At $1,099, they're targetted specifically at the high-end audiophile market, with a bandwidth from 10Hz to 39,800Hz and weighing in at 235 grams, they probably perform absolutely superbly, but most of us will never know.On the other hand, you could go for a cheaper wireless pair from AKG - the K910s. The black recharging base station and matching headphones set costs $249, offers a frequency response of 20Hz to 20KHz and will give you 15 hours of wireless playback. Both pairs are available now.
