Urbanears Zinken Review


The Urbanears Zinken is both gorgeous and purposeful. The maker addressed most of the caveats that users faced when using a headphone; from the build quality down to the versatility that the TurnCable brings to the table.

Urbanears Zinken (Petrol) Headphone Review


When I ask most audiophiles to name their most desired set of headphones, the pervading choice is almost always Beats By Dre. Forget the fact that the company makes over a dozen different types of cans. [...]

Urbanears Zinken review


Plattan and Bagis, two of the more popular lines of headphones from Sweden-based Urbanears, have gone up rapidly in popularity in just a couple of years. But not being one to sit on its laurels, Urbanears has now come out with the Zinken, its new line...

Simple yet elegant design ; Very functional, has a remote mic and can work on both a 3.5mm jack and 1/4 inch jack ; Tough and durable ; Sound quality is top notch ; Comfortable and ergonomic

The max volume is a bit lower when used on a mobile device

We started the review with a question about the worth of the Zinken: Does it justify its asking price of Php 7,950? A resounding yes! It’s comfortable to use, sounds great and has a very aesthetically pleasing and functional design. I dare say this is...

Urbanears Zinken review


Fun, vibrant design at the cost of questionable sound

Fun design ; Handy music-sharing feature

No volume controls ; Subpar sound performance

Aside from the iconic design and appealing splash of color, there's not much else saving these on-ear headphones from being a poor value overall.

Urbanears Zinken review


The Urbanears Zinken headphones bring DJ-style swiveling earcups to the party, along with a dual-duty TurnCable with both 3.5mm and 6.3mm connectors

Comfy, foldable design ; Great audio ; Switchable cable for 6.3mm inp


At £120, the Urbanears Zinken are a fair bit more expensive than the Plattan (£50) but then they do offer some juicy extras in the form of comfort and that handy dual-purpose cable.

Magically amazing


I use these every day, commuting to and from work and listening to music & movies at home and while I\'m on the road. They\'re super durable, very comfortable, the sound is rich and they fold in on themselves making them easy to stash in a bag.
