Product Description

Product Description

The Concept…

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.

Who we think you are…

Much more important than anything else, we make Urbanears for you. We know for a fact that you are carrying a few week’s worth of music in your pocket, or maybe audio books, language courses or simply a radio receiver. Statistically you are a city dweller listening to whatever this device holds going back and forth to work or school, at your desk, walking, riding you bike, running, travelling or just sinking in to your music with full attention. However, just as likely you live in a remote forest, it really doesn’t matter. We are convinced that you would consider the aesthetics of any type of hat before you bought it and put it on and that you feel the same way about a headphone.

The Tanto Headphone: Indigo…

The Tanto is constructed for maximum mobility without the compromise of performance, adorned with a sleek and minimalistic look. We designed it thinking you want the full sound experience in a lightweight and portable headphone made for everyday use to be taken along wherever you go like a good friend. Compatible with 3.5mm standard music players and available in a range of colours (dark grey/true white/tomato/mocca /indigo/black/raspberry/mustard), the Tanto is the ultimate on ear headphone.

The Tanto features super soft earpads with an adjustable headband which ensures you get the perfect fit and are treated to comfortable listening, even after wearing them for several hours. The ball joint construction consisting of a pivoting ball optimises ergonomics. To help keep you on the go Tanto headphones come with an in-line microphone and remote (compatible with most devices using unprotected 3.5mm standard; ie. Blackberry, HTC, iPhone) so that you can take calls and pause and play your music with ease. The combined fabric and TPE 1.2 metre cord eliminates distortions caused by friction and prevents unwanted tangles. Furthermore, if you by chance would like to take the lightweight Tanto off of your head, they comfortably sit around your neck for easy transportation.

As well as being designed to a high tech spec and looking great as an accessory on the go, the Tanto also sound great with a frequency range of 20 – 20,000Hz, an impedance of 32 ohms and sensitivity of 112dB, providing fantastic quality sound directly to your ears. So now you know where they’re at with the Tanto Headphones.

Bought these because my old plattan's broke. They're a lot cheaper, and they're worth every penny. No sense complaining they don't sound as good as high end pairs because I didn't just drop a hundred pounds, I dropped twenty, and they're over the ears with a good sound quality.

Also my oldies were red ad I went indigo (because it was the cheapest) for a change and its a really nice colour. I don't know if that matters to you. If it does, there you go.

Um... Yeah, they work.

Excellent sound quality. These are nice and small and fit nicely over the ears without putting pressure.I was never keen on the ear pieces that fitted inside the ears. These are a great find.

Great headphones! 22 Sept. 2011
By Julio Robles - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
These headphones are awesome! I've been looking for some headphones to replace my earbuds that always break within months no matter what type I get. A couple of key things that stand out:
-Looks: I love the retro look in these! Unlike other headphones, they don't have the companies logo plastered everywhere. They also have a wide variety of colors to choose from. They're simple, but awesome imo. True eye candy and make heads turn, a great fashion accessory.
-Comfort: One of the biggest complaints with big over the ear headphones is that usually within half an hour, they feel extremely uncomfortable, almost like a vicegrip on your head! Not with these, they're so light, yet fit snug and almost any head since they're size adjustable as well. I can wear them all day with no problem.
-Sound quality: Well.... you get what you pay for. Its great, no muddy sound, great bass, no static or anything like that. You just can't compare it to high-end super expensive headphones.
-Other: Instead of using wire, they use this neat fabric cord that doesn't tangle like wires do. It also doesn't feel flimsy so its reassuring that it won't rip, break, or short easily. The phone headset feature is also neat :)
Overall, these are awesome headphones, especially for the prize. Definetly underrated compared to the Urbanears Plattan....

My 10 y.o. Daughter LOVES them! 18 April 2012

An Easter present that she is thrilled with. Cool design and very good audio quality (I'm a semiprofessional musician and have tried them out). Great buy for the price. Too bad they didn't come with a case. They look flimsy in pictures but are solidly constructed.

Love these 20 Oct. 2013
By Angela - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: OrangeSize Name: One Size Verified Purchase
I have trouble wearing ear buds but like the idea of having a microphone to take phone calls. I primarily use these for wroking out and running. I have a small head and they fit quite well. Never do the slip or fall off. I don't know much when it comes to headphones and music quality, but the music and audiobooks I listen to sound great to me. Also, the microphone for calls works well, even in windy conditions. Very happy with these.

Great headphones 20 Sept. 2013

The headphone colors were really cute. My friend loved it and it was really unique around campus when everyone's using beats or iphone headphones.
i love these headphones! 1 Nov. 2014

bought these for work, as i was tired of ear buds. wanted something where people around me could tell i had headphones on, but something that didnt block out all sound around me.

these headphones have excellent audio quality (particularly for the style). the mic is an added bonus. nice extra long fabric covered cable, very high quality and does not transfer sound when it is handled. i also have a very small head and these headphones fit great and are comfortable.

only minus one star because i was slightly disappointed with the ear foam, the color is not as bright as in the photograph (this may be due to this product sitting around on a shelf for a long time as ive had other foam ear pads fade). additionally i know these are going to get dirty after time and i dont think the company sells replacement pads (esp with this model being discontinued).

urbanears, hear me when i say BRING BACK THE TANTO!!! such a wonderful pair of headphones, id buy 4 pair if these were rereleased!
