Urbanears Plattan Headphones

Urbanears is a Swedish company that is known for their array of color options and modern simplistic design. With over 15 different color choices, there is a headphone for every person out there. With an on-ear design, the Plattan are Urbanears most popular headphones.

The design of the Plattan is simple and sleek. It allows the user to express themselves through a color choice. The headphones are equipped with a built in microphone and a remote in the cord. They feature a durable fabric cord that limits tangles. Urbanears also gave the Plattan a unique feature, called the Zound Plug, which allows for another person to plug their headphones into the Platten and share your music. I have yet to see this feature on any other headphone and think it separates the Plattan from other competition. The casual listener of hip-hop, techno, and so forth will be satisfied with the overall sound quality. With such a low price tag, one should not expect the best sound quality. Like with most on–ear headphones, comfort seems to be the main drawback, and the Plattan's are no exception. This is due to the sleek design and minimal ear padding. Besides this design flaw, the UrbanEar Plattan Headphones are a great options for those looking for a low cost and good sounding headphones in a wide array of color choices.
