Let your ears be loved: Sennheiser launches URBANITE headphones
Berlin, September 4, 2014 – Let your ears be loved: Sennheiser’s new URBANITE headphones are the new sound of urban style, bringing the bass for an intense club experience on the move. The audio specialist’s new mobile headphone range – including the on-ear URBANITE and over-ear URBANITE XL – delivers massive bass but with Sennheiser’s uncompromising audio expertise ensuring excellent clarity throughout the entire frequency range.
“Sennheiser URBANITE headphones are for the generation of Millennials who know more and demand more. They love their tunes heavy and love to look good, but are smart consumers who won´t compromise on quality. They want bass but want it done right. The Sennheiser URBANITE is answering these demands,” said Tim Voelker, Director Sales & Marketing Consumer, Sennheiser Communications A/S. “We’re bringing something fresh and new that will finally meet the expectations of this tough audience, and will be building the buzz for the URBANITE range through an exciting social media campaign this autumn under the headline ‘Let your ears be loved’.”
“With the Sennheiser URBANITE series we´ve created a range of headphones that are incredibly robust, using durable high quality materials and metal parts that – alongside the sound – set them apart from other fashionable headphones. With a unique folding mechanism that makes them easily portable, the Sennheiser URBANITE headphones are truly ready for life on the streets,” said Dr. Christian Ern, Director Product Management Consumer, Sennheiser Communications A/S.
The URBANITE range is designed for staying connected on the move, with integrated in line remote control and microphone for taking calls and controlling music on smartphones and tablets, with dedicated versions for either Apple iOS devices, or for Windows or Android-driven devices, such as Samsung Galaxy models.
A range of color choices includes black and denim across all models (both Apple and Samsung), with the iOS URBANITE additionally available in sand, nation and plum and iOS URBANITE XL also available in sand, nation and olive. The stainless-steel hinges add a striking touch of rugged urban style to cool design touches like the color-coordinated fabric-wrapped headband. However, the use of metal – on the premium hinge mechanism and the tough aluminum sliders – ensures these headphones are also styled to last.
The durable sliders and hinges also work with the super soft ear pads to ensure that the listener is insulated from external noise, ensuring great comfort for even long periods of listening enjoyment. And with its larger ear-pads, the Sennheiser URBANITE XL offers even greater levels of comfort.
For extra peace of mind all URBANITE headphones are supplied with a soft pouch for safe storage, and also come with a 2-year international warranty. Urbanite is available now at select retailers; URBANITE XL will be available in Q4.
