Urbanears Plattan Plus (Purple)

 

The $60 Urbanears Plattan Plus headphones are an Apple Store exclusive and appear nearly identical to the original Plattan model , but with an added remote control on the wire and Urbanears' unique ZoundPlug that lets a friend attach another pair of...

The Urbanears Plattan Plus are a budget-friendly pair of over-ear headphones available in a variety of colors to match your style, and they sound pretty good, too.

A deep bump in the lower sonic spectrum gives electronic and hip-hop tracks an audible muddiness.

The Urbanears Plattan Plus earphones offer equal parts style and substance for less than Apple's aftermarket earbuds, and we recommend them for casual listeners and fashionistas alike.

Urbanears Plattan (Olive)

 

The Urbanears Plattan headphones are inexpensive and come in a vast array of color options. They're also compact and stylish, and will work with music phones thanks to an integrated mic and call answer button.

The Plattan headphones aren't terribly comfortable and overall audio quality is muddy.

The Urbanears Plattan headphones are all about style, which unfortunately doesn't leave much room for great sound in this case. Beware of mushy bass, nasally mids, and an absence of clarity.

Urbanears Plattan Headset/On-Ear Headphones (Playback 29)

 

Not long ago I wrote a blog about a recent discovery of mine: the Urbanears Plattan headset/on-ear headphones, priced at $59.99. In my blog, I said the Plattans reminded of the first set of really good headphones I ever owned—the classic Sennheiser...

The Urbanears Plattan headphones sound good for their price and do a good job delivering an overall clear and non-muddy sound. The only music genre I believed these cannot handle very well is rock music. The Plattan cannot handle rock music very well...

Urbanears Plattan Headphones Review

 

Urbanears is a company known for highly fashionable, yet affordable headphones and earphones geared for a younger, more tech-fashion crowd. One look at their products and you can tell these guys have a design esthetic that exhibits clean, almost...

Powerful bass ; Extra AUX for sharing ; Build quality

Weak highs and muddy mids on some recordings ; Not comfortable on larger heads

Urbanears Plattan headphones review

 

Urbanears products are almost ridiculously minimalistic in their design, but they come across as extremely hip. Anyone who appreciates how the plain white Apple earplugs stand out in public knows exactly what I mean.

Light and comfortable to use ; Appealing, hip design ; Features standard to Urbanears (remote/mic, fabric cable, etc.)

A bit lacking on the high freqs because of the strong mids ; Can easily get dirty because of the matte plastic and fabric elements ; Not enough sound isolation

All in all, given the implications of every factor mentioned in this review, this pair of headphones are really for those people who want to make a visual statement (what I’d like to call “the fashionable DJ look”) while getting a decent and practical...

Urbanears Plattan headphone review

 

Those noble folk at Urbanears are trying to solve one of the image conscious urbanite's biggest problems – how to make your ears look sexy. Unable to tolerate the sight of fleshy flaps of sonic scooping gristle laying bare in the metropolitan commuter...

Great build and colours ; Great price ; Original touches

Might want other colours ; Fabric headband might wear ; Audio reflects price

The Urbanears instantly charm you with their fabric covered headband, folding ear-cups (for neat portability) and high-quality, colour coordinated ear cushions. The design offers less audio ‘leak’ than other similar on-ear designs, which has the added...

The Urbanears Plattan headphones are all about style, rather than producing great sound. Beware of their mushy bass, nasal mids and absence of clarity

Affordable ; Come in a vast array of colour options ; Compact and stylish ; Will work with music phones, thanks to an integrated mic and call-answer button

Not terribly comfortable ; Overall audio quality is muddy

Although Urbanears doesn't include a carrying case of any kind -- not really a surprise at this price -- the Plattan headphones are quite portable. The earcups measure just 64mm in diameter and fold in for easier transport. A single cloth cable...
