Urban Ears Releases Zinken Headphones, Helps You Share Your Music

Urbanears sells some of the most colorful and creative headphones on the market today, and now they’re releasing a new pair of cans with a very interesting feature.

The new Zinken have a replaceable cable (a GREAT feature for consumer cans), but they also feature the “ZoundPlug,” an additional headphon jack ON the headphones which another person can plug into and share the listening experience.

These look like Urbanears’ most ambitious headphones to date, and Zinken feature some compelling features for their $140 MSRP.

Full PR after the jump.

Introducing Zinken – the most ambitious headphone created by Urbanears yet. Zinken is a brand new approach to the concept of a headphone as a musical instrument. Developed with the professional DJ in mind, with respect to the wallet of the unpaid amateur, Zinken is chock-full of handy features like the TurnCable and the ZoundPlug.

TurnCable

Built with a rugged Kevlar® inside, the TurnCable features a 6.3mm plug for use with a mixer, and a 3.5mm for mobile devices such as cell phones or MP3 players. The TurnCable also features a coiled section giving you freedom to move without disrupting the sound coming from your headphones.

ZoundPlug

Originally featured on the Urbanears Plattan headphone, the ZoundPlug is not actually a plug, but rather an audio output socket that allows another person to plug in and listen to whatever you are listening to.

 


Design

Zinken is designed to be ultra wearable – the kind of headphone that can be worn for hours at a time. It features a padded headband and comfortable ear cushions for longer wearability.  The increased foam density of the ear cushions achieves superior noise isolation, while the swivel ear cups allow you to adjust your playing style. Urbanears has also chosen to work with materials that do not absorb odors and sweat, for those extra-long sessions.


Sound
Urbanears spoke with a wide-variety of DJs during the testing phase of Zinken. Those who play to sold-out arenas, and those who dream of making it big time. Not only were they looking for a headphone that was comfortable to wear, but also confortable to listen to for long periods of time. With this in mind, the Urbanears sound engineers tweaked Zinken’s sound so that it would thrive in a DJ environment, but would also excel at day-to-day use. The result is a headphone that produces accurate sound, with slight adjustments to the low and high frequencies for more comfortable listening.Zinken features a custom-designed 40mm dual diaphragm driver that is finely tuned to provide amazing sound across the entire frequency spectrum.Zinken will be available in the full-range of Urbanears colors on July 15th at Urbanears’ retailers, and online atwww.urbanears.com. MSRP will be $140.

Urbanears makes headphones that fit your everyday life. Supplying the perfect listening device for anyone with a pocket full of music and a wish to make the most of it, Urbanears models are designed to optimize sound and captivate self-aware customers by matching preferences in size, style, design, function and relation to music. Other companies may try to emulate the brand, but Urbanears is the original in colorful headphones.
