Music, every human's soul mate. Whether we are happy, sad, or just looking for something to lighten up the mood, music has always been there for us.
Wood, may be considered a music instrument's soul mate. As a material, wood has the advantage over plastic or even metal. It has a unique acoustic properties which helps produce sound in its clearest form.
Grain Audio, is a Pennsylvania based company that uses wood to create the acoustic
chamber (housing) of their speakers/headphones drivers.
" We eat, breathe and sleep music. We spend most of our time looking to discover inspiration, whether that’s the latest great indie rock band, or a lesser known funk group from the ‘70s that we've just unearthed. Music is never background noise. We live it."
The quote above is is what makes Grain Audio unique, their love for music is their driven passion. With that passion Grain Audio managed to raise $155,823 with their Kickstarter project in 2013.

All of Grain Audio products are made with Certified Walnut wood and a hand-applied oil finish. The wood, not only makes the product look good and authentic, it makes the product sound great.
Below is our review of Grain Audio OEHP.01 over the ear headphones.
Not to bash any other manufacturers, but lately many companies have been introducing audio products with sound, bass, treble, etc... enhancement. All of these enhancements are actually a feature consumers look for when purchasing headphones/speakers, and to be completely honest I was one of those consumers.
When looking to purchase an audio product, the bass enhancement feature was a top priority until I listened to music with a set of Grain Audio over the ear headphones. I was surprised how much sound detail I have been missing.
The sound quality of Grain Audio OEHP.01 recreates an accurate representation of the music exactly as was intended by the musician during the recording. Grain Audio OEHP.01 changed my entire perspective of what should be considered when judging characteristics of sound. These headphones have set a new standard for me when it comes to sound quality.
The transparent, easy to hear sound, with sharp time response, and no distortion, (which is comparable to clarity and reveals all aspects of detail) is achieved by Grain Audio's proprietary driver that features a Neodymium magnet and a CCAW voice coil.
These headphones look unique, and authentic. The oil finished Walnut wood is the centerpiece of these beautiful headphones.
The leather ear cups, the cable, and the rest of the frame has a light grey color which enhances the look of the wood.
In addition, this design did not compromise comfort. The headphones are very light and extremely comfortable. The memory foam padded ear cups hug the ears gently, and eliminate pressure on the ear when wearing the headphones for long hours. These ears cups can also create a great isolation for noise cancellation.
The Grain Audio OEHP has a sound quality, and comfort that makes it the quintessential headset. For better mobile experience, however, the company might consider making the cable jack an L/elbow shape .
If you are looking for the ultimate sound experience you must try Grain Audio OEHP. These headphones are truly a complete package with amazingly accurate sound quality,unique design, and comfort. We give it 5 TechPicks stars ★★★★★
