John and Jonathan Grado knew they had to incorporate their hometown roots into a design when they got their hands on a maple from Sunset Park, which would have otherwise been repurposed into furniture. Thankfully for us, the result of their vision is not only a real slice of old Brooklyn—it's a damn impressive sounding set of headphones.
Each special limited edition GH1 comes with a signed letter from the Grados in the box. You can snag a pair for $650 online here or at any of Grado's trusted retailers, found here.
