Michael Young has designed the world’s first over-ear headphones that are made out of recyclable materials. The Noisezero O+ Eco headphones are made out of recyclable stainless steel, aluminum, and cornstarch bio-plastics.
These ‘phones were the result of a collaboration between EOps, Michael Young and the Paris-based design store Colette. These somewhat large headphones includes 50mm titanium-coated HD driver drivers with a neodymium iron-boron magnet that will generate a pleasing sound. They’re also coated in titanium to prevent unwanted vibrations. The headphones include a microphone and are ready for your iPod or iPhone, since they come with the required three buttons.
The EOps Noisezero O+ Eco headphones are currently available from Colette for €140 (~$189 USD w/VAT).
