The new Kinivo URBN Bluetooth stereo headphones are a welcome alternative to earbuds.
Sleek, with soft faux-leather padding at the pivoting 2-by-3-inch rectangular earpieces and at the crown, the 1 1/4 -inch-wide headband glides smoothly over the top of your head.
The controls for pairing, listening to music, switching tracks, and answering and disconnecting calls are on the bottom front rim of the headpiece; volume and power controls are on the back rim.
The sound is rich, the range surprisingly full and crisp for the price. The headphones come in a bright candy apple red or subdued gray or black.
Info: Kinivo URBN Bluetooth stereo headphones cost $99.
