The $55,000 Sennheiser Orpheus Headphones

In 1991 Sennheiser created the best headphones in the world and called it Orpheus. Now it has been reborn and equipped with unique features and state of the art technology to transform music from something you listen to, into something you live in. The striking design sees the amplifiers housed in glass tubes on a solid block of Carrara marble. Each dial is milled from a single piece of brass and plated with chrome. The Orpheus combines tube amplifiers and transistor amplifiers to produce an audio range from 8 Hz to more than 100 kHz and the lowest distortion ever measured in a sound reproduction system.
