$150,000 speaker to watch over you

Eyeball shape and a crazy price tag

No, it's not another eyeball Webcam , though we'd certainly understand the confusion. Despite the similar orb shape, this is a speaker of much larger proportions with a price to match: $150,000.

Back on your chair yet? We have no idea what could possibly justify such an expense, but the "La Sphere" from Cabasse claims to be worth it, naturally. Luxist says the spherical design "eliminates standing waves" and creates "a more rounded sound." Right.

We have the perfect turntable for it too: the " Transrotor Artus ," which coincidentally also costs $150,000. That would make a total of $300,000 before you've even got any digital music sources. What a bargain.
