The wacky-looking Opere Sonore speakers by Fabio Ognibeni cost $263,000. The insane price tag is matched only by the bizarre look of these audio instruments.

Eccentric billionaires may scoff at the cost but the design will leave most scratching their heads. The Opere Sonore speakers claim to be able to reproduce the effect of Stradivarius vibrations, a Stradivarius is a stringed-instrument built by the Stradivari family that is supposed to contain unparalleled acoustic qualities. The Opere Sonore speakers are built using wood from the trees found in Italy’s Fiemme Valley.
