The colour on paper is possibly the last colour I would choose, but on opening the box it was different, looked good, something that could be worn with any style,stylish for a male / female.young / old,Gym or office. The Urbanista’s Rome is light and fits comfortable around your neck, a great feature is also the earbuds which fit together magnetically.

The remote on the neckband allows you to adjust the volume, pause and play your tunes or skip between tracks.The charging lead is shorter than many leads but does the job as required, (The plug is not supplied but any phone /USB charger etc will work) A great battery life of 16 hours a massive 600 hours standby time.2.5 hours to charge. The battery life is a great bonus as compared to many other units which is an abundant battery life for hectic schedules.

Ease of use get a Big thumbs up..

Rome is compatible with Android, iOS and Windows This is connected to the phone via the norma Bluetooth with no app required to download or setup required. This Rome Earphones were setup to a Windows 10 laptop, again connected in seconds. Many other Bluetooth devices would not connect to windows having tried various driver to install in the past. The quality via Spotify was not as good on the Bluetooth via a laptop as compared to a phone, which I suspect is down to the laptop rather than the earphones. Connected to iPhone had an enjoyable audio experience.

The Urbanista comes with a 1-year warranty. Some web sites advise they are Water and sweat
resistant for long-lasting durability, this is not mentioned on the Manual or the official website.
Their website states, The Urbanista Warranty does not cover: Defects and damages due to dropping, mechanical damage, damp, moisture. Some of their products are Water and sweat resistant but not covered for damp and moisture! Unfortunately, the manual supplied has no mention of damp / moisture not been covered.

The unit design, has the flexibility to allow the Earphones to be folded into a jacket pocket if
required when travelling. The unit does come with a travel bag. When the earphone was tested at high volume there was minimal sound to a person beside the earphone, excellent for travelling on the Bus etc, not to disturb other passengers. The earphone fitted snugly around your neck and stayed secure all day without getting uncomfortable after hours of use. The earbuds fitted perfect for an adult without any difficulty, if using this for a child the ear bud may be too big,

The unit is easy to setup, excellent battery life allowing much-loved music played or chatting
on the phone, a front-runner choice.
