Thinksound TS02 + Mic Wooden Headphones [Review]




I love my iPhone, but absolutely hate the headphones that came with it. To me they sound horrible and always fall out of my ear. I suppose if you had ears like Dr. Spock or a massive cranium with ear caverns to match they’d work fine. But if you a) Love music b) Prefer the feel of a customized fit opposed to a one size fits all approach and c) Demand a functional call/music control button, then the Thinksound TS02 + Mic are a must have accessory.

Even if you don’t have a need for an integrated headphone + mic, the folks at Thinksound have something for you too; you bluetoothed cyborgs, check out the TS02. And Sport-O’s peep out the TS01’s…

Why they’re good: Great sound, four different sized flexible silicon ear inserts for a secure fit and smart eco-friendly packaging. 

Why they’re not so good: I was hard pressed to find something constructive… I’ve had my share of earphones over the years and these are by far my favs. A high-end sound at $89.99 MSRP

Check out the tech specs:

  • Wooden housing with 8mm drivers
  • Passive noise isolation (This really works, even in my noisy car!)
  • Lightweight (12g) with PVC free, tangle resistant cable
  • “Dynamic driver” features 20Hz – 20kHz frequency response
  • 3.5mm gold plated plug
  • Cord clip and cotton carrying pouch
  • One (1) year warranty

Before writing this review, I spent about six weeks taking these headphones through the ringer in a variety of situations. They made the San Francisco Bay Area Transit and CALTrain actually enjoyable. On the phone in the car, they were clear and filtered out a lot of the road noise. While exercising on my indoor cycling trainer, the fit was comfortable and the inserts didn’t slide out of my ear once I got a little sweaty. And even while working remote at my home office or in a coffee shop, the mic and passive noise isolation worked perfectly. I also listened to a variety to music genres from Rock, Jazz, Pop (no Justin Beiber) and Classical and was very satisfied with the how well they were balanced across the frequency spectrum.

Recommendation: Check em out! The founders of Thinksound have a lot of experience in this space and will not disappoint. To find out more, check out:

    It’s “through the wringer”, not “ringer”.

    Dr. Spock? You mean THIS guy?

    His ears look normal to me!

    (If the Vulcan Science Academy gives out doctorates, MISTER Spock either never got one or never chose to use the title.)
