As detail-oriented and engineering-focused as most audio companies are, comfort usually feels like the last consideration on a pair of headphones. Sol Republic Master Tracks puts this concern at the forefront, with huge, soft, pillowy, over-the-ear cups and a leather-cushioned headband that make the technology disappear and put the music at the forefront. Driven by the balanced Master Tracks X3 sound engine, these cans emit beefy bass while not drowning out the higher end. And even better, your neighbor won’t be rocking out with you, as the sound isolates well, keeping your tunes to yourself. At $199, these headphones are a good investment for fledgling audiophiles. But as the price drops this holiday season, they’re becoming a steal.
