Up next is the Urbanista Berlin headphones.. We have been trying these out about a week now and overall they have been quite nice and comfortable, Preferably I wear cans but do like to dabble with these type too, however I prefer the pod type design over those buds which do not get on with me at all but having said that the inclusion of extra buds in some recent earphones I have tried have kind of fixed that issue for me and there is some really nice offerings out there and we will have some reviews coming up soon on our other earbuds that have arrived.

 

Packaging is pretty neat and one thing I like is good presentation they get a thumbs up here from me in that department. Contents is as expected,we have some information which is handy and we also get a cable for charging alongside the product itself.

 

 

They are good but I have seen better for less but nonetheless they are nice and work well and for the most as I have mentioned comfortable which is for me important,the only thing though is that when using at full volume for example you can get quite a bit of distortion depending on the music you are listening too and also not much bass, For me though I am the type of person that does listen at full volume which is probably not the smartest thing to do but I like my music that way and listen to it that way for a reason……………. So I cant hear anyone else.. The only time to do so would be when I got calls using these and for the most these where fine and nothing to disclose there, Calls where clear though I am on a network with HD calling which is pretty good quality…

 

 

As for functionality they have everything you need with an average battery life a quite good control unit with tactile buttons that you can easily navigate blindly and are on the money for sensitivity they all worked well, They are also easy to pair and there us a built in LED light to tell you when you are connected or if the headset is awaiting a connection, Also the grip is quite good and it feels good to hold and not slippy Here is also where the charging port is built in so for me it was all nicely placed and easy to use.
