MediaDevil Artisanphonics CB-01 Earphones | Noise-isolating Premium Wood Earphones with Nanene® Graphene-Enhanced Audio
Audio Innovation from the Winner of the UK Department of Trade & Investment's Business Innovation Award.
Our CB-01's outer-housing combines aerospace-grade aluminium with luxury wood reclaimed from luxury furniture manufacturers, which would otherwise have been wasted. The wood housing provides superior acoustic performance and makes each pair of earphones visually unique.
Nanene® Graphene-Enhanced Audio:
Nanene's incredible properties enabled us to produce an earphone diaphragm that is thinner and more flexible than traditional materials will allow. Independent testing conducted by a leading British premium audio company found that, remarkably, Nanene enhances both the high-end (treble) and the low-end (bass) of the audio frequency wave. Why introduce Nanene-enhanced earphones at such a low price? Well, we believe that Nanene is versatile enough to benefit both ends of the price spectrum and our CB-01 model brings premium audio to a mass market audience.
We have configured the drivers of the CB-01 to produce powerful sound with vibrant bass and balanced musical detail. They punch well above their weight in terms of sound quality.
To prolong cable life, we chose a reinforced cable with a 135-degree angled, reinforced 3.5mm connector jack. The lower half of the cable has a braided fabric outer to minimise tangling (the top half of the cable has a plastic outer to minimise noise friction).
Control Functions (iOS and Android compatible):
The control hub integrated into the cable has a microphone and three command buttons. Two provide volume control buttons, and can also be used to take photos when your phone's camera app is open. The third button answers & ends phone calls and controls music and playback, using the following click-commands:
- Play/Pause music/video
- Answer incoming phone call
- End phone call
- Skip to the next song/video
- Start current song/video again
- Play previous song/video
Nanene is a few-layer version of the environmentally friendly super-material graphene, produced in the UK using a patented manufacturing process. First discovered at the University of Manchester in 2004, graphene is a one-atom-thick layer of carbon that has incredible physical properties. High-purity graphene is widely expected to revolutionise the materials industry, and it can finally now be used in real-world applications. The Nanene standard was established to act as a beacon of guaranteed graphene purity and performance.
As with any good quality earphones, it is imperative that you use the correct fitting earbuds. This seals the ear canal and produces a much higher quality sound (it really makes a very big difference).

These earphones are exceptional. They are easily on par with headphones from major brands costing twice the price. The detail in the sound is first class with great bass and sharp and precise hearing of the instruments and vocals . Build quality is superb and the storage bag is another plus point. All done with environmentally friendly packaging. The use of wood enhances both the appearance and the bass tones. Strongly recommend ,
I ordered these at 5pm on a Friday, received them the next morning!! How?! I was in shock. The “thank you for purchasing” auto-email was a nice touch & put me at ease too, I’m aware everyone gets them but it felt personal. The headphones arrived with a neat little sweet treat in there too! ;) Thank you! My favourite flavours as well x
Headphones packaged very nicely, sufficient information provided, amazing feel & build, some very good looking earphones! The sound is very strong, I’m no audio expert but they definitely sound high-end, better than my Sennheisers & beats so this is a great upgrade! They seem durable but the warranty puts me at enough ease anyway.
Very good, accurate, detailed headphones at a very reasonable price.
I was astonished at how much better they are than the phones supplied with my Galaxy S20
My order arrived some 5 weeks after purchase (not Mediadevil's fault, tracking shows it was promptly expedited; must've sat with Canada Customs for awhile, with COVID and holidays and what not). Enjoyment begins the moment you open the envelope. The product's packaging is superb, and shows close attention to detail. I won't give spoilers here, but it really leaves an impression of care for quality and customer experience. The products look well-built, and the cord doesn't look like it'll split open in a few years (looking at *you*, Etymotic). Then I quickly tried out the earphones, and I'll echo several comments found below: grin on my face, and the impression I'll be rediscovering much of the music I currently own. I put on Bach's Chaconne for violin: deep and profound; then Golijov's Tenebrae rendered by the Kronos Quartet: I felt as if I was hovering between the four musicians, no less. Then Pink Floyd's One of These Days, same (hovering perhaps a bit higher here). Heck, even with Rachel Maddow's podcast I felt like I was sitting right next to her. These will make you feel like you're nothing more than eardrums and auditory cortex. My landline phone 18" away rang during the Bach and I became aware of it only because of it's lit-up display. Skull sounds are amplified, mind you. You can hear every detail of your [insert bodily growth/movement/secretion of your choice]. I'm of course exaggerating here, but my point is that the experience is really immersive. Add to that the maple wooden case and the Magicscreen™ from the same company, which turned me into Gollum stroking his Precious, and you've got yourself a very satisfying sensory experience.
When I saw the description I was a little sceptical. When I received and tested them out however my mind was changed completely. These sound amazing, both the high and low end is very well represented with shimmer and detail on the high end. Mids are warm and wide. I actually hear little details in my music I have never heard before.
