Urbanears 04092052 On-Ear Headphones – Amethyst Purple, Brilliant

They are really good headphones. Good cheap wireless headphones, good sound quality and they don’t bleed too much. The only issue is my ears get really hot with the headphones after an hour or so of use and they hurt quite a bit. So i can’t wear them long periods of time. Which is why i’m only giving 3 stars.

Excellent productamazing soundamazing qualityeasy to usedurablesuperbe quality & pricei vividly recommend it.

Today is exactly one year since i bought the adv. I have a pixel 2, which dropped the jack, so i needed bt headphones. I’ve a fan of urbanears for years now and after looking around i ended up choosing adv. There was really nothing else matching the feature set at the price point. I want to address the comments about build quality. Urbanears in my experience have been like that since i have discovered them. The products look good, work great, but durability has always been a weak point. I have had a number of their product fail within one year, which sucks considering the price. However, i have had their support replace them every time with a brand new pair due to 1 year warranty. Back to the adv, i have had zero issues so far and i use them nearly every day.

Best bluetooth headphones for price

Great purchase so far

Fantastic headphones, great alternative to more expensive brands

Great sound good battery lifelove it comes with audio lead in case you need to plug in and save batterygood bass sound with out sounding pushed and over all range is goodblock most back ground noisevalue for money i would buy urbanears over any other brand.

For the price and features it is the best headphones hands down. The swipe function is so convenient for everyday use and for the gym. Also the aux socket allows you to share music with friends so what is there not to love.

I absolutely love these headphones. Comfortable, easily adjusted to your head, soft cushions for your ears, washable headband, really great sound, and cancels out a tremendous amount of noise. Excellent for noisy travelling (train, plane, etc). Also folds easily and doesn’t feel too fragile. Comes with nicely matching usb charging chord and a aux chord in case battery runs out or you just feel like going old-school chord. Uncomfortable to sleep with so uh, yeah, take ’em off before naptime, i guess. Also quite heavy to exercise in. But great for anything in-between.

I lost my first pair and loved them so much that i repurchased the same ones. Their appearance, battery life, functions, sound etc are all great.

I went for some cheaper headphones that had better reviews – really regretted the decision. These are a good subtle design – all matt (no tacky shiny bits) and very durable. My last pair i had for 4 years before they got a bit too dirty and cleaning them wasn’t an option any more ( had the white pair) however, they still worked finewouldn’t recommend the white if you’re a girl who wears makeup. Not too big on the overhead. Really do love these headphones.

Very good quality and i don’t know much about headphones. They are amazing and the covers clean perfectly in the washing machine. Even though i rated then five stars, there are some problems. 1- the bass isn’t very present2-the touchpad is very sensitive3-the seams on the actual muffs aren’t very strong4-it doesn’t play using the touchpad.

Not the best quality headphones i have ever owned. They’re not even the best available for their cheap price. For a product that was once advertised as £75, these feel really cheap and lightweight. The sound quality is very bassy and not clear. If you have no other choice and have to buy these, then go ahead, but if you want to shop around and get a far better product for less cost then shop elsewhere.

This is my second pair as the first pair were fantastic. Had the first pair 2 years and used them a lot. I made the mistake of leaving them to rattle around in my gym bag so although not indestructible they are great and nowhere near bose prices. I love them and will keep buying them.

If you have sight problems, hard to see the tiny slot where to plug in charger – they are also too subtle to find – in storage place.

I really like the swipe controls and the battery life is really good. I just with there was a way to tell how much charge is left in the battery before it starts beeping that the battery is low. Also, the headphones connect really quickly to my phone.

These headphones were bought as a gift and the recipient thoroughly enjoyed them. The delivery time was excellent; the packaging was sleek and satisfying to open; and the instructions inside were clear and concise. These headphones were easy to connect to the recipient’s phone and worked well immediately. I’m no audiophile but the sound quality was great and it played all the songs i listened to well, with no indication of bad quality or its relatively low price in the realm of high-end headphones. The headphones themselves look great, and unlike many other brands, they don’t ruin their appearance by stamping on a huge logo on the headphones, which was also a big plus. These headphones were also quite comfortable for both the recipient who has a relatively small head, and for me even though i have a relatively large head. Although, i didn’t wear them for long enough to notice any discomfort, but i imagine, as with most on-ear headphones, there will be some discomfort after extended periods of use. I cannot yet comment on the battery life or long-term durability of these headphones, but they seem to be of a high quality so far.

These headphones are reasonably comfortable and the sound is okay, but not great. The bluetooth keeps dropping connection though. My real problem with them is that the super sensitive touch controls on the earpiece seem to have a life of their own if i’m in the gym so that the track keeps changing or the volume suddenly goes down. If i do a handstand they go silent, either they can’t take being upside down or the side of my arm above my head is pressing the silent mode on the earpiece. So, okay headphones and nice looking but not for gym or running.

Great set of headphones, my niece and sister in law have both bought these and i was so impressed with them that i bought a pair too. Love the fact that they are wireless but also have a wire too.

So i’ve been trying these out for a couple of months at the gym. Positives:wirelessdoesn’t fall out of earscan go very loudfold up in my bagholds its charge for a long period of timenegatives:can loosen when running which gets irritatingthe touch pad is not very sensitive so it’s easier to change the song with my phonecan’t deal with being a few metres away from my phone so i still have to carry that with meisn’t the most attractivestruggling to find a pair of headphones that fit my small ears and small head.

