In the 1970s, Andy Shiach was an ambitious musician. However, an ear trauma incident, in a rehearsal studio, put paid to his musical ambition.

Wires and cables have been cluttering up our digital lives for far too long.

We’ve grown to love the minimalist, stylish characteristics of their products and we’re happier than ever to have more of Scandinavia in our homes, in our garages and now, in our ears. Danish company Libratone make headphones and speakers and with their Zipp range of they’ve done something that I wish all audio companies would do; help me get rid of the wires.
