4. Beyerdynamic T1 Tesla Audiophile Stereo Headphones
Is it crazy to spend over $1,000 on a pair of headphones? That depends. Is it crazy to want headphones that practically make your skull rattle? If you like ‘em loud, these headphones are awesome. The completely redesigned transducers in these headphones achieve values of over one Tesla (a unit of measurement for magnetic flux density). That means you get almost double as much volume as you’d get with a pair of traditional headphones. Beyond just sheer loudness, the balance in these headphones is also exceptional.
OK. Yes, it is a little crazy to drop this much money on a pair of headphones. But dang, they’re pretty sweet headphones. If you’ve got the cash, this is one headphone purchase you won’t regret making. Check out the video above to learn more.
There’s no reason that you can’t have both the freedom of wireless movement and a high-fidelity audio experience in the same pair of headphones. Beloved by music fans the world over, the headphones from Beats are expensive, but worth the price. There’s a reason that audiophiles and music fans both flock to the Beats brand.
Plus, the brand has the street cred that comes from being associated with Dr. Dre. These headphones retail for around $200, but they are widely considered to be worth it. They’re also fairly comfortable for most people, which is a feat considering how hard it is to design headphones that comfortably fit multiple ear types.
