Headphones don’t need to just sound good; they need to look good as well. After all, this is something that you’re going to be strapping to your head. That’s probably why Urbanears has teamed up with Marc by Marc Jacobs for its latest product line.
The two companies have just debuted the Humlan and Kransen headphones in different colors — and textures.
Those include include Oil, Ocean and Berries. All three are inspired by nature, but these offer up some serious eye candy. Oil is a two-toned headphone set, while Ocean is a bright blue. The Berries version, of course, has a rich color, but promises deep, flavorful sound.
The Humlan is an over-ear model, with a washable headband and ear cushions. That’s huge! It also boasts 40mm drivers, a frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz, and a sensitivity rating of 100dB. Other handy features include the Zound Plug for music sharing and a microphone/remote for making and taking calls.
For something more compact, the Kransen is an in-ear headphone with a built-in microphone, a remote, the SnapConstruction feature, and the patent-pending CableLoop solution that allows you to secure the cord in place. Other features include 10mm drivers, a frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz, and a sensitivity of [email protected] = 100dB SPL.
Urbanears is selling Humlan and Kransen headphones now for $60 and $45, respectively.
