Serious about your music? Then grab yourself a pair of equally serious cans, like the Grado RS1i Reference Series Headphones ($700). These high-end personal speakers features handcrafted Mahogany earpieces, upgraded dynamic transducers and a new 8 conductor cable design that offers more lively sound than the RS1, an open-backed cup configuration, and an astronomical price.
Having been spotted on countless stages and in myriad music videos, Marshall's iconic script logo has decided it wants some new real estate: your ears. These Marshall Major Headphones ($100) promise to offer up all the clean, heavy sound of the company's amps and speaker cabinets in a much smaller, over-the-ear headphone thanks to 15.4mm moving coil drivers, cushy black pads, a collapsable design, amp-matching cups, and a MP3 player-friendly 3.5mm plug.

If you've been searching for ridiculously overpriced headphones to match that $19,000 turntable you bought a while back, search no more. The Ultrasone Edition 10 Headphones ($2,750) come with eye-popping looks and sound to match their price, featuring open-back ear cups with galvanic Ruthenium plating and a Zebrano wood inlay, Ethiopian sheepskin leather ear cup pads, Titanium-plated 40mm drivers, silver-plated OFC 99.99% pure copper wires with Kevlar casing, S-Logic Pus technology, and a bunch of other high-end nonsense no one will ever notice because your ears will look like zebra.
