Urbanista has long produced relatively faceless headphones that they named after cities. So Seoul, London, Miami, Lisbon and Stockholm Plus appeared in the assortment. But then the company released a full-size Los Angeles model and seems to have found its zest: headphones with solar panels that extend the life of a single charge.

The Phoenix Wireless Headphones are in-ear headphones with Active Noise Canceling. On a single charge, the headphones can work up to 8 hours, and the charging case provides another 32 hours of listening to music. The main feature of Phoenix is ​​the solar panel built into the case that recharges the device. An hour in sunlight gives an extra hour of work.

The earphones can also be charged in the usual way, for this the case has a USB-C port. The Phoenix is ​​also equipped with an IPx4 waterproof standard, which ensures sweat protection during intense workouts. Startup representatives emphasize that the headphones support Bluetooth 5.2. Phoenix is ​​also equipped with a microphone system that helps the user to hear what is happening around. Headphones can be connected to two devices at the same time. For example, to a smartphone to answer calls and to a laptop to listen to music.

Headphones have several obvious drawbacks. For example, a huge case. In addition, effective charging from light will only be when the headphones are in the open sun. Technically, the case will be charged while you are indoors. But the efficiency will be much lower. On the other hand, the case has a special loop for a neck strap, so the question of finding the case in the sun seems to be closed.

Among other characteristics, it is worth noting the possibility of conventional charging via Type-C, a connection according to the Bluetooth 5.2 standard, moisture protection according to IPX4 class, and active noise reduction.

Phoenix sales will begin in the fall of 2022. Headphones will be available in black and pink. The price will be $149.
