As far back as i can remember i always watched movies (who can forget the Beverly Hills Cop, Baywatch and many other blockbusters of the 80's) with gorgeous women running at the beach in their tight gym outfits or bathing suits while listening to their favorite music using the quite famous back then SONY Walkman cassette players. In real life however and more particularly where i live (can't really speak about other places) that trend took almost 3 full decades to get here and so it wasn't until 3-4 years ago that i started seeing people do the same this time however the then classic Walkman has naturally been replaced with smartphones and MP3/4 players. No matter however how many new headsets we see get introduced into the market each day we don't really see anything unique in terms of design and for people who actually want to feel well with themselves while wearing them out in the open design and appearance does play a significant role. So to cater to those needs today we will be taking a closer look at the ET-ARHP300FS-BK Urban Zen Headphones by Eagle Tech.

When designing the Urban Zen Headphone line Eagle Tech took a whole different path and focused mostly on their appearance so they hired a well-known designer based in San Francisco (Martin Hsu) to draw specific artwork for each of the 5 available headphones available currently in that line. Specs-wise Eagle Tech decided to use 40mm alnico alloy drivers featuring a frequency response of 20Hz to 20KHz and 105dB sensitivity (+-3dB) with 32Ohm (+-4Ohm) impedance. Now although i think that a 50mm driver would offer a lot more in terms of bass (clarity also) i do understand the size limitations they had to work with and so the specifications list is actually quite good. Specifications however are not the only thing that matters in headphones and sometimes numbers are just that so let's take a closer look and see just how they perform.
