Impulse Buy: LSTN Headphones

Buds that deliver solid sound quality and give back, too

Feeling too seasoned to be rocking candy apple-colored Beats by Dre? Check out the sophisticated line of headphones (and earbuds) from LSTN. The West Hollywood company, founded by Bridget Hilton and Joe Huff in 2012, swaps plastic for reclaimed wood (beech, cherry, ebony) that’s been discarded by furniture and flooring manufacturers. The finished product looks refined and offers solid sound quality. But LSTN doesn’t just create harmoniously handsome cans; it’s good-hearted. The business has established a program called Amplified, which donates a portion of each sale to the Starkey Hearing Foundation. » “Troubadours” headphones; $150 at
