Elijah Wood, more popularly known by his screen name Frodo from the The Lord of The Rings Trilogy, has hidden passions that most people don’t know about and they are music and making headphones. yes, apparently, he loves dabbling with audio cans and therefore, it would seem fitting to see this young celebrity audiophile come together with revered headphone maker Grado Labs to serve up a pair of headphones that would appeal to style conscious audiophiles. the result is the Bushmills x Grado Labs Headphone. what? wait, isn’t Bushmills a whiskey maker? so what has it got to do with headphones? well, officially, it is a collab by Bushmills and Grado Labs, involving Elijah Wood and also LA music maven Zach Cowie, and to better fit the Bushmills-Grado Labs collaboration, these exceedingly gorgeous headphones have earcups fashioned out of white oak bodies from the wood of the old barrels from Bushmills Distillery in Ireland.
other details include a vented back design, Grado’s trademark sound, a custom brown leather headband (adjustable, of course) and each pair of headphones come contained in a limited edition wooden box that looks just as desirable as the audio cans itself. already all pumped and ready to grab one? well, now here’s the deal: this $395 a pair audiophile headphones are sold on the day one, but not all hopes are lost. there is a chance that more sets will be made available, and if it does, you would want to make sure you’d be among the first to know, which you can make sure that happens by signing up for the stock email notification. in the mean time, we invite to catch a few more look of this piece of wonderful product and also a video “making of” video below.
