There are no two ways about it. Wood is good. Using this sustainable material makes everything look good, from USB flash drives to laptops. It's just a shame that there aren't more products out there made out of wood. Wooden earphones are pretty cool. It's not that we like getting splinters in our ears, but wood definitely feels better than some plastic, no matter how gooey it is.

Putting wood on a gadget also gives it some class. It makes it look more expensive than it actually is, and makes it a pleasure to hold. Naturally, these gadgets don't actually perform that much better than their plastic counterparts, but for us, it's just a pleasure to see wood used. These wooden earbuds look a lot more fashionable than the last ones we featured. They are also widely available through Urban Outfitters and other electronics stores.
These great looking Holua Skullcandy earbuds are for people going for a more natural look. Skullcandy earphones and earbuds are usually pretty remarkable in the fact that they will attract the eye. These wooden ones are no different. However, all this wood doesn't come cheap. You'll have to shell out almost $100 to get these. That's a $50 premium over their other similar models. However, if you love green gadgets and love the laser engravings on these 'buds, then these are the wooden earphones for you. [via DVice]
