Urbanears Plattan Headphones – Quilted : Best headphones I have ever had–

I am very happy with these headphones, one of my favourite things is that they are pretty nondescript so i’m not a walking advert, however i wouldn’t mind advertising these to be honest, i’ve recommended them to my friends. I haven’t had any problems with sound cutting out as some other reviewers commented on, it may happen after a time i suppose but so far the sound quality is fantastic. They felt a bit tight at first but that has got better as they’ve loosened up and i’ve got used to them. I wear glasses which is uncomfortable unless i raise the arms above the pads which i don’t mind doing but it’s something to keep in mind when choosing which type to get. The only grumble i have is that they’re described as indigo but i would call it green.

First saw this on car journey with friends. Friend or sister can plug her own, ordinary ear buds into the headphones, allowing both wearers to hear the music from eg one ipod without need for y-jack or having one earbud each. Pretty item, folds up as well. Aslo asts as remote microphone for phone. Have beeen using for children to play silent bop-it – great for parents’ nerves in flight lounges, planes.

Bought this product with the recommendation from a friend of a great pair of headphones and was not disappointed. The design is great; as a person who is on the move quite a lot they compact down really simply and into a shape that will protect the actual ear cover. The cord is fabricated and does not tangle compared to the ordinary wires, also does not look out of place and hangs nicely when loose. The headband is not hard plastic and so i could happily wear these for hours on end. The overall design and finish is superb- practical and stylishsound wise- i listen to a variety of genre’s of music and these headphones do each justice. Crisp and clear with a good bass line. Also sound cancelling for the listener and the passer-by (top volume maybe not so much)not as expensive as most headphones but certainly worth paying that little bit more compared to the cheaper brands.

Inspired by my son to get these. For those people who can’t get on with in ear headphones these are perfect. The sound quality is superior and i do not disturb fellow travellers. They fold up neatly for easy storage and i love the choice of colours. Only problem is my son has asked me not to sit next to him in public as not cool to have your mother wearing the same headphones.

Bought two pairs of these, one for my niece and one for me. Sound quality is good although if your traveling in an aeroplane you still get rather alot of background noise. Also, as they are ‘on ear’ headphones i found my ears began to hurt after an hour or so (and i don’t have ears like prince charles either). All in all a good set of cans for the price with good sound quality. I would recommend over ear headphones if you want to avoid earache.

I purchased these headphones for the second time last year after the first pair broke and got a refund earlier this year the second pair plattan of headphones i had bought broke too due to the connection being lost in one side of the headphones like the first pair after i had barely used them at all. I love the design of these headphones i think they are super fashionable but the quality seems to be compromised which is disappointing. Although i have seen a fair amount of reviews from people that rate them highly and have been great for them so maybe i was just unlucky , in terms of comfort i would say they are comfy up until about no longer than 2 hours maybe then they can start to hurt a bit but i would say thats the same for most headphones.

The thing i love most about these headphones primarily is the sound quality. Ok i’m a cheapskate and have only ever paid a poultry £30 at most for headphones. Believe me people the little bit extra is worth the investment, especially for these ones. If i was to rate these then i would start with the sound. I would have to say that these little beauties really shine. The bass is tight & well pronounced without fatiguing your eardrums. Mid range sits very well in the mix. Treble is bold but without the harshness of poorer quality products. The overall mix is high quality & very pleasant to listen to.

Really impressed with these headphones, they genuinely give a great sount, quite bassy, and tge y isolate outside sound really well. Though i like to hear some outside noise so when um travelling i know what’s going on around methe ability to plug in others headphones is nice, also the fabric covered wires i love. It makes them easier to wrap up and less likely to damage. I’ve only marked this down 1 star as i find them a bit tight, which can get uncomfortable after a few hours. Also i think there might me a loose wire around the jack on mine as the sound can dim if in a certain position, but i’ll keep an eye on thatbtw i got these just after trying out the beats ones, and honestly they aren’t a whole lit better, super bassy though.

