Spice Up Your Commute With These Hot Headphones

Whether you're on the subway, rockin' out at the office, or booking it down Broadway, you'd have to be seriously introspective not to notice that most NYC denizens shut out the city noise with some headphones plugged resolutely into their ears. But, we're kinda sick of seeing the same plain white Apple buds providing auditory relief to everyone from skaters to stockbrokers. We know that like us, you like to inject a lil' personality in everything you wear, which is where these new Plattan headphones from Urbanears come in. You already get that we love the brand, but now they're totally updated with even better sound quality, hinge construction (allowing them to fold down to a fraction of their size), and a Zound patented plug that lets your friend plug-in to your earcap and listen to the same thing you're jammin' to. Plus, the drool-worthy summer colors like ocean, salad, purple, and red, mean we'll definitely stand out on our morning commute. Plus, we're hooking you up so you can make some waves too—just check out our swe-et giveaway.
We want to share the love of the Plattan headphones with one lucky reader. Comment on this story with 3 of your all-time favorite morning commute songs and why, and the freshest response wins a pair of these stylish headphones in Ocean. We'll announce the winnter tomorrow at 4p.m. via twitter and on our Facebook page.
