Get To Know: LSTN

If musical instruments like guitars and violins are made of wood, shouldn't headphones be as well? Can a pair of headphones help more than just the person wearing them? For LSTN, the answer to both of these questions is yes.

Meet the Founders

Joe Huff, Bridget Hilton

WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM?

Bridget: I worked in the recording industry for years, and music has continuously been one of the most positive and impactful things in my life. I wanted to start a company that gave back through the power of music.

Joe: Most people want to do something that matters, but they don’t always know how. We thought that LSTN headphones would give customers an opportunity to become part of a positive change.

 

HOW DO YOUR HEADPHONES GIVE BACK?

Bridget: For every pair of headphones sold, LSTN helps restore hearing to a person in need through the Starkey Hearing Foundation. Starkey helps kids and adults in countries around the world, from India to Rwanda to the U.S.

 

WHY DO YOU USE WOOD AS A MATERIAL?

Joe: The wood in our headphones helps create a warm and natural sound. Our products are also environmentally friendly. All wood we use is reclaimed from furniture makers and flooring manufacturers — pieces too small for a cabinet but big enough for headphones.
