The Thinksound ms01 in-ear headphones manage to deliver genuinely powerful bass and studio-like sound while retaining an earth-friendly image.My interest in New Hampshire-based Thinksound was piqued about a year and a half ago when a pair of its TS02 headphones landed here at Digital Trends HQ. Though the company had launched in December 2009 and had already produced a couple of headphone models (the Rain and Thunder, both of which we reviewed) the TS02 were my first exposure to the brand and, likewise, to a line of headphones with eco-friendly, sustainable practices at the center of their design. I am unapologetically enthusiastic about green products in general, and even more so when they tie into to my passion for consumer electronics. With that said, I don’t care how “green” a product is unless it performs well and looks good doing it. Thankfully, the ts02 turned out to be a great-sounding and attractive set of canal-phones that earned high praise and a Digital Trends Editor’s Choice award. It stands to reason that Thinksound’s products would sound good. The company was founded by two gentlemen with plenty of experience both in high-end consumer audio and recording engineering.
When you think of earbuds for listening to music and working with audio, you generally don't expect the kind of quality that thinksound presents here. What we've got here is a wooden pair of earbuds by the name of ms01, an entry into thinksound's monitor series. These in-ear earbuds each feature an acoustically enhanced 8mm high-definition driver, each with passive noise isolation to back them up - and that wood certainly warms up your world from the outside in. This pair of earbuds is one of several created in collaboration between thinksound CEO and acclaimed Audio Engineer Aaron Fournier and a set of musicians all aiming to create a pair of earbuds with nothing less than a full range of sound and acoustics worthy of their end price. At $99.99 a pop, we'd expect nothing less than the best for our ears constantly bombarded by the evil of lesser sound-blasters. That's just what thinksound delivers, thankfully, and in the video you're about to see you'll hear just that. What you're listening to in the back half of the video there is a new single from Jack White, a fellow you might recognize from the White Stripes, this music played from the audio jack of an iPhone 4S through the ms01 phones and the camera I'm using here: a Lumix GF1.
