Why are guitars, violins, drums, pianos, etc made out of wood, but headphones aren't? Our unique wooden chambers are a huge contributor to the warm and natural sound of LSTN headphones.
LSTN is also environmentally friendly. We use sustainable, reclaimed wood whenever possible. The reclaimed wood we use is sourced from furniture and flooring companies. Specifically, it's the small otherwise discarded scraps that are left over from their manufacturing process.
Ebony - This dense, hard wood is prized for making piano keys, clarinets, oboes and even bagpipes. Ebony trees are found in Mozambique and Tanzania. The color of ebony wood ranges from dark brown to jet black.
Cherry - This beautiful wood is usually used in high end furniture and the tops of guitars. Our cherry wood is from Brazil. The color ranges from a deep orange to a dark red.
Beech- Our lightest wood is also used to make drums, smoke fine cheeses and is made into chips to aid in the beer brewing process. Mmm! You can find beech wood mainly in North America. The color does not stray from blonde/light brown.
Zebra - Imported from a tree native to Central Africa, Zebra wood is a very hard and visually stunning wood, zebra wood has been used for exotic decorative items ranging from custom furniture and wall paneling, to inlays for car companies such as Cadillac and Mercedes-Benz. It's even been used to make exotic guitars!
