Thanks for the article.
They should cost that much--it's only a MacBook Pro, and they are Sennheisers after all.
Maybe people will mostly use DACs off their phones, but the impedance is low enough to be powered by phones, and it might be nice to think one is hearing the best sound their phone (or whatever they use) can put out.
