In a day and age where gadgets are trying to make the best use of technological advancements, Eight chooses to go back to the roots of basic acoustics. It’s made by hand from Walnut and Birdseye Maple, and inspired by the shape of the human ear to give you the best quality of sound. Besides the iPhone, nothing else about it is electronic.
Every Eight is made to order, which means instead of mass producing, they choose to conserve the wood and harvest only when needed. It’s delivered within 2 to 4 weeks from the date of order.
The wait is well worth it when you know it keeps the Mother Nature happy. The design is not just to catch your eye. Every nook and cranny of it is designed in a way that makes the sound better. Its attention to detail is phenomenal.
Eight comes with a lightning cable to charge your iPhone while using it. It’s specifically designed to allow easy access to TouchID and also acts as a receiver, which comes with a built-in microphone that amplifies your voice when on call.
At $288 it might seem a little expensive, but the price is actually quite justified when you think about the effort that goes into making it from wood, crafting with hands and oiling it.