Second pair of these headphones i’ve bought, one for home and one for the office. Great sound (i’m no audiophile, but its certainly a decent sound for the price) nice build quality, the removable (and side-swappable) 3. 5′ cable is really good quality, and the fact that it folds up means it can take up less space in a bag, and also survive a bit betteralso, a bonus is that you can ‘daisy chain’ another pair of headphones into the spare 3. 5′ jack female port if you aren’t using it. You can plug in whichever side you want, and daisy chain into the other. Great for traveling couples. Being able to swap the input 3. 5 is great if you are using these at a computer as you don’t want the cable dangling over your mouse hand.

As i stupidly left my last pair on an aeroplane (thanks united for failing to recover them) i replaced them the minute i retured as i was lost without them. Cannot recommend them highly enough:great sound, comfortable and stylish, i have started a fad amongst my friends all of which now have thembut be aware if you are using them with any new nokia (n8 for example) you will need an adapter (free from urbanears)as in their wisdom nokia have reversed the order of their trrs config.

No microphone so you can’t use as phone headphones and shockingly no volume control on the cord. I’ve lost them, which is a shame, but will look to buy a different pair next for this reason.

I purchased these headphones a couple of years ago, and they have done well. The right ear recently broke (my own fault, went out running in them and it started to rain, and we all know rain + electronics = not good). As a student £40 was all i could really afford for headphones, and the quality was great for listening to music and just using around home blocking out small amounts of background use. However, if you intend to use them in busy public places they won’t block out the background noise unless you have them very loud and then you get noise leakage. My only other fault is that they are small, and will start to give you headache if you’re wearing them for hours on end (and i have a fairly small head). Other than that, for the price you’re paying you can’t complain, and i would definitely considering repurchasing these headphones.

The best thing about these is the single wire attached to the left phone only- i can’t stand wires getting in the way when i run. They are super comfy with soft ear covers and a lovely head part which sits nice and snug on your head- you forget you are wearing them. The sound is good- i find it clear, smooth with good bass- the added extra is that the left phone has an extra socket for someone else to plug in their phones so you can say ‘listen to this’. And they can just plug in and listen. They also look fab in my fave color purple- so what’s not to love really?. Oh yes and a price which far surpassed the cost of gimmicky branded phones-.

The sound quality is good and i like the in built in splitter. However the fabric on the head band picks up dirt really easily and they are very uncomfortable on my ears. The jack cable is also a little short for desktop applications.

My main concern when buying headphones is sound leakage. I tend to use public transport a lot so i don’t want others to be disturbed by my music. You can spend £200 on a pair of ‘beats by dr dre’ but everyone has to listen to your music because they leak so much dam sound. As soon as they are on your head your music is loud and clear, and everyone around can’t hear a thing, even when they’re stood right next to you. The cloth cable is also extremely useful, these headphones never get tangled, so you can spend more time listening to music then untangling the cable. Also they have a microphone and controller on the cable so it’ll work on your phone to pause/play music and answer phone calls. It’s a little unfortunate that it doesn’t have volume control and song changer, but what can you do. But definitely recommend these.

Would recommend highlygood quality build and sound. Had these for years until i left them in a crappy hotel in france. But best investment i have had. Lasted so long being chucked around by a teenager. Only thing is the top band is only plastic or something (inside for the rigidity) and will get slightly dented on the edges if you have it in your bag with heavy textbooks and throw the bag around. But still wearable just a little loss in aesthetics.

I bought these headphones over three years ago and use them frequently, no signs of wear and tear, great sound quality.

I love these headphones, so much. In terms of comfort, great too. I can remember seeing negative reviews on this aspect and they’re not tight at all. The headphones are adjustable so it seems like a bizarre complaint to me. I’ve even accidentally fell asleep in these things, so they’re definitely comfortable. I love the simple design and they look just as good as they do in the picture. I got true white and they’re bright and matt, just what i wanted.

Considering the price range of these headphones, they are excellent. Please don’t spend over £100 on beats headphones when these are just as good, and look better. You can choose from lots of colours which i love and the sound quality is great. These headphones are superb for blocking out sounds around you and really focuses on the music. Very impressed, this pair is the second i have bought – and is a gift for a family member.

I was not sure wether to get these headphones when looking as there were some poor reviews on amazon but i really liked the blue colour i tried them at tesco,they were a really good fit & sounded great i would love the bose ones but could not justify the price so i got these from amazon. Just used them on hols for a week on the plane they were great,fit snug, sounded good used all week by the pool looked good too i cannot fault them had no problems at all + on the left ear cone you can plug another set of headphones in so when watching the movie on my ipad on the plane we only needed one plug into pad my wife just pluged into my left cone less wire tangle really good headphones give them a try.

