I’m sure that desks, chairs, doors, and other obvious answers come to mind. But what about headphones? Mee Electronics has created a great-looking pair of unique headphones with a wooden construction. I was certainly excited when I found out I would be getting these for review. But no matter how cool a pair of earbuds are, it all comes down to sound quality. So are the R1’s more like a mighty Sequoia Tree or like a weak fern? Read on and find out:

Conclusion:

Me Electronic’s R1 headphones are a unique pair. They are sure to get you many looks and many questions. Personally, I’ve never seen headphones made of wood so I find their design to be as awesome as it is unique. The sound is also very nice! I had a misconception that the sound quality would be,well, wooden and brittle due to it’s constructions. But in reality the sound quality is very deep and solid- fans of any genre will enjoy this sound quality.

I feel like they are priced quite nicely considering the sound quality and all the extra’s you get. That’s why I recommend the R1 headphones to anyone who wants a product that will stand out and sound great.
 
Pros 
  • Wooden design is unique and awesome
  • Sound is very full and powerful
  • Lot’s of accessories including case, eartips, etc
Cons
  • No microphone, button, or volume controls. 
  • Cable prone to tangles.
