Gadgets: Sennheiser EcoVinyl Project by Matthew Lim

I am diggin’ this right here.

Going green shouldn’t come at the cost of ones auditory experience. Thanks to Matthew Lim, it won’t.  Lim, a recent graduate of the Art Center College of Design, has introduced EcoVinyl, hoping to bring Sennheiser into the 21st century.  Utilizing sustainable materials, Lim has crafted a turntable that boasts high-density fiberboard, which is often used for audio-system closure boxes because of its ability to carry sound reverb; cork for the turntable and earphone headband; and aluminum, which he CNC’d to produce a durable body, all for $350 USD. Sennheiser thus far has not committed to the project or indicated any interest, so its future remains to be seen. What do you think?

  1. These headphones don’t just look good – they are that good, all the way down to their high-tech insides. Exceptionally comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, they provide a perfect example of what exquisite headphones Sennheiser specialists can produce out of pure enthusiasm and solid years of experience and expertise. The beige exterior of the HD 598 high-end headphones features high-gloss burl wood parts with matching earpads – all this slendour betrays the HD 598 earphones as pure unadulterated elite in the eyes of everyone around. And people will be looking – Sennheiser products tend to draw attention.
