The new Urbanista "Los Angeles" over-ear Bluetooth headphones with active noise cancellation (ANC) have a novel way to extend battery life: solar cells built into the large headband. The company promises "virtually infinite playtime". One hour in sunlight adds three hours of usage, with slower charging on cloudy days or indoors. With enough light they can be charged by simply leaving them near a window. They can also be charged via USB-C. The headphones use a new solar cell material called Powerfoyle, from Swedish company Exeger. Urbanista has yet to open pre-orders but promises a price of £169 (around $200).
