Wood is good On the back of their radio announcements earlier in the week , Tivoli Audio has unveiled its Radio Silenz active noise-cancelling headphones, featuring the same distinctive wood finishes found in other Tivoli Audio products. The headphones are said to be lightweight and comfortable to wear and the closed back, padded on-ear design also rotates 90 degrees and upward for easy transport in the included travel pouch. Radio Silenz operates for up to 50 hours on a single AAA battery (included in the package) and can be used with the noise cancellation on or off, or even without a battery. The handy Defeat button temporarily switches off the noise cancellation and fades down the audio, allowing conversation or announcements to be heard without having to remove the headphones or switch the noise cancellation off and on again. In remaining true to our design culture at Tivoli Audio, we created Radio Silenz to maximise musical listening experiences by combining the acoustic advantages of natural woods with the technology of active noise cancellation, says Tom DeVesto, Tivoli Audio Founder, CEO and Designer. The result is a headphone design that has a distinctive look for the discerning listener. Radio Silenz features real wood housings and a gold-plated 3.5mm right angle stereo plug, airline adapter, and compact control unit with a pocket clip. Radio Silenz is available in three wood finishes of Walnut, Cherry, and Black Ash to coordinate with fellow Tivoli Audio products. Suggested to retail for £119 Radio Silenz and are on sale now.
