You could do plenty with ¤110,000. You could buy a su­per­car, hire a pri­vate jet to fly from Lon­don to New York and back… Or you could buy a set of head­phones. Not just any old ones, though—the Fo­cal Utopia head­phones by Tour­naire. A col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween high-end speaker brand Fo­cal and jew­eller Tour­naire, the Utopia head­phones are dec­o­rated with 18-karat gold and 6.5 carats of white di­a­monds. Be­neath the bling is some se­ri­ous tech, in­clud­ing an open-backed full-range speaker driver with pure beryl­lium M-shaped domes. These head­phones might seem like an out­ra­geous ex­trav­a­gance, but they’ve been cre­ated to sup­port a good cause. A por­tion of the profits will be do­nated to the As­so­ci­a­tion P’tit Louis, a char­ity founded in the name of an eight-year-old boy, Louis Biscini, who suf­fers from a rare de­gen­er­a­tive dis­ease, spinal mus­cu­lar at­ro­phy type 1.
