VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • The protective case does its job with a hard shell and separate pockets.
  • It is comfortable to wear for hours.
  • For Android and Microsoft phone users, it's NFC-enabled for a convenient connection.

CONS

  • The headphones make a creaking noise when moved or adjusted.
  • Some reviewers have mentioned digital interference and over-exaggerated base.
  • This is not a product for small heads.
The Kinivo Urbn Bluetooth headphones also work wired or using an NFC chip. The Urbn comes in a hard-shell carrying case that has a pocket for cables. It has a built-in microphone for phone calls and a set of buttons to control the music. This headphone may be well-rated, but reviewers find their own unique complaints about it. Some say the joints creak; others say it slips off their heads. Some hate how loud the base notes are, while others are disappointed. Despite the complaints, the consensus is Urbn headphones are well-made.

As for range, they're what we'd call a solid "decent." They feature 40mm drivers, but we didn't get the bass that we thought we were going to. However, they don't sound tinny, hollow, or blown out either.

Even though they are designed to sit on your ears they have pretty good sound isolation.

I don’t feel like they are going to break on me, but that is always a thought that comes when you hear creaking.

Does the Urbn invent bass when it isn't in the mix? Indeed. Fans of the mega-bass sound will be pleased, while purists will recoil—something as innocent as a drum tap on this track sounds like Godzilla stomping on a city street.
