Sometimes I come across something so great I just think one should shout it from the rooftops. And when I think of it, shouting, or better, hearing is exactly what this post is about.
On my search for more upcycle design I came across a company that uses reclaimed wood to make their fantastic products.
I’m talking about LSTN, founded in 2012 and based in West Hollywood who make headphones.
The reclaimed wood they use is sourced from furniture and flooring companies. It’s the small otherwise discarded scraps that are left over from their manufacturing process. The wood is never dyed, so what you get is its natural color.

At LSTN, they believe that what’s good for business should be good for the world. That’s why, when LSTN started, they decided to help people who are hearing impaired.
“When we started LSTN, our mission was to create a company that could create global change by providing high quality products that help fund hearing restoration and spread awareness for the global problem of hearing loss and hearing impairment. Our ‘Giving Back. Amplified.‘ program wasn’t an afterthought or marketing gimmick, it was the reason we started LSTN. In other words, we didn’t just want to create another headphone company. We wanted to create something that could change the world.”

For every pair of headphones sold, LSTN helps restore hearing to a person in need through the Starkey Hearing Foundation. GIVING BACK. AMPLIFIED.
Well, after reading what LSTN is all about, I think you’ll agree when I said that ‘shouting’ about this company and their products is a good thing. It’s all about hope and inspiration!
