Many popular wireless earbuds are competing for the best audio Grammy or the best ANC Oscar, but these running headphones focus on other (dare we say, equally important) aspects of workout headphones: battery life, fit, and call quality. Yes, the call quality is good. Anyone who has attended a Zoom meeting while running on a treadmill or hiking will agree.
The Urbanista Lisbon gives active people another affordable way to listen to music while working out or getting around a crowded subway station at rush hour. At less than $50/£50, these truly wireless earbuds are a good choice, especially in a time when prices are going up. They’re also a little bit different.

Then, they put all of that in a package that’s great for small ears and comes in bright colours, because it’s 2022 and modern, neutral colours are out and big, bold colours are in. They might not win the award for best sound, and they might not even have ANC or be waterproof. But the Urbanista Lisbon still wins in most other ways.

Urbanista Lisbon review: Design
Each Urbanista Lisbon earbud is less than an inch long and weighs less than a tenth of an ounce. This makes them a little hard to put on at first. You get used to it quickly, though, especially if you attach the silicone wings that can be removed and used as handles. The best thing about how small these earbuds are is that people with smaller ears can use them better.
This reviewer has always had trouble with earbuds being just a little too big, but that hasn’t been a problem here. In fact, these earbuds fit our ears perfectly, with the wings sitting comfortably inside the concha part of our ears to keep them in place without putting too much pressure on the cartilage.
So, the Urbanista Lisbon fit well and are easy to wear for long periods of time. One reason why they are great for working out is because of this. If only Urbanista had taken the time to improve its touch controls. Even though they’re a nice touch, they’re not the most responsive or easy to use. You can buy this earbuds from its official website.
Urbanista Lisbon review: Comfort
“The bill always comes due,” says Baron Mordo in the Marvel movie Doctor Strange. The sound quality of the Lisbon shows how this “open” style of earphones affects it. The Urbanista Lisbon might be a better choice for casual listeners because of its colourful personality, comfort, low price, and long battery life.
But because they don’t isolate you from the outside world, they can let in noises you don’t want to hear, and their thin sound and low volume make them hard to use unless you’re in a very quiet place.
Urbanista Lisbon review: Features
It’s very easy to set up the earbuds. You can open the case even if the earbuds are still inside. Then, open the Bluetooth settings on the device you want to pair it with. “Urbanista Lisbon” will come up. The connection is confirmed when you click that and wait a few seconds until you hear a voice say “Connected.”
We used this with both my iPhone and my HP laptop, and it was easy to switch between them. It can hold up to six devices that are paired. This comes with a charging cable that is a USB Type-C cable. A charging block can be used to make your earbuds last longer. The Urbanista Lisbon earbuds have a 9-hour battery life, but you can get up to 27 hours with the charging case.
We used these a lot for a few days and barely had to charge them. Also, they charge every time you put them in the charging case. So all that needs to be done is to charge the case. Also, they let you know 30 minutes before they die that they need to be charged by showing “low battery.”
Urbanista Lisbon review: Performance
Earphones with this kind of “open” design have a hard time because of how they are made. When there’s a lot going on, it’s hard to judge “loudness” because sound is shot into the ear instead of being absorbed by it. Because of these problems, the Urbanista Lisbon can’t give a strong performance.
Turn up the volume if you want to get off to a good start. It’s a waste of time to listen to music on public transportation because other sounds can drown out the music. The clean tone of Lisbon makes it prone to harshness and sibilance, so turning up the volume won’t help much.
Urbanista Lisbon review: Sound quality
Contrary to what most people think, not having sound insulation makes the sound worse, so you might have to turn up the volume when you drive through a construction site. As you’ve been told, going over 75 dB could cause permanent hearing loss, so don’t turn it up too high.
Isolation doesn’t help people who get vertigo because they wear headphones that block out a lot of sound or have active noise cancellation. As an added bonus, the open design lets you take your music with you on walks while still being able to hear what’s going on around you.
Urbanista Lisbon review: Price and availability
The sound quality is what we have come to expect from Urbanista, which is a complete sound with the top notes ringing out wonderfully. Despite the fact that the mid tone lacks a little depth, they are surely over performing for the price bracket they are in.
These are not intended for audiophiles, but then again, those individuals probably aren’t shopping in the £49 market. These are fantastic wireless earbuds to use on a daily basis, and the fact that they come in a variety of different colours is definitely a selling point. RRP £49.90
The Urbanista Lisbon to deliver outstanding performance. Obviously, but for roughly fifty euros, a little bit more may be expected, and certain nuances could be enhanced. These headphones, with their understated design, will be an excellent choice for you if you don’t want to cut yourself off from the rest of the world altogether.
There are headphones available at higher prices as well as headphones available at lower prices. These Urbanista Lisbon establishments continue to exist, to some extent, in the middling ground between greatness and mediocrity. They do not actually have a chance of failing, but we were not especially impressed by them. That wraps up everything in the electronic category.
- Impressive mic and call quality
- Snug fit
- Small and comes in adorable colors
- No bass
- No waterproofing or ANC
Are Urbanista earbuds good?
The feat in and of itself is astounding enough to win the headphones our TechX award; however, if they didn’t also have a pleasant sound, the prize wouldn’t mean as much to us. Fortunately, the headphones offer robust music with sculpted highs and deep bass, in addition to efficient active noise cancellation (ANC) for the low cost that they retail for.
How do you use Urbanista Lisbon?
While the earphones are still contained inside the charging case, the charging case should be opened so that the headphones can be connected to a Bluetooth device for the first time. The headphones will enter the pairing mode on their own automatically. You can connect by going into the Bluetooth settings on your device and selecting “Urbanista Lisbon.”
