Most noise-canceling headphones don’t look very good, but the new Tivoli Audio Radio Silenz Headphones combine sophisticated styling with peaceful listening. The solid wood ear cups come with 40mm high performance drivers with circuitry to cancel out exterior noises so that no one disturbs you while you relax.
Between the noise cancelation and padded earcups, they’re supposed to reduce ambient noise by as much as 85%. The Radio Silenz have an in-line box that holds a single AAA battery to power the noise cancellation for up to 50 hours. They’ve also got a defeat button that switches off the cancellation and lowers the volume so that you can hear the outside world more clearly.
The headphones can fold up, and store in an included travel pouch. The Tivoli Radio Silenz will be available in black ash, walnut or cherry finishes, and come out this June for $159.99 (USD)
