Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless Headphones ($149.95 US, ~ $220 AU Incl. Shipping) from Amazon

100

From reviews I've seen, these headphones are some of the best in their price range, and with Sennheiser you can't really go wrong. Some of the features include:

  • Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity
  • 25 hours of music playback
  • Touch panel for music controls
  • 2 year warranty

Normally, these seem to go for around $500 in stores (JB Hifi, Harvey Norman), so if you don't mind the shipping, this is more than half the price off. If anyone has a pair of these, I would love to hear what you think about them in the comments!

I've bought a pair myself and thought I'd share with you, and hopefully I can post an update when they arrive!

    I bought these last year. Overall quite positive.

    Good
    Battery life is pretty exceptional
    Comfort is very good
    Sound is very good (to my untrained ear)
    Keep your ears warm in winter

    Bad
    They are BIG and reasonably heavy but ok once you get used to it
    My ear pieces come off.
    They are hot to wear in summer.

    Would I buy them again? Yes, at the price listed above but not at full price.

      Got a pair sitting next to me on my desk at work - can back up all these points. Found the actual earpads to be quite small though, if you've got big ears these might be annoying.

      Sliiightly above their cheapest price (managed to get them for $180) but definitely one of the better choices out there

        +1. I picked them up at HN for $230 a while back and glad I did. They do feel a bit heavy compared to QC35's but I love the extra bass.

        Before I bought them I tried a pair on at JB and they were small, the earpiece didn't cover my ear so I was worried about buying them but figured at that price I'd live with it. The pair I ended up buying fit perfectly over my ear which was weird.

          Glad to hear the positives and negatives about the headphones :) Seems like, for the price, they are definitely worth it. Here's hoping mine arrive with some decent ear pieces.

          I will also be using these for work. What's the comfort like on these?

    AMAZING FIND! I spent several hours testing headphones last week and these were the pair I really wanted but couldnt justify the price. I have been looking around for a second hand pair but everyone sellgin them were selling for 300 used without a receipt! Just ordered and owe you one :)

      No problemo! I've been searching for a while but couldn't find these specific headphones to test. Was going to go with Beats, but I'm glad that I've gone with these after hearing that you really enjoyed listening to them :)

        I tried beats, while they also sounded good too I didn't like them as they were too plastic, they felt like a toy and felt really breakable. They are also way overpriced. These ones feel really nice, really solid. I don't think I will break them in a hurry which is what I need!

        and FYI Harvey Norman of all places has a great audio room with all headphones they sell available to test. I tried about 35 different pairs and these were one of my favs

      No worries! Hope these turn out to be a decent purchase! (Although, they're Sennheisers so we can pretty much count on it) :)
