Urbanears Headphones

Stockholm-based Urbanears headphones do more than just listen. In a rainbow of flashy hues, each pair comes standard with a built-in microphone and remote compatible with most mobile devices: Nokia, BlackBerry, HTC and iPhones using a 3.5 mm socket. (Each pair comes with a default plug and added Nokia or neutral adaptors to ensure compatibility with your device.) A sleek design compliments Urbanears' sophisticated features and functionality. Each pair comes with a 47-inch fabric cord that includes a Zound Plug, a socket that connects a second set of headphones for dual listening. A unique hinge makes the headphones fully collapsible for convenient travel, or just storage inside the average backpack.

Orders are backed by a one-year replacement warranty.

Price: $60
