UNBOXED: Reviewing the Urbanears Stadion Active Bluetooth Headphones
Urbanears is not a new name to the UNBOXED crew. We saw them early on in our run with the Hellas Active workout headphones, an on-ear headphone that had removable pads that could be washed.
This time around, Urbanears passed along their recently released Stadion in-ear active headphones. The theme of being workout-approved headphones remains, but the method of getting music to the listener’s ears was a little different. For Stadion, Urbanears went the behind the head route.
To be honest, out of the box I was a little concerned about how I’d like the fit of the Stadion. All of the components of the product are housed in a curved plastic casing that rests behind the wearer’s head. At first glance it doesn't have the best visual appeal and looks like it'd be rather uncomfortable to wear. The materials used, however, make the fit a comfortable one. The coiled cables conform nicely to your head, and the hooked earpieces rest gently over your ears. All of that combined made Stadion one of the most comfortable behind-the-head headphones I’ve ever worn.
