What have you spent $3,000 on? Mortgage payment? A few round-trip tickets to points beyond? A epically speedy laptop? I bought a Porsche for 50% less. There is, however, a market for $3000 headphones. I reviewed the Audeze LCD 3 a few years ago, and they were mind blowing. Now, darling of the headphone forums HiFiMan has unveiled the HE1000, a $3,000 headphone that packs in quite a bit of tech, and easily their prettiest design ever.
