When we heard La Roux was doing a gig in our home town of Leeds we made sure we were there. Elly's latest album is fantastic bettered only by the live performance she did. Go see her if you get the chance.

 

New Woodbuds

November 11, 2014

New Woodbuds. Available now.

We've recently launched our new woodbuds. This was a great step for us to make, we listened to the feedback from everyone and have changed and updated our earphones. We made some small adjustments:

    • Re-Designed the Housing
    • Added our new Woodbuds Icon
    • Introduced a flat cable
    • Improved our Driver Unit
    • Re-Designed our Packaging for our Retail Partners

Growing our brand

November 11, 2014

Here it is. The new site. We'd been planning this for some time and actually we decided to create this in-house. Having control over what you do and how you do it is important, it feels that little bit sweeter to create something yourself and we hope that you like what we've done here at woodbuds.com.

The main change is a tweak to our branding and icon, we've updated our woodbuds packaging to be more suitable for our retail partners. We've improved the quality, added a flat cable, simplified our website, developed parallax throughout, it's responsive with a super clean process to checkout.

We'll be working hard over the next few months to improve this and add more content. Thanks for supporting us to make to step.

Planting Day

November 11, 2014

We plant Trees.

It's what we do and why we do this that's important. When we started woodbuds it was to give a little back, create the brand we wanted to see in a market where it's all about price and plastic. Thanks to all your support we set up our first Planting Day with the team from the Woodland Trust UK. 

With your help we planted a lot of trees, 775 to be exact. We had a great time, dug holes, got our hands dirty and got cold. It felt great to know that we were doing good actually giving something back. Thanks to all the team that joined us from the Woodland Trust and we can't wait for our next 2015 Planting Day.

Gifts for him.

We come close to Christmas and the team at NotontheHighStreet feature our yellow woodbuds and our wood iPhone cases in their gift guide. The article is all about 'gifts for him' which works out really well for us. You can see our little yellow wood earphones to the right number 11, and our walnut wood iPhone case is number 5.

Bikes. Everywhere.

November 10, 2014

Le Tour Yorkshire. 

Amazing is all we can say. People in Yorkshire came out in the thousands, lining the streets to support Le Grand Depart and Le Tour as the peloton sliced it's way up through the dales. We loved everything about the TDF right on our doorstep, the people, the bikes, the feeling and the bunting. Be proud Yorkshire.

Staff Pick.

We've been working with the team at NotontheHighStreet for around a year, things are going pretty well but it was extra nice to be picked for Lucy's wish list. We suddenly sell out of White woodbuds. 

One year. It's amazing to think that we started this journey a year ago.

So we got together, had some food, coffee, talked about what we've created, what we want to do and where we want to go. We're proud of our journey, and it's only down to everyone that's ordered that we can keep doing what we're doing so thank you.

We'll be developing some new earphones pretty soon to improve what we do. We'll also be updating our website to reflect who we are today.

Thanks for being part of our journey.

We list on Fancy.com in NYC.

November 06, 2014

We get Fancy. Well, kind of, Fancy.com is the place to discover, collect and buy from a crowd-curated catalog of amazing goods, wonderful places and great stores.

We got an email saying they liked us a lot, and could they place a big order, we said yes, and here we are, on Fancy.com.

 

Chris becomes a Tough Mudder

November 06, 2014

Our friends at Toggle make nice things. Cases made by people for machines, they used our earphones in their product shoot, which was cool. We were really flattered, it was unexpected, and we look good together.
