Checkout This 2.3 Million Naira ($6,450) Pair of Leather Headphones
Venezuelan DJ and music producer Arca has teamed up with luxury retailer Ssense and leather company Fleet Ilya to design a $6,450 (NGN 2,328,450.00) pair of leather BDSM headphones. Seriouslly?
The headphones are integrated into a leather cage headpiece with studded details. It features suede-covered ear pads, a built-in remote, and adjustable collar. Unfortunately, theyâ€™re not wireless, so you will have to plug your BDSM headphones into a music source.
According to the product page, the headphones are being sold â€œexclusively as an art object, and is provided as is without any guarantees or warranty.â€ In other words, if youâ€™re spending this much on an art piece, donâ€™t expect to get any refunds if the leather starts to wear out. Worryingly, the disclaimer also notes: â€œUse of the product by a user is at the userâ€™s own risk and peril,â€ which makes me wonder if the makers actually want people to use this for listening to music at all.
Arca revealed the collaboration in an Instagram post, saying, â€œhey i designed some headphones itâ€™s casual theyâ€™re really cheap pick up a pair or donâ€™t or whatever either way iâ€™m locking you into the sound,â€ ending with an emoji of red lips.
If youâ€™re really into these headphones, theyâ€™re available now. Be quick, though, as thereâ€™s only one pair left. And if theyâ€™re a little bit expensive for your taste, Arca sells just the leather headpiece for $5,275 (no headphones), doing away with the pretense youâ€™ll use these for music at all.
