Urbanears Launches New Headphones Made From Trash

The next step towards a more sustainable brand.


Swedish audio lifestyle brand Urbanears is announcing the release of their true wireless headphones Urbanears Boo in two different models, made from 97% and 91% recycled plastics (bottles, air conditioner units and other junk). Dropping on April 12, the new headphones mark the beginning of a new era as the brand is in the making for a better-sounding future. Urbanears aims to become fully circular and climate neutral by 2030. 

Urbanears Boo introduces two, more sustainable alternatives to the audio market. With the launch of the new headphones, Urbanears wants to inspire the audio electronics industry to move towards a better-sounding future and place development and sustainability at its core. By committing to sustainability in every part of their business, Urbanears wants to focus on inclusion, equality, and transparency. 

Urbanears Boo is characterized by a clean and minimalistic design with a wide range of technical improvements. To ensure a comfortable listening experience, tailored to preference, the new headphones will be offered in two different models - Urbanears Boo made from 97% recycled plastics and Urbanears Boo Tip from 91%. Both models come in three colors — Charcoal Black, Almost Green and Slightly Blue. 

Urbanears Boo & Boo Tip are launching on April 12 at Urbanears.com with a retail price of $80.
