Plenty of over-ear headphones sound great and are comfortable, but few look as good as the LSTN’s new wood-finished Troubadour cans. The earcups on these $150 headphones are made out of lacquered wood, while the nylon cable and brushed metal headband add to the distinctive, elemental design. These will definitely earn you a few admiring looks wherever you wear them.
They’re also exceptionally soft on the ears, and the slightly prominent low-end sound means they’ll help fend off all the noise that the outside world can throw at you.
An added bonus: The wood is reclaimed (no trees were harmed in the making of these headphones), and for every pair sold LSTN gives some of the proceeds to the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
