Urbanears Stammen and Baggen
Urbanears is a well-known company and is popular for its colorful headphones. It has just entered Wi-Fi speaker arena and announced Wi-Fi speakers. It is branching out a new line of Wi-Fi speakers that have Google Chromecast built-in and also includes Bluetooth capabilities. The company is launching new speakers: Stammen priced at $350 and the Baggen costing $450. Both speakers will be available from March 30 through official website and select retailers.
Stammen incorporates two 3/4″ neodymium dome tweeters and a 4” woofer. It is intended for use in small to mid-sized spaces such as bedrooms and studio apartments. On the other hand, Baggen is suited for larger spaces like patios and open-floor-plan homes. It has two 2.5” full-range drivers and a 5.25” woofer. Both models come individually wrapped in an acoustically transparent fabric.
Just like other Urbanears headphones, these ones are also colorful. They look like colorful boxes and produce awesome sounding audio. The new lineup of Connected Speakers is available in six color variations: Vinyl Black, Plant Green, Concrete Grey, Goldfish Orange, Dirty Pink and Indigo Blue. They are almost the same speakers but in two different sizes.
The speakers feature a wide array of connectivity options such as Bluetooth, 3.5mm aux, Spotify Connect, Chromecast and AirPlay. These are integrated directly. They also feature multi-room solution for a combination of up to five Stammen or Baggen devices.
Quickly Launch Music
In addition to great connectivity, they have easy controls to switch between input modes and seven favorite Spotify playlists or internet radio station presets. This allows you to quickly launch the music without any need of making connections first.
They lack digital displays and instead opt for physical controls via two knobs on top panel. The speakers come with simple, two-knob control schemes. One handles volume control while the other one toggles between Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Aux input. The speakers are designed to be simple to use. An app is available to access advanced features such as speaker groupings, equalizer settings etc. In addition to configuring presets and speaker groups, the app will also allow users to tailor the accessory to their liking.
The company has also promised over-the-air updates for new features and connection possibilities.
