Nic Healey can usually be found on a couch muttering about aspect ratios and 7.1 channel sound - which is helpful given that he's the home entertainment guy at CNET.

Grado is well known for its penchant for incorporating wood into its headphone range.

Now, the company has made an unlikely team-up. Working with Bushmills Whiskey plus DJ Wooden Wisdom — the performing name of Elijah Wood and Zach Cowie — the company has made a range of limited-edition headphones from whiskey barrels.

According to The Verge, the US$395 headphones, called Bushmills x Grado, are crafted from "recycled white-oak bodies from the wood of old barrels" from the Bushmills distillery.

These are coupled with a leather headband, the obligatory presentation box and a nice velvet bag.

In terms of actual specs, the cans have dynamic transducers, with a frequency response of 16hz-26kHz and nominal impedance of 32 ohms.

The Bushmills x Grado headphones are exclusive to the US-based Turntable Lab, and, yes, it does have overseas shipping options.
