You can nab a pair of Fostex TH900 headphones for around $1,300, which seems exorbitant even for a pair of cans boasting genuine Japanese Cherry Birch housings with a traditional "Urushi" lacquer, and a first-of-its-kind 50mm dynamic driver unit. There's also a Fostex "Biodyna" diaphragm for high-resolution sound, as well as reproduction selected 7N grade OFC (oxygen free copper) cords. Still not convinced? Check out the video below, which showcases the insane amount of detail that goes into the making of each pair. The clip is free of extraneous music or voiceovers, and shows the height of artisanal craftsmanship in simple, straightforward fashion. Check out the video below.
