Extreme is Urbanz’s first Bluetooth sport headphone model, designed for seriously sporty people. The headphones feature a robust yet flexible neckband frame, a secure fin ear-hook to lock into a user’s ear and have an IPX6 waterproof rating. The IPX6 rating sets the Extreme apart from other Bluetooth sports headphones as they have been specifically designed and manufactured to work in wet conditions; from jogging in light drizzle to sprinting in a downpour. To get this rating a product needs to undergo rigorous tests, one of which was exposing the headphones to powerful jets spraying at least 100 litres of water over its outer casing without any water penetrating. Not even in the UK do we get rain this bad!
During the research and development phase, Urbanz issued a number of Extreme headphones to be tested by members of running and triathlon clubs who really put the products through their paces. Frank McManus from Glasgow stating that he was “really impressed with the quality and how easy they were to connect,” whilst Brian Hood from Nottingham picked out that the headphones were “unaffected by external noise and strong wind” which supports their durability in extreme conditions.
Urbanz Marketing Manager, James Ireland said: “I wanted the headphone to be reviewed and tested by the end user as it gave the brand a truer reflection on the products performance and gave us an insight into what features the end user actually wants. The feedback we have received proves why we believe Extreme will be a top performer in a very competitive marketplace.”
Extreme is compatible with IOS and Android devices with Bluetooth connectivity. The Bluetooth setup takes seconds and the connection is strong, ensuring ‘no drop’ or intermittent performance.
Urbanz CEO, Robert Kennard, added: “We are extremely excited to be launching the Extreme headphone, as it is our first Bluetooth sport model and bolsters our ever growing range in the sports headphone sector. We wanted to bring in a headphone that offers a fantastic sound and performance, but also making it affordable to the end user. I believe at £39.99 we have done that and the Extreme is going to be an undeniable success.”
