Ultrasone Edition 8 Headphones
Some headphones are pricey because they are covered in glittery doodads but the Edition 8 headphones from Ultrasone are a more understated form of luxe. The headphones use the company's S-Logic Plus technology to deliver a sound that gives the listener a better sense of "spacious tonal perception." The headphones are created for the "audio connoisseur" with tender ears, the interior ear cups are covered in Ethiopian sheepskin which is said to provide the most isolation. The outer ear cups get their shine from a heavy coat of ruthenium. Each pair comes in a leather case for storage and sells for $1,499.
