Urbanista Los Angeles

Urbanista Los Angeles Solar Powered ANC Headphones Review

Urbanista’s latest Los Angeles over-ear headphones are now available, offering a unique feature of solar-powered charging. These are the world’s first self-charging wireless headphones that are powered by Powerfoyle solar cell material.

Now, you might be wondering, “How is this powered? Do I need to be in the sun?” Urbanista has incorporated solar-cell material in the latest over-ear headphones, producing remarkable results. This technology can charge in any type of lighting, including indoors, making these headphones convenient to use for everyone.

Furthermore, the solar-powered battery life is extended, and incorporating eco-friendly technology into the product is innovative. The Los Angeles headphones can always charge from small amounts of light, eliminating the need for plugging them in, and they offer up to 80 hours of reserved power.


Drivers: 40 mm dynamic
Bluetooth version: 5.0
Codecs: SBC and AAC
Weight: 320g
Battery capacity: 750 mAh
Battery life: 50/80 hours ANC on/off

Controls and styling:

The primary controls are on the right-hand side ear cup. It’s simple to use, with power, Bluetooth pairing, audio volume, skip controls, and the ability to answer, end, or reject phone calls. The left ear cup features a USB-C input for charging (if required) and a control button whose function can be selected in Urbanista’s control app.

These headphones are extremely comfortable, with ample cushion padding on the ears and band. They are ideal for wearing for extended periods and do not move when exercising.

The Los Angeles headphones also offer Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, allowing you to connect to your other smart devices or, if you’re a gamer, to your PC, game console, or handheld device. Another neat feature is the on-ear detection, which automatically connects them to your smartphone when you put them on.

Noise cancellation and ambient modes:

The latest headphones from Urbanista offer both hybrid active noise cancellation (ANC) and ambient modes. The hybrid ANC drastically reduces unwanted background noise, allowing you to immerse yourself in whatever you’re listening to.

The ambient sound mode is ideal for still being able to listen to surrounding sounds while remaining aware of what’s going on around you. It’s perfect for the gym, walking, or public areas.

In my testing, the Los Angeles headphones provided a powerful, bold audio straight out of the box and with ANC on, I could really hear the bass. It’s important to note that the Urbanista companion app has limited functionality, available for both IOS and Android. However, for optimal results, I adjusted my audio levels within my smartphone’s settings.

Final thoughts:

The Urbanista Los Angeles headphones are ideal for those who are always on the go and never want to worry about charging their headphones. If you’re looking for something eco-friendly with outstanding battery life and something a little different with its solar-cell material, you should definitely check out the Los Angeles headphones, which are now available in Midnight Black or Sand Gold at JB Hi-Fi and other leading retailers.
