Headphones used to be discrete and smaller were way better. But, folks, less is not always more and in this case, more is more and the bigger the better. Pop a pair of statement headphones on and voilà – you have added a little urban edge, street cool and opened the door to headphone-ising. Statement headphones are making a big noise as a style statement. Enter Urbanears Plattan Headphones and…we’re in love!


  Susie Bubble rocks the Urbanears in Plattan white


The bells and whistles:
The Plattan is designed to be the perfect classic headphone with all the features that take it up a notch and beyond the ordinary headphone. It folds up to the size of your fist and comes with a ZoundPlug that allows you to instantly share music with a friend! PLUS the microphone and remote are compatible with most devices.

While its features are cool, the colours are what get us excited. The headphones are available in several cool shades and we have three sets, in the hottest colours, to give away.

    I will remix myself with these pair of headphones! Absolutely rad! Urbanears Plattan white headphones will go perfect with three quarter black drop crotch pants, grey vest, all black aviator sunglasses, paired with Steve Madden high top trainers! OMG, they so cool!

    With me being a media student and a new magazine editor who have recently got into a new venture of being a radio dj I loved plattan urbanears headphones when a friend of mine who is a club dj borrowed me when I was co-hosting a show on our community station and the sound that came through them was just immaculate. I knew I had to have them. If I would win them I’d rock them with my everyday style which is rocking a beanie and my nerdy prescription glasses, my plain solid colour T-shirts and jeans with hi-top sneakers and I’m good to go. Into radio or out with my dj friends ☺.

    I love Plattan Urbanears because it blends music with fashion/ clothing even as far as having a label (just like clothing). So in essence when you’re walking down the street you’re not only listening to music, but setting a statement for others to follow. I would wear the Urbanears Plattan coral with my V-neck T-shirt, which happens to be the exact same colour as well as my white trousers and brown leather mid-top sneakers with neck and wrist accessories.

    The Plattan headphones will certainly make for a fashionable statement, making your ear look soo sexy. Music and Fashion have always gone hand in hand, it makes sense that Urbanears would understand that you can’t be do one without the other..The colours are vibrant, bold and sexy, not only that the headphones give a quality feel and a tough leather finish adding to their minimalist stylishness..Meaning these will hold out for long and fold up neatly fitting into your equally stylish bag. I would wear them a aztec tee with leather finishes , a pair of denim shorts and ankle boots, of course while djing at a fabulous party.

    oh my word. I need one in every colour. :(

    Didn’t even notice it was a competition. Too much of beautiful in my eyes. *blush* they made me drool.

    I have my eye on a gorgeous leather dress at Topshop and will most definitely be making it mine come pay day! These Urbanears would add a quirky edge to the simple dress worn with winter woolies and a coat!

    With me being a club dj i think they will assist me in terms of sound. I love style, flair, dope culture. And I think these headphones will do me best. I love the features & colour.
