Stockholm, Sweden — Sept. 10, 2018 – Urbanears today announces its collabora­tion with Chinatown Market.

Plattan 2 Chinatown Market Edition

Urbanears is a design-driven brand that loves to challenge conventions and norms on what can be done and how things should look. Urbanears’ mini­mal, functional design was ideal for the collaboration with Chinatown Market. It gave the brand a dark gray canvas to produce these simple, yet stylish, headphones embossed with the clas­sic Chinatown Market “Smiley” logo.

The Plattan 2 is a staple in the Ur­banears line-up, featuring a flexible 3D Hinge, extra isolating ear cushions and clear, well-defined sound. It boasts all of Urbanears’ iconic details — like the fabric cord, built-in mic/remote and music-sharing ZoundPlug.
