Sennheiser’s URBANITE XL Goes Wireless At CES

The German audio company  is introducing a new wireless version of its Urbanite headphone range at the Consumer Electronics Show 2015. Sennheiser’s new URBANITE XL WIRELESS headphones add Bluetooth and NFC to the Urbanite range.


“With the Sennheiser URBANITE series, we’ve created a range of headphones that deliver an emotional, powerful club sound on the move. But the generation of Millennials knows more and demands more. Now we can offer the URBANITE design including wireless freedom. With the new Urbanite XL Wireless, they can take their bass-driven sound easily anywhere, with effortless wireless connectivity, incredible battery life, and touch control for supreme ease of use. There are no more compromises between style and sound: Anyone who wants to show their ears some love will choose the Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless.” – Dr. Christian Ern, Director Product Management Consumer, Sennheiser Communications A/S.

The Urbanite Xl Wireless deploys wireless technologies to deliver sound and ease of use. The latest apt-X® codec is used to deliver clear, CD-quality sound. And set up is with NFC, which allows easy Bluetooth pairing to NFC-compatible devices or by bringing the headset into close proximity. Use of the latest Bluetooth 4.0 standard enables multi-connectivity – pairing with up to eight different devices as well as simultaneous connections to two devices, which makes it possible to link the Urbanite Xl Wireless to – for example – a smartphone and computer at the same time and can deliver an impressive 25 hours of playback.


The Sennheiser Urbanite Xl Wireless includes an intuitive, touch control panel on the right ear cup that makes it possible to adjust the volume and skip to the next track by sliding a finger across the panel or tapping it. Touch controls can also be used to receive and make calls on a connected phone. Touch control is enhanced by voice prompts that provide all necessary information about the status of the headphones. Crystal clear sound quality is ensured by dual microphones within the ear cups that continuously monitor ambient noise to dynamically cancel out external interference for clearer speech. A universal detachable cable is also supplied with an integrated remote and microphone for controlling the music and taking calls on the move.
