An $8,000 “Audiophile” Chair You’ll Never Afford

500x_sweetspotWorth it (assuming we weren’t all broke-off-our-asses-metalheads)? From Gizmodo:

The Ballerina Sweetspot is designed to be the ultimate music lover’s chair. It features a thin headrest to accommodate headphones and prevent the reflection of sound, memory foam to cushion the body, hollow armrests to neatly hold controls and an aluminum frame that supposedly reduces sonic vibration.

I highly doubt that a chair like this will enhance the listening experience enough to justify the $8000 price tag, but, again, people have a thing about chairs. And audiophiles, like CEOs, are probably willing to pay for the best of the best.

So, richie-richies and/or science nerds: could this thing possibly make any sort of difference?
