Griffin’s WoodTones has earbud casings made from actual wood. Not only does the material look aesthetically pleasing, but it can actually help improve the audio quality. According to its website, the wooden earbuds can help accentuate mid-range, while ensuring high notes are clean and clear, and bass sounds more solid. The wooden casing also helps improve acoustics and clarity without the need to turn up the volume.

Each pair of earbud casing is made from left-over bits of wood that otherwise would have been burned or thrown into a landfill. Each WoodTones is hand polished for a smooth finishing. Each pair retails for $29.99 and can be ordered online.
