Medis, Tanto & Plattan Headphones by Urbanears

Scandinavian design collective, Urbanears has launched a series of headphones with three unique models, Plattan, Tanto and Medis, each available in 14 color varieties. Like many successful street brands given the no-logo-all-color-garments a face, Urbanears is set to make a statement in audio fashion wear.

Plattan is designed to be the perfect classic headphone, utilizing innovative functions and performance with current technology. It’s a full size headphone allowing for rich, secluded sound. The entire unit folds down to the size of a fist for maximum mobility, best of all, Plattan also comes with a “zound plug” which is actually not a plug, but rather a socket that allows your friend to plug into your earcap and listen to the same thing you are listening to.

Tanto is designed for maximum mobility without the compromise of performance, a tribute to the ‘80’s revolution in mobile music.

Medis has a sleek and minimal design and the functionality of its larger siblings but the obvious benefits of in-ear. The revolution, however, is the EarClick patent which anchors the ear-piece securely in place with perfect comfort and lets it stay in place. EarClick is the result of years of development and an ergonomic revolution of in-ear headphones. The construction is based on securing the position in the outer ear at two opposing points.

Each product comes equipped two extra cable extensions. The cable itself is made from fabric, rather that the usual plastic casing and fixed to the cable is a microphone and remote compatible with most devices such as Nokia, Blackberry, HTC and the iPhone.
