Gilded Age: $5,000 Belgian headphones sound ‘crystal clear’


Wow, a pair of £3,500 ($5,150) headphones. All of a sudden, headphones from the likes of Ultimate Ears and Shure don’t seem expensive at all.

What makes this pair so expensive? It’s made from 18 karat gold and has 118 diamonds sprinkled all over. (Again, diamonds are evil.) Also, the headphones are Belgian, created by “top jeweler” Casa Gi. That adds a few quid to the price, no doubt.

Keeping with the shiny things metaphors, the Telegraph says the headphones “give a crystal clear sound.” They damn well better for that kind of money.

Naturally, the headphones are intended for sports stars or “actors,” people paid extraordinary amounts of money to play make-believe in front of a camera.
