Know that feeling you get when the beat drrrrrrrops? Multiply that by the good vibes generated by hearing the bass throb in your recycled-plastic headphones, add in a hefty comfort quotient, and expand that whole shebang to the third power, and you've got the Beats by Dre Studio Ekocycle Headphones. In an earth-friendly dual effort with Ekocycle (itself a partnership between will.i.am and Coca-Cola), Beats by Dre made the Studio Ekocycle from 31% recycled plastic bottles (that's three 20oz bottles per pair) to try and make folks more aware of the waste we generate. Not only are these 'phones environmentally-conscious, but they ship in recycled and sustainably-minded packaging, and use a digital owner's manual instead of traditional, and wasteful, paper.
All this green goodness doesn't mean that the Studio Ekocycles are some sort of wishy-washy, tinny-sounding headphones. They rattle your brain with studio-quality sound, have redesigned, breathable ear cups, and use active noise cancellation to make sure the only things you can hear are bass wobbles, shredding solos, and soulful verses. You can even set them to noise-cancellation-only mode, if you feel like taking a quiet nap on the plane or train. An in-line remote provides easy volume control, a hard case keeps your babies safe, and two AAA batteries are included so you can start pumping beats into your brain without having to run to the store.
