Those ubiquitous white cords dangling from ears everywhere or even celebrity endorsed earphones may make many forget that there are other options for listening to music — some very
expensive options. Listed as one of the world’s most expensive pair of luxury headphones
, with some (but not all, of course) saying they are the best they’ve ever listened to – the elusive Sennheiser Orpheus HE90 headphones were on hand at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show
for eager ears wanting to hear if price matches quality.
This was a special occasion for those wanting to experience the capability of these electrostatic headphones, as they were produced in a limited batch, 300 to be exact. Typically sold now for the price of a car, these aren't for your treadmill workouts. The Sennheiser Orpheus is hand assembled and constructed with gold plated contacts, which we might forget in this day and age works as a great conductor. It also comes with an eye-catching 90-tube amplifier which powers the headphones, and with its chrome finish and stylish construction, would alone sit well in any open space.
