Urbanears – Plattan ADV Wireless Bluetooth Headphones -, Loved them so much I repurchased

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

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.

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.

Comments from buyers

“Great purchase so far, Fantastic headphones, great alternative to more expensive brands, Best bluetooth headphones for price”

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.

I bought them as wanted the same earphones as my husband has, fed up wil him not being able to hear me i decided to join in. Used them in a long haul flight and they are fab.

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.

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.

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.

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.

My first one broke and i couldn’t figure out how to get my warranty on it so i bought new ones. They’re really good as long as the plastic part doesn’t break. My favourite is the tap function. Beware that sometimes it doesn’t link up properly. Might be my phones issue though.

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 far so good, i’ve had them for a day and they’re perfect.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

One Response to Urbanears – Plattan ADV Wireless Bluetooth Headphones -, Loved them so much I repurchased

  1. 2.0 out of 5 stars Fine until they snapped after 6 months. Now unusable. says:

    This review is from : Urbanears – Plattan ADV Wireless Bluetooth Headphones – Black

    I like the battery life and the appearance of these headphones. Sound quality is pretty decent and the bass comes through well. However, after 6 months of use they’re now entirely obsolete because one of the ears has snapped off (as has happened to so many other reviewers). It’s not something i can fix and still have full function from, so now i need to look to replace them. I thought i was a lucky one, but it only took half a year, almost to the day, for them to be unusable. I can’t wait to see them sit in landfill for hundreds of yearswhat’s more is i feel terrible for recommending them to a friend who had her pair for 3 months before both ears snapped off completely and they were unusable also. These headphones are too expensive to be so fragile, especially as they don’t come with a case to protect them.

  2. 1.0 out of 5 stars Bluetooth doesn't work. says:

    This review is from : Urbanears – Plattan ADV Wireless Bluetooth Headphones – Black

    I’m a fan of urban ears headphones, but unfortunately i have to give this a one star. The headphones feel very flimsy, plasticky and cheap, not at all up to the price. Also, i can’t get them to bluetooth sync with anything, meaning i can only use them with the plug in cord. That completely voids the whole reason i ordered them and paid so much for them. I would have returned them, but, by the time i got round to using them and discovered the problem, it was too late to send them back. It’s a pity, i saved up for a while to get these as i wanted a bluetooth set. I’ve used urban ears headphones before, corded, and they’ve been great, but these just don’t do the job. I should also mention that i have owned the same set before, purchased about three years ago. They appeared to be of better quality, but, although they would sync with some bluetooth devices, it was always a huge pain to sync them and it didn’t always work even then.

    • 1.0 out of 5 stars Utter junk says:
      Bad, muddy sound quality and when i use them on bluetooth the signal cuts out when i move more than 3 feet from the pc. I’ve got other bluetooth headphones that work fine at much longer distances, so these ones are just useless. They are honestly the worst bluetooth headphones i’ve ever used and if i’d paid full price for them i would feel seriously insulted.

    • 2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed. says:
      I’d hoped for better, especially after reading the good reviews on here. Hinged section seems flimsy and i doubt they will last a year, even with light use. The bt quickly drops when even a few metres from my phone. Sound is average but when you increase the volume it distorts making it unlistenable, which is a shame because they have a good volume range.

  10. 1.0 out of 5 stars Plastic breaks easily - product fault do not buy this model says:

    This review is from : Urbanears – Plattan ADV Wireless Bluetooth Headphones – Black

    The supports on the side are very weak. Both of mine have broken within a few months of use. I used the wired model with metal supports and it lasted over 2 years. I’d recommend them to anyone they’re great. But the plastic ones will not last and are therefore a great disappointment and poor design.
