Beautiful Walnut and Maple Headphones + Giveaway

//Beautiful Walnut and Maple Headphones + Giveaway

I recently encountered a really cool company called Meze Audio that makes beautiful handcrafted headphones out of lovely hardwoods like walnut, maple, and beech. It’s really refreshing to see an alternative to plastic headphones, and to see a company that cares about craftsmanship.

We woodworkers appreciate quality, craftsmanship, and nice lumber, so I thought I’d do a little write up on these headphones…from a woodworker’s perspective.

Meze sent me a set of little earbuds that are surrounded with nicely finished beech wood, one of my favorite wood species. These little headphones are comfortable and have excellent sound quality. They come in a nice zip pouch, as do the larger headphones. Meze has offered to give away a similar pair (but in Walnut) to a lucky winner like you…doesn’t matter where you live! See the details at the bottom of this page.

This is what the larger walnut headphones look like inside:

Check out their website (here) if you want to learn more about the specs and impressive build process. And here are some photos of what the different models look like:

I’ve been waiting to get a great quality headphone that incorporates woodwork. There are brand that have wood incorporated but that I feel is more of a fashion thing whereas this company looks to have taken it to a much more meaningful and sentimental business product. Them sending you these and offering to your followers a free pair, says something about that and it can easily be understood that they know who will appreciate them the most and who will value them. These are the types of companies that I would like to support.

The headphones are beautiful; I might purchase a pair. But as a subscriber, I want you to know that I never want to receive these “follower builder” promotions — an _any_ promotion that involves me acting in any way whatsoever as your paid agent.
