A few months back, when Rolls-Royce introduced the all-new Ghost; the British luxury automaker claimed that its engineers spent countless hours to make the uber-luxury sedan’s cabin one of the quietest. The sound engineers also focused on perfecting the in-cabin acoustics, which should extract the model’s in-car audio system’s best performance. However, the manufacturer has now come up with something for those instances where you want to enjoy your music without bothering others in the car. Introducing the Rolls-Royce headphones, a limited edition headset constructed from aluminum and Saffiano brown leather to make it lightweight and match the ultra-premium interiors of a Rolls-Royce.
Rolls-Royce isn’t the first luxury brand to make premium rear seat headphones. Mercedes-Benz S-Class also comes with optional high-end headsets for its rear-seat passengers. However, the Rolls-Royce headset is very different in many ways. For starters, it is limited to just 200 units and carries a price-tag of $1210. Additionally, the Rolls-Royce headphones are not wireless and need to be connected with a cable. The luxury automaker says audiophiles and professionals prefer cabled headsets for the best quality and eliminate the potential loss of sound quality through interference. The limited-edition headphones will come with a variety of cables featuring a built-in microphone for hands-free use. As for the specifications, the headphones feature 40mm drivers, 2Hz – 30kHz frequency response, and 22 ohms impedance. Rolls-Royce says the headset is compatible with all modern models with rear-seat entertainment.
