Sennheiser unveiled the brand new Orpheus headphones this week, with the price clocking in at a staggering €50,000 Euros.

If you thought headphones costing the price of a car are a rarity though, guess again. This latest pair from Sennheiser aren't even the most expensive designs going, not by a long shot.

Check out some of the most pricey cans ever below.

1 Diamond encrusted Beats by Dre

How much £650,000

The most ostentatious headphones going. As worn by LMFAO at the Superbowl and Lil Wayne courtside at the NBA All-Star Game in 2012, these cans encrusted with 114 carats of Graff Diamonds are valued at a tidy $1 million dollars.

2 SuperBeats by Dre

How much £16,249
