As the onslaught of true wireless earbuds continue to hit the market, we get a chance to rock out with Urbanista’s Stockholm Plus. As they have various tiers of true wireless earbuds these would be their least expensive and are eyeing those on a budget. Are they worth your dollars?
Soon as I took them out the box, I was impressed by the material of the charging case. It is a slight matte finish which also transfers over to the earbuds as well. Case is super compact and practically light as a feather. Also, the earbuds themselves practically don’t have any weight to them. Case uses Type-C to charge, has LED battery indicators and a sync/reset button inside.
Urbanista was nice enough to send over the rose gold cover way. They are also available in four additional colors.

Stockholm Plus are rated IPX4 so if getting caught in the rain or working out some you should be okay. Earbuds utilize touch controls to change songs and pump up the volume with either taps or holds. They are very responsive to the touch. Voice assistants such as Google and Siri work with them. I have tried w/ Google asking for the weather forecast or playing a music track.
Battery is touted at 20+ hours with you getting 3.5 hours per charge. I can’t really recall charging these up, so battery life seems to be about correct. Connection has been on point as they use Bluetooth 5.0. I mainly used the Stockholm Plus with a OnePlus 8 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.
Sound / Experience
Giving them a run through on various songs, I have to say they do a decent job in the Mids department with vocals sounding clear. They might be a bit lacking in the bass area for some that want slightly more thump in their music diet though. Also, the louder they get I feel like audio can get a bit scratchy.
Wearing them for long periods, I have not experienced much discomfort. This can contribute to how light they are but also the material they are covered in. Typically, these “pipe style” earbuds without a silicone tip will start to hurt for me after a while but these haven’t. Kudos to Stockholm for that.
Stockholm Plus is a cool pair of earbuds if you need to pickup something quick and play some tunes with. I feel like they shine with their super compact but minimalistic style accompanying that matte finish. Touch controls are responsive and google assistant runs smoothly. I would have liked to see some silicone tips and maybe an app for EQ adjusting.
