Grado RS2e
Grado SR80e

Noah Baumbauch’s While We’re Young is a hilarious film that pits Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts’ accomplished forty-somethings against Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried’s young, free spirits. The film gets a lot of mileage out of the couples’ generational divide: In a key scene, Driver hands over his headphones to pump Stiller up with “Eye Of The Tiger” and he remarks “I remember when this song was just considered bad.” It’s a great character moment, but you’d be forgiven if you were distracted by Driver’s killer headphones, a beautiful pair from Grado.

If you’d like to get your hands on a pair of Grado headphones, The A.V. Club has a great opportunity for you: We’ll be selecting one reader to win a pair of Grado’s woodgrain RS2e’s and two runners-up to receive a pair of the company’s SR80e headphones. All three winners will also snag a copy of the While We’re Young soundtrack on vinyl, signed by Noah Baumbauch himself. The soundtrack, as curated by LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, is a great collection of new compositions and some “golden oldies.” And, yeah, “Eye Of The Tiger” is included.
