It seemed serendipitous that LSTN Headphones recently got in touch with me, as I’ve got a bit of a thing for reclaiming wood for tech, while I’ve been dealing with some failing headphones this month. The LA company passed along a pair of their vintage-inspired Troubadour headphones, made of real, reclaimed exotic wood that is sourced from furniture and flooring manufacturers. Sonically, they’re full of great sound plus I don’t have to worry about tangling my cords. But I was drawn to this company for their commitment to giving back, as proceeds from each pair help provide hearing aids to people in need through Starkey Hearing Foundation. So far, they’ve helped over 17,000 people hear around the world.
