I've taken a break away from the camera reviews to take a look at the Classic 11 Earbuds from Meze. These earbuds stand apart from most of the other models on the market due to the quality of the construction and because they are made from handcrafted ebony wood.
The fact that they are wooden makes me believe they sound richer and more luxurious than the usual plastic earphones. Now I can't say how much of that is just down to my imagination and how much is scientific fact, but to describe it in another way.... If these headphones were a drink, they would be a Licor 43 Coffee enjoyed outside a Spanish Bar watching the sunset, rather than a Pepsi Max gulped down at lunchtime in a fast food restaurant.
To the wearer, headphones are all about the sound, but the way they look also communicates a lot. If I saw someone wearing wooden headphones or earphones, I'd imagine that they they enjoyed their music, appreciated good quality sound and had an eclectic and extensive record collection. Now of course that might be completely inaccurate, but it's really not a bad image to convey.
