Even the most extravagant of earphones can be considered extremely cheap compared to Final Audio Designs’ new Piano Forte X-VIII Series ear buds. The company claims the sound from these ear buds are like none other you may have experienced, with a concert hall as an allegedly appropriate comparison.

The Piano Forte X-VIII Series ear bud is encased in metal, which can block unwanted vibrations that distort sound--something that silicon-made ear buds aren’t capable of doing. The cheapest model fetches for $940, which features brass housing and gold plating. The next price up is $1,180 with stainless steel, and their chrome copper housing with ion or gold plating piece prices in at over 2.5 k. These Piano Forte X-VIII Series ear buds look like they would fit seamlessly into one’s ear and deliver top notch sound as promised.
