It has long been held that natural materials offer superior acoustics over other man-made alternatives. Thus, it comes as no surprise that we’d eventually see a pair of earphones made of wood.

Woodees Inner Ear Stereo Earphones offer a unique design with earpieces encased in wood rather than plastic or metal.

According to CNET, Woodees offer some of the most natural-sounding bass ever heard through headphones; a sound more akin to that of speakers than earphones.

The Woodees earphones are available in two models: a standard MP3 player version and an iPhone/smartphone set with an inline mic.
