These Urbanite Sennheiser’s are designed for the active person who wants great sound with an attractive design. A modern age fashion statement, these headphones are widely available in a range of colors with coordinated fabric stitched over the headband. You can find these headphones in black, sand, denim, plum and even red blue and white.


The headband is cushioned, so it is very comfortable when worn. The headphone ear cans also slide both up and down, so they adjust to your requirements. The cans also have state of the art ear pads that are made from microfiber material, so you can position them over the ears without worry of fatigue.


When the headphones are in use, they do not feel cumbersome or heavy. Only when you lean back can you feel them sliding off. If you have a slightly larger head then you most certainly will feel the top of the headband, but this is in no way annoying or oppressive.

Storage & Portability

The Urbanite headphones utilize metal hinges to make these headphones foldable for ease of storage. The supplied pouch keeps the headphones free from dust and grime, and the cord to these headphones has a lock twist mechanism which keeps it fully secured to the headphones themselves.

Sound Performance

The Sennheiser Urbanite headphones have very impressive specifications. They have a frequency of 16-22000 Hz with a total impedance of only 18 Ohms. This allows the headphones to deliver a bass without any distortion while also simultaneously matching the crisp and clear treble notes.

The Sennheiser Urbanite headphones produce high end notes that can be clearly heard from the low end. This makes these headphones great for those who love bass and the nightclub music scene, making them ideal for fans of Kaskade, Daft Punk, Deadmau5 and more.

So how do these headphones handle Jazz, classical and rock and roll? The bass lines are heard much more clearly, however sometimes the bass seemed far too punchy for the songs in question. These headphones aren’t really engineered toward the lower end of the audio scale.
