When it comes to all things techy, we like our gadgets to score high marks in performance and design—and these earbuds stand out from the gray-scale pack. Made from reclaimed wood, the 100% electro-acoustic tested headphones pair superior sound quality with one-of-a-kind good looks. And, because each pair of headphones benefits a charity for the deaf, this is an accessory you can feel good about.
The wood in these ear phones makes the sound so much better and deeper! I am really surprised about how good the sound is from ear buds.5
I was so surprised when i got this in my box a few months back. I'm an ear bud junkie, i have several brands, and am always willing to try new ones out. These are absolutely amazing and worth the price. Not only are they a very sleek and modern design, their no tangle cord is really that.
I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to look the part, and also listen like the highest quality headphones.
I should really like these headphones, in fact I do like a lot of things about them but unfortunately problems starting from the first time I used them have sullied my impression.
Starting with the positive- the size, weight and shape of the cherry wood of the ear-buds are great and anti-tangle material of the wires is a nice touch. I like the inclusion of an inline play/pause button and that it (mostly) works with iOS so I can call up Siri as needed. The microphone seems to pick up my voice decently well so I've been able to make calls using this headset. I'm no audiophile but the sound is rich and impressive for the size and price range. I'd put it somewhere between the Apple Earpods and the Shure SE210's I used to have.
Onto the negatives- the 3.5 mm RCA (minijack) connector has a sort of L shaped bend designed into it, I wouldn't care about this design wise but I've foudn that even small amounts of pressure on the upright portion of the L will cause my phone to think the play/pause button is being pressed. So this means if I've got my phone in my pocket, the normal jostle of walking or bending down to pick things up will pull up Siri or cause the random play, pause or skip behavior on whatever I'm listening to. I'd understand this (though still be frustrated) if I'd had these earbuds for months or years, but this behavior occured as soon as I'd pulled them out of the packaging and tried them out.
The second major negative is the durability- in my experience- earbuds have a penchant for latching on to door handles, handlebars- practically any protruding object that might possibly be a snag. The first time such a snag occured for me, the earbuds were pulled out of my ears and fell to the ground. This has occured many times for me with other headsets- it's annoying but was never a probem. With these LSTN earbuds, the protrusion which the plastic ear insert sits on chipped off. The earbud is still usable but now the insert falls off easily.
If it weren't for the beformentioned durability and buggy behavior- these would be some of the better earbuds I've had. I'd be even happier with the inclusion an iOS compatible volume rocker- hint hint.
These sound and look pretty good, but they're missing the basic audio controls to skip to the next song etc, so compared to my default iPhone earbuds, they're kinda pointless.2
One of the best items I've received in a birchbox. Aesthetically speaking, these are great looking earphones. The cherry wood looks gorgeous and feels great. The nylon cord doesn't tangle easily and is longer than most earphone cables, which is quite useful. Functionally they do their job pretty well. The bass response from these isn't remarkable, but it's definitely better than my iphone earphones. They also come with a microphone and a play/pause button, which makes them a very competent replacement for your stock iphone earphones. All in all, I would recommend this product5
1) Looks awesome (the wooden look is pretty cool)
2) I like what the company supports - check out their website.
1) Fit - maybe I don't really like how regular earphones fit because I have been spoiled with earphones that mold into your ears... but fit is okay. At least it doesn't fall out of my ears.
2) Comfort - subpar.
3) Sound - Mediocre. I don't hear static noises, at least.
Overall thought: I think this is okay to purchase as a second set of earphones... it's a bit pricey for what it offers IMO.
I am a huge fan of anything wood. Such a classy look. The sound in the phones are amazing too. Little expensive but worth the sound & style.5
These earbuds are awesome. Fantastic sound and love the cord, as it does not get tangled. Use sometimes in place of my bose noise canceling headphones...5
I subscribed when these were being offered as a gift with purchase and thought why not? I was really skeptical about these, especially as a "free gift" (we all know free gifts are usually not so great quality) but WOW. I was immediately impressed by the packaging and design. There are 3 different ear piece covers included, a drawstring pouch, not to mention a beautiful design and look. Rich wood and I was really pleasantly surprised that the cord is heavy woven and not cheap, thin plastic that gets twisted and tangled easily. The quality is evident just holding them in your hand. So I thought no way they're going to sound good. Surprised again. Deep, rich, warm sound, not expected with ear buds. Actually hoping I can get them again to gift to my gf because I cannot part with these! Thanks, Birchbox!5
