Offering a new way to go green in a market that hasn’t been particularly eco-friendly, New York music technology brand EOps has collaborated with Hong Kong-based designer Michael Young to create a special pair of headphones. Crafted from cornstarch and bio-platics, the EOps Noisezero i+ Eco edition earphones are the first earbuds of their kind. Not content with mere tree-hugging, the collaboration also represents a step forward in design. The piece’s horn-shaped chamber fit better in the ear than standard earphones and optimize acoustic performance while enhancing the treble, making for a superior music-listening experience. Available now at colette.
