The Stellia closed-back headphones are certainly stunning to look at and I’m sure they’re equally amazing to listen through.

There’s nothing like sitting back and enjoying your favorite tunes on your US$3000 headphones. Wait, what? That’s right. Focal, a French high-end audio company, has announced their Stellia closed-back headphones which will cost you US$3000. To be fair, Focal also offers more affordable headphones that sound pretty darn good but they do deal mostly in higher priced goods.

The Stellia closed-back headphones are certainly stunning to look at and I’m sure they’re equally amazing to listen through. Focal says that Stellia integrates a new generation of exclusive speaker drivers, capable of working at low sound levels while offering an extremely extensive frequency response (5Hz- 40kHz). Combined with frameless 100% copper voice coil and an ‘M’-shaped pure Beryllium dome. Focal says these headphones will deliver precise sound in both bass and treble.
