LSTN Headphones are back with a new, sleek over-the-ear design and dynamic charity campaign.
The company out of L.A. has been salvaging wood from furniture companies around the world since 2012 to create cool, acoustically-sound and totally unique headphones and earbuds.
"We are huge supporters of eco-conscious business," said Zoya Biglary, LSTN's director of public relations. "These pieces of wood come from furniture companies around the world which would have otherwise thrown them away. As a result, we make beautiful, unique headphones without over-using resources. Win, win."
Aside from helping to save the environment, LSTN Headphones donates a portion of each sale to their charity partner – Starkey Hearing Foundation, which helps provide hearing aids to underprivileged children in deaf schools. "Our 'Giving back. Amplified.' program is very unique," Biglary said. "We love listening to music, so we were very sad to discover that 275 million people worldwide are hard of hearing and can't do so." Through their work with Starkey Hearing Foundation and with the help of everyone who purchases a set of LSTN Headphones, that number decreases daily.
Last week, the company introduced a new design to "display vintage-inspired aesthetics while providing a full over-ear headphone with unique, laminated cuts of wood. [It] is noise-cancelling, which is essential for many audiophiles." It's called the Troubadour and costs $150. The model is now available for pre-order in three varieties of wood.
