Newly launched UK company Woodbuds ups the sustainability levels on the mobile audio game with these hardwood earphones. Made from sustainable plantation hardwood the design also features renewable bio-plastic cables and fully recyclable packaging. But the company's lofty green goals go beyond the design realm. From co-founder Chris Holmes:
Woodbuds was born from a passion to do something good, take a new approach, build a brand, and think differently. We now work alongside the Woodland Trust, to plant and protect our native woodland. So for every 100 products we sell we plant a tree.
The earphones are said to deliver an audiophile-friendly frequency response of 20 – 20,000Hz through a gold-plated 3.5mm connector. We have no idea what that means but it sounds good.
