Electronics are most often manufactured in materials like metals and plastics, but the charm of something like the MoMA I.dear Speaker cannot be overlooked. Unlike its most common counterparts, this audio accessory has the usual wired up inside, but flaunts a rich wooden case to add a little class.

Measuring just 1.25 inches in height, the delightful lumber gadget is ultra-portable and sure to impress. Without employing the usual mesh visible on the face of the transmitter, designer Sang-bum Kim drilled tiny holes to let sound escape, mimicking the familiar form of an old telephone earpiece.

A small keychain loop can be kept on the corner of the MoMA I.dear Speaker to keep tabs on the tiny device, and with a simple headphone jack in the back, these are the only places where the winsome wood grain is interrupted.
