Talk about collector edition headphones and the name that comes to the mind is the Monster Diamond Tears Sally Sohn Edition Headphones. Harrods, a premier name in luxury, beauty, and fragrance, is now the home to the new Monster headphones. Diamond Tears Sally Sohn Edition Headphone is a stab in the heart of the traditional, trendy, and chic headphones that are flooding the global market. This is not just a headphone, it is a complete jewelry set worth $30,000.
Wondering why so much ruckus about the price? You really need to get your hands on to it to know why it is worth 30k. The Sally Sohn Edition Headphone is the byproduct of the collaboration between Monster Audio and Sally Sohn, the Korean jewelry designer. It is a concept headphone and the idea was to bring together state-of-the art Monster sound technology and designer jewelry to create one of the most artistic headphones ever made.
The Monster Diamond Tears is an ode to bling headphones, created to make heads turn. This on-ear headphone is plated with 18 carat gold, and as if all the gold was not enough, there are diamonds too. A black spider has been created on the ear cover, and it is encrusted with 5.56 carat black diamond. Now, that’s a really neat and expensive crawler! Wonder how much time it might have taken to create this collector’s item? It took in excess of 100 hours to create this headphone, and it has been completely handcrafted.
Here’s what Noel Lee, Monster CEO had to say about their near perfect headphone, “The creation of the Diamond Tears 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 craft such a special, museum-quality work of art was really the icing on the cake.”
So what are the real features of the headphone, apart from the gold and diamonds?
At the end of the day, it is a monster headphone created using advanced sound technology, so you are bound to be floored by the sound quality. The salient aspects of the Monster Diamond Tears Sally Sohn Edition Headphones are:
High-performance Monster Sound™
Pillow-soft ear cushions
Clear, articulate, natural audio
ControlTalk for Apple and ControlTalk Universal
The eye-catching design elements of the Monster Diamond Tears Sally Sohn Edition Headphone is supported by bass, that is definitely not overbearing and a more balanced or neutral sound profile. One of the important aspects of this 30k closed-back headphone is that the sound is fairly open. Basically, even though the looks are extremely appealing, Monster has made sure that the sound quality doesn’t take a beating.
Finally, it all boils down to that one thing – aesthetics. With all the diamonds and gold luster, the overall aesthetic value of the phone is rather high. It is completely loaded with the “bling factor” and you have guessed it right – the target audience is women. After all, they say diamonds are a woman’s best friend!
