What does Elijah Wood and Bushmills Whiskey have in common? It turns out the answer isn’t what I expected it to be either. The two have teamed up in a collaboration to produce a pair of headphones made by Grado Labs, a headphone maker in Brooklyn, and Wood and his DJ partner Zach Cowie (who make up the DJ duo Wooden Wisdom) helped spec out the design and give them a test before putting them out in the market.
From The Verge:
Bushmills Whiskey has partnered with Grado to produce a limited edition set of headphones partially made from whiskey barrels. But the collaboration that resulted in the “Bushmills x Grado” headphones was even larger than that. Actor Elijah Wood and Zach Cowie — who perform together as DJ Wooden Wisdom — personally designed the headphones over a period of five months.
Here’s a video showing a little more about how the collaboration came together:
