Thinksound has yet again gifted me with a lovely set of eco-friendly headphones!!! I absolutely adore and appreciate their smart packaging (yea, I’m a sucker for branding and packaging). The pair I previously had, which I used daily, was already awesome… but these TS02 headphones are even better because I’m able to control my music with a few clicks (including repeat, go back a few tracks, skip, etc…), however, I don’t think it allows me to control the volume (Mike correct me if I’m wrong lol), and use it as a mobile headset.

I love the look of these headphones because they’re so sleek and helloooooo they’re made of REAL wood and recycled materials =)

From Thinksound:

Great sound you can talk about.

thinksound™ ts02+mic headphones feature an in-ear 8mm high-definition driver with integrated microphone and call control. These eco-friendly earbuds have “excellent sound quality, and produce a rich, and warm sound, which is clear and crisp.” (Geeky Gadgets) You can also easily answer calls via the sleek, one-button control.

The ts02+mic features reduced speaker diameter and housing size to provide better ergonomics, upgraded acoustics, and a wider sound-stage. “The ts02+mic fits comfortably and its high-definition driver pumps out warm sound that is as clean as the artist who made it probably intended.” (Gear Diary) Like our other models, the ts02+mic also features PVC-Free cables and a hand-crafted, sustainable wood housing for more accurate sound reproduction.

Offered in a rich Cherry/Silver or Chocolate/Black finish, thinksound™ ts02+mic headphones are compatible with iPhone, iPad, and most Blackberry models and smart phones. Every pair comes with a cotton carrying pouch, and four sets of ear fittings to ensure a perfect fit. As with all of our products, thinksound™ ts02+mic headphones come with a one (1) year warranty.

ts02+mic headphones are compatible with:

iPod, iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPad, iPhone (3G, 3GS, 4), Macbook, Droid II, Droid X, Droid ERIS, HTC Droid Incredible, Samsung Galaxy S, Blackberry (with 3.5mm standard headphone jacks only), Motorola A1600, HTC EVO and many more. Contact us if you want to know if your phone is compatible.

oh yea, I got a hair cut and color =)

last week WeSC hosted a launch party for dante‘s new headphones. i have to admit, they’re pretty dope. you can’t hear ANYTHING outside of what the speakers are playing.. hmm… so i guess its not the best if you’re riding your bike or if you’re uber tired on the tried trying to get home… congrats D

also, got to meet up with the T19 crew from japan! finally got to meet mr. singo in person! awesome kid and runs the skateboarding scene in tokyo… no, really, he does. =P otaki, kaori, andrew, and a few others came as well! i LOVE hanging out with them, they’re so much fun and i love watching them skate. after the party we walked around san gennaro where otaki fell in love with fried oreos and we had some bomb ass cheap chinese food off hester and baxter – under $5!!! yum…

my new thinksound headphones…

Posted in Fashion, Nerd Alert by yoshi on March 5, 2010

after almost a year and a half of using my busted, old, white apple ear plugs/headphones, i’ve finally been given some new ones! a friend of mine saw a photo of me sporting the old joints and decided it was time for me to step up my head phone game.

so a few days later i received these thinksound headphones!

a little bit about thinksound:

Clear Sound with a Clearer Conscience
thinksound™ began with a simple goal; to create incredible sounding headphones with the smallest eco-footprint possible. Our headphones are made with real wood, creating a more natural resonance and unparalleled acoustics…..

Our Green Initiative
thinksound™ headphones are designed with the following features to reduce its overall environmental impact:

  • Wood is from renewable sources
  • Packaging is made from recycled materials
  • Bleach-free packaging materials
  • Smaller packaging size = less materials used
  • Elimination of plastic bubble insert
  • Cotton carrying pouch is sewn from renewable sources
  • PVC-free cables

now, if you’re wondering about the sound quality, let’s just say i can finally hear out of my left ear (formerly thought i was going deaf), i can block out all the outside noise, and my ear holes are apparently TINY – i had to use the smallest gel tip thingies! so yes, i say these would be worth the investment – plus you’re going green! average price point ranges from $74.99 – $99.99.

i’m a sucker for packaging and minor details… two thumbs up!

thank you mike! visit THINKSOUND for more colors and types!
