Next time you think about complaining that your headphones were too expensive, remember the Diamond Tears Sally Sohn Edition headphones from Monster. The special edition headphones are available only at luxury retailer Harrods in London, and they carry a price tag of £20,000 per pair: Or more than $30,000 USD each!

The headphones were designed by Sally Sohn, a Korean artist, and are outfitted with Monster’s Pure Monster Sound technology. Here’s “Head Monster” Noel Lee on the collaboration between Monster and Sohn:

“The creation of the Diamond Tears Sally Sohn Edition was truly a labour of love for us, and being able to work with such a talented, ahead-of-the-curve designer as Sally to create such a special, museum-quality work of art was really the icing on the cake.”

The headphones are joined at Harrods by another pair of gold edition headphones, which will be made available in the limited quantity of just five pairs. You can see them all in the above gallery, and stop by Harrods the next time you’re in London (and flush with cash) if you want to check them out.
