You're definitely an audiophile if you'd rather save up for this than a car.
Your ears are definitely pampered with this self-proclaimed best headphones in the world by Sennheiser. The redesigned iconic Orpheus HE90 has a price tag of $55,000 surpassing the previous $16,000 cost of the first ones which came out back in 1991. You're definitely a true blue music-lover if you'd rather save up for this than a car.
Designed 25 years ago, there were only 300 pairs of the first Orpheus HE90 produced, making it a legendary piece of headphones every audiophile aspired to have. Today, the updated version is a sight to behold (as it should be for that ridiculously expensive price) as it is hand-crafted in Germany using over 6,000 components that include its platinum vaporized diaphragms, a Carrara marble amplifier housing from Italy which even the famous Michaelangelo used, and gold-vaporized ceramic electrodes.
After 10 years of tinkering, updating, and making sure it's worth every penny, Sennheiser experts unveiled how this modern-day Orpheus exceeds its predecessor. Those beautiful metals that make up this music beast add up to the conduction and utilization of its unparalleled sound. The magnificence of these headphones are shown from the moment you turn it on with a show of its own as the chrome-plated brass knobs from the amplifier extends and the eight quartz-encased vacuum tubes glowing as it rises from the base.
With that price tag, you already know by now that the Orpheus HE90 means serious sound quality at its finest.
With that price tag, you already know by now that the Orpheus HE90 means serious sound quality at its finest. This is not the headphones for simply listening to your favorite songs on Spotify or watching that new video on YouTube. Sennheiser makes sure that the quality of these headphones is a cut above the rest with the digital amplification that comes with each pair, which guarantees to reduce any interference that cabling may introduce. There's also Digital-to-Analog converters which can rate up your listening experience to at 384 kHz, something which your usual headphones can't give you as it usually just provide 20-25 kHz.
Surely, if you have the money and that dream of owning one of the most luxurious musical paraphernalia ever created then it's time to save up as these babies come out next year!
