After launching New Monster DNA on-ear Headphones by Crystal Rocked, the brand also known for the failure of its financial partnership with Dr Dre on the Beats range of headphones – Monster has teamed up now with Korean artist and designer Sally Sohn to create ultimate in luxe headphones. We’ll see how it will turn out, since Diamond Tears Sally Sohn Edition will be available at Harrods, with a price of amazing £20,000 a pair ($30,000).
The price is “justified” with the fact that headphones are made from 18K gold and 5.56 carats of black diamonds. This ultra-exclusive pair of headphones are hand-made, and took more than 100-hours to craft it.
The headphones feature Monster’s “Pure Monster Sound” technology. As for the headphone’s tuning, they were done by the head of Monster, Noel Lee, who used Monster’s latest proprietary technologies and sonic innovations “to bring the full experience of live music-to-music lovers and concert goers everywhere.”
He said about this awesome piece of technology: “The creation of the Diamond Tears Sally Sohn Edition was truly a labor of love for us, and being able to work with such a talented, ahead-of-the-curve designer as Sally to create such a special, museum-quality work of art was really the icing on the cake.”
If $30,000 doesn’t fit into your budget, you can opt for a standard set of Diamond Tears headphones by Monster which retails for $300.
