Real wood meets noise-canceling technology

Tivoli Radio Silenz noise-canceling headphones

The Radio Silenz headphones feature real wood earcups (shown in Walnut finish)

Usually the natural acoustic properties of real wood are only available in very high-end headphones. Tivoli not only brings the wood, but noise-canceling circuitry as well, in a lightweight, affordable headphone. Their Radio Silenz headphones keep your music where it belongs — in your ears — while keeping external noise on the outside of these unique wooden earcups.

Seamlessly move between music and conversation

Ever been listening to music while someone is constantly interrupting to talk? It's annoying to keep pulling off and putting on your headphones while fiddling with your music player's volume and playback controls. Tivoli has devised a one-touch solution to this problem: the "defeat" button. If you need a break from your music for a quick conversation, press and hold the defeat button on the in-line controller. The audio fades out and the noise-cancelling microphones pick up external noise, so you can hear your surroundings loud and clear without removing your headphones. When you're ready to resume listening, just release the button, and your music fades back in for a seamless transition.

These on-ear 'phones are so comfortable and small, you'll barely know they're there. Fold them up and slip them into the included pouch for easy portability while traveling. Or, better yet, just keep them on your ears and enjoy your music for hours at a time. The included battery provides up to 50 hours of listening. But if the battery should die mid-flight, don't worry — you can listen endlessly in passive mode, no battery required.

The Tivoli Radio Silenz headphones are available in three finishes: black ash, walnut, and cherry.
