Sennheiser Orpheus

Sennheiser is a leader in the production of a high-end microphone. For Orpheus, Sennheiser use the best possible material to make the headphone one of a kind. Sennheiser install top quality vacuum tube amplifier combine with high end electrostatic that is linked with gold connectors. It is designed for the biggest music fans with a big pocket. Sennheiser retailed it for around $15,000 and it arrived on the store with a label start from $20,000-$30,000. Sennheiser only manufactured 300 pieces of Orpheus. Perhaps Orpheus is not portable, but it surely better than all iPod microphone on the market.

2.ULTRASONE Edition 9 Limited Edition S-Logic Natural Surround Sound Headphone

ULTRASONE Edition 9

Next most expensive headphone in the world is ULTRASONE Edition 9 Limited Edition S-Logic Natural Surround Sound Headphone. The long name is coming with long price tag. The producer said ULTRASONE Edition 9 offers three dimensional surround sound same a live concert surround system quality. The Eardrum pressure is mere 3-4dB or reduce 40% compare to a conventional headphone. ULTRASONE 9 operates with ULE technology combine with MU metal shield to lower sound radiation nearly 100%(98% to be exactly). This headphone is retailed cheaper than first Orpheus. The retail price is only $1.499. If you think you had better buy new iPod or iPhone rather than purchasing a headphone worth close to $1500, you have same opinion with me
