These Japanese made headphones were launched on Kickstarter a few months ago, but Konohazuk has since cancelled the project to further optimize their product. They’ve decided to redesign the H3 to include a detachable cable, carrying case, and additional colors, as well as refine the internal build of the speaker housing to improve audio quality.

Regardless, the concept and build behind these headphones are awesome, so we will give you the latest details and when to look out for their next crowdfunding campaign.

Konohazuk eco-friendly headphones are sustainable and built to limit their impact on the environment. The Konohazuk H3 is fashioned with a minimalist approach and look – using as few materials as possible.

Wood has been used for years as a means to conduct audio. Its ability to conduct and vibrate sound waves is why it has been used to produce instruments like guitars. Konohazuk is using Japanese beech wood to do the same in an on-ear headphone. This wood is said to maximize musical sound.

The headband is made from layers of this wood to ensure a flexible design. The molded plywood is able to withstand a sufficient amount of lateral pressure so it should slowly adjust to the size of the wearer’s head without causing any pain. The ear cushions are made of a plush leather that allots for passive sound isolation and comfortable listening sessions. Konohazuk promises great audio from the wooden cans. Operating with 40 mm drivers the on-ear headphones reach a frequency response of 20 – 20,000 Hertz on an impedance of 32 ohms.

Konohazuk eco-friendly headphones will relaunch on Kickstarter this Fall. The company anticipates selling the wooden cans for $179 to backers before retailing for $300. If interested in snagging a pair head over to Konohazuk.com and subscribe to their newsletter for updates.
