Thanks to Onkyo, throwing on a pair of fancy rose gold Beats headphones is no longer a status symbol. Compared to Onkyo's new Diamond Headphones which will be available — to a select few — for somewhere around $US100,000 ($137,188), those rose gold ear goggles you were so proud of might as well be just another boring pair of white iPhone earbuds.

Stop and think about how many hours you spend sitting in an office chair hunched over a computer. Don't you think your butt deserves to be cradled in something more luxurious than whatever was on sale at Officeworks? The Elysium chair isn't cheap, but it's brilliantly engineered to make you never want to get up again.
The United States NFL doesn't use those pebbled leather footballs just because it's tradition. They're also a lot easier to grip, helping both quarterbacks and receivers make spectacular plays. You probably won't end up in any slo-mo highlight reels using this Baller Yoga leather mat, but you also won't find yourself slipping all over the place when you get sweaty.
Living in a tiny urban apartment means you have to learn to live without certain amenities. Thanks to a German company called Klafs, a sauna doesn't have to be one of them. Its new Sauna S1 folds away like a telescoping camera lens, so it's no bigger than a bookshelf when not in use.
If people pouring tens of thousands of dollars into upgrading a Honda leaves you scratching your head, elaborate PC builds should baffle you even more. Some people take great pride in their sick computers, though, and what better way to show off than with a luxury yacht-shaped case?
Unless you work at a startup that's trying desperately to be hip, adorning your desk with mountains of Star Wars toys probably isn't encouraged. But when you pay £1400 ($2872) for a fancy pen from S.T. Dupont Paris that just happens to look like a spaceship, you can display it wherever you want.
Leather interiors and copious legroom used to be the hallmarks of a luxury sedan. But Ford is about to completely redefine what luxury means when it introduces a 30-way adjustable power seats that even lets drivers ensure that both of their bum cheeks are comfortable, even if they both require individual settings.
If you were lucky enough to have your own private plane, you'd think flying wherever and whenever you wanted without being crammed in coach would be enough. But apparently luxury demands more luxury, which is why Lufthansa Technik developed a fireplace for planes. Yep, it's OK to audibly sigh now.
Some parents spoil their kids rotten, and then there are those parents that are willing to spend north of $US45,000 on an electric roadster that isn't actually street-legal, but does come with a fancy gold-plated finish. That's the story behind this obscene toy available from Selfridges' Oxford Street store in London, England.
You can say what you will about the subdued stylings of the Apple Watch, but deep down we're probably all a little glad it perfectly married form and function — a balance that not all watch makers strive for. MB&F has just revealed its latest creation, the HM6 Space Pirate that more than lives up to its moniker, at least when it comes to styling.
Every once and a while I have to get dressed up for a wedding or something. And it's kind of fun, but it always reminds me that I'm just not fancy on the inside. No matter how decked out I am I'm still a jeans and a tshirt person deep down. But hopefully that's not true of luxury tech products that people spend a lot of money on.

Very few people have ever stepped foot on a boat made by yacht design studio Wally — builder of the fastest yachts on the planet — and even fewer have stepped foot inside their loud, hot workshop in Monte Carlo.
