Urbanears has recently announced the Plattan 2 headphone, an upgraded version of the classic model. The aim to ‘deliver a next-level experience in sound and ergonomics while staying true to the legacy of a headphone that has sold in the millions.’ On the New York subway, they are a not-so-close second behind Beats in terms of visibility. They’ve an understated yet eye-catching design, they are available in more colors than Benjamin Moore paint, they sound decent for $50 on-ear cans.



Urbanears Plattan 2 headphone Features:

The updated design features an improved frequency response and extra isolating ear cushions, clearer definition, and a 3D Hinge for a more customized fit. Those classic traits Axhede mentioned include a fabric-wrapped cable and a built-in mic and remote. The Plattan 2 headphones also retain the ZoundPlug, which enables a friend to plug in a pair of their own headphones so you can listen along together. If that friend is plugging in another pair of Plattan or Plattan 2 headphones, they can even be daisy-chained to enable more people to listen in.

Despite keeping the above features, the Plattan 2 are not just the same headphones with a new name. Urbanears says that the new model has an improved frequency response and clearer definition, thanks in part to ear cushions that make for better sound isolation. The updated model features a ‘3D hinge’ that the company says makes the headphones more flexible, with the result that finding the perfect fit should be much easier.
