These Headphones Will Cost You $130K

You could pay off a luxury vehicle, buy a condo or purchase this MSB Select DAC headphone system.

The MSB Select DAC contains the best of the Analog DAC and the best of the DAC V to create the most lifelike sound ever thought possible. Each unit is hand-milled from solid billet of aluminum at the MSB Technology headquarters in Watsonville, California. They feature MSB Hybrid DAC modules, a Galaxy clock, plus new architecture, volume adjustments and a direct coupled output stage.



The technology comes with a ten year warranty and an upgrade guarantee. If they upgrade the device you only have to pay for the latest improvements, without buying a new one. You see the MSB Select DAC II only costs $90,000 before taxes. But for full functionality you need the Select headphone amp for $37,950, plus the Stax SR-009 electrostatic headphones at an MSRP of $3,825.

Vlad Savov, a tech writer for the Verge, gave the MSB Select DAC an outstanding review, despite the high price tag:

Yes, it’s all wildly expensive, and no, I can’t dissect the particular benefits of having a femtosecond clock, but I can tell you this: the resulting music produced by this hyper-engineered system is nothing short of magical. Every minute detail is rendered with microscopic precision, and you don’t have to be an audiophile to pinpoint the tiniest nuances and alterations in a note. It’s all just there for you, in a way that no other personal audio system has been able to recreate before.
