While the idea of glass speakers seems like an accident waiting to happen, these futuristic lookers from Hario are far from fragile.

The heat-resistant glass cones which comprise the Harion home audio set are the result of a collaboration with Japanese glassmaker Hario and 23 other contractors. 

Having labored for three years and eight months to produce this vision, Hario probably feels their shatterproof glass speakers are well worth their hefty price tag.
