Review: Urbanears Zinken – Tech

Urbanears has become synonymous with stylish audio gear that doesn’t compromise on performance, combining smart audio engineering with sleek Scandinavian design and the option for vibrant hues. With the newly relaunched Zinken headphones, the brand is aiming to elevate your listening experience without breaking the bank, and they’re very affordable at £89.99.

The first iteration of the product came out 2013 and won over many DJs and music fans, leading to Urbanears continuing to stock spare parts due to demand after retiring the line in 2017. Now after some fine-tuning, an improved design has arrived, featuring improvements to the sound and durability, as well being more sustainable.

From the moment of unboxing, it’s clear that Urbanears has paid attention to design, with a minimalistic aesthetic that is available in ‘Jet Black’, or ‘Salsa Red’ and ‘Taxi Yellow’ for the more adventurous. Crafted from a blend of sturdy plastics (87% recycled) and metal accents, the Zinken headphones are built to withstand the rigours of the road and the chaos of DJ tours. A partnership with NTS has seen the gain the back of DJs such as Fauzia, Moxie, and Marcel Dettmann.
