Online Sale: Karmaloop.com: Free Shipping + New URBANEARS


With 14 different colorways, super durable fabric cords, microphone and remote systems compatible with most cell phones, a retro 1980’s aesthetic and more features than a penny peep show, Stockholm-based Urbanears headphones are cooking up the hottest sound pieces since the Swedish Chef dropped his stereo in a pot of lutefisk soup… bork, bork!

The sleek Scandinavian collective at Urbanears goes far beyond superior sound quality and promotes a deeper connection to color, form and the personality of its consumer. That’s right, listening to music is now a fashion statement – if you haven’t heard, now is the time to take those eardrum-busting stock models off and bring ‘em out with the trash. While coincidently allowing the freedom to transcend individuality and unify the sound experience, Urbanears furthermore takes pride in creating headphones that fit everyday life, providing an ideal listening device for anyone with a cache of solid tunes and the desire to make (and hear) the most of them.

The knäckebröd, or “bread” for all you non-Nordic folk, and butter of the Urbanears line are the Plattan headphones, full-sized stereo models featuring rich, secluded sound and foldable convenience that brings them down to the size of a fist for maximum portability. Showcasing just one of Urbanears’ many innovative features, the Plattan headphones present the “zound plug,” an outlet at the earphone that allows a friend to plug in and jam to your soundtrack – just make sure to remove all of those guilty pleasures from the music library on your mp3 player first.

Don’t be fooled by the Tanto headphone’s retro looks – these are not your parents’ old-school Walkman stock pieces. Paying tribute to the 1980’s revolution in mobile music, the Tanto models sound as dope as they look and make for a highly desirable option for those who are constantly on the go… but take heed, go-getters: the forthcoming Medis earbud models are as small in size as they are big in sound, and with the “EarClick” interchangeable pads on each bud, it’s a sure bet these will stay in place whether you’re at the gym, skating the local ramps or running from the cops on another wasted weekend night. The Medis headphones drop April 2010, so be sure to check back at Karmaloop.com for the latest release news.
