From Thinksound, a small company that’s built its name on neutral, detailed audio and a commitment to sustainability, the On1 Monitor Series headphones deliver admirably on both fronts. Everything from the PVC-free cables to the packaging, which uses recycled materials, is designed to reduce their environmental impact. The wood cups are made from renewable sources, and produce clean, unadulterated sound with excellent isolation for listening in the office and other public spaces. Slashgear has this to say: “[They’re] beautifully constructed, with a look that’s grown-up and self-assured, and an audio quality to match.”
Note: This drop is limited to 40 units.
Combined with the full-size supra-aural ear cups, which rotate freely to help you find the right fit, the On1’s luxurious memory-foam ear pads and flexible headband promise comfort for those long listening sessions. At just 6.5 ounces, these headphones are light enough to carry with you wherever you go—and the two detachable fabric cables, one with a single-button mic control and one without, make them even more portable. Both cables are reinforced with Kevlar for tangle resistance, and end in a 3.5-millimeter gold-plated stereo plug.
