PRESENTING: YOUR NEXT OBSESSION

Talk about chemistry, this is the most amazing pair to be married: social enterprise + music. Just when I thought it couldn’t get better, let’s throw in a sexy design (because we all know good design makes anything sexy.) This is some saucy benevolence here people.

You can start obsessing now (if you haven’t already.) LSTN Headphones takes the cake for sexy looks, sound, and purpose — btw, it’s pronounced “listen,” for those of you wondering.

MAKING SOME NOISE

LSTN is an social enterprise headquartered in Los Angeles, CA. With their program, Giving Back. Amplified., their goal is loud and clear:

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.

What separates LSTN from other trendy headphone brands? They’re products with a purpose. Taking something enriching, such as music, to impact global change and enhance the lives of those who struggle to hear those melodic tunes – beautifully meta. LSTN tag teams with Starkey Hearing Foundation, providing funds and traveling the world a few times a year to provide hearing aids to the hearing impaired in the U.S., Peru, Kenya, Uganda, China and Sri Lanka – just to name a few.

I have to admit, their videos bring me to tears every time I see the reactions of those hearing for the first time in their lives – hearing music and the voices of loved ones for the first time. Think about hearing what your own name sounds like for the first time! Amazing…sigh.

Ok, here are some facts via LSTN:

95% OF CHILDREN

in deaf schools worldwide can be helped with just a hearing aid

OVER 360 MILLION

people worldwide who are hearing impaired

100,000 EACH YEAR

Starkey Hearing Foundation provides 100,000 hearing aids to people in need around the world each year

A SWEET SOUNDING STORY

BRIDGET HILTON,
FOUNDER

With an preexisting love for music, founder Bridget Hilton, found inspiration from a video she watched of a woman – the same age – hearing her own voice for the first time. After imagining how her life would be without hearing music, she discovered that 360 million people were hearing impaired. She firmly believed music should not be dependent on status, age, or location; it should be enjoyed by everyone around the world. Teaming up with her friend, Joe Huff, they brought (my personal favorite social entrepreneurship) to life; LSTN.

No wonder Bridget was selected as a member of Forbes 30 Under 30 list for Social Entrepreneurs in 2015 – she’s pretty amazing.

WHERE DOES YOUR MONEY GO?

As the highest honor, for only $50 – $150, you enhance someone’s quality of life, somewhere around the world, by helping them hear – giving them the sonic blessing of hearing music and someone saying “I love you.” Yah, $150 might be pricey but isn’t the value of hearing priceless?

To top off that altruism, for $150 or less, you get your pick between 3 sexy styles of headphones/earbuds designed with a sleek selection of exotic woods. The build is phenomenal! I mean, you can bend and twist this kid! It’s literally indestructible. Talk about getting your money’s worth.

Did I mention they’re sexy in every way that matters? (Let me say it one more time: sexy.)

THE WOODS

Think about it… violins, guitars, pianos, etc. are all made of wood right? It makes sense because the wood resonates a natural whole sound; we love vibing to that stuff! Therefore, the wood serves not only seductive good looks, but awesome high sound quality. Keep in mind, each kind of wood will have a different affect on sound.

Ps. These beauties are built with reclaimed wood. Way to be resourceful friends! aka LSTN team (btw we’re friends now).
