Review: Urbanears Kransen Earphones (in Coral)

Okay, it’s been a while since I last hosted a giveaway. This time, up for grabs is this Urbanears Kransen earphones in Coral. Thanks to Digits Trading for sponsoring this giveaway! πŸ™‚

Urbanears Kransen in Coral

To be honest, when I was checking out the box of these earphones, I thought it was just like other earphones. As soon as I opened the box and saw the ear buds, I got curious.

Urbanears Kransen's angled ear buds for maximum comfort

At first, I was weirded out by the angled ear buds. I made sure to use the correct one for the right ear ’cause I’m particularly sensitive when it comes to using in-ear earphones like this. I wasn’t sure how they’ll fit me, but I was surprised that they were comfortable. In fact, I had it on for more than 30 minutes, and my ears didn’t hurt at all. Usually, I can only go for 15 minutes or so before I feel soreness or pain in my ears, but this time, I didn’t feel anything but comfort. πŸ™‚

Listening to my favorite songs using the Urbanears Kransen earphones

Another good thing about the angled, ergonomic ear buds is they don’t easily fall off your ear. Don’t get me wrong, you can remove them smoothly, but the shape helps keep them anchored in your ear.

 

Sound Quality

The bass isn’t as crisp as I wanted. But Kransen makes up for this with clear sound, and no distortion even at the maximum volume. I enjoyed listening at full volume and it didn’t mess up the sound and clarity of the songs on my playlist (Beyonce, Katy Perry, Jason Derulo, Ellie Goulding, etc) even for a bit. Cool for a set of earphones at this price range, if I may say. πŸ™‚

 

Microphone / Remote

The microphone and remote enable you to answer calls and talk hands-free. When listening to music, all you need to do is press once to pause/play, twice to go to the next song.

One minor thing I didn’t like about the mic/remote is it’s positioned way too close to the earphones, so it ends up in front of my mouth. I prefer it to be a li’l farther down the cord. πŸ˜€ Yeah, we’ve arrived at the nitpicking part of the review. πŸ˜›

 

Additional Features

Kransen’s cord is slightly stiff compared to most of the earphones I’ve reviewed in the past. This helps prevent the cord from getting all tangled up when you keep it in your pocket or your bag. It’s also easier to unknot when you’re ready to use it.

If you’re a neat freak, you’d be glad to know that Urbanears Kransen comes with a CableLoop so you can keep the cord wrapped and secure. The earbuds also have this SnapConstruction feature that allows you to connect them back to back so you won’t have a hard time finding them, or you can even hang the whole thing around your neck. Nice features, eh? πŸ™‚

Neat freaks will love the CableLoop and SnapConstruction

The Kransen Coral includes 3 sizes of ear buds that you can use and interchange, depending on how fitted you want it in your ear. I used the medium ear pads.

    Human by Christina Perri because everytime I listen to this song, I realize that it is normal for the humans to have flaws, to fall, to feel pain.

  • Punky

    I could listen to “Stolen” by Dashboard Confessionals forever if given a choice. Actually it’s on my “Get Happy” playlist since it was released 7 years ago. I have loved it for it’s melody and for what the lyrics conveys. The melody is both waltzy and rock which is almost something you can imagine hearing as a soundtrack of a feel good indie movie. I’ve also always imagined this song as being the song a rocker couple would first dance to on their wedding. Also, nostalgia plays a big part because it reminds me of good ol’ college road trips. I can still remember my friends car wherein we all open our windows in C5 and we shout our hearts out singing to each and every word of the lyrics after exams week. The words “one good stretch before our hibernation” always sounds fitting to one’s eardrums (no matter how in tune or not) after knowing you’ve worked hard and well for something.

    This is the last song I want to hear…
    “Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)” — GreenDay

    Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road

    Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go

    So make the best of this test, and don’t ask why

    It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time

    It’s something unpredictable, but in the end that’s right,

    I hope you had the time of your life.

    So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind

    Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time

    Tattoos and memories and dead skin on trial

    Through what it’s worth it was worth all the while

    It’s something unpredictable, but in the end that’s right,

    I hope you had the time of your life.

    Why? I just feel accomplished and fulfilled when listening to this song. The lines, “So make the best of this test, and don’t ask why” and “Through what it’s worth it was worth all the while” just hit the spot. This will be the last song I want to hear because it sends me the message that I did great in this world no matter what! πŸ˜€
