Until now, Urbanears headphones were limited to in or on ear designs. The new <a href="https://www.urbanears.com/us/en/pampas.html" rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Pampas</a> wireless headphone introduces a new option for those of us who like our headphones with an over-ear feel and sound.
Available in three colors – Almond Beige, Field Green, and Charcoal Black – the Pampas over-ear headphones follow a similar template to the brand’s line of simplistic forms partnered with matte color finishes that characterize their wireless speakers. USB-C charging offers 30+ hours of Bluetooth playback, with the addition of a novel “sharing is caring” option, allowing a second pair of headphones to plug in for listening together.
A small knob adds a tactile control for skipping tracks, adjusting volume, and to answer calls wirelessly, a welcome addition in comparison to many headphone brands moving toward annoyingly fussy touch-swipe controls.
The Pampas over-ear headphones are available at Urbanears.com for $149.
