Vifa Copenhagen April 26 2016

COPENHAGEN

Copenhagen is the first wireless speaker from VIFA. Though the Danish company has over 80 years experience making loudspeaker components, they rebranded as a consumer audio company, with Copenhagen leading the way as their debut product—more will follow, with each earning the name of a different Nordic capital. Merging Bang & Olufsen's minimalism with Jambox's fun energy, the Copenhagen speaker is simply gorgeous, especially up close in person. Stripped of all but the essentials and wrapped in premium Kvadrat textiles, all has been whittled down to a few buttons (two of which are embroidered) and rear openings for plugs. Plus, it sounds as great as it looks, too.

MATERIALS

The Nordic design of Copenhagen is reflected in its shape and in the choice of materials. Contrasts interplay with each other; the warm, rough ‘look and feel’ of the textile against the smooth, matte polished aluminum frame. The discretely embossed logo and embroidered volume buttons complement the understated look of Copenhagen. 

Europe’s leading manufacturer of design textiles, Kvadrat, has produced the special-woven textile cover. Kvadrat’s sense of quality and the longevity of their textiles match the Vifa brand perfectly.

COLORS

To highlight your experience, Copenhagen comes in six selected colors. Each color has its own vibrant character. Energetic, elegant or understated.

Major II Bluetooth April 25 2016

Like their wired cousins, the Major II Bluetooth pack in 40mm drivers that Marshall says are “tuned for excellent bass response, smooth mids and sizzling highs.” A collapsible design makes them easy to toss into a backpack to take with you when you’re on the go.

As evidenced by the name, these headphones connect via Bluetooth and use aptX to offer CD-quality playback and minimal audio/video sync issues when watching video. If you have a high-res music player or would just rather plug in, the headphones also offer a 3.5 mm jack and a removable coiled cable featuring a built-in mic and remote. The 3.5mm jack can also be used to share music with someone else when listening wirelessly.

One advantage these headphones seem to have comes in the area of battery life. While many Bluetooth headphones can struggle to hit the 20-hour mark, Marshall says the Major II Bluetooth offers up to 30 hours of playback time on a single charge, more than enough to last through a week of moderate listening.

ABOUT MARSHALL HEADPHONES

Marshall is a true rock legend. That uniquely clear and expressive sound combined with a mythical stage presence has enraptured music fans around the world for five decades. We’re celebrating the brand’s rich heritage with commemorative products that live and breathe Marshall.

The legacy begins in a small drum shop in Hanwell in the 1960s, where Jim Marshall sought to give a bunch of then-local guitarists the sound they wanted – a sound that was harder, crunchier and more rich. The result was the JTM45, an amp that reverberated with a sound that was much heavier than anything ever heard before. In a twist of rock and roll fate – those guitarists, much like the Marshall name, would go on to revolutionize music foreve


Introducing Plattan ADV November 28 2014

A Classic Redefined for a New Generation

With the release of Plattan in 2009, Urbanears changed the way the world saw headphones. Elevating headphones from the realm of chromed plastics to a colorful fashion acces- sory paved the way for a new generation of electronics – a generation where form is just as important as function.

Urbanears is changing the game once again with a new release that takes a classic, rein- vents it and pumps it full of innovative features like a washable headband, 3D Hinge and an interchangeable cable.

Retaining Plattan’s original spirit of minimalism, the design of Plattan ADV is more modern, with a slimmer, cleaner profile. Plattan ADV features a hinge that facilitates adaption to the users’ ears and head. The headband is size adjustable as well, with a snap-in-place-construction to prevent it from slipping. Designed to be even lighter than the original Plattan, Plattan ADV is super comfort- able to wear even for hours on end.

Plattan ADV incorporates custom engineered 40mm neodymium speaker drivers with optimally shaped thin PEN membranes (19um) and lightweight voice coils (78mg) for maximum performance across the entire audio spectrum. If you’re a fan of real punchy bass, clean mid-range and detailed and extended highs you’re in for a treat – Plattan ADV provides a sound richer than your dirty grandpa.

The flexible hinge and soft ear cushions not only gives superb comfort but also an acoustically tight fit that translates to good sound isolation. You will disturb less and be less disturbed. The soft tight fit also helps to deliver a really deep bass, all the way down to 10Hz, with lots of power due to low acoustic leakage.

The excellent dynamics between the high and low frequencies creates a balanced, open and clear sound that improves the music listening experience weather you live for the emphatic beats in heavy metal or sail to the sounds of smooth jazz.