These are very good headphones. Keep out external sound but also keep your sound in. Perfect so people don’t stare at you on the train into work. Also have a microphone for conference calls. Very high quality for the price. The others got a bit dirty & i didn’t think they looked professional for work any more, so now they’re my decorating headphones.

Going for my second set, only because i lost the first pair (and subsequently found again). Short and simple addressing the points made before –i wear glasses and after an extended time of 2-3 hours i find they can get a little uncomfortable, but i honestly don’t find it a big issue. To me they are snug and secure on my head. – i’m no sound engineer, but i find the sound quality decent at this price point, do the job perfectly well for me listening a wide variety of genres of music as well as for listening to podcasts/audio books. I don’t find i have major issues with the bass, and there are evidently fixes to any minor issues if you read the previous reviews. – in terms of taking calls i found the call quality good on my iphone, with the in line remote operating well and otherwise the call is hands free, as in you don’t need to move the speaker to your mouth or anything like that. – the remote is simple but works well. – the looks are, as said previously, simple, slightly retro, with bright colours and with a nice feel and sturdy build. My first pair are battered and scratched but only because i am very tough on my things.They are otherwise functioning and usable without issue.

I love love love these headphones. So much so that i have bought them again when my first pair got broken. If you are like me and have a little head then these guys are fab. I know the trend is to have massive ones, make a statement, but thanks to all the gorgeous colours you can get in these trust me it’ll make enough of a statement (if you’re that way inclined). I have had lots of people stopping me on my various commutes and asking me where i got them. The actual pads on the ear pieces are compfy as i have various piercings on both my ears and they do not impeed on these at all. The sound is great for the price the only downside is if you do have them very very loud other people can hear them but alas they’re not noise cancelling headphones, and medium volume is enough for me anyway. (works a treat at booking out the sounds of your fellow commuters). They are a great device and so easily packed away in your bag.

The box containing the headphones looked like it had come off the shelf as it was scratched, dusty and the security tabs were open, not ideal as it’s a gift. However the contents looked new and on testing, the sound quality, although not top-end, is a huge improvement on what my daughter is currently listening too. Plus she’ll love the colour.

Decent headphones that are not too expensive. Unfortunately, i am the type to get headaches from wearing headphones and these do not prevent that. They are not the most comfortable to wear. However, the sound quality is decent when used as a casually.

I’ve now owned 4 pairs of urbanears headphones, and every single one has developed a connection fault at the headphone jack, meaning sound only comes through one ear of the headphones. None of the 4 pairs i’ve owned have lasted more than 8 months. This is definitely the last time i buy a pair of these.

Great headphones – good quality sound and comfy fit. I like the fact that you can swap the side of the cable. And the colour is stunning (i bought mulberry). I wish it had come with a pouch of some kind though.

They sound great and are really comfortable. I bought them to wear while flying and i am confident they will block out background noise.

I’m totally blown away by the bang for the buck you get with those. I picked them up in town where they were on sale. I won’t mention the price, all i can say it was ridiculous (in the positive sense). Clearly, they were clearing their shelves. Sound:+ overall sound+ balance+ pretty damn good noise insulation for on-ears- bit bright & a little too much bass, lacking in the midssound verdict:there are better alternatives out there if you are really into guitar solos (like myself but the urban ears are my second pair). Bear in mind i really liked the sound so this is very much nitpicking and i’m spoiled by my main headphones the akg k240 mkii which are really neutral and have very detailed mids, but were also also 4x the price of these when i bought them. Built quality & comfort:+ feel adequately sturdy+ braided cable+ very comfortable+ good adjustability- all plastic (but hey so are beats and they are a lot more expensive)- no cable lockfeatures:+ replaceable cable+ headphone jacks on both sides+ remote on cable+ foldable+ simple but cool designtl;drgood sound for the money but they ultimately follow the trend of boosted bass and highs and turned down mids. But that’s ok for headphones that are designed to be your best companion on the go. They are very comfortable and well built.
