Only 10 of these Assassin's Creed Origins headphones exist and you'll know why once you see the price

In case you want to give Ubisoft thousands of dollars without becoming a minority shareholder in the company, allow me to present the Assassin's Creed Origins Utopia headphones. Based on the Assassin's Creed Origins Listen Wireless headphones by audio company Focal, the Utopia edition features intricate 18-carat gold designs inspired by ancient Egyptian iconography, and it costs a cool €50,000 / £44,000 / $59,000.

For some perspective, you could either buy a Porsche Boxster with options:

Or 59,000 Taco Bell cheesy bean and rice burritos: 

Or one of these headsets: 

Only 10 of the Utopia headphones were made and they're all for sale by French jeweler Tournaire at its boutique in Paris. Oh, and they're all displayed on special bronze busts of Origins protagonist Bayek, as seen above, one of which you can purchase for an additional €12,000 / £11,000 / $14,000. I mean, you're not really going to set an 18-carat pair of headphones down on your coffee table, are you? At least prop them up with a few of those gold bullions and massive hunks of uncut, precious gems you have lying around.

The good news is that the Utopia phones do make the standard Origins Listen Wireless headphones seem more affordable by comparison. They're a relatively humble £249 / $333 and a relatively generous 2,222 of them are being manufactured. The Bluetooth headphones include a built-in microphone and offer up to 20 hours of listening time, and you can pick them up exclusively on the Ubisoft store.

Thankfully, you don't need expensive headphones to read through our Assassin's Creed Origins info article and catch up on all the details.
