Actor Elijah Wood and Zach Cowie — who perform together as DJ Wooden Wisdom — personally designed the headphones over a period of five months. They are crafted from recycled white oak bodies from the wood of old barrels that come from a Bushmills distillery in Ireland. A leather headband was chosen because, according to Cowie, “it does have a huge shelf life, but it will also show its age.” Of course, the headphones would be nothing without Grado’s revered sound signature. “The expression of the music through the headphones was extraordinary,” says Wood.
