Maybe it's a rule of thumb that Scandinavian design companies produce products that are strictly clean, simple and functional (hi, Ikea), and these new headphones from Stockholm design collective Urbanears are no exception. They come in three styles: Plattan (a classic stereo 'phone that folds down to the size of a fist), Tanto (an updated 80s walkman-style) and Medis, an earbud with a fabric cord.
I'm now the owner of the Plattan, which comes with a cool "Zound Plug" feature, a hole on the ear cap so your mates can plug in and share your music. The coolest part? They come in 14 Pantone-esque colors. I'm rocking the black, but I'm sooo coveting a pair in white, red or chartreuse. Check out their design-y website.
