First of all I would like to thank Sennheiser for sending the headphones out for review. I was intrigued to hear how the Sennheiser Urbanites would compare to other portable headphones, such as the AKG K545s which I own and have reviewed, among others in its very competitive space.
The Sennheiser Urbanites can be found on AmazonUK for around £150 and on AmazonUSA for around $120. Unfortunately, there’s a massive difference in price between the UK and US versions. As I live and review from the UK – the price tag I will be reviewing this at is the £150 / $240 price tag. The version I was sent is called “Nation” – it can be found in various different colours.
Here’s my video review on the headphones:
