At the end of a busy semester, we need a post that is not very serious. So, here’s our offering, complete with a video.
Let’s consider: We can buy Insignia Wireless Bluetooth Headphones for $59.99 at Amazon; Bose SoundLink around-ear wireless headphones for $279.95 at Amazon; and Beats Studio Wireless Over-Ear Headphones for $379.95 at Amazon. So, what headphones could possibly be worth $50,000?
Enter Orpheus headphones from Sennheiser. As reported by Bloomberg:
“Sennheiser showed off the new Orpheus headphones on November 10, 2015 in New York and Bloomberg Pursuits’ Stephen Pulvirent got a first look. There are over 6,000 individual components, including everything from the tiniest transistors to the all-natural white Carrera marble housing in each pair. Materials such as gold and platinum-plated ceramic are used throughout for maximum conductivity and performance, but all those bells and whistles don’t come cheap. The Orpheus will set you back $50,000.”
Take a look at the YouTube video from Bloomberg. Are YOU in? (LOL)
