SOL REPUBLIC has announced a new design for its Tracks HD headphones, a result of a collaboration with electronic music artist and DJ, deadmau5. These are just as good as the Tracks HD headphones that you might already be familiar with, so you get the deep bass, crisp vocals, and high clarity in your music. They're also customizable, as the earcups can be removed from the headband. The art is certainly unique though, and we're a sucker for orange.
