LSTN Headphones Provides Hearing Aids for Children in Need

A pair of LSTN Headphones with cherry wood.
Today I learned about LSTN Headphones, a company based in Los Angeles, CA which sells environmentally-friendly headphones made from exotic woods.

A pair of LSTN Headphones costs between $57 and $95, and they claim the sound quality is excellent, but that's not why I'm particularly interested in them.

You see, for every pair of LSTN headphones purchased, LSTN provides a pair of hearing aids, batteries, molds, ear cleaning and antibiotics to a deaf child in need. They do this as partners with global charities who operate clinics in small villages.

I think this is really great. As they say on their website, "the production of hearing aids only meets 10% of global need." They even provide mosquito nets, because malaria is a leading cause of hearing loss.

Note: I wasn't contacted or sponsored by LSTN in any way to make this post. I just think they are doing something really amazing for children in need.

  2. I am really glad to hear about this. It is very nice that many non government agencies and organizations are helping these kids. You see, some hearing aids can be quite expensive.

  3. This is such a great news. I am happy to hear this. It is recommendable that Government is investing funds and helping these hard of hearing people.
