plattanIntroducing Re:Plattan – the fourth headphone to be launched under the Urbanears Editions line of headphones. Re:Plattan is available at select Urbanears retailers worldwide and online at starting today for $80.

Urbanears Editions are special models with a little something extra. The Re:Plattan uses a lot extra in the form of unused parts from previous collections. These leftover parts come together to form one colorful patchwork pair of headphones. In addition, each Re:Plattan comes with the GPS coordinates of five square meters of rainforest in Costa Rica that’s protected with purchase, because we like jaguars too.

How It Works
Each Pax has a personal ID that comes with GPS coordinates. Trace your Pax by going to and using the personal ID printed on the hand tag.

Did You Know?
Every five square meters of saved vegetation contains about 500 kilograms of CO2 – that means one Pax stops approximately half a ton of carbon dioxide that never reaches the atmosphere, contributing to a more stable climate. On those five square meters, you can find approximately 500 ants, 10 flowers, 5 spiders, 2 butterflies, 5 shrubs, trees, monkeys, birds, frogs and maybe even a jaguar – if you’re lucky.

More about Plattan
The Plattan is designed to be the perfect classic headphone, utilizing innovative functions and performance with today’s technology. It is a full size headphone allowing for rich, secluded sound. You can fold it down to the size of your fist for maximum mobility. Plattan also comes with a ZoundPlug on the earcap, allowing for a friend to plug in and enjoy your music.
