“Songs” headphones were designed by Pauline Ariaux and Jacopo Ferrari. These super sustainable cork headphones weigh just 64 grams and thanks to the compressible properties of the material, they are easy to disassemble, hence they are easy to repair too. No glue, no upholstery, no screw is used – just cork, simple electric parts, steel, and foam. Cork is a versatile material that is being explored to design sustainable products. It is non-allergic, resilient, sound insulating, moisture-proof, and soft touch. “Songs” headphones are foldable and can be adjusted as well.
