Today we’d like to introduce the limited edition Bushmills x Grado Headphones, made from their whiskey barrels. About six months ago, Bushmills came to us and asked if we’d be able to make headphones out of whiskey barrels. Not only was that something we had never done, but a design challenge we couldn’t pass up. We accepted.
Those who know us know that sound comes first, and if we couldn’t get it to have our Grado sound, we wouldn’t have gone through with it. The end result is our first closed back headphone, this doesn’t mean sealed though. We had to reengineer our open design to achieve the Grado sound on this model.
Bushmills brought us into their “Since Way Back” series and even had Elijah Wood and Zach Cowie come in on the project. We were surprised by how huge audiophiles they were, and that they had been using Grado for years. It’s nice working with people who are genuinely enthusiastic about Grado, and sound quality in general. A big thank you to Bushmills, Elijah, and Zach for bringing us into their family and giving us this opportunity. Happy Listening!
