We have a headphone obsession. Kind of. Actually, more than “kind of”. It’s a full blown, level 5 headphone obsession. And guess what? We made a headphone pin.

Grado Headphones Pin 11

More specifically, Pintrill did. We had heard that Pintrill existed and that they’re a Brooklyn company as well. Jonathan Grado contacted them to make special gold pins just for the company, and Pintrill had a bigger idea. So there is the gunmetal headphone version and the gold version. The gunmetal pin is available on Pintrill’s site in extremely limited quantity, whereas, the gold headphone pin is only given out on very rare occasions. We wanted it to mean something. This picture sums it up quite nicely:

I got the first gold #GradoPin! Now to pin it everywhere at the same time…Nice work @gradolabs & @pintrill
