Looking for a fresh pair of headphones? LSTN has a pair that might peak your interest. Besides helping restore hearing through Starkey Hearing Foundation, each pair of the Movember x LSTN collaboration headphones ($150) donates $50 directly to Movember. Each pair has glossy, gray finish and features the Movember logo engraved in both sides of the reclaimed wood cups. Listen to good music, save lives.
If you are unwilling to let anything but the finest lamb skin touch your ears, then look no further than the Aedle VK-1 Headphones ($325+). Finally, a pair of gorgeous headphones to rival Beats by Dr. Dre and anything Apple has ever made. After two years of design, these headphones are borderline works of art with genuine lambskin leather cushions and aircraft grade aluminum on the cups. Oh yeah, and they sound amazing too.
Another day, another successfully funded Kickstarter campaign: Jamboo Headphones ($30) are an easy upgrade from the standard white earbuds that came with your iPhone. These bamboo wood headphones have colorful hand-woven threads wrapping the cord, making you stand out and giving you the comfort of knowing that you won’t have to spend 20 minutes untangling next time you want to hear some jams.
Jeff Staple is no stranger to collaboration, which is why we were excited to hear that Staple Design is teaming up with Beats by Dr. Dre to issue these limited edition Staple x Beats By Dre Studio Headphones ($350, in-store only).

Every so often we come across a product on Etsy that we need to tell the world about. This Wooden Earbud Holder ($27) is one of those products. Made of East Indian Rosewood, this pocket companion is a must-have if you are an avid earbud user. Your cord rolls up like a yo-yo, making it easier to store your buds without creating a messy knot.
All-white everything isn’t necessarily a bad thing, especially in the case of these Marshall Major White Headphones ($119). The speaker people hit the nail on the head with these collapsible headphones. Includes a 6.3mm adapter for your amp and a built-in mic so you can answer your phone calls without missing too much jam time.
