The AirPods already stands out on the wireless Bluetooth headphone market with its $459 price tag and unique design. If you want something even more unique, though, you might want to check out designer Ian Delucca’s diamond-encrusted AirPods.
Part of the “New Materialism” series of the designer, the diamond-encrusted AirPods aim to “fuse together the worlds of art and commerce seamlessly.” However, you need deep pockets to buy these AirPods as they are priced at $20,000 each. One can get in the same amount of money over 155 regular AirPods!
These AirPods also come bundled with a marble stand for charging for an even more premium feeling. With only 25 units available, these are limited running AirPods. So if you’ve got deep pockets and you’re interested in them, you might want to consider quickly pulling the trigger.
The AirPods have been cast in white gold and adorned with 1,0000 individual VVS natural, mined diamonds. Each set is inscribed with an edition number and creation date and comes with a marble stand for charging.
There’s no word about whether or not the additional diamond weight on the AirPods creates any kind of ergonomic problem. Nonetheless, given when one is ready to spend $20,000 on a pair of AirPods, I doubt they would be thinking about its ergonomics.
You can contact the designer Ian Delucca directly on Instagram if you are interested in buying these AirPods.
