Despite its compact design, the Brisbane Urbanista is a full-featured phone, with features such as a 720p display, a front-facing camera, and a 5-megapixel camera on the back. It’s also compatible with aptX and AAC, making it a great option for music lovers. In addition, the battery lasts for about 10 hours, which is a big plus.

Mid-range audio comes out very well
Whether you’re a fan of wireless music or wired audio, Urbanista has a range of audio solutions that will fit your fancy. They also happen to be quite affordable.
The Urbanista Brisbane Wireless Speaker is the company’s flagship Bluetooth speaker and it’s a pretty good one at that. Its dual 52mm 10W drivers deliver a punchy sound and aren’t slowed down by much distortion. A splash proof 8000mAh battery keeps it charged for 10 hours of constant playback. The battery also provides a solid 90 days of standby time.
The Urbanista Brisbane also has a micro-USB port for charging. It’s a relatively light 2.2 pounds, and you can move it about with one hand. It is also splash proof and has a good ten meter working range.
Easy Bluetooth pairing
Despite its small size, the Urbanista Brisbane Bluetooth speaker packs a punch. The speaker offers impressive sound quality and a 10-meter working range. The speaker also has a micro-USB charging port. Its 5,000mAh battery can last up to 10 hours of uninterrupted playtime. Its IPX5 rating means it can handle light moisture and can be used outside.
The Brisbane speaker also has four simple buttons. The buttons are made of raised rubber material. They also feature an LED status indicator. The Bluetooth 5.0 onboard supports the fancy-pants device and allows it to pair with a second Brisbane speaker for stereo sound.
Among the other features of the Brisbane, the Bluetooth 5.0 onboard is a good thing, as it is an impressive feat of engineering. The Brisbane can output 32 watts when paired with a second unit. The device is also compatible with iOS and Android devices.
10 hour battery life
During the IFA conference in October, Urbanista announced its new wireless speaker, the Brisbane. It has two x 52mm 10W drivers. It’s splash-proof and has an 8000mAh battery that will last for 10 hours of constant playback. It also features passive radiators that increase the bass frequency.
Urbanista is known for low-cost, good-sounding speakers. The Brisbane Bluetooth speaker is one of the company’s top models. It’s available in two colours: white and black. It comes with Bluetooth 5.0 and offers a 10-meter working range. It also features a stereo pairing function.
The Brisbane’s mid-range audio complements the robust bass. Its low impedance allows for a high volume output. Its two 10W drivers provide confident sound quality. The speaker comes with a micro-USB charging port and a 90-day standby time. It’s also IPX5 rated for water resistance.
Compatible with aptX
aptX is a Bluetooth audio codec that offers high-resolution audio. Many of the latest smartphones support aptX. You can test to see if your Android device is compatible with aptX. You can find this setting under the developer options menu.
The aptX codec family has four main types: aptX HD, aptX Low Latency, aptX Adaptive, and APT-X adaptive. Each has its own advantages. The aptX HD codec transmits 24-bit hi-res audio over Bluetooth. The aptX Low Latency codec uses a dedicated wireless antenna to reduce latency. The aptX Adaptive codec supports wireless audio up to 96kHz.
AptX is a standard Bluetooth codec, but it is not the same as the standard SBC codec. Compared to SBC, aptX offers a much lower latency.
In addition to providing a high-res audio experience, aptX is also designed to ensure excellent sound quality for calls. Bluetooth audio technology is built into many consumer electronics products, including phones, headphones, and music streamers. Some smartphones disable aptX by default, but most phones support it. If your phone does not support aptX, you can manually enable it by going into the Bluetooth settings in your Android device’s developer menu.
Compatible with AAC
Currently, AAC is supported by Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. It is also supported by select BlackBerry OS devices. But the performance of the format varies significantly between smartphones.
If you are using an Android smartphone, you might want to consider using a different codec. If you are trying to save battery life, you might choose to use a lower bit rate implementation. However, these implementations are nowhere near CD quality when it comes to noise and frequency response.
Another popular audio format is Windows Media Audio. These formats can be imported into most multimedia applications, and are compatible with AAC.
AAC has a number of features that make it more attractive than MP3. Its audio algorithms exceed previous compression algorithms in many ways. In particular, its use of a longer window length for transients and signal changes increases coding efficiency.
