Follow your own beat

With superior audio quality, you experience the clear highs, warm mids, and deep bass tones that match what you feel. And when you wear headphones from recycled plastics, you dance to the beat of your own drum.

Environmentally sound

Where your inner world meets your outer one. For big sound and bigger impact.

More climate conscious

Even when you’re tuned out, you’re always connected. Producing new headphones is the most CO2 intensive part. By designing our devices with longer lifespans, incorporating recycled materials, and investing in projects that aimed at reducing CO2 emissions during production, we’re taking responsibility for our planet.

More recycled materials

Your headphones are made with over 80% recycled plastics and 100% recycled aluminium in the headband base. In the process of making them, we’re taking care of the people behind the scenes through living wage bonuses and worker voice programs. Feel good about what you consume.

More sound for longer

Your headphones are yours. Really yours. You can repair and replace them yourself. Nothing is glued shut. With spare parts from our web shop and easy video tutorials, it’s all in your hands. Need a new battery? You’ve got this. After all, the most sustainable headphones are the ones built to last.

Modularity at its finest

Full headphones

Your headphones are not only foldable, but also made from modular parts. These are repairable and replaceable, so you can listen in style for years to come. Here’s a selection of some of the parts. There’s even more in the web shop.


You never have to worry about running out of juice. Your battery is replaceable and one of the simplest parts to fix.

Headband and ear cushions

Fit to your comfort, the headband and ear cushions are pretty important to your listening experience. But what happens when there's wear and tear? You can replace both the headband or its cover and the ear cushions. Easily and with minimum effort. So you can reclaim your comfort.

Speaker covers and speakers

With headphones, there's nothing more important than sound quality. So when the left ear isn't playing any sound or the music sounds like it's coming from the 1920s, the experience is totally lost. We've made it so you can repair your speakers and speaker covers in a few simple steps. Getting you back to your full sound as soon as possible.


The USB-C port is the unsung hero of our devices. It's used to charge our headphones, so we can keep listening. But all that charging can take a toll. Luckily, our USB-C ports are fully replaceable. Simple and easy, just as it should be.

Easy to set up and great sound quality. Noise cancelling works alright. Easy control via joystick. Headphones are quite heavy though but huge advantage is that you can switch out broken pieces yourself! Love that!

The headphones are excellent quality

The headphones are excellent quality. The fair trade aspect of the components and materials is vital and the main reason I purchased them. Although the headphones were initially out of stock the company soon e-mailed me to say it was available again. The headphones arrived v promptly after ordering. They were 70% charged. The packaging was minimal and nothing unnecessary and was recyclable which is great. The sound quality is excellent. The listening experience is first class.

Quickly send and impeccably packaged

The headphones were promptly send to me and arrived nicely and sustainably packaged which also made it fully non-painful to open. The cable connecting the cups was loose at one end but that can also be attributed to transport, and was easily fixed.

Awarded “best in green electronics”


There are more phones than people. And behind every device is a complex supply chain. With suppliers, local communities and the wider industry, we work for fairer materials and more responsible practices. Showing the electronics industry that we can do better.

Together we’re disrupting the industry’s short-term thinking that the world can no longer afford. And changing what it means to be “best.”
