I’ll admit that I’m not a headphone user. Those stupid earbuds that come with the iPhone always fall out of my ears. It’s not the design of the earbuds themselves, it’s just that my ears must be shaped weird. So when I’m running, I’m constantly putting them back in my ears until I finally say the Hell with it and take them out. And other ones feel like I’m shoving them way too far into my ear canal to be safe.
The only other time I listen to music is in my car, or if I’m sitting at my computer. However, if I was a headphone user I would use these reclaimed wood headphones by LSTN called Troubadours. I like the rustic natural look of them. In my opinion they’re a lot prettier than plastic. And because of the variance in wood grain each one will look a little different in appearance.
So the scoop on these babies, is that they are, like I said, made of Ebony, Cherry, Zebra or Beech reclaimed wood, with a plush ear cups. Plus they have unpluggable, wood enclosed, gold plated plugs.
And to help with possible buyer’s remorse because you spent your electric bill money on them, LSTN will donate a portion of each purchase to the non-profit Starkey Foundation.
Reviews are pretty positive. One reviewer state that the headphones are good quality with wonderful acoustics.
