Sennheiser Urbanite: An on-ear headphone with a retro-hip design and "now" sound
I'm David Carnoy, and this is the Sennheiser Urbanite.
This is an on-ear model.
It is a $200 on-ear model.
And it's kind of Sennheiser's venturing into Beats territory with a little bit hipper headphone.
This does come in a lot of different colors.
And it's a comfortable on your head phone that also has an in line remote and microphone for making cell phone calls.
And all in all I really do like the head phone.
That said, there is an Urbanite XL model which is bigger headphone, over the ear headphone.
That does sound a bit better.
There's more clarity.
A little bit more open sound.
One thing about the XL model however is that it does accentuates the flaws in your music a little bit more if you don't have really well recorded tracks.
And MP3s, they're not that great.
This model might be a little bit better for that because it smooths things out a little bit more.
So there you have it.
The Sennheiser Urbanite.
I'm David Carnaway.
