Urbanears is a collective out of Scandinavia, motivated by a common interest in global relationships and shared involvement in the relevance of the living brand. Urbanears promotes a deeper connection to color, form and people while providing the freedom to transcend individuality and unify the sound experience.
The concept Urbanears is spawned out of a number of ideas. Some that helped us form the project but just as many that came along the way. Primarily, there seemed to be no manufacturer of headphones out there that really shared our belief in what headphones are and how they are typically used. We wanted to produce headphones with a profound understanding of how they are utilized and why. We call this design and in our world design is the transformation of functionality to the human being.
Urbanears vision was to add a number of elements to the concept of performance. Beyond the obvious sound rendition we had a vision of making headphones that felt more like clothes than chromed plastics and felt good to wear in a public space. We design headphones with much respect to what they are expected to be, but with great attention to the details. An Urbanears headphone is always describable as a classic headphone, rather than a bold design statement redefining the product category.
