I have been using Urbanista products some time now and one thing I can safely say is they are solid prodcuts and last. The new Urbanista Tokyo are no different either and if good sound is what you are after in this type or earphone these have it.

First up if you missed it check the unboxing below.

Setting up these guys is simple enough if you are use to this format as they can be individually used or used both together which is the ideal set up especially for music and you tube for example, During the process though on set-up there is a dull robotic woman telling you if they are on/off, connected /disconnected although I could forgive it as most others sound identical and she sounds unique here with these and the fact its there is a good thing and missing on many other brands.

Build quality is great and they are solid  I have dropped mine a few times and on some occasions one might fall out and remain unmarked. On using these outdoors quite often the charge case that comes with it is great,its small neat and will fit in any pocket and give you extra juice on your commute to work or a trip to the gym for example. This case gives you three additional full charges which is plenty for anyone. The housing is quite solid with rubber and plastic and feel solid as I mentioned and seem to fine given the drops they had to date.

When you pair these up there is a light on either side which can be distracting for some in dark lit rooms for example, One example as such i would use them in bed watching You Tube or listening to music and they flash all the time but its not much of a concern depending on who is with you or where you use them but you will notice this.

Charge time is around one hour and battery life seem consitent with the manufacturers claims and it is adviseable to keep the charging case with you on long commutes. Given I am still not sold on in-ears like this I am now beginning to like them more and these are VERY comfortable and you have the extra buds inside to get that perfect fit. I did find a bit bulky and top heavy and they fell out a few times but thats to be said for others I have tried bar the top heavy feel to them.

One area where they lack though is with multifunction.. You cant skip tracks which is slightly annoying but can be forgiven with the price and overall quality of the earphone but everything else works fine and with ease and they are really simple to use. They did disconnect with my phone a few times but I would blame my phone more so here which was the Nokia 7 plus which has an issue this department.

Phone calls and music are crisp and clear on this headset and as mentioned to music shines through pretty good here which I was surprised with and left me impressed enough to reccomend a purchase here with ease. Depending on your equalizer settings you might want to adjust them to get your prefferred sound and when tuned up right you will not be dissapointed with sound quality here at all, Having tried the usual genres,highs,lows and mids they performed well and left me happy overall with the product.
