As a tech blogger, there are few things in this world that I would spend three years’ salary on. These $14,500 18-carat gold earbuds might be just what I’m looking for, though.
What will not eating, not having a place to live and not paying for cable solely so I can watch Tia and Tamera for the next three years get me? According to the Happy Plugs product page:
A Swedish goldsmith in Old Town, Stockholm, makes the headphones by hand. 18-carat solid gold is molded into the shape of the Happy Plugs Earbuds and 25 grams of gold are used for each pair of earphones, which gives the headphones weight as a large jewelry.
If you’re not a high roller like I am, the non-gold versions of these headphones are available in a veritable rainbow of colors and are priced between $25 and $30.
