Who: Co-founders Bridget Hilton and Joe Huff
What: A company that makes and sells handcrafted wood headphones for the hearing impaired with the aim of “changing the world through the power of music.”
LSTN offers two types of headphones – the Troubadours and the Fillmores – and one model of ear buds (the Bowerys). The headphones, which are handcrafted from reclaimed wood, typically go for $100 to $150 and the ear buds are priced at $50. They are sold at Whole Foods (WFM), Nordstroms, Urban Outfitters and Barnes & Noble (BKS), among other locations.
For every pair sold, through a partnership with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, the company helps restore hearing to a person in need.
