I like the simple, square packaging which reminds me of a video game box.
The Urbanears Medis comes in 13 different colors, the pair I'm reviewing is in Sage.
The earpieces sport a very unique shape. I couldn't quite figure out how to wear them at first but once I did they were pretty comfy. It employs Urbanears' unique EarClick Construction for a perfect fit.
It comes with a standard connector which fits the earphones slot of your cellphone, music player, computer, etc.
Different sizes of pads are also packed with the earphones. Medium is pre-installed but you can change to Small, Large, and Extra Large. They're contained in separate packets.
There's also a Neutral Stereo Plug you can use for older mobile phones in case you encounter sound interference.
I tried listening to music from my Samsung Galaxy S2.
I thought the sound quality was okay although nothing special.
What I thought of Urbanears Medis:
- The design and packaging looks very cool and cutting edge.
- I like that there are a lot of colors to choose from and it's actually fashionable.
- Sound quality is average. You probably would not be impressed if you're a music enthusiast. A casual listener might find it okay though.
- There's a microphone attached on the wire so you can actually use it to converse.
- The fit is customizable thanks to the extra ear pads.
- I like the fabric cord which doesn't twist and tangle easily.
- It's not very sensitive as you need more volume to listen properly compared to the iPod's default earphones.
- It's pricey at P2,450.
Urbanears Medis earphones are available at Beyond The Box, Digital Walker, Digital Hub, Power Mac Center, and Astrovision.
