Description

A pair of Bird modular headphones. Consisting of eight separate parts, these refurbished headphones are designed to be sent through the post as part of a subscription service that allows customers to easily assemble their headphones at home, disassemble individual parts as they get worn or broken and obtain replacement parts as needed: a circular design process. Additionally 85% of the materials used in manufacture are recycled or reused by the company. Made by Gerrard Street, based in the Netherlands. The diameter listed is for the ear pads and the length is for the headband.
