Sol Republic Tracks Air Review + Giveaway

Happy Monday all!  With Father's Day now just a few weeks away, I have a screaming opportunity for you all to give the gift of mobile sound to a deserving dad in your life.

Or you could just keep it for yourself.

That's because the fine folks at Sol Republic, who I teamed up with over the holiday's to give away a Deck wireless speaker system, have also now provided me with a pair of Tracks Air wireless headphones to review.  And as a bonus, they have also agreed to send a pair to one of my lucky readers.

I have an Ice-White pair, like these.


That might be you!

I have to admit that I am in love with my pair of Tracks Air headphones, which have noise cancelling sound that is light years better than the wired 'in ear' phones which I had been using before I received them.  In fact, once I put them on, and turn on my choice of audio media, I can't hear any of the screaming going on from my kids, who are pretty loud.  I could literally tune them out!

Okay, I don't do this.  I'm a good Dad after all.  But the point is, that I could if I wanted to!  No, I mostly use my new headphones after they go to bed when I am cleaning dishes or doing laundry or taking out the garbage,  or any number of the other household tasks that I wait to conquer until they are snuggled safely in bed.

At that time, I am usually listening to a baseball game, or some riff heavy garage rock music that Mrs. LIAYF can only stand so much of.   My Tracks Air headphones are perfect for this because I am no longer wired to my music source, getting tangled up in them as I try to get things done.  And best of all they keep a charge for a very long time, so I'm not constantly having to plug them in.

In short, they have been liberating to me as a busy parent.  And that is no exaggeration.

So, now that you know how sweet these wireless headphones are, perhaps you may want to score yourself a pair to give to the Dad in your life for Father's Day?  Or, as I mentioned, you may just want to keep them for yourself.  Don't worry, I won't judge.

In order to be entered to win the pair of Sol Republic Tracks Air wireless headphone all you have to do is leave a comment here telling me what's on your personal playlist when no one else is listening.

For bonus chances to win, you can also tweet about this contest with a link (re-tweets don't count),  or mention it on G +, Facebook, or Instagram.  Follow me for the first time on any of those sites, and I'll add another entry.  Join Luke, I am Your Father through Google Freinds Connect (available on the Right Nav bar of this page) and I'll add two more.

If you do any of those, just make sure you link back to me and also comment here telling me you did so. And while your at it, you might as well check out some of my other content.  I'd appreciate it if you did.

This contest is open residents of the US and Canada only, and a winner will be drawn  on June 1st.  You must also provide a valid way for me to contact you or else your entry won't count.

Full Disclosure.  As I mentioned, Sol Republic provided me with free product to review for this post, but as always, my opinions are not for sale.  I really do love these headphones.

Nothing like Yanni to smooth out the bumps of the day. Yanni's cool, right? I'm pretty sure I've heard all sorts of people talking about how cool he is.

I'm a Springsteen guy here. I like it loud! My boys seem to think my music loud yet have no porblem when their music as at a high decibel level. Go figure!

Dad on the Run said...

When the kids are not listening, I like to put on some old school rap. Maybe 2Pac Ambitions az a Ridah. Anything with a heavy bass line and cursing... stuff I can't enjoy when they are listening and repeating every line.

Sweet headphones. How's the low end?

Oasis. They were beyond pretentious. But I do love their music.

laborders2000 said...

My personal playlist is a mix of things form classical to some hard rock screamo music. I can really go from one extreme to another;) I am happy to pass that I have passed that trait along to my kids too!

Jonnie (JB) said...

When no one else is listening I love to crank up some old New Kids on the Block and sing along as loudly as possible.

Slamdunk said...

Rush. When no one is listening or the kids take over with DIsney stuff.

Nine Inch Nails when only and I can hear it.

Eric Williams said...

I'm pretty open about my musical tastes (aside from keeping nasty stuff away from my kids), so there isn't much that I listen to only when nobody else is listening. The only thing I can think of is sacred chant (Gregorian, Byzantine, or Orthodox), which nobody else in my house wants to listen to. ;)

Aloe Blacc's I'm The Man. Gets me pumped up every time

When no one is listening, I listen to Bonnie Tyler. A LOT. Like A LOT. And I listen to it LOUD because I have to make Bright Eyes turn around SOMEHOW.
