One has to ask what makes a pair of headphones worth $2,000? Well, let’s see: A frame housed in high-quality Zebra Wood and earcups donned in premium lambskin leather. Undeniable treble response, sharper acoustics, improved bass detailing, and what might arguably be the best mid-range found on any top-of-the-line headset. And with Audeze’s new LOTUS diaphragm allowing for “great control and lower distortion,” music lovers can expect nothing short of studio-esque results. The accompanying wooden case is also pretty sweet.
