Zound Industries together with industrial designers Norra Norr are the design and development team behind the Scandinavian headphone brand Urbanears. They make headphones that fit your everyday life, responding to a growing demand for design in lifestyle apparel by creating headphones to fit the modern and self-expressive customer’s everyday life and desires. With a legacy in functionality, Urbanears supply the perfect listening device for anyone with a pocket full of music and a wish to make the most of it.
The launch collection of Urbanears headphones display individuality and expression to match preferences in size, style, design, function and relation to music. Plattan, Tanto and Medis – named after some of Stockholm’s most vibrant locations – are designed to optimize sound reproduction and to captivate self-aware customers with a desire for exclusive designs made for everyday wearing. A nice selection is available @ SuperFlyDeluxe.
All models carry their own personalities but share the characteristics of classic design with much attention to details. In addition, each Urbanears headphone comes stock with microphone and remote compatible with Nokia, Iphone, Blackberry and HTC among others.
The Plattan is a medium size headphone allowing for rich, secluded sound. And for maximum mobility, you can fold it down to the size of your fist for safe keeping when not in use. It also comes with a custom microphone and remote which is compatible with iPhone, Nokia, HTC and Blackberry.
Tanto is a tribute to the ‘80’s revolution in mobile music, updated with the latest technology and is designed for maximum mobility without the compromise of performance. Made for everyday use, to be taken along wherever you go, like a good friend.
Medis has a sleek and minimal design and the functionality of its larger siblings but the obvious benefits of in-ear. The revolution, however, is the EarClick patent which anchors the ear-piece securely in place with perfect comfort and lets it stay in place. EarClick is the result of years of development and an ergonomic revolution of in-ear headphones. The construction is based on securing the position in the outer ear at two opposing points.
The Urbanears headphones are retailed between €40 & €60 and all models will be available in 14 colors presented in a friendly matte finish.
