Grain Audio chose wood as the medium for its fine purveyors of audio bliss for 3 reasons: sound; sight; and touch. (To complete the 5 senses quintet, I went ahead and smelled and licked my Grain PWS Bluetooth speaker when I got one last year and can report that it definitely wasn't the worst thing I ever held to my nose or ran along my tongue.) The newest addition to the Grain collection, these solid wood Over-Ear Headphones (OEHP), are stripped down to a clean, elegant aesthetic that produces clear and balanced sound.

Grain feels that wood captures a resonance that plastics and composites cannot. While the latter are hard and acoustically reflective, natural wood materials retain a softer nature, with more porous surfaces that help attenuate high frequency sound and create a "warmer" output. The company also points out that the uniqueness in their source's composition--even within a single tree--guarantees that no 2 pieces will ever be exactly the same. Each customer gets an original. An original, Grain says, that will feel as good in the hand as it does in the ears and eyes. The walnut they use, combined with Grain's hand-applied oil finish, "has a tactile quality that makes you want to touch it, run your fingers over it."

The Grain OEHP features FSC-certified solid walnut enclosures and proprietary drivers with neodymium magnets and CCAW voice coils. They have no fake boost or mid-range enhancers. The package includes a 1-1/4" phone adapter for use of the inline mic and a soft carrying case. Get your Grain wood headphones for 64% off for a limited time.
