‘copenhagen headphones’ by urbanista

copenhagen‘ is a series of colourful folding headphones, produced by stockholm-based design concept shop urbanista (founded by johan wahlbäck and daniel roos), which produces products geared towards the needs and fashions of urban living.

the mid-size, over-the-ear headphones feature an unconventional square-like shape, with an integrated microphone along their cord. two joints permit the device to be folded into a compact shape for easy transport.

the series, composed of steel, is produced in ‘red snapper’ (red with black), ‘crispy apple’ (green with white), ‘gun metal’ (silver with black), ‘fluffy cloud’ (white with white), ‘dark clown’ (black with black), and ‘pink panther’ (fuchsia with white), all retailing for 99 USD.

  • Amazing design but these look really painful to wear. I really hope that that part that contacts the ear are made of something comfortable.

  • As a proud (Swedish) owner of a pair of Copenhagen’s, I must strongly recommend these awesome design icons! And yes, the cushion is comfortable and yet small enough to not destroy the slim design!
