If speakers were like cars, there would be an unfortunate and unquestionable tradeoff between green sensibilities and performance.
Thankfully that isn’t the case, though.
If you need proof, just take a gander at Glow Audio’s beautiful little Voice One Loudspeaker.
The Voice one's granola credentials are undeniable: The company constructs the speaker’s faceted “puzzle piece” enclosure out of recycled scrap wood to avoid contributing to depletion of hardwood forests.
In lieu of aluminum or synthetic polymers, its three-inch drivers are crafted out of natural hemp and bamboo fibers.
Audiophiles will quickly fall love with the Voice One for its musical abilities, though: The full-range driver creates a rich, natural sound without the need for a crossover, and thanks to the speaker’s unique organic shape, it delivers surprisingly full bass from such a petite package.
Finishes include natural wood (as pictured), silver, red, pearl white and black.
Voice One: $348/pair
