PRYMA Headphones – when Luxury and Opulence are matched with quality

considered quality - stunning design

When a Hyundai Tucson can get a five-star ANCAP safety alongside a higher-priced¬†German luxury SUV – what makes the prospective buyer choose the German Luxury over the affordable mid-range vehicle? ¬†There’s a few reasons, and I think the same applies in many product markets – including Headphones.

Enter the PRYMA Luxury Headphones.  Hand-crafted in Italy these headphones have a more luxurious look and feel than the hip-hop inspired bling you might find at half the price.

At $899 they aren’t cheap. ¬†But that makes them unique. ¬†I make no apology for buying my first BMW 3 series for the same reason – it was a little more unique on the streets than anything else, so I paid more for the pleasure.

Now that 3 Series drove better and was better appointed too – but it got me from A to B in the same manner.

When you open your PRYMA headphone box you’ll be blown away by the approach. ¬†The two ear-phones are separated, able to them be threaded into the headband with the quality cable inserted into each.

They sit gently around your ears, not pressed onto them, right around them.

The sound is not deep or bass dominated, its clean and crisp.  Again talking to the type of music consumed by the buyer.

Available in five different designs (Coffee & Cream, Pure Black, Heavy Gold, Rose Gold & Dark Grey and Carbon Marsala) they offer a huge choice for opulence over the bold colours of many others.
