Sol Republic announced the Master Tracks over-ear headphones, featuring a new X3 Sound Engine, delivering an immersive music experience balanced with powerful bass, clear highs and vocal accuracy. The over-ear design and articulating ear cushions provide a comfortable fit and noise isolation for hours on end. Like all SOL REPUBLIC headphones, Master Tracks are virtually indestructible. Constructed from SOL REPUBLIC’s proprietary polymer called FlexTech, Sound Track headbands can be twisted, bent or dropped without worry.
The interchangeable Sound Track headbands and cables let you change colors and styles as easily as you change your clothes. The striking shape, large over-ear design and head pads combine for a new level of comfort that enables you to comfortably enjoy your music for hours. And for the music fans who have amassed a collection of SoundTrack headband colors, Master Tracks x3 Sound Engines are backward compatible with current Tracks cables and headbands.
Inspiration for the sound of the X3 Sound Engines came from the music experiences you get from a great-sounding nightclub. While not all clubs sound the same, the best ones have big, immersive sound systems so well powered that what you hear is controlled, dynamic, tight and clean. What you feel is the power and emotion of the music without it just being “loud.”
To provide that rich, deep and powerful sound, Master Tracks feature SOL REPUBLIC’s new X3 Sound Engine, delivering super-deep bass that stays amazingly tight with smooth, controlled highs. But the true beauty lies in the X3’s mid range. Mids is where voice lives and because most people know what it’s supposed to sound like, many manufacturers tune it if they cannot reproduce it accurately. Master Tracks X3 Sound Engines deliver mid range vocals so clearly, that we showcase it instead of hiding it.
Scott Hix, SOL REPUBLIC President, notes: “Since we founded SOL REPUBLIC, our goal has always been to bring great sound to the masses. Master Tracks is a natural extension of this mission. Whether you prefer an in-ear, on-ear or over-ear headphone, you can experience the unmatched combination of SOL REPUBLIC’s sound, style and technology.”
