I wouldn't knock CRT tech wholesale if I were you, even if the TVs tend to suck.
My GDM-FW900 wipes the floor with all these new LCDs (doesn't matter if they're LED-backlit, the image is still formed from a LCD) and most plasmas, and it's a decade-old aperture grille CRT. There still isn't a better gaming monitor in existence, and that's just sad.
But to answer the thread topic, yeah, it's not just headphones. ANYTHING you can think of will have some premium variant for a high price, and there will be enthusiasts willing to shell out that extra cash for the very best in quality. Computers, peripherals for said computers (like all the components that go into a flight sim cockpit), vehicles, audio, video, photography, food, you name it, there will be niche top-of-the-line products with a price tag that will make your wallet scream in agony, and your ego that much more satisfied for owning it. (Or eating/drinking it, in some cases.)
