When it comes to the bling and jazz in gizmos, audio lovers take their headphones seriously. We have earlier told you about Dr Dre most expensive headphones, besides Final Audio Design's $8,000 stainless steel headphones. Th latest offering is the 18K yellow gold and black diamond studded ‘Monster’ headphones, which will set back its buyers by $30,000. Perfect for Spiderman fans or even Lady Gaga, this headphone will be sporting a diamond studded black spider on both the ear pieces.
Monster Audio collaborated with the Korean artist Sally John and Pure Monster Sound technology to create these headphones. Noted audio engineer and CEO of Monster Audio, Noel Lee was the reason for the fine tuning of the device, in order to enable it turn out to as close to perfection as possible. The precious fabrication, which will perhaps give the product more attention than anything else, is a 18K yellow gold shell along with the 5.56 carat worth black diamond’s which make the spider on the earpieces.
It was perhaps very aptly said by Noel Lee, that “The creation of the Diamond Tears was truly a labor of love for us, and being able to work with such a talented, ahead-of-the-curve designer as Sally to craft such a special, museum-quality work of art was really the icing on the cake”.
Word has it that over 100 hours of labor go into creating each of these $30,000 Diamond Tears headphones. Seems like the gold carving and spider diamonds were really worked upon with precision. For those who prefer a minimalistic yet stylish version of the headphone, there is also the Rose gold edition available in a limited edition of just 5 pairs. However, how much will the lucky buyers pay for each of these 5 pairs, remains to be seen.
