The Urbanears Kransen is an in-ear headphone with a retail price tag of Php1,950. If you are a stranger in the earphone market, you would consider this as expensive, but contrary to that belief, this price point is actually in the entry level category.

Retail package

Aside for the Kransen unit, the retail package also includes a sticker, warranty card (since all Urbanears products have at least 1 year warranty), sticker, catalog and extra ear buds. There is a wide array of colors to choose from, 13 to be exact, the one I have is clover.


DESIGN:

CableLoop solution

The Kransen has two very unique and useful designs, the SnapConstruction and CableLoop solution. The former allows you to wear the headset around your neck by connecting the two ear buds together while the latter allows you to wrap and secure the cord in place by inserting the 3.5mm metal jack to the hole of the rubberized portion.

Another feature is the tangle-resistant fabric with Kevlar core, as the name implies, the cord does not get tangled much when you put it in your pocket or bag and the cable remains straight when you untangled them.

There is also an inline microphone and remote located on the left ear's cable. It is compatible with most devices which you can use to answer/cancel a call or to play/pause a song when you are listening to your favorite music.


PERFORMANCE and VERDICT:

The Kransen ergonomically stay in your ear when in-use even if you move quite often. I used different kinds of musics, from rock, jazz, classical to acoustic and I can say that it delivers well in terms of performance. The output is not distorted even if you opt to max out the volume. In terms of audio reproduction, I can say that it is on the lower part of the harmony, in other words, it produces sounds that our heavy in bass.

  1. Unfortunately this one was a little to treble happy for my taste. The good thing here is the kransen was priced right for the build quality and performance. There are better cheaper alternatives though, like the soundmagic es20, es18, philips she3590 and superlux 381f

  16. Aside from the fact that there are 13 colors to choose from, this clover colored Urbanears Kransen, is a stand out for me. The flexibility of the cord of the Kransen is impressive giving you a tangle free cords. As a music enthusiast its a winner for me.
