If you like your headphones a little less Lady Gaga and a little more... let's say "classy", the Quincy Jones signature headphones from AKG have just landed in Aussie stores. And they start from "affordable".
There are three pairs of headphones in the range, starting at $149 for the Q350 and ranging up to $799 for the Q701. There's no confirmation that using them will make you a musical icon, however.
Here's the complete range rundown:
