Headphones

Zound Industries

Urbanears Humlan is a brand new concept in headphones. The world’s first headphone with washable parts, Urbanears Humlan is designed to give you a listening experience that’s always fresh and clean, prolonging the life of your headphones. The headband and ear cushions are completely removable, and can be washed in your washing machine. These headphones defy the consumer electronic stereotype, with garment-like details throughout, including the fabric used and the metal buttons that fasten the headband in place. These headphones are to be seen as a natural extension of your wardrobe.

JURY STATEMENT

The Urbanears Humlan are designed for the users’ multi-sensory pleasure and this is extended to also include smell and touch. By being able to wash the removable parts in the washing machine, the user benefits from functional thinking to the level of renewable pleasure. The large color range appeals to a wide variety of users, and the unicolor design makes Urbanears Humlan a distinct individual statement in personal branding. By making the headphones a part of the user’s wardrobe, Urbanears Humlan demonstrates profound consideration for a new level of simplicity and functionality.
