Urbanista Boston Wireless Water Resistant In-Ear Headphones – Sunset Boulevard : Almost great

Bought this as a gift for my gym bunny daughter because i was so impressed with mine.

So far very impressed apart from a lack of range. They are comfortable (perfect for me though im a fella i have small ear canals and cannot wear in-ear phones) they last a long time and have good sound quality. The battery life display on my phone is also handy. Minus side: my phone in the kitchen and me in the front room (20ft max, doors open) and it cuts out. May be better in an open gym environment i will have to see. Otherwise great for the money recommended.

Easily the most comfortable headphones of this type i’ve ever tried. And great sound quality – with volume that allows you to hear even when you’re really running. Eventually, i’m going to buy another pair. First i have to get over the fact that they only lasted 4 months. The clip that holds the battery steady on your shirt broke after 3months. Then the cable broke just near the battery section a month later because the battery had hobbled about. Shame – think they have a world beating design here that with a little love and attention would really take off.

They have great bass and also when using these i hear some notes and bits of production i have not heard before with previous headphones. Downside – when connecting to either my sony z3 or my ipod touch i keep these in my front trouser pocket and whenever my arm move over my pocket (with general walking movements) the sound cuts out. Also as the receiver hands behind your neck – when ever i turn my head to look for traffic the sound again cuts out. I tried moving the sending device in to my jacket pocket which is slightly higher up but also on the front but still the connection was not that great. Might be better when in the gym when wearing lighter clothing – but have not tested this yet. Will possibly be returning these to where i purchased from (not amazon).

These were a gift for my sister in law and she loves them.

They stay put while running and the sound is great.

But ( and it’s a big “but”) they have lasted only 9 months. The controls have stopped working and the battery will not re-charge. Such a shame- these are a great design but badly let down by the build quality. Take note of all the reviews on here that talk about how long they last before dying.

Fits very well but the device keeps losing its connection to my smartphone while working out / running. To increase the performance, keep your audio device on the same side of the body/arm as the receiver on the earplugs. Using iphone 6s with belkin storage plus armband.

Excellent sound, battery life and they stay in your lugs.

Excellent sound and don’t fall out when running.

Excellent product, excellent company and fantastic customer service – would thoroughly recommend this product and this company.

Great quality sound for the price and much better than my other bluetooth headphones.

  1. 2.0 out of 5 stars Interference leads to poor sound quality says:
    Sound is great and the headphones are comfortable – i haven’t experienced the cheap build quality that others have stated on the website, but i am riddled with bad interference. I use this one my commute into london, and as soon as there is a lot of people around the sound quality drops and there is a ton of interference. I bought these at the airport as i forgot my mpow ones – mpow are cheaper and far more reliable; although not as loud. A poor product in a saturated market.

    Sound quality is appalling for the price. I personally found them very uncomfortable after 30 mins or so. I ended up buying a cheaper pair of headphones and much prefer them.

    The headphones fit well and the sound is ok and they are relatively cheap. However that is where any good news stops. My first set worked once on a full charge and then would not turn on or charge. The replacement set worked for around 3 months however never managed 6 hours battery life whilst on in that time. They have now stopped working just like the first set and won’t charge or turn on. Urbanista’s customer serine isn’t just bad it is totally non existent. I would categorically say this is the worst set of headphones from the worst company i have ever bought.

    This keeps just disconnecting from my phone. I’ve tried repairing it a few times and still happens. And there is no issue with my phone, as my other headset works perfectly well.

    Delivery 1: 9 october 2018 stopped working 13. The button for turning on and of stopped responding so now it is unusable. I have 2 other of the same brand that have served me for much longer so this product must have been defect.

    Sound quality and comfort good, but i’ve had two pairs (one bought, one sent as a replacement) and neither of them lasted more than a couple of weeks. Definitely not not sweat proof, would not recommend for sports use. Would not recommend at all in fact.

    This review is from : Urbanista Boston Wireless Water Resistant In-Ear Headphones – Sunset Boulevard

    This is the 2nd pair of urbanista wireless headphones i have had in the last 6 months and they have broken again. The replacement headphones only lasted 6 weeks which is unacceptable. I would like to return the goods again to the seller and request my money back but this is not an option as i was only given 4 weeks to return from delivery. I would not recommend these headphones, good sound but poor electronics and highly likely to break.

    Bought my first pair, generally they’re ok. They work well, very few fall-outs, they fit very well, but in my opinion, they are too loud.

    • 1.0 out of 5 stars Seventh pair have just died says:
      I have had seven pairs of these headphones now. The longest a pair has lasted has been 7 weeks. The quickest they’ve failed is after 2 days. Same problem – randomly turning on and off then skipping tracks, the loud explosion of sound just before the whole unit fails. I’ve found if i keep charging them then they sometimes return to a half life ( no volume control or track selection) but then this will only last for a few days. I complained to urbanista who sent me replacements for two of the pairs but even these have failed. I got some more from amazon and these were the ones that lasted for half a run. The shame of it is that these are the most comfortable earphones i’ve owned and never fall out. Design great – manufacture rubbish.

  17. 1.0 out of 5 stars 3rd time unlucky-and no return? says:

    This review is from : Urbanista Boston Wireless Water Resistant In-Ear Headphones – Sunset Boulevard

    I loved my first pair-which i got from a shop and managed to lose after a few months- so much i bought a second pair: broke (only one ear working) in a little more than a month, i returned to the shop. As design and practicity is actually great i insisted on buying another pair from amazon thinking worst case the return would be smoother but unfortunately being past the 30 days period i seem not to be able to send it back, real shame.

    This review is from : Urbanista Boston Wireless Water Resistant In-Ear Headphones – Sunset Boulevard

    Bluetooth is not great as it can be intermittent but generally ok. Battery life is only a few hours. The annoying thing is pairing it with more than one device is problematic and won’t pair at all with a mac.

    • 1.0 out of 5 stars Worst earphones ever! says:
      I did not buy them in amazon but in the airport, however i think it is worth writting a review for the worst earphones i have ever had,1. The loose connection quite often and it is really annoying2. Today was the 5th day since i bought them and suddenly while seating in the tube listening to spotify online via bluetooth i heard like an “explosion”, on the right ear, and the right earphone is not working anymore. In addition to that the “explosion” was quite painfulhonestly 5days?. The iphone basic earphones have lasted me longer than a year allways using them daily.

    Found them great, no connections issues others talk about. Used running for over a year and in rain. Only issue is the charging slot which is in the middle at the back which can hang down and be very annoying.

        Volume down button never worked on the device. The range is pretty poor (it crackles if my phone is in my pocket) and the right headphone does within 4 minutes months.
