Urbanears Medis Earphones Won’T Hurt Your Ears or Your Pockets

 |  |  |  |  |  |  June 17, 2010


In-ear earphones are great at blocking outside noise and usually fit snugly inside the ears, but I don’t like using them because after only a few minutes of putting them on, my ears start to hurt. Urbanears claims to have developed in-ear earphones that don’t involve pain or pressure. They’re called Medis, and they work by anchoring themselves to two separate points of the ears.

Let me give you a detailed explanation: As you can see in the diagram below, the Medis attaches to the upper and lower thingies of the outside ear, rather than being jammed into the inner thingie. Awesome.

Like other in-ear earphones, the Medis comes with four pads of different sizes (for the part that attaches to the upper thingie of the ear) to ensure a good fit. It has 15.4-mm handmade drivers, 20-20,000Hz frequency response, 32Ω impedance, 94dB sensitivity, and a maximum input power of 50mW. All nice, even numbers. Anyway, they also come with a built-in mic and remote control that will work with popular smartphones like the iPhone, and ones made by Nokia, Blackberry and HTC.

Medis comes in 12 colors. I only took a shot of the 9 that I liked. You can order them (and see the 3 remaining colors) at Urbanears for €50 (approx. $62 USD). Or not – apparently they’re all sold out right now, but that’s a good sign right?
