Urbanista HUGO fashion tech audio headphones - techbuzzireland

Iconic German fashion brand, HUGO, and Swedish lifestyle audio brand, Urbanista, are proud to announce the launch of HUGO x Urbanista Los Angeles headphones: the must-have audio fashion accessory of the season. HUGO x Urbanista Los Angeles is an exclusive, limited edition HUGO-style version of the innovative Urbanista Los Angeles solar-powered headphones, using ground-breaking Powerfoyle™ solar cell technology.

HUGO is for those who prefer to lead, not to follow. Geared towards style individualists who always go their own way, the HUGO brand combines a mix of modern tailoring and strong casual influences, delivering unconventional looks for trendsetters, movers and shakers. Urbanista was born in 2010 in Stockholm, Sweden, out of love for cities and urban life, and is renowned for producing products rooted in Scandinavian design tradition and inspired by music, arts, fashion, and urban culture.

The HUGO x Urbanista collaboration combines HUGO’s streetwear-inspired flair with Urbanista’s understated Scandinavian design aesthetic, coming together in an exclusive, limited edition pair of headphones. These audio accessories are truly a one-of-a-kind style statement, with their unique two-tone colourway taking inspiration from HUGO’s iconic collections.

Urbanista Los Angeles was first launched in August 2021, as the world’s first self-charging wireless headphones, powered by Powerfoyle™ solar cell material. Using advanced green technology, Los Angeles converts all light, outdoor and indoor, into energy to deliver virtually infinite playtime. Since 2021, the Urbanista Los Angeles headphones have been awarded with numerous design awards, including the renowned Red Dot Best of the Best 2022 Award and iF Design Award 2022, among many others.

The HUGO x Urbanista limited edition headphones will be compatible with the Urbanista mobile companion app. The mobile app allows you to customise features and personalise the way you use and experience your audio. The app has a live-charging view for following the headphones’ battery gain and drain status. You can also switch between different sound modes with ease, create personal settings to your headphones’ controls, and six unique EQ settings.

Priced at 209 GBP/249 USD/239 EUR, the HUGO x Urbanista Los Angeles will be available from 14th June 2023 at selected retailers worldwide, and online at www.urbanista.com/hugo and www.hugo.com
