Sennheiser today announced the URBANITE on-ear and URBANITE XL (pictured) over-ear foldable headphones designed for Millennials. The company says they offer massive bass yet still have excellent clarity throughout the entire frequency range. As opposed to other fashion headphones, Sennheiser uses durable high quality materials and metal parts, along with a unique folding mechanism makes them easily portable.
The URBANITE range comes with integrated in line remote control and microphone for taking calls and controlling music on smartphones and tablets, with dedicated versions for either Apple iOS devices, or for Windows or Android-driven devices, such as Samsung Galaxy models.
A range of color choices includes black and denim across all models (both Apple and Samsung), with the iOS URBANITE additionally available in sand, nation and plum and iOS URBANITE XL also available in sand, nation and olive. The stainless-steel hinges add a striking touch of rugged urban style to cool design touches like the color-coordinated fabric-wrapped headband. However, the use of metal – on the premium hinge mechanism and the tough aluminum sliders – ensures these headphones are also styled to last.
The durable sliders and hinges also work with the super soft ear pads to ensure that the listener is insulated from external noise, ensuring great comfort for even long periods of listening enjoyment. And with its larger ear-pads, the Sennheiser URBANITE XL offers even greater levels of comfort.
