Audiophiles listen up, if you want your earphones to double up as a work of art, Vibro Labs creates beautiful artisan wood in-ear monitors that have a cult following among music lovers. Maya, the brand’s flagship design, is popular for its improved midrange and peak frequency strengths.
Each of Vibro Labs’ earphones is crafted in Maine, United States, from beautiful handmade wood – and Maya is no exception. If you’ve decked your interiors in nature-inspired furniture and accents, perhaps it’s time for your earphones to follow suit.
The earphones are available in a standard (S$996) or custom fit (S$1,139), and each pair comes with a detachable cable and four drivers set up in pairs – each of which delivers sound to the ear via separate passages. Upgraded cables are available as well.
While the Maya earphones are versatile, it is best suited for acoustic genres. The sound device perfectly portrays vocals, preserves micro-details and presents deep sub-bass extension. So fans of Axwell and Ingrosso might want to sit this one out and make way for the John Mayer camp.
If you want a truly exclusive piece to call your own, you can choose to upgrade your earphones to a masterwork model. For this model, the colour and aesthetic design of the wood will be hand-selected by Vibro Labs owner Luke Pighetti – who is also responsible for Maya’s stunning appearance. This one-of-a-kind edition will cost an additional S$285 – but hey, at least you’ll be the proud owner of an exclusive pair of Maya earphones.
