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:
