Sennheiser introduced a new wireless version of its URBANITE headphone range at CES. The new versions add Bluetooth and NFC to the winning URBANITE formula of cool urban style and uncompromising sound, with massive bass and crystal clear trebles.
The URBANITE XL WIRELESS deploys the latest cutting-edge wireless technologies for great sound and the ultimate ease of use. The latest apt-X codec is used to deliver clear, CD-quality sound. The set up is effortless thanks to NFC, which allows easy Bluetooth paring to NFC-compatible devices or by bringing the headset into close proximity. Use of the latest Bluetooth 4.0 standard enables multi-connectivity – pairing with up to eight different devices as well as simultaneous connections to two devices, which make it possible to link the URBANITE XL WIRELESS to, for example, a smartphone and a computer at the same time.
The Sennheiser URBANITE XL WIRELESS also has great durability. They can deliver an impressive 25 hours of playback, and are constructed with durable materials including strong metal components. The clever collapsible design makes it easy to fold and store it in the supplied soft pouch.
It also includes an intuitive, state-of-the-art touch control panel on the right ear cup that makes it possible to adjust the volume and skip to the next track by sliding a finger across the panel or tapping it. Touch control is enhanced by voice prompts that provide all necessary information about the status of the headphones. Crystal clear sound quality is ensured by dual microphones within the ear cups that continuously monitor ambient noise to dynamically cancel out external interference for clearer speech.
