The Swedish brand Happy Plugs are responsible for teaming up with a Stockholm based goldsmith and producing a pair of earphones from 18-carat solid gold. The earphones are handmade, and each earphone and wire cover is molded out of 25g of gold making them some of the most expensive headphones in existence.
The idea being that, as well as playing music, the headphones are also part jewellery and accessory, and the ultimate in fashion/wealth statement. Retailing for a little under £9000, the 18ct Happy Plugs look set to enhance your audio experience even if they do considerably diminish your bank balance.
If they happen to be a little out of your price range, the headphone brand offers more accessible metallic versions in gold & silver alongside other colours for around £20.
