My latest obsession is not a trend or a wardrobe staple. It’s headphones.
Urbanears to be specific.
I wanted something different, something very me, you know? Headphones that spoke Kelley, screamed style and fun and modern and fresh!
So I began my headphones hunt. I’d found Urbanears earlier in the year and they looked to be the answer. Around Black Friday, I happened by Urbanears’ site and, to my delight, they had a sale Cyber Monday! Thank the heavens! Initially apprehensive to shop for a decent pair of phones online from a Sweden-based brand that I had never listened through or heard a personal review about, I took the leap. I shopped for the best style for DJing and the best deal. Then I was sure it was meant to me when I spotted the Zinken model[shown above] in my runner up favorite color[after gray, of course]: teal. I happily checked out and waited…
And waited …
And waited. ..
I knew it’d be awhile until my head speakers arrived, but it took almost two months. Thank goodness they were just for me and not a gift! But they were so worth the wait! They block out so much background noise. They’re lightweight and comfortable and do what headphones do. Plus the color is awesome, the band adjusts to my ever-growing fro, and they just look too cool! The total package. I fell in love immediately. But as my love affair continued and got real deep, I received an extremely thoughtful surprise from Urbanears: a free pair of their latest Humlan model headphones! It’s like they knew I had bitched about the long journey my first phones took to arrive, so they sent the perfect smaller pair in a creamy dreamy peach[shown below]. Same great sound quality and aesthetically pleasing design, compatible with my tragus piercing- plus the fabric headband and ear cushions can be removed and washed. Such a cool feature. And the free part definitely helped. They’re my new travel buddies, too 🙂
Long story short, Urbanears has a new lifelong customer with me! From a real person giving an honest review, try them out if you’re looking for a Beats alternative, want to save money on quality or just add some dope headphones to your collection. You’ll fall in love!
