Need Some New Earbuds? Try These. Only $14,500. Wait–What?

Many of us are willing to drop significant dosh on a good set of earbuds.  And by “significant,” I mean somewhere in the $100 to $150 range. Anything above that is, well, kinda stupid if you ask me.

So what are we to make of these special edition Happy Plugs which are made from 25 grams of solid gold?

Handcrafted by a goldsmith in Stockholm, you get 18 carat-gold earpieces to shove into your waxy ear canals.  And yes, you get all the regular features such as a built-in mic and a standard 3.5 mini plug.  Gold plated, of course. All for the low, low price of $14,500.

Yes, FOURTEEN THOUSAND, FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS.

If that’s too dear, regular Happy Plugs sell for $24.99.
