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).

Sounds awesome it has the best pasive isolation I have heard ever and clear basses and clear trebles so it sounds clearly awesome. also thanks for taking care of every details and make it with really good materials. I just can say thanks a lot for doing this high end product!
Not many products combine the past and the future in a such an elegant way. Wood casing brings a touch of luxury, while being made of recycled material. A win-win situation! As it is from a recycled furniture, each casing has a slightly different wood grain, therefore the earphones definitely feel unique!
And the future? That's inside, and it's really thin. Versarien, to company I am supporting through the purchase, produced the Nanene diaphragm that makes sure the sound is clear on both ends of the spectrum. A good balance of bass and treble makes this product not only visually attractive, but very fit for purpose as well.
Other handy perk is the set of 4 earbud sizes - and that make a bigger difference than I thought it would!
Overall very happy with these! Thanks Neill and Callum!
power and unmatched sound quality with incomparable clarity. indispensable for those who enjoy music.
I’ve had these earphones now for about 2 weeks and wanted to give them a fair trial before reviewing. Over the last two weeks I’ve been trying to find a fault, with either the build or sound quality, there has to be based on the price? So far I’m coming up empty handed. Everything sound wise I’ve thrown at them has been perfectly handled. Bass is right, mids are clear and the treble is crisp. So far my favourite find (and timely based on his death) is Firestarter, the song sounds so much different on these that it’s like listening to it for the first time. If I had to find one thing wrong it would be (to me) the relatively poor quality of the silicon inserts. These are too soft in my opinion and need to be slightly harder. Otherwise definitely money well spent.
I have taken a fair amount of time to respond to this request.Long experience has shown me that often the better the product the longer the burn in time before the true character emerges. No more so than with these in ear phones.
The initial impression was as expected over bright cluttered and dynamically stifled. This is a gross misrepresentation and injustice if taken as the real quality.
After some weeks the butterfly emerged from the ugly christalis. An what a beauty this turned out to be far beyond my expectations and out performed my quad-driver eight times more expensive phones that were my mainstay.
The cluttered initial treble morphed into a highly detailed balanced and dynamically accurate sound scape. Which was true of the entire phonic spectrum
Micro dynamics and detail held against large volume shifts which not an easy thing to achieve.
I have now reached the point where this product is the source of my main listening. Why, because I have now forgotten to analyse its qualities of its sound.
Music is what I'm hearing and genuinely achieving an emotional experience.
I will emphasise this is a rare outcome and you are to be congratulated.
Two minor suggestions for further development. To achieve these results i have used my foam earbuds which mould to the ear canal and offered decided benefits.These could perhaps with a small price increase be included in future.
Additionally having experimented with both copper and silver wires in my main hifi system eventually decided on cast copper cryogenically treated. This has had the effect of lowering the overall noise floor and revealing more of the musical qualities.Experimentation could build on what is already an outstanding quality and ludicrous and I repeat ludicrous value for money. Well done.
