Recently we have checked out some products from the good folks at Urbanista such as the Urbanista Stockholm True wireless earbuds and their latest speaker which is the Sydney bluetooth speaker which packs a punch..
One thing with Urbanista over the years I am testing their products is they are consistent with delivering quality goods and Audio at an affordable price and the same applies to their latest instalment we have hear today. And we also get some new features over the Stockholm version we last checked out which is most welcome.
They have the same profile as before and the same charging case only slightly different with USB-C charging and Wireless charging which certainly is most welcome and keeping up with the times which many still tend to leave out today at this price point.
These are more stable in the ears thanks to the buds provided with some extra size buds included and of course they have thrown in the USB-C cable, Again we have the touch sensitive area to control the earbuds which leaves you free from your phone which is nice…
The control will take a but to get the muscle memory right if you are not custom to the touch sensitive type but you will be fine, controls are simple after that and you have all you need one or two taps away.
The controls are as follows
TURN OFF VOICE ASSISTANT – Touch the R logo twice.
ANSWER A CALL – Touch the logo twice on the right (R) or
left (L) earphone.
END A CALL – Touch the logo twice on the right (R) or left (L)
REJECT A CALL – Touch and hold the logo on the right (R) or left
(L) earphone for 2 seconds
PLAY MUSIC – Touch the logo twice on the left (L) earphone
PAUSE MUSIC – Touch the logo twice on the left (L) earphone
ADJUST THE VOLUME (+) – Touch the logo once on the right (R)
ADJUST THE VOLUME (-) – Touch the logo once on the left (L)
SKIP A TRACK FORWARD – Touch the logo on the right (R)
earphone for 2 seconds.
SKIP A TRACK BACKWARD – Touch the logo on the left (L)
earphone for 2 seconds
On testing the call quality is great,crisp and clear and both ends of the call have same result, If you want to use individually it will have to be the left one, so when you put the right in the left will stay connected but not vice versa. Bluetooth connection seen me around 40/50 ft before I seen any sign of a break up.
When it comes to sound they shine and have a nice level of bass here, Urbanista do not yet have an app but I feel they do not need one but would be nice going forward to customise your sound but for the price you cant complain. Overall the sound was well balanced with good direction and easy to hear separation with sound,music and instruments and with vocals you will not be shortchanged and there was no lag latency on watching my usual You Tube or Nextflix test reels.
With Wireless charging USB-C,good battery life and an IPX5 rating they have delivered once again and they come in some really catchy looking colours too to suit everyone at a really good price.
