Excerpt: Review: Urbanears Tanto Headphone Urbanears is a lifestyle audio brand from Sweden that specializes in headphones that look chic, sound great, and offer value for money. I’ve pretty much tried all of their products and one of my favorites is their on-ear lightweight cans, the Tanto.
Excerpt: Urbanears is a Scandinavian design collective based out of Stockholm, Sweden whose mission, it would seem, is to build sleek headphones that combine—in roughly equal parts—chic Nordic industrial designs, genuinely high-quality sound, and absolutely killer value for money.
Excerpt: While we do review a lot of headphones, it is only once in a while that we come across something that exemplifies simplicity such as the Urbanears Tanto. This headset from the Swedish manufacturer looks simple, but we found out that looks can be deceptive as its performance managed to impress us.
Pros: Excellent sound; Loud and distortion-free performance; Light and comfortable; Available in multiple colours; Inline remote.
Cons: Build quality not very assuring; Ear sponge gets dirty and discoloured fast.
Summary: Tanto er små, pæne hovedtelefoner med åben konstruktion og leverer lyd derefter. Luftig og åben med en diskant, som lige akkurat holder sig på den rigtige side af grænsen til ikke at blive for påtrængende. Bassen er imidlertid ikke helt i top, så nogen rockhovedtelefoner er det ikke.
