Zinken Headphones by Urbanears
Science meets artistry: connecting high-performance tech with sharp style and practicality, Urbanears’ headphones are uncomplicated, contemporary pieces. Practical to the highest degree, the Zinken DJ headphones isolate the outside world, allowing listeners to focus on the deep bass and precise highs. Sociable, too, the headphones have a ZoundPlug to enable a friend to plug their headphones to yours, a built-in microphone and controls, and a flexible, adjustable headband. An accessory available in a rainbow of rich shades to match any outfit, the Zinken is an indispensable everyday companion.

The new trend in headphones is moving from small, compact earbuds to big DJ-quality headphones that envelop the ears and provide state of the art audio quality. But the top of the headphone line generally costs pretty big bucks. For instance, a really upscale pair of headphones can cost hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.

But the new Zinken headphones from Urbanears have all of the top-flight features of an upscale pair, but with the relatively low-ticket price of $140 at their website. Those features include a detachable cable, built in microphone, and a remote control, all in addition to the style that one expects from a good pair of headphones.

Zinken is an on-ear DJ headphone extraordinaire, packed with features like the dual-duty TurnCable and the ZoundPlug. We’ve designed Zinken to be ultra comfortable, even for hours on end. That means you can keep that deep bass, as well as those crisp mids and hig
