Corky Headphones

Simply love the aspect of using cork in a design, and Antonio Joaquim Rocha has got it pat down with the Sourk headphones. Designed for the luxury segment, the headphones combine wireless technology with noble materials such as cork, leather and stainless steel. Apparently the acoustic insulation properties of the cork allow the user to enjoy sounds at full throttle without interfering with the surrounding environment.

    Interesting that someone with a Portuguese name developed this. Portugal is a key cork exporter.

    @Beth: It seems obvious to me. These seem underdefined… just hemispheres. personally, I don’t think the cork should be used so expansively across the product. It won’t likely have a discernable acoustic benefit so try to use it as a highlight element instead.

    Is always nice to see a good use of a bio-degradeble material in products of this kind.
