Sennheiser Urbanite: An on-ear headphone with a retro-hip design and "now" soundThe $200 Urbanite has an eye-catching look and plump bass geared toward younger listeners.
[MUSIC] 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. Thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
