The Urbanears concept is the product of a number of different ideas. Some have shaped the project from the get-go but just as many came along the way. Most importantly, there seemed to be no manufacturer of headphones out there that shared our beliefs about what headphones are and how they are used. Our passion is to make headphones with a profound understanding of how they are worn and why they are used the way they are.
Our vision is to add a number of elements to the concept of performance. Beyond the obvious sound performance, we have a vision of making headphones that feel more like clothing than chromed plastic. We design headphones in accordance with what they are expected to be but with great attention to detail. A pair of Urbanears headphones can always be described as a classic rather than a bold design statement that redefines the product category.
We spend much time making our headphones affordable. Still we want each product to always come with a little extra functionality you wouldn’t expect. And deliver great audio as well as ergonomics. Equally important, we work hard at making Urbanears available in a store near you.
The evolution of music formats has allowed you to carry your full collection in the pocket. Music has migrated from designated players into cell phones. It just seems stupid not to add a microphone and a remote, allowing you to pick up calls and communicate. We try to make your Urbanears compatible with as many devices as possible.
