Comments Off on Proceeds from LSTN’s Reclaimed Wood Headphones Go to Help Restore Hearing in Children in Deaf Schools

In the market for a new pair of headphones? Before you reach for those overpriced Beats by Dr. Dre (which are also made in China), consider wrapping your ears in a pair of LISTN’s gorgeous reclaimed wood headphones that also do good for the world. Ditching conventional synthetics, LISTN Headphones harness the acoustic properties of wood to create sounds as pure as those that come straight from a guitar, piano or violin. Each pair is individually handcrafted from reclaimed wood , and best of all, for every pair of LSTN Headphones sold, the company will  donate proceeds from the purchase to one of their charity partners for the deaf  — meaning one child with hearing loss receives medical attention and a custom fit hearing aid on your behalf. Purchase LSTN’s earbuds, on-ear headphones, or get a pair of their brand new Troubadour over-ear model (seen above) at  www.lstnheadphones.com . + LSTN Headphones Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: cool headphones , eco friendly headphones , green electronics , green technology , high quality headphones , LSTN headphones , reclaimed wood headphones , wood earbuds , wood headphones

But don’t worry; Stern isn’t entirely serious about wearing the thing. Instead, she views it as “a fun commentary on how attached and concentrated on technology we are, and to highlight the lack of movement that happens when we’re engrossed in our laptops, keyboards, PDAs, etc.” READ MORE > Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: Becky Stern , Compubody , computer hood , computers , DIY , ecouterre , instructables , knitting , laptop computer sock , yarn
