Made for sports and designed for an active lifestyle, is the Urbanears Stadion. A Bluetooth sports headphone with a bold design. These are really great for running,
the design is very conducive for a running lifestyle. A lightweight pair of headphones you will not feel them on the head and ears. These are also comfortable while running
you are not grabbing them or searching for them. The headphones are also sweat-proof, which is even better for those long runs. Overall these are really nota pair of headphones you would wear outside of the gym, running
or being active.
Please note that many mentioned these being a great option for cold weather running or biking. They are sweat-proof but it's not clear how much sweat they can withhold.
The Urbanears Stadion is Bluetooth capable for cord-free listening and hands-free calls. Although these are not meant for just taking phone calls, of course, if you have to take a phone call, that’s OK too. The battery life comes in at an average charge which gives you playback time of seven hours. It’s always important to have strong battery life. However a few said the battery life doesn’t hold up to its standard.
The headphones have built-in reflectors which make it easier to run at night or walk the dog at night. The reflectors
will ensure that people can see you. The headphones also come with four different color options.
We wouldn’t usually think of the buttons as an advanced feature but the buttons on these are around the back. A three-button control to click through the playlist, adjust volume and pick up calls. The idea is to not slow down while on the run and to keep pushing forward. They’re sweat-proof which make it perfect for those long runs or hard workouts at the gym, however, they do not have an IP rating to confirm this.
The top feature for the Urbanears Stadion is the design, these are semi-open in-ear headphones. Of course, this is not great for noise isolation but it’s great as a safety feature for runners and bikers who are active around traffic. These allow the runner or the biker to be able to hear surrounding noises plus continue to listen to music.
If you are looking for a pair of headphones with loud bass and superior sound quality this may not be the best pair for you. The sound quality is enough for a good workout, run or bike ride but it’s not one of the best. The audio
is crisp and clean on the delivery which is important for the listener. The biggest negative is that there is not that massive bass sound, it’s just a basic delivery on the sound. There’s also a very deep low in the drumming but overall the crisp, well-defined sound that accentuates the vocals, but is lighter on the bass is what you get here.
The earbud-style is part of the reason why the bass is weak and on top of that, they are designed to let some outside noise in as these are not fully noise cancellation headphones. Of course when they are not noise cancellation that does affect the overall sound quality.
If you would like to take a phone call with these headphones, of course, this is possible but the quality of the sound could use some improvements.
A secure fit and Bluetooth capability allow you to easily stay connected in style with the Urbanears Stadion. The neck-band style with a coiled cable is a stylish and functional design. On the back of the neck-band, there is a three control panel with plus and minus buttons, and one main central button. The plus and minus buttons control both volume and track navigation, to skip ahead or skip back on a track. It can be difficult to maximize the buttons because you might be changing the volume instead of just skipping forward on the track. The central button controls playback and calls management.
These are designed with three sets of ear-tips all in differently shaped fins for you to find the best match. All of the ear-tips are designed with a secure fit. They also come with a USB charging cord and a padded case to put them inside to keep them secure and safe. The microphone is located on the right earpiece and as mentioned before delivers a decent quality sound but not the best.
Pro tip: Users with longer hair may have issues using the bottoms if they do not put their hair under the band or tie it back.
The Urbanears Stadion are designed with comfort in mind, which is one of the reasons that they have a unique design with the neck-band and coiled look. There are also extremely lightweight which is an important aspect when it comes to comfort. A few mentioned that they don’t stay in the ears well and that the ear-tip shapes do not fit their ears. These come with three different sized ear-tips so overall it is likely that they don’t fit someone but there is that small chance. It’s important to experience with the different sized tips to find the right comfort level. The stretchy coils on the back of the head, adapt to the shape of the head and EarClick technology makes for great fit keep the buds in place.
One last note, if you do wear glasses these will most likely interfere with them since they go over your ears like glasses.
The style and overall aesthetics are definitely one of the main positives and pros of these wireless Bluetooth earbuds. It has a unique and interesting look, especially for a neckband style of Bluetooth earbuds. Urbanears is a Scandinavian brand and they are known for providing functional design and minimal design. The design of the Stadion pays special attention to the details. The coils on the back of the neck were appealing to most people in terms of the design and the fit since the coils adjust to the head size of the person, but not everyone enjoyed wearing it or could adjust to the overall feel. It’s really a hate or love type of design. But overall the style is what has drawn in consumers.
The Stadion comes in four different colors, black, blue, white and a red-pink color. The white one gives off a very minimal feel. All of the colors come with reflective details which is an added bonus and an added style element. They also come with a small carry pouch that is perfect to carry the headphones with you.
Made in Scandinavia they are built to last. The fit is secure and designed to fit around the head of each individual person. There are three sizes of ear tips so you can be sure to find the right fit for your ears. There is no proof that these are sweat-proof and waterproof however they are advertised as sweat-proof but there is no rating to confirm this. We advise to use caution when sweating or getting wet with these headphones on.
Ease of Use
The Urbanears Stadion is very easy to use and especially easy to charge with a micro-USB charging port under the flap on the inside of the body on the neck piece. The coiled cord design that stretches around the head to fit the shape of each head makes it very easy to just pop on and not worry about fixing the size or dealing with any cords. They do not block out any noise, so plan to use this pair of headphones to listen to music, knowing you may hear some background noise. Phone calls can definitely be answered with a quick click on the back of the head where the remote is you can answer and hang out. It may not be a perfect stream of voice, but it can definitely be used. The microphone is on the right earpiece and that's easy to access and find.
These are advertised at seven hours of battery life, however, there were a few comments that mentioned the headphones dying before the seven hours were finished. They come with an easy USB cord to recharge and a single recharge gives you seven hours of playback. It might depend on how loud you are listening or if you skip to the next song frequently.
As for anyone who is failing to do a full re-charge or playing the music really loud it will be difficult to max out the full seven hours.
At seventy-five dollars a pair these are not inexpensive but they are not expensive. These are coming in at about an average price for a pair of Bluetooth wireless headphones. Given the number of users who have been disappointed with the battery life and didn’t love the sound produced they might skew slightly higher depending on your taste. There is no warranty on these which does make the seventy-five dollars feel slightly higher because of course knowing you have safety net always helps when making a purchase.
If you are looking for an innovatively designed pair of wireless headphones strictly for the gym, the price may be slightly high, but it could still be worth it for an outdoor runner or biker. These are perfect to hear outside noises while still getting on with your own music.
