We’re all spending a lot more time indoors listening to our favorite songs, so, it’s natural to surmise that listening to a playlist with less-than-exemplary headphones might be doing it, and you, an injustice. That’s where Audio-Technica’s all-new ATH-AWKT Audiophile Wooden Headphones come in, offering the company’s trademark sound in an aesthetically-pleasing package built for the design-minded individual.

The Audio-Technica ATH-AWKT Audiophile Wooden Headphones boast a rare, hand-finished Japanese hardwood Kokutan (striped ebony) construction, very much the same as that which is found in the manufacture of woodwind instruments and pianos. Like their musical counterparts, the ATH-AWKT emphasizes the suppression of resonance, as well as natural sound reproduction, creating an ethereal dreamscape of highs, lows, and mid-tones that are pleasing to the ear. Inside, a pair of 53mm drivers crafted using highly-efficient German Permendur magnetic circuitry and a bespoke housing structure utilizing two separate acoustic chambers are used to ensure precise reproduction throughout the audible range, helping the handsome closed-back variants to perform at the top of their game. Head to Audio-Technica’s website to grab a pair of your own for $1,899.
