noise-isolating, over-ear design features memory foam cushions, silky silicone headband padding, and sturdy construction, including stainless steel hinges. Using USB-C quick charge technology, you can get an additional 4.5 hours of use after just 15 minutes. Other features include 40mm drivers, four-button controls with mic, and an aux cable for wired listening. They come in black and sell for an MAP of US$170.
At MAP US$200, the Soundtrack Pro ANC (SOL-HP1410) offer 32-hour battery life (15 minute quick charge affords another three hours), 40mm drivers, and digital hybrid noise cancellation technology that employs a four-mic system to intercept outside noise while preserving audio quality. A monitor mode feature allows for a quick pause of both music and ANC for convenient conversation without having to remove the headphones. Following similar construction to the Soundtrack, Soundtrack Pro ANC features a built-in microphone and onboard controls within a foldable design, but with a leather-wrapped memory foam ear cushion for a more comfortable fit and sleeker look. Also available with an aux cable for wired listening when desired or when the battery is depleted, they come in black, champagne, or gray.
