Satisfy Your Inner Hipster with the Urbanears Plattan Headphones [Unboxing,Review]

In a day and age when every pair of headphones looks just as utilitarian as every other, I was surprised when I ran past the Urbanears booth at CES 2011 and was stopped by what I saw: understated; beautifully crafted; no-design-detail-missed; headphones. Surely they didn’t have the audacity to sound good too…

I’ve been reviewing the Urbanears Plattan headphones for 4-5 weeks now. Why test them for so long? I was positive the spectacular design I was seeing was a cover for the tepid audio quality they must produce. There was just no way they were going too look as good as they do and sound great too. So I decided to take the Plattan’s on a journey through various iTunes playlists and really vet them before laying down my judgement.

Well the journey is complete, friends. Judgement is at hand. Check the video for my full review.

    Daisy chaining head phones does sound like a good idea, but I don’t think it will work since the headphones will all be powered off the audio out jack. With two or more listeners the sound will be much weaker… I think. Right?

    I’m sorry but I evicted my inner hipster due to its lack of originality, taste and the fact he just laid around all day and wouldn’t get a job . I feel so much better now

    I do not know exactly these headphones by Urban Outfitters but I tried some and they ALL sounded awful. Especially for the price.

    With a pair of those will not make you look cool but look like an idiot who puts style over quality.

    what kind of music were you listening to paul?

    They’re not made by Urban Outfitters. It’s a Swedish company that broke off from WESC.
