From Thinksound, a small company that’s built its name on clear, detailed audio and a commitment to sustainability, the ts01.1 earphones deliver admirably on both fronts. They feature the handcrafted wood housing of their predecessor, the ts01, made from renewable sources and available first on Massdrop in limited-edition walnut. There are a few other upgrades, too, including improved build quality and bass response, and a stronger, Kevlar-reinforced cable that ends in a 45-degree angled 3.5-millimeter stereo plug.
Everything about the ts01.1 earphones, from the PVC-free cable to the recycled packaging, is designed to minimize their environmental impact. Surrounding the acoustically enhanced 10-millimeter driver, the aluminum baffle and reduced housing provide comfort for long listening sessions. Finally, at just 0.4 ounces, they’re light enough to carry with you wherever you go—including the gym, where their sweat-resistant design and secure fit are particularly handy.
