Urbanears has released the Plattan 2 Bluetooth headphones, which offer 30+ hours of continuous playtime per charge.
Plattan 2 Bluetooth offers a wireless range of up to 10 metres, and allows wearers to navigate their music using a single control knob. Offering an ergonomic fit, they come with a music sharing plug-in, and collapsible design.
Building on the original wired design of the Plattan headphones, which included a textile-wrapped cord, Urbanears called on Swedish knitwear designer Sandra Backlund to develop a new design that eliminated the wire altogether.
"Human-centered design and functionality have always been integral parts of the Urbanears brand, and the cord is a good example of that," says Ida Holmen, PR Manager. "When we wrapped the cord in fabric, it was transformed beyond its standard function into something that added value to the overall look, feel, and experience. To mark Plattan 2 Bluetooth's evolution beyond the cord, we wanted to pay tribute to this piece of Plattan's legacy in a fitting way."
Plattan 2 Bluetooth is now available for purchase for US$100 in the five classic Urbanears colours: black, dark grey, indigo, tomato, and white.
