The LSTN Troubadour headphones are beautifully designed headphones that produce crisp and rich sound, while supporting an important and relevant social mission. The handsome, handcrafted on-ear Troubadours headphones by LSTN offer powerful, clean audio and are now available 10% off when you sign up for Grand St. and use your $15 store credit. These headphones are sustainably crafted from excess wood left over from furniture and flooring manufacturing processes, keeping otherwise valuable raw materials out of the waste stream.

Grab 'em here at Grand St. - LSTN Troubadour Headphones ($135 after you apply the $15 credit, special to Gizmodo readers).


LSTN headphones deliver fantastic sound quality in a tasteful and stylish manner, giving a strong nod toward retro with a modern edge. The gold-plated 3.5mm headphone jack encased in matching wood and 1.2 meter long y-cable gives you plenty of flexibility to plug into your favorite audio sources. The inline microphone, with its simple single-button control, allows you to take phone calls or Skype chats while listening to your tunes. The adjustable metal headband is edged with a low-profile yet soft cushioning to provide a perfect fit. The Troubadours add a touch of sophistication to your music listening experience while balancing your audio karma.

Beyond the well-crafted nature of these headphones, it’s the social mission of LSTN that really blows us away. It just seems like a natural (and purely good) thing to translate a portion of the proceeds from each sale into money that helps others regain the gift of hearing. A portion of each headphone purchase goes to the Starkey Hearing Foundation, an organization committed to providing 100,000 hearing aids a year to those with damaged hearing.

Much like the famous Troubadour music venue in LSTN’s native Los Angeles (where countless musical talents got their big break), we like to think that this very spirit is built into each and every pair of Troubadour headphones. Buy a pair of headphones, give someone the gift of hearing. Beauty, quality, and doing good… it's all music to our ears.
