These headphones have great sound for their relatively low price tag. They also look good, and the gesture control is fun to use. Battery life is good, lasting 3-5 days with solid use. You can also listen to them through an aux cable, if this is your preference. If being used wirelessly, the fact a friend can plug their headphones into the inbuilt 3. 5mm socket and share your music is a great idea. However, i have found a few negatives with this headphones. The hinges on the headphones are incredibly weak. If not taken care of, it snaps and renders the headphones useless (a friend’s pair did this after less than 6 month’s use).
I would have rated these 5 stars if it weren’t for the hinges. They look great, they’re comfortable, the sound is good and i love that you can swipe to move on to the next track rather than fiddle around trying to find the right button. However, the hinge snapped after just a week on my first pair. Urbanears agreed to send me a replacement, which lasted for about a year and a half before the hinge broke again. I asked cs and supposedly the hinge is better on their plattan 2 but there’s no wireless version yet and i’m not sure i’d risk it.
No annoying wire when weight training or exercising.
Got these for my son to use with his kindle. Connection was easy and perfect not having a wire he can pull on. Able to connect to my iphone and use it myself when he doesn’t need it. Can be used to receive calls as well with no issue. Very good alternative to the more expensive versions, especially for the requirements as specified. The sound might not be top quality, but i am no expert sound engineer and for me it is more than suitable and does not spoil a song or movie.
Urbanears – Plattan ADV Wireless Bluetooth Headphones – Dark Grey : Very good for working out as they are very firm around the head, without being uncomfortable. Volume is good as previous headphones i’ve owned weren’t great on this front. Obviously they don’t match up to the more expensive headphones with regards sound quality but at the price i feel they are excellent.
Comfortable and good sound quality.
So happy with the first pair i have ordered 2nd pair for my wife.
Bought these for the wife so she could watch movies or listen to music whilst travelling on a planegreat pair of headphones which are nice and comfortable on the head and ears.
I dont even have to access my phone for anything. Amazing buy, totally worth its money.
Actually love these – but does not seem like they will last past a year. 6months in they start to be visibly worn and slightly loosing parts.
