Or to the ear, to be more specific. Any takers? What if
I pay you $100 you pay me $250? Actually, Munitio, maker of the Teknines Nine Millimeter Earphones, is really hoping you'd be willing to pay it that chunk of change for the privilege of sporting the ridiculous copper alloy 'buds. And in case it wasn't already abundantly clear: yes, they are modeled after bullets, and yes, they really do cost $250. But, hey, at least they're gold-plated, and the cable is coated in Kevlar, right?
OK, that last part is pretty sweet, actually. With the propensity of headphone cords to snap and fray, I'm surprised the ultratough material isn't implemented more often. Still, I think I'll save my money for some Shure SE425 headphones instead.
