Grado Headphones Handmade From Whiskey Barrels

What’s so unique about these headphones is not just that they’re made from actual whiskey barrels, which is pretty amazing on its own, but the story behind them is also pretty fascinating. Actor Elijah Wood (yes, Frodo) is apparently quite the audiophile, and he and his DJing partner Zach Cowie designed these truly unique cans along with help from Bushmills Irish Whiskey and the headphone legends at Grado.

The Bushmills x Grado Labs Headphone is handcrafted from the recycled white oak bodies from the wood of old barrels from Bushmills Distillery in Ireland. Featuring Grado’s first vented back design and a custom brown leather headband, these headphones promise to deliver Grado’s classic sound with a story that just can’t be beat. That is, unless you have an Ian McKellen-designed turntable made out of rhino horns. [Purchase]
