Since the early days of classical music, wood has always been a highly regarded material both for its acoustic properties and aesthetic appeal. Now designers are getting back to those musical roots in a number of different ways with speaker systems and headphones that are partially, or in some cases almost entirely, composed from wood.

Although low-tech in nature, these wooden sound systems have sophisticated acoustic chambers that create a rich and robust sound that you just can’t get from speakers produced with conventional materials. And because the designs make excellent use of uncomplicated elements—like the type, shape and thickness of the wood—many of these products have fewer moving parts and are more durable than systems that contain a lot of integrated electronics.

Any way you look at it, wood is simply a great material for building a sound system - just make sure to keep them away from termites.
