Audio-Technica is celebrating its 50th Anniversary by releasing their new top of the line headphones. Priced at $1,400 (cough, cough), these high-class headphones feature Asada Hokkaido cherry wood covering with an Echizen traditional Japanese lacquer finish, 53mm drivers built with stronger magnetics than previous models, special lambskin earpad for luxurious comfort , and a gold 1/4″ plug that coordinates, of course, with the matching Headphone Amplifier. You better save your bucks for that too, ‘cause you’re gonna pay just shy of $3,000 for it. So, are the 50th Anniversary headphones (and matching amplifier) worth it? You be the judge.
