In a partnership, the unusual, the Grado, one of the most traditional manufacturers of headphones, has invited the actor Elijah Wood, who among other things is DJ (and who is not?) to assist in the development of the design of a new headphone brand. As if this were not enough, also appears in the tradicionalíssima distillery irish Bushmills to provide the wood that was used in the coating of the accessory coming directly out of their barrels of whisky!
After 5 months of work, counting also with the collaboration of DJ and musicianZach Cowie, has hit the market the Headphone Bushmills X Grado with a beautiful vintage touch in its finish of oak and the handle covered with leather, an item that very fond of music and design will want in your studio.
Despite having been released only in the U.S., the virtual store Turntable Labclaims to sell the piece to any part of the world. I tried to do a test purchase, but the product is out of stock, so I wish best of luck to those who want to shell out $ 395 at this little beauty.
