International CES® is almost underway and last night we got a sneak peek at a few exhibitors. Even though the venue was overcrowded, we were able to find a few gems that we’d like to highlight. From cell phone cases, 3D printers, headphones and smart coffee machines, these are just a handful of the tech that we’ll be checking out this week during the International CES 2015.
First up, we swung by Urbanears™. In case you are unfamiliar them, they are a line of headphones that are not only stylish but highly affordable. During CES Unveiled, we learned that Urbanears is finally going wireless with the upcoming release of the Plattan ADV Wireless. Coming later this Summer, Urbanears will provide a wireless headset that is not only super affordable but will also feature some neat features.
Check out the press release below for more information:
Move around freely, pick up calls and listen to music on the go without tangled cords. Hassle-free as it should be! The Plattan ADV Wireless headphone is the first Bluetooth headphone in the Urbanears line-up. It comes with a built in microphone, a swipe interface on the ear cup and it is ready for 8-hours solid playtime before recharging. Add lots of cool and innovative features like the machine washable headband, collapsible structure, ZoundPlug and equalizer and you have yourself a match made in headphone heaven.
Plattan ADV will be available as of June 2nd at select Urbanears retailers worldwide, and online at urbanears.com.
Wireless Bluetooth Technology: The ear cups have a built-in swipe interface where you can answer calls, adjust volume and switch tracks with a simple touch. A small led light indicator on the ear cup provides information about power status and Bluetooth connection. The headphone can be paired wirelessly with any Bluetooth device within a 10-meter range (33 feet). To enable rapid seamless pairing Plattan ADV Wireless comes with Bluetooth version 4.0 which remembers up to eight previously paired units. After 8-hours play time you can simply charge it with the micro-USB cable that is included.
Design: Just like the regular Plattan ADV these headphones provide an ergonomically improved custom fit through the 3D-hinge functionality. The ear cushions smoothly adjusts to the user’s ears and head and they are engineered to be worn for hours on end. Since the Plattan ADV Wireless belongs to the Urbanears family it also comes with other handy features such as the ZoundPlug for instant music sharing and the collapsible structure for easy storage.
The ultimate closet staple: The Plattan headphone models are the ultimate closet staples: Color match them with your business attire and wear them on your way to work, put em’ on during the laid back coffee shop study sesh or add a fun twist to your workout gear. The washable headband can easily be removed with the snap-in-place magnets and tossed in to the washer with the rest of your laundry.
