“Beats by Dre” has successfully established itself as the brand of choice when it comes to headphones. This brand is already expensive with its rapper endorsements but it pales in comparison to the headphones of a certain Japanese company. The Stax SR-009 can handle a frequency response between 5 to 42,000 Hertz and you can have this sonic flexibility for $5,250.
Even with its design, Stax maintains that these should not be called headphones but rather as ear speakers. Moreover, you need an amplifier worth $2,000 to power the unit further.