Second pair – love the headphones for convenience (planes and travel esp) and for sound quality they retain great frequency response (less flat than my sennheiser momentums) but louder wand which is great for transport. If it helps, a little velcro tape under the headband can keep it well secured. The only design flaw is the hinge is plastic the folds the headphones (lose of a star) and this has lead to 2 pairs breaking. You have to be careful not to put pressure on them accidentally as they will snap at this weak point. A metal pivot would make so much sense.

The only bad thing i find with these headphones is the pressure on my ears, but as that’s expected with every pair of headphones i can’t really complain. Putting one speaker behind my ear seems to help fine, and there’s no harm in taking them off every so often. The sound quality is good as can be, i’m not really an expert. In terms of range the sound tends to crackle up when i go too far away behind walls, but it can go through to the 2nd floor from the 1st with no problem. They’re very sound proof, i basically can’t understand what people are saying if they talk to me. A good feature if you ask me. I bought mine for £45 cause the colour isn’t as popular probably. Tomato red is not as tomatoy as it is in the pictures but who cares anyway. I’d say they’re worth the £45 but the more expensive colours (sky blue and whatnot) are £70 and that’d be out of my price range but since the quality is good it really just depends on your budget.

My wife has the same one, after try hers i bought mine. They are light, smart and the sound is quite good. I use them every day and i had not got any issue.

Had them for about 6 months now and used them almost every single day. The sound quality is good, they cancel the noise pretty well and the battery life is excellent. I was a bit anxious of how durable they will be but they are really well made and had no issues so far.

I’ve been using these headphones multiple hours daily for several weeks now, and couldn’t be happier with them. The battery life is more than enough, i only really charge them once every 3 or 4 days, with probably 10-15 hours listening between charges. They’re very comfortable to wear, although i do find that i have to take them off after an hour or so of listening or i start getting earache. This is something i experience with all on-ear headphones though. I happened to have a pair of beats headphones (not mine) to compare these to. The sound quality of the more expensive beats is impressive, i found them to be more clear than the urbanears, and a bit more bassy too. Saying that, the urbanears are are of more than sufficient audio quality, although you are getting what you pay for. The touch controls on the urbanears are very convenient. I often find myself using them to skip and change the volume. Others have written that they often accidentally trigger them, but i have had no such problem.

It has great sound quality and great for noise cancelling. It is comfortable on the ears, if not a little bit tight. The cordless facility lets it down as the battery life is pretty poor. After a full charge, it lasted no more than 3 hours of play time. I have had these headphones for 2. 5 years now and the battery life kept reducing – now it does not work at all. I am grateful for the fact that it also came with a cord, otherwise this product would be useless and a complete, utter waste of money.

So happy with thesenot easily brokenbattery life is great, better battery life than my bluetooth speaker, probably double the lengthmy go-to, can’t attend gym without them nowso easy to change songs with the touch-activated controls on the right earphone.

  2. 5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product says:
    I bought mine about two or more years ago and have only just got a problrm with a snapped ring around one side of the headphone but this was easily fixed by some glue. Whilst the touch controls can be a little difficult at times i find them a lot easier than using buttons and the battery life is great, only having to charge then roughly once a week or longer. Overall a great product and would recommend to anyone for the price (though i did get them in another shop for £40.

    I am using this headphone for a long time now and it was great. The battery is still very good. And the sound quality is good for its price.

      • 2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap kids headphones says:
        Cheaply made- i tried to take a picture to show how plastic and childlike they look but my camera is so good it makes them look good too haha. The red is definitely not as shown in the picture, its more of a pink- not great and really adds to the childish look of these headphones. I’ve yet to test them properly but i can definitely see why people are having issues with the ear piece snapping off- the plastic is super cheap, i’ve had to handle them so carefully to avoid damage. Not worth the price at all- i only picked them because they weren’t as bulky as the ones i have at the moment. Would return but even that costs money these days.

    This review is from : Urbanears 04092052 On-Ear Headphones – Amethyst Purple

    I was really excited to get these headphones as i had used and loved my pair of urbanears normal platten headphones and decided to get a pair of these wireless ones. I was very happy with them at first, the sound quality was great and i experienced no troubles apart from the ear touchpads being a little difficult to use (but i was aware of this upon purchase) unfortunately after using them for two months the ears snapped of when i was lying down with them on. I was very disappointed as they were quite pricey for headphones that break so easily with so little effort. Therefore, i cannot recommend this product, particularly if you are are a regular headphone user.

    Cancel noise to a good degree (still safe when you go for a run, so you can actually hear cars behind you). Easy to change songs by using the touch functions.

      • 4.0 out of 5 stars Strongly recommended if you can nab them for anything under £50. says:
        Had a black pair for almost 3 years now and last year got an indigo pair too while it was on sale. Very happy with these headphones, especially for around £45 – the sound is good for everyday headphones. Bluetooth works very easily, battery has always been good and touch controls still work brilliantly with iphones. If i’m going away for a few days, i just bring the included 3. 5mm audio cable to use in case the battery runs out. The cable has lasted well, but as expected after 3 years the ear pads are frayed from use and i once had to superglue one of the magnets that holds the removable headband. I actually prefer these headphones to more expensive ones i’ve had (such as beats solo2 that snapped easily) because these are more reliable. The size adjustments at the hinge hold well and fit my big head (and can go even bigger) and look like they fit well for all sizes – something a lot of headphones seem to struggle with. Strongly recommended if you can nab them in your preferred colour for anything under £50.

      I found these uncomfortable over my ears. Other people may not have any problem with them. Ive moves on to in ear wireless ear phones which are better for me.

    Swiping to change songs can be a bit troublesome but other than that very good value and well worth a purchase.
