Headphones From Reclaimed Wood Benefit Hard of Hearing Children

lstn_headphones

If the majority of music instruments (guitars, pianos, violins, drums… etc.) are made out of wood, why aren’t headphones?

That’s one of the founding principles of LSTN Headphones, the small Los Angeles-based company that creates sleek, unique headphones and earbuds made out of wood 2165aacd9454e33fcd6e0e7f4f678393that has been reclaimed from places such as furniture makers. The unused wood pieces are usually too small for a cabinet, but big enough for headphones and which would have otherwise been tossed into a landfill. According to LSTN Headphones, wood has better resonance then metal or plastic, using wood as the basis of their heaphones actually makes the music sound better.

What makes LSTN Headphones even more altruistic is that each time a pair of headphones or earbuds are purchased from the company, a child in a deaf school receives the gift of hearing.

How does this work? Partnering with global organization SoundSeekers, mobile clinics are taken into small a1f90faefade99f8ba5b7efca6f37da4villages throughout Southern and Eastern Africa and India, custom fitting hearing aids for children in deaf schools and treating them on the spot.

LSTN was started in the summer of 2012 by entrepreneur Bridget Hilton. Shortly thereafter the company was featured on the Today Show and on MTV – an amazing opportunity for a month old company!

As a hearing healthcare provider it’s difficult to tell someone to go out and buy a pair of headphones. But considering the benefits this company is providing to children all around the world … I think it sounds like a good idea to me!

Currently both the headphones and earbuds come in Ebony Wood, Cherry Wood and Beech Wood. The headphones sell for about $99.99 and the earbuds sell for about $49.99. For more information on the company or to buy a pair of headphones (and to help a needy child hear better), visit LSTN Headphones online today.
