The most expensive headphones today are priced at $20,000 and higher. As of the end of the year 2011, the most expensive headphone on the market was Sennheiser's Orpheus, which was priced at $40,854.24 in the US and £30,000 in the UK. Although headphone aficionados do not anticipate a decrease in the price of this particular headphone, they do expect that another brand will soon take its place as the most expensive model in the market this year 2012.

Why are these so expensive? One thing that is really difficult for common folks to understand is why these headphones are sold so expensively. You can get one for ten bucks, or even cheaper in some places around the world. The question of why these are so expensive really frustrates people who are not into music.

The reason why the most expensive headphones are sold at unbelievably high prices is twofold. First, it has to do with the fact that these headphones are utterly high in quality, utterly popular and offer superbly amazing sounds. The second part of the reason is that these headphones are collector's items in and of themselves.

If there are collectors of antiques and other old items out there, there are also collectors of the most expensive gadgets and accessories. They are most likely among the music crowd, but they can also be just anybody who has interests for expensively priced digital accessories like headphones.

Expensive headphones like these are often hand-assembled. They come with intricate frequency technologies and high quality amplifiers. An open-back electrostatic design, which is seen in the Orpheus, is just an example of the intricate detail that is put on the headphone itself.

On the outside, these headphones are nothing like typical listening devices. On the inside, they are powered with brand new technologies, some of which are not even out in the market as of yet. Expensive headphones feature synthesizing, distortion removal and noise canceling, among many other audio quality improvement features. That is on top of the self-evident audio quality these headphones already have. The other entries that make the list of the most expensive headphones are as the Ultrasone Edition 10 and 9, Grado PS1000, Shure SE530, the MXWI, Ultimate Ears TripleFi, and Westone 3.

At the first glance of an untrained eye, these headphones may look no different compared to run-of-the-mill headphones. However, the intricate design and detail that can only be seen by the eyes of avid collector, as well as the undeniable quality that can only be heard by trained ears, are the real reason why these headphones are so expensive.

The question now is, can you afford the most expensive headphones? You may have thought before that these headphones are just unbelievably expensive, and that there is no real difference. Now that you are a little bit enlightened as to the reasons why these headphones are expensive, it does raise a question if you know which one is the best for your needs. Have a look at some of these really expensive listening accessories then make a decision based on the advanced features and the budget you can spare for your musical accessory collection.
