Exclusive Roozt Interview with LSTN Founder, Bridget Hilton:
Roozt: So, what’s the story behind starting LSTN?
Roozt: That’s so freakin’ cool that it gives us goosebumps. Who inspired you?
Bridget: Warby Parker was a big inspiration. If they could give sight for every pair of eye glasses sold, I could find a way to give hearing. Selling unique and fashionable headphones and partnering with an amazing charity for the deaf was the answer.
Roozt: That’s pretty brilliant. How did you arrive at this conclusion?
Bridget: I like the idea of drilling down on your passions and figuring out how to make them work together.
Roozt: We hear that! Speaking of passions… what are yours?
Bridget: I’m passionate about music, charity, and the environment. LSTN is a way to combine all of those things. We make high quality wooden headphones. For every pair we sell, we give the gift of hearing to a child in a deaf school.
Roozt: Very inspiring. But you don’t just stop there do you…
Bridget: No… actually all our earphones are eco-friendly as well. The exotic wood we use is scrap wood from furniture manufacturers that would have otherwise been wasted - pieces too small for a table or chair for example, turn out to be perfect to make headphones out of. Good for your ears, good for the environment.
