World's Most Expensive Pair of Headphones
Anonymous Reader writes "The exterior of the Grado RS1 headphones is exuberant with handcrafted mahogany earpieces that are made using an intricate curing process. The inner area of the earpieces is based on an open-air configuration that outlines the actual earpiece with comfortable edges instead of a standard cup design. At the beginning, it may take some time getting used to, but after a while, it shouldn’t be an issue. You can also resize the headphones via the two sliders towards of the top of each earpiece. And to further justify the value of the hefty price tag, Grado uses leather for the headband, which makes it durable as well as comfortable."
