getting barak obama to handwind you some headphones probably. should run you around 3-4 countries, maybe even a sub-continent.


on topic:

now i'm no headphone guru, but i'm guessing custom made 'boutique' headphones

Most people would say Sennheiser Orpheus or Stax SR-009.

In production: Stax SR-009, at just over $5000


Out of production, there are some "legendary" headphones that come up on the used market every now and then, for nearly that cost or more, like the Sony MDR-R10 or the Sennheiser Orpheus. Opinions vary on what's really the best, but the Orpheus is probably the most expensive, unless some celebrity custom-made a pair of Monster Beats encrusted in real diamonds.

The Stax SR-009, no question.  Period.  End of discussion.  They piss all over the HE90s

They're only the most expensive headphones out there....

Everyone's preference, when it comes to sound, is different so might as well go with the most expensive right?
