Tivoli Audio has released its first active noise cancelling headphones, Radio Silenz.

The new Tivoli Audio Radio Silenz headphones are distributed in Australia by International Dynamics. ‘Radio Silenz headphones feature real wood housings that provide a more natural sound, making them the perfect listening device for home, office or on the airplane,’ said Sam Encel, of International Dynamics. ‘The genuine solid wood ear cups together with the high performance 40mm drivers provide excellent sound quality and low resonance. At the same time, the headphones are lightweight and comfortable to wear.

The closed back, padded on-ear design of the Radio Silenz allows rotation through 90 degrees so it can be folded for compact, easy transport in the own travel pouch supplied, and the headphones come standard with a gold-plated 3.5 mm right-angle stereo plug, airline adapter, and a compact control unit with a pocket clip. Tivoli Audio claims the Radio Silenz can operate for up to 50 hours on a single AAA battery. The headphones can be used with the noise cancellation switched on or off, and there’s a ‘defeat’ button that will temporarily switch off the noise cancelation and fade down the audio, allowing conversation or for an announcement to be heard without having to remove the headphones or switch the noise cancellation off and on again.

In remaining true to our design culture at Tivoli Audio, we created Radio Silenz to maximise musical listening experiences by combining the acoustic advantages of natural woods with the technology of active noise cancelation,’ said Tom DeVesto, Tivoli Audio Founder, CEO and Designer. ‘The result is a headphone design that has a distinctive look for the discerning listener.

Radio Silenz active noise-cancelling (ANC) headphones are available in three wood finishes: Walnut, Cherry, and Black Ash. Available now, they sell for $199 (RRP).
