Muon speakers are, quite frankly, the most opulent speakers ever made at an unreasonable price of $145,000.

Mind you, this price would get you a Ferrari with a pretty decent sound system, but, if you are extremely wealthy and are an audiophile who knows no bounds, then you will want to have a pair of these exclusive speakers.

Each speaker stands six feet tall and has been made from super heated aluminum sheets that are vacuum formed into the final shape, a technique so innovative that it is normally reserved for manufacturing experimental jet fighters. The aluminum frame is then buffed into a glossy mirror finish.

The speakers have the sensuous presence of a beautiful woman. The shape is derived by painstaking computer modeling to come up with the perfect form to amplify what you want to hear and cancel out what you don't want to hear.

To add to the provenance of this speaker, world famous British Designer, Ross Lovegrove, has led the design and manufacture of the speaker. And even if you are a rich audiophile willing to plunk down as much money as a small house for these speakers, you may not get the chance to own these because the production run will remain at an extremely exclusive 100 pairs. So, consider seeing this at a circus sideshow near you.
