Sounds Reinvention: Colorful Buds from UrbanEars

Do you love listening to music? During working hours, my Zune is always present to keep myself entertained listening to my favorite mp3s. My songlist includes the album of Incubus, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Train, Local Bands, and a variety of songs (even Mandarin songs am not kidding hahaha). Am glad that I've been introduced to the newest and most sophisticated headphones of today - the UrbanEars.

Introducing "Bagis," the new headphone that actually has an in ear units that blocks external sounds while you're listening to your favorite songs. Checking on its composition, it was specifically designed for you to eliminate distortion that causes friction whenever you carry them around your neck or walking/traveling elsewhere. What made it special is the cable that you can actually take calls without pulling off your headphones (yes, it has a built in mic is inside the cable).

What I love is the set of colors released for 2011 Spring. Also, it includes a separate earplug in different sizes that you can choose which one fits the most. I prefer the middle size for its comfortable to use.

Urbanears makes headphones that fit your everyday life. With a legacy in design and functionality, we supply the perfect listening

device for anyone with a pocket full of music and a wish to make the most of it. Launched in December 2009, Urbanears is a global brand that has strong sales worldwide.

What makes Urbanears stand out from other headphone manufacturers is the important role of color in each of our collections. Each  headphone features a monochromatic look and matte finish along with alternative materials. All Urbanears products are made to play  with any music-playing device utilizing a 3.5mm standard socket*. Also included is the functionality of a microphone and remote, as  the majority of all portable music players are also cell phones.

Urbanears has been featured in numerous articles in publications such as Vogue (U.S.) and Elle (U.S). We recently won “People’s Choice” for this year’s Stora Designpriset in Sweden, and have won design awards such as IFA in Germany, and have created exclusive headphones for Wired Magazine.

The Bagis
Featuring earplug construction for direct sound and efficient noise reduction, the Bagis is a compact version of the full Urbanears experience. It features rubber housing along with a combined fabric and TPE cord to eliminate distortions caused by friction. As a bonus, each earpiece snaps together, allowing you to carry them around your neck when not in use.

The Medis

The Medis is an unprecedented experience in ergonomics and functionality. EarClick Construction secures the earpiece at two separate points rather than one, relieving pressure from the ear canal for a more comfortable fit while keeping it firmly in place.

The Tanto
The Tanto is constructed for maximum mobility without the compromise of performance, and is adorned with a sleek and minimalist look. We designed it thinking you’d want the full sound experience in a lightweight and portable headphone made for everyday use—to be taken along wherever you go.

The PlattanThe Plattan is designed to be the perfect classic headphone with all the additional features that make it above and beyond what a static headphone would offer. It is a full size on-ear model with a rich secluded sound in a compact body. It folds down to the size of your fist and comes with a ZoundPlug, allowing for a friend to plug in and share your music.

Plattan PlusPlattan Plus is a version of the Plattan headphone that features an Apple certified microphone and remote, with the additional functionality of volume control. It is sold exclusively in Apple Stores in the U.S. and Canada, and online at and

*The manufacturer of this product makes no claims of compatibility of the microphone and remote
with any mobile device.
