JVC's New Headphones Have Wooden Housings, Cost $730S

Victor JVC just announced the new HP-DX700 headphones, and they look beautiful. Also, they look expensive, because they are really fucking expensive.

The cans have wooden housing for improved sound quality. They operage in a 5Hz to 30kHz frequency, feature 64Ω impedance, an overpressure value of 101dB/mW and support a maximum input of 1,500mW. The whole package weighs in at about 13.5 ounces, which means they'll cost you about $54 per ounce when they go on sale in Japan next month. Worth it? [Engadget]
