Urbanears is a collective out of Scandinavia, motivated by a common interest in global relationships and shared involvement in the relevance of the living brand. Urbanears promotes a deeper connection to colour, form and people while providing the freedom to transcend individuality and unify the sound experience. We wanted to produce headphones with a profound understanding of how they are utilised and why. We call this design and in our world design is the transformation of functionality to the human being.
Our vision was to add a number of elements to the concept of performance. Beyond the obvious sound rendition we had a vision of making headphones that felt more like clothes than chromed plastics and felt good to wear in a public space. We design headphones with much respect to what they are expected to be but with great attention the details. As Urbanears headphone is always describable as a classic headphone rather than a bold design statement redefining the product category.
Our vision is to make Urbanears available and we spend much time and attention to making our products as affordable as can be. Still we want each item to have something a little extra and a bit unique. From the way it fits, works or an extra little functionality you wouldn’t expect.
In our times as music listeners we’ve seen a number of formats. From everlasting vinyl to extinct minidiscs, we are absolutely convinced the binary format of your favourite songs will change from time to time, but remain stored digitally. This revolution has allowed you to carry on your full collection in your pocket and get everything you might not have streamed. With this format music has migrated from designated players into mobile phones and other portable devices. It just seems stupid not to add a microphone and a remote, allowing you to pick up calls and communicate. We work hard to make your Urbanears work with the most possible devices out there.
