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.


Plattan Safari Grunge Collection November 12 2014

Introducing the Urbanears Safari Grunge Collection – a special Fall 2014 line that’s all about urban edge, minus the black, leather and studs. Muted backdrops with splashes of contrasting colors add a twist to the classic animal print motifs, which include the Plattan Surplus Leo Edition, the Plattan Space Giraffe Edition and the Plattan Acid Zebra Edition.

THE PLATTAN ACID ZEBRA EDITION
Regal navy takes the backdrop on this classic motif, with drops of orange peppered throughout, adding a 21st century twist. Toss in a built-in microphone and remote, a fully collapsible structure and the ZoundPlug for instant music sharing, and you’ve got one groovy pair of headphones.

THE PLATTAN SPACE GIRAFFE EDITION
Taking an artsy spin on a classic form, the Space Giraffe print mixes ombre blues and purples with splashes of neon orange for a kaleidoscopic effect. What’s more, this ultra-wearable motif covers a headphone that’s perfect in its classic design, featuring a fully collapsible structure, a built-in mic and remote and the ZoundPlug for instant music sharing. Far out.

THE PLATTAN SURPLUS LEO EDITION
Surplus Leo adds a dash of inner city earthiness to the mix, resulting in a spin on a familiar style that’s perfect for everyday wear. In addition, this special edition comes with all the features you’ve come to expect from the Urbanears Plattan, like a fully collapsible structure, a built-in mic and remote and the ZoundPlug for instant music sharing. Rawr.
