Did you manage to get hold of a gold iPhone 5s last weekend, or have you got one of Apple's champagne-colored handsets coming in the mail? Then you'll need some gilded earphones to go with your shiny new smartphone. Worry not, because the Stockholm, Sweden-based Happy Plugs has you covered ... so long as you've got a spare $14,500. In a new listing which reached our attention from TUAW, Happy Plugs is offering a "deluxe," gold-coated version of its $29.99 earphones. Claiming that "music has never been this exclusive," the website describes the earphones online:
Happy Plugs Deluxe Edition is a fresh take on jewelry. Upgrade your look with the most contemporary fashion detail of them all: Stylish quality headphones in 18 carat solid gold. A Swedish goldsmith in Old Town, Stockholm, makes the headphones by hand. 18-carat solid gold is molded into the shape of the Happy Plugs Earbuds and 25 grams of gold are used for each pair of earphones, which gives the headphones weight as a large jewelry.As you can see, the gilded earphones are indeed impressive. If your spare cash can't stretch to $14,500, however, Happy Plugs has a number of different colors on offer - including imitation gold - all of which can be ordered online for $29.99.
