Traditional audio brands are often the slowest to adapt to trends, and we’re only now starting to see super-fashionable headphones in the same vein as the now-ubiquitous Beats By Dre. But those brands bring with them years and years of audio experience, and there are few companies with the history behind them of Sennheiser. The German audio powerhouse’s new Urbanite XL headphones are taking the fight to Beats, Bose and the rest of the young, hip over-the-ear headphone crowd.
