Urbanears Zinken

Grabbing headphone fashion by the colour-blocked balls, these are fashion headphones before anything else, available in eleven loud colours to match your shirt...

Big headphones has an image transformation from retro dad antiques to cool street wear sometime in the summer of 2009 and never looked back. Urbanears from Sweden ride the crest of the fashion wave and are as much as a staple of European clothes shops as gadget stores.

Now £89, there’s a lot to love about these thin yet ear enveloping Urbanears Zinken cans that are lightweight and can be easily put away on your bag. There’s an extra headphone port on the cable for sharing your music and a folding DJ style design in each cup.

Overall, these are comfy, fashionable and some of the smallest and lightest ‘big’ headphones we’ve seen which means they’re girl friendly too. Whichever way you look at it, that’s a design triumph in itself.
