Final Thoughts

At $49 the Kransen’s are not the worst sounding earphone I have had the pleasure or displeasure of sticking into my ear. They are packaged in the usual Urbanears minimalist fashion with a reasonably durable looking build and easy to fit tips with above average isolation. Ultimately the Kransen wears it’s (orange!) colors with pride when matched with modern pop and dance genres and this whole audiophile nonsense is simply thrown out the window. They are clearly colored, basshead earphones but unusually for these consumer earphones that have a slightly forward midrange and vocal stage that at times allows the Kransen to tread out of it’s typecast with a minor degree of confidence.

    DO NOT BUY — 0 STARS

    A little after the first month I owned the left earbud started losing sound. It was barely noticeable at first, but it kept getting increasing faint. I used them infrequently and just said to myself “Meh, I guess I won’t buy Urbanears again because their soldering fails”.

    Then I thought, maybe it was just a one-off, let’s see how easy it is to deal with their warranty. I found out the hard way — their warranties aren’t worth the paper they are written on.

    Their customer service takes days to reply. Then, they ask for redundant information to try to get you frustrated. Worse yet, they just go dark and you have to say, “can you please give me an update”?

    At the end of all that hassle they still denied my warranty and offered me a 20% discount instead. Ah, thanks but no thanks.

    Bottom line — there are plenty of excellent headphones out there; it’s just that Urbanears doesn’t make any.
