the Apple Earpods may not be revolutionary in the sound department, but it sure sounds a whole lot better than its predecessor and on top of that, the unique ball-like shape is definitely a head turner, well, albeit on the small side of things. however, if that isn’t enough, there is the one-off Apple Solid Rose Gold Earpods for those who felt the need to show off their wealth. destined to go under the hammer at the (RED) Auction 2013 for an estimated price of $20,000-$25,000, this pair of luxe up earbuds was dreamed up by renowned industrial designers Jony Ive and Marc Newson and comes plated with 18k Rose Gold, which is essentially a blend of gold, copper, silver and zinc), presented in a custom display case.

basically that, the Rose Gold, would be the new black in the lavish world, a new sign of opulence which makes this pair of Apple Solid Rose Gold Earpods a perfect alternative to the non-in-ear items from Happy Plugs, well, that’s if you are affluent enough and has an insatiable need for this kind of bling. we have to admit it looks pretty rad. honest words. for those who can afford it, it is just 20 odd grand that stands between you and this ultimate in luxury buds. man, will you even plug 20k into your ears?
