Summary: There was a lot of promise to the Urbanears Medis. Above all else, it promised comfort and function. As stated above, the first experience with inserting the Medis was as advertised: A quick, easy process that was as unobtrusive as you'd want wearing earbuds to be. However, they were only comfortable while untouched; once removed, it became clear that there was, in fact, some pressure being applied to keep them from falling out that was to end up causing pain in the...
Pros: Unique Construction, Fabric Cord, Clear, Even Sound, Color Choice
Excerpt: Urbanears Medis Review With the Urbanears Medis, style and comfort come first. Everything from the packaging, to the earbuds, down to the cloth-like cable shows that this was made to appeal to a younger audience.
Excerpt: Medis is a district of Stockholm, Sweden, located at exactly N 59º 18’ 54.46” by E 018º 04’ 20.91”. How do I know this? It’s written on the outside of the Urbanears Medis earphone’s box. And why is the location of Medis on the box? That’s just the way Urbanears does things.
Summary: For testing these earphones we plugged them into an Audigy X-Fi Notebook card on my Lenovo T410 laptop as well as directly into the multi-function jack on this as well. We also tried out the iPod Touch and a HTC Nexus One phone. We were able to test them out on several devices and get a good overall impression of how they sound – both earphones and microphone.
Pros: Lots of adapters in the bundle, Interchangeable pads, Comfortable, Sleek integrated microphone and button
Cons: Microphone has no “mute” switch for PC application, No in-line volume control, Ear-pieces don’t fit very well in my ears and allow a lot of bass leakage, Mediocre audio performance.
Urbanears Medis Headphones Review for iPhone and iPod Touch
7 August 2010
Excerpt: I know from past experience, that Urbanears offers the most durable, stylish, and well made headphones up to date for an affordable price. The cheapest pair that are available, the Medis even being only a a pair of earbuds truly provide optimal sound quality, and are always bright!
Conclusion: Overall an uninspiring pair of earphones, and throughout the review you may have recognised my constant comparisons to budget options such as the Radiopaq Dot earphones , as this is the quality I believe they deliver. However, when you consider the price is an astounding £44.99, you will no doubt be as appalled as I am even though they are available in a variety of colours, perhaps you’d be better off waiting for Sony’s ‘Designed for iPod’ earphones .
Excerpt: Der Urabnears liefet beim Sound-Test eine solide Vorstellung ab. Von einem In Ear in dieser Preisklasse erwartet der Kunde ein angenehmes Klangerlebnis, das gilt sowohl für Musik als auch für Sprache. Auch wenn der Medis kein Genuss für Klangpuristen ist, reicht er für den alltäglichen Einsatz am Smartphone vollkommen aus. Umgebungsgeräusche werden übrigens nicht vollständig eliminiert, andere Verkehrsteilnehmer können noch wahrgenommen werden.
Pros: Leicht zu verstauen, Ausgewogenes Klangbild, Kopfhörer verfügt über ein Mikrofon, Große Farbvielfalt verfügbar
Cons: Schlechte Verarbeitung, Lieferumfang zu klein, Fernbedienung nicht vorhanden
