$2,500 headphones can blind you

Crystal-studded pair from--who else?--Swarovski

Cool Hunter

Clearly, Swarovski crystals have cornered a market in consumer technology. We're not sure what market that is, exactly, but they've cornered it.

There's no disputing this fact with the introduction of these crystal-encrusted headphones, which Cool Hunter says were designed by DJ Donna D'Cruz in a variety of colors (shudder) for a mere $2,500. The phones are the latest to join Swarovski's unfortunately growing collection of mice , phones , laptops and, yes, refrigerators . Who needs a disco ball?
