Seemingly bored with just cranking out radios, Tivoli has shifted their focus onto the headphone space, particularly noise-cancelling headphones. The Radio Silenz headphones take Tivoli’s decades of experience and siphon it into a product they hope will please ears.
The Radio Silenz headphones feature 40mm drivers enclosed in wood and attached onto a folding headband that ensures portability. One AAA battery will give you 50 hours of listening without the bothers of the noise around you. If you have to have a quick convo, Tivoli designed a “Defeat” button that will mute the music and allow you to converse without removing your headphones — which may or may not creep people out.
Tivoli says the headphones reduce outside noise by 85 per cent, though that seems like it may be a bit generous after a quick listen. That said, they’re certainly well constructed and appear up to the challenge of surviving daily use. Tivoli expects the Radio Silenz headphone to be available in June for $US160. [Tivoli]
