Urbanears's first true wireless earbuds Luma and Alby are now available in SG

Urbanears Alby.

Swedish audio brand Urbanears just brought its first pairs of true wireless earbuds - the Luma and the Alby - to Singapore. In its official announcement, the new Urbanears buds are said to be named after two locations within Stockholm.

Like most true wireless buds, both the Luma and Alby come in the standard bud-like form factor, complete with silicone ear tips of three different sizes, a charging case, and a compatible USB Type-C charging cable. Both models wirelessly connect via Bluetooth 5.0.

In case you're wondering, both variants are quite similar, although the Luma has IPX4-rated water resistance and up to 25 hours of playback. The Alby isn't IP-rated, and it packs 15 hours of playback instead. Also, the Luma offers a Wear Detect sensor that automatically pauses a song when it's not worn, and each Luma bud packs dual microphones for voice calls. The Alby doesn't have that sensor for playback and uses single microphones instead.

TC Acoustic officially distributes Urbanears's latest buds. You can find them at the official TC Acoustic website (AlbyLuma). Both the Urbanears Alby (S$109) and Luma (S$149) comes in four colours (Teal Green, Charcoal Black, Ultra Violet, Dusty White).
