If you thought the Momentum was the last you saw (and heard) of Sennheiser’s stylish soundgear, you seriously need to meet the new Urbanite.

Designed for the well, urbanite, Urbanite is perfect for the modern city dweller who loves his tunes bassy, but is discerning enough to desire quality too. Who says you can’t have your bass and appreciate the detail too?

But enough of that, on to the main event - the on-ear Urbanite and over-ear Urbanite XL.

Loaded with sound

Built to deliver big bass beats, you’d expect to have to compromise on clarity. But not with the Urbanite line. You get equal detail across all frequencies, unmuffled by the bass thanks to Sennheiser’s audio expertise. While both headphone styles use the same drivers, their earcups will make a difference in the way they sound thanks to passive noise cancellation.

Made with mobile users in mind, both the Urbanite (S$269) and Urbanite XL (S$339) come with a detachable cable featuring the all-important remote control and microphone to cater specifically to both iOS and Android users. 

Oozing with style that lasts

With looks like that, the Urbanite line wasn’t made to be stashed away in your bag. Aluminium and fabric styling make them as pleasing to the eyes as they are to your ears. The padded headband is even supple enough to be twisted without cracking under the pressure. Trust us, we tried. Talk about enduring style.

And when you want to tuck them away, they fold into themselves for convenience and portability, hitting all the right notes for the perfect pair of travel headphones. Or really, everyday portable headphones that don't stinge on sound or style.

Watch out for the incoming social media campaign featuring Sup Clothing, a local indie fashion company to put Sennheiser’s stamp on sound street style. If you're all about the bass (and treble), you'll definitely want to stand the chance to win complete outfits and Urbanite headphones ranging from S$500 to S$700.
