Onkyo H900M

Price: Onkyo H900M with 20-carat diamonds – $100,000 (approx. £82,000)

Sennheiser HE1060/HEV1060 Orpheus

Price: $68,000

The Sennheiser HE1060/HEV1060 Orpheus is priced for its exceptional performance. The level of acceptable distortion is only 0.01% at 1 kHz at a volume of 100 dB. In addition, the headphones are electrostatic, instead of the usual membrane for us, which is oscillated by electromagnetic impulses, these headphones use a very thin and elastic film, which is fixed between two electrodes. They are accompanied by a special high-frequency amplifier, which reveals the full potential of the headphones to the maximum extent. The difficulty of manufacturing this product limits the number of copies produced within one year. So, on average, the production of one set takes about 400 hours. This aspect affects their cost.
