A Designer's Dream For Sustainable Headphones: The Ashcraft Aria

If you've seen really high quality audio and visual technology dressed in slick, sleek, tomorrow design, then you have an idea of what Ashcraft Design is about. From high end speaker systems enrobed in modern mahogany to polished steel video encasements, Ashcraft Design is what catches your eye, not your ear. 

The eye is definitely the catch in Ashcraft Design's concept piece, the Ashcraft Aria headphones, made from elegant recycled materials - wood from accoustic guitars, dual satin-spun earcups made from reclaimed aluminum, and leather lining on the headband and over the earcups made from salvaged clothing.
