Gift Idea: High-End Headphones Made from Whiskey Barrels

Anyone who knows anything about whiskey and scotch knows that a big part of any brew’s secret sauce are the barrels in which the nectar is aged.

Grado, the high-end headphone manufacturer, believes some of the magic in that whiskey-infused wood can be transformed into a glorious audio experience.

The new Bushmills x Grado headphones are made from barrels no longer needed by the Irish distillery. The cost? About $400.

They look great–how how od they sound?  See what Gizmodo has to say.
