The only thing good we can think of saying about these earphones is that they're not caked with Swarovski crystals. After all, if you're going to shell out $6,400 for a pair of buds, the least they can do is give you the real thing.

These "iDiamond luxury earphones from designer Thomas Heyerdahl are made of white gold and 204 diamonds, according to Luxurylaunches. Only a thousand of them will be produced, which may still be several hundred more than needed to meet the demand. But if you're one of those who are intent on generating negative karma with such egregious excess, you might as well go all out and get a $20,000 diamond Shuffle to go with it.
