Whether you're an aspiring club DJ, or a seasoned veteran who has been spinning records in crowded dance halls for years, the Nocs NS900 Headphones ($250) were made with you in mind. Enclosed, interchangeable ear cushions house specially-developed 40 millimeter titanium coated drivers to deliver dynamic, balanced sound, even in spaces filled with the loudest audiences. The durable construction features replaceable parts, a PVD-coated adjustable stainless steel headband with a comfortable inner band, and a range of available cables to connect to just about any device. So, no matter where you find your next gig, you'll have a set of headphones that fits perfectly, sounds great, and will never let you down.
When buying a pair of headphones from the company who invented them, you'd expect a certain level of quality — and that's exactly what you'd get with the Koss ESP950 Electrostatic Headphones ($1,000). Meant for perfectly reproducing any sound in the studio, these headphones feature electrostatic transducers for a flat recency response across the range for clean bass and perfect sound quality.
Even if you don't have your own professional-quality sound studio, it doesn't mean you don't need to listen to your music on a pair of professional-quality JBL Synchros S700 Headphones ($350). These headphones feature aluminum die cast construction with soft leather ear cushions for durability and comfort. The 50 millimeter drivers in each ear offer excellent range, while a powered mode boosts the bass response. A detachable three-button remote on the cord lets you control your iOS device, and includes a built-in microphone in case someone calls you while you're wearing them.
While we can't promise that they sound any better than the pair of earbuds you already have plugged in, we can promise that these Apple Solid Rose Gold Earpods ($25,000) won't leave anyone wondering about your position in life. These one-of-a-kind buds were collaboratively re-envisioned by famed industrial designers Jony Ive and Marc Newsom exclusively for the 2013 RED auction. They are completely coated in 18-karat rose gold (a blend of gold, copper, silver, and zinc), and presented in a custom display case. So whether you choose to display them on your head, or in their handsome case, everyone will know exactly what kind of man you are.
