LSTN: The Environmentally Friendly Headphones

Bridget Hilton wants LSTN to be the largest charitable music brand. Why should you lend her your ears?

From recycling to composting to using less water, everybody seems to be going green these days. Now, it’s easy to become a part of the trend with LSTN Headphones, which are made out of wood from reused furniture scraps and flooring.

They come in three styles: Troubadours (pictured at bottom $150), Fillmores ($100) and Bowerys ($50).

The headphones are perfect for both those with a guilty conscious and those who are fashion conscious; consumers can choose between crisp ebony, cherry and beech designs. The stylish wood also provides for a natural, rich sound that guarantees an enjoyable listening experience.

In addition to being environmentally-friendly, LSTN Headphones’ “Giving Back. Amplified.” program means that the proceeds of every pair sold goes to restoring hearing to someone in need. In cooperation with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, which has provided over 1 million hearing aids this decade alone, LSTN Headphones is dedicated to helping others hear.

The woman behind the program, Bridget Hilton, is motivated by the thought of benefitting something that has always helped her throughout her life. “Music has continuously been one of the most positive and impactful things in my life, and I wanted to give back to it,” she says.

Hamilton has been giving back to the music industry since ever since she was a teenager, writing music reviews for a newspaper and working for music venues and retails. At age 19, Hilton was a part of the Universal Music Group, and she later worked for the Warner Music Group before deciding to start her own business.

Hamilton’s ultimate goal is for LSTN Headphones to become the largest, worldwide charitable music brand. To reach this goal, she plans on expanding LSTN to work in music and social enterprise.

In the meantime, it is easy to support Hilton’s dreams, the environment and those who need hearing aids by buying a pair of LSTN Headphones online.
