URBANEARS AND NTS COME TOGETHER FOR THE RETURN OF THE ICONIC ZINKEN HEADPHONES, DESIGNED FOR DJ’S.
Urbanears announces the comeback of their most iconic headphones, Zinken, tailored specifically for the dynamic world of DJ culture and those who dare to colour outside the lines. A style first launched in 2012, Urbanears Zinken returns with updated and improved sound, a longer lasting finish and is made using recycled plastics*.
Every detail matters when you’re flipping records and producing music. The comfortable on-ear construction isolates from outside noise and reinforced metal hinge collapsibility makes them a versatile companion in the club and everyday life. What really makes Zinken standout from the competition is the reversible TurnCable that links you directly to your mixer so there is zero latency or connection drop-out and eliminates the use of an adapter.
At the heart of Zinken’s innovation is a commitment to delivering sound as it is meant to be heard. Urbanears’ acoustic team works collaboratively with DJs, engaging in a physical tuning process. The result is a precision-powered audio experience with a high level of clarity, and a perfectly balanced sound profile, even amid the loudest club environments.
Since its first launch in 2012, Zinken has built up quite the following in the DJ community, among them legendary German DJ and Producer Sven Väth.
“Zinken have been my go-to headphones for years, they’re sturdy, straightforward and have a sleek, minimalist design. What sets them apart is how snug the ear cups fit to block out external noise giving me great balanced sound, perfect for mixing. They are not just a tool, but an indispensable companion in my DJ journey.” says Sven Väth, German DJ and Producer.
To celebrate the launch, Urbanears has partnered with global music platform NTS, to coincide with the relaunch of the brand’s iconic Zinken headphones. Launching this November, the campaign tells the story of three talented DJs and their individual creative processes. Featuring Marcel Dettmann (world-renowned resident DJ at the Berghain nightclub in Berlin), Moxie (dance music powerhouse and one of London’s most in-demand DJ’s and radio hosts) and Fauzia (longtime NTS resident producer, vocalist and DJ), the campaign provides a glimpse into a day-in-the-life of each DJ, documenting their inspirations, creative process, and how their Urbanears Zinken headphones act not only as a tool for music creation but as an element of self-expression.
“We’re psyched to partner with Urbanears on a story about such an iconic headphone. Zinken has been used by an amazing list of well-known DJs past and present, and we really wanted to highlight this to our global community of music fans.” Says Sean McAuliffe, CEO NTS.
Urbanears Zinken launches 29th November, available globally on www.urbanears.com retailing at £89.99.
*53% of Zinken consists of plastic, of which 87% is recycled (excluding plastic in electronic components).
