These Retro Hardwood Headphones Give Back More Than Just Sound

These Retro Hardwood Headphones Give Back More Than Just Sound

This piece was written by the Cracked Shop to tell you about products that are being sold there.

Despite hundreds of years of innovation, world-class instruments are still made out of stupid, earth-grown wood. That's because wood knows what it's doing when it comes to reproducing sound, yet our headphones are all cheap plastic and metal. What's up with that? It's a conspiracy is what it is. Well, LSTN wasn't buying it, so they invented The Troubadour 2.0 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones.

These headphones are made from real zebra wood (that's a special stripey wood, not a zebra that's been turned into a tree by a witch), lending a sonic profile that beats out headphones that are twice the price. They're Bluetooth-compatible so you can stream from your laptop, phone, or other wireless device while the 40mm drivers and 32Ω impedance ensure crisp sound quality no matter what you're listening to. Wirelessly, they last for up to eight hours on a single charge while the built-in mic and control let you pick up calls, adjust the volume, and more on the go, but if you prefer wired, they support that, too. The wood housing provides excellent tonal balance with crisp highs and lows, all from sustainable materials, including a vegan leather headband. They're really serious about the zebras.

In fact, co-founders Bridget Hilton and Joe Huff are so committed to creating positive change through the power of sound and music that every LSTN purchase helps provide hearing aids to the deaf community through the Starkey Hearing Foundation. They've helped more than 30,000 people so far and counting, so supporting LSTN will make you feel pretty good, too.

Invest in some incredible-sounding headphones while giving back to the community. Normally $179, you can get The Troubadour 2.0 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones for 25% off at just $134.99 today. They're available in zebra or walnut.
