‘Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity” Plato
Plato’s beautiful quote really captures the essence of the Streetwood-One. Combining simplicity and functionality in a beautiful design. Streetwood-One is the result of two years of prototyping, designing, testing, shaping and perfecting. These headphones are designed specifically for daily use. Headphones are not just for listening to your favourite music in perfect hi-fidelity, they are also about expressing your style. Wearing this customizable ‘accessory’ will make you stand out from the crowd. You are unique, so why not your headphones too?
Streetwood-One headphones let you mix and match different woods to suit your style. You can swap the side disks for a different look. The earpieces unscrew from the head strap, so you can replace them with another wood. Chop & change, mix & match as often as you like.
Headphones benefit from organic materials like wood that can provide a fuller sound than more conventional materials for headphones like plastic. And the soft ear cushions ensure comfort for hours of listening to your favourite music.

A tree will be planted for every set of headphones sold. Where? The trees will be planted in India.Why trees? There is a long list of very good reasons for planting trees. Here are just some of them: job creation, immediate carbon reduction, forest rejuvenation, wildlife habitat improvement, water catchment area upgrading. Trees benefit current and future generations through flowers, fruit, fodder and fuel for local communities and all living creatures.

Pictures of Rewards
"I need a dollar, dollar is wat I need, and if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me?"Aloe Blacc
Yes, every dollar counts, if you donate yours I will keep you updated on my story.
Woodstack is a personal design which originated from Low budget Upcycling. A Dutch handmade product from waste wood and flat bicycle tires, there’s nothing more to it. The wallet was so well received that it also became available for commercial grounds, preserving of course, the "Upcycling" as well as the “Low Budget” identity of the Woodstack.
This headphone stand is made out of oak wood. The two pieces are joined with a slide dovetail.There is a little third piece which is a little wooden nail. If you choose this reward it will be send to you as a flat package. You can easily join the two pieces by sliding them into each other, and lock the joint by putting the nail into a pre drilled hole on the bottom of the headphone stand.
Streetwood-One, and Clubwood-One will be send to you in a light weight wooden box. After unpacking your unique wooden headphone, the box can be used for decoration, as a gift box, for decoration, or to store your headphone. So please don't trash it.
Ash, walnut and oak.
I made my first design of wooden headphones in October 2012. Improvements to my original design took a fast track in the following months and by January 2013 I finally had a model that was good enough to be sold. Over the last year, I have been fine-tuning the design, so that it could be adjusted to fit all. I launched the headphones in January 2014 and since this time I have been tweaking the manufacturing process to increase efficiency. I have now reached the point where I would like to outsource the manufacturing of Streetwood-One and Clubwood-One, so I can focus on new designs.
Where will the funds go?
Risks and challenges
There is a risk, or should I say, a chance that you all get as excited about this as I am. If that occurs it would be really great! Though if there are more than 100 orders there is a slight chance that not all rewards will be in time, but probably they will. Don't worry, I will send them for sure!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
