Grado Bushmills X - Grado's first closed-back headphone? - Page 2

post #16 of 666
The vented sides sound a bit like what was in the old Denon series and the new Fostex headphones.

They look great, and I'm hoping they sound great too I'd love a pair of headphones that look that nice for on-the-go.

Hmm I am extremely curious how they might sound given the Grado house sound is so airy and aggressive.

So I'm thinking they're going to sound like the 325is or the RS2i's, because the specs fall in between these two model, although these are vented, so who knows, but I can't wait to hear some reviews!!! I am very tempted to order a pair right now but I already own three different Grado models, so I'm trying really hard not to place an order!!!

Elijah Wood helped design limited edition Grado headphones made from whiskey barrels http://t.co/h0JvQqjCW3

The Verge just picked this up.

Ordered a pair. I'm too curious to pass it up. I've always wanted a closed grado for when an open headphone just won't do...

I tried very hard to not order... and failed.

Being closed is going to be interesting.
Sadly I prefer the ps500 sound over the rs2.
Hopefully with the closed back they get a bit of low end punch??

Just saw this. Just bought them. I’m just too curious to hear how they sound with that closed (well, vented) back. I already have the RS1i so it should be an interesting comparison.

 

I also see that the pics on turntable lab show them with comfy pads. Yeah, I don’t think I’ll be keeping those on for long. I got spare flat pads and bowls to try on this headphone.

So tempted to order a pair - very curious.... Do you think they approached Elijah Wood because of his surname. Would they have made it out of Aluminum if his name was Elijah Alloy?

From Grado's Facebook page:

 

 

"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!"

Annnnndddd I just ordered them :P

 

Couldn't help it!

 

I love Whiskey... I love audio.... My god if these smell of whiskey and leather....

 

lol in seriousness, it was an impulse buy and depending on how it goes, there may be a pair of p7's or a pair of closed grado's for sale haha.

They look really nice, I love the headband.

 

I am really not a fan of closed headphones, but if they had that Grado sound signature, that would be very nice, indeed.
