15 Most Overpriced Tech Products on The Market

If you like to be among the first in your circle to own certain tech items, you’re not alone. While having the newest or most exclusive gadget comes with bragging rights, they often have a huge price tag.

Buying high-priced tech is fine if you have a lot of disposable income. But for the average working person, while these tech devices are cool, they’re way out of a remotely accessible price range.

Canon has a well-deserved reputation for high-quality photography equipment, and the EOS-1D X Mark III camera is no exception. It’s a digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera that uses deep learning technology to track the subject’s face and head.

With its $6,499 price tag, it’s not a camera for casual shutterbugs. However, serious, professional photographers may find this device to be a worthy investment. I’ll stick to my iPhone camera, which meets my basic requirements perfectly.

2. Oura Ring

One of the coolest wearable technologies today is jewelry like the Oura ring. In the same way that wearable wrist devices collect individual health data, Oura does in the form of a gorgeous, tasteful ring.

Oura’s ring technology monitors and gathers data about sleep patterns, physical activity and recovery, heart health, stress levels, illness detection, and women’s health. This knowledge comes at a cost. The ring is available in two styles and several finishes. The rose gold finish is the most expensive at $549.

3. Mark Levinson No. 5105 High-Performance Turntable

Many of today’s music listeners use streaming platforms like Spotify, Pandora, and SoundCloud to hear their favorite artists. However, some listeners still love vinyl records and are fine with paying for them and quality turntables to play them on.

A self-described “statement piece for vinyl lovers,” Mark Levinson’s No. 5105 High-Performance Turntable certainly lives up to that description. It provides superior sound quality for vinyl records but costs $8,500, whereas other serviceable turntables cost far less.

4. Samsung TV The Wall All-in-One Television

If you have an extra $219,999 to spare, you could be the proud owner of Samsung’s 146-inch, 4K television. It has everything a viewer could want on a TV: vibrant colors, built-in components like speakers, a control box, a wall bracket, and artificial intelligence (AI) optimization.

The Wall All-in-One television is ideal for a home movie setting or the ultimate gaming screen. Is it excessive and indulgent? Absolutely. But it’s also a wonder to behold, even if the cost is astronomical.

5. Apple Mac Pro

Some technology is expensive, but you know you’ll get your money’s worth. Apple sells many of these products, from iPhones to iPads and MacBook laptops to Mac desktop computers. The Apple Mac Pro desktop computer looks great and performs even better. It should since the device starts at $6,999.

If that price isn’t enough to send you into sticker shock, here’s the rub: the Mac Pro doesn’t come with a display. Apple sells those separately. Mac Pro displays start at $4999, meaning this computer costs at least $12,000.


6. Dyson Zone Absolute+ Headphones

The Dyson name is synonymous with high-end household equipment, such as fans, hair dryers, and vacuum cleaners. The company enters the audio market via its Dyson Zone Absolute+ noise-canceling headphones.

In addition to the superior sound quality, touch, and voice controls, it has an extended battery life of up to 50 hours. It also has an attachable face visor that purifies the air by removing up to 99% of ultrafine particles. These headphones are cutting-edge, and they cost $799.

7. HP ZBook Fury 16 G10 Laptop

Hewlett-Packard makes laptops at all price points, many of which are affordable for the average consumer. The ZBook Fury 16 G10 Mobile Workstation PC Wolf Pro Security Edition laptop is not one of them. Its $9,063 price tag matches its lengthy name.

In all fairness, this isn’t your garden-variety laptop. It’s a professional-grade device for users working on graphics-heavy projects. It’s a suitable device for experts, but it’s way out of reach for most consumers.

8. Apple Vision Pro

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headgear are in vogue, and Apple’s Vision Pro combines the best elements of VR and AR. At first glance, the newly launched mixed-reality headgear looks like ski goggles, but they’re so much more.

The Vision Pro combines the real-world environment with digital content for an immersive experience. Potential buyers must ask themselves if that experience is worth $3,999, especially when more budget-friendly VR and AR headsets are available.

9. Ressence Type 3BBB Smartwatch

Smartwatches have grown in popularity over the last few years, and with good reason. They’re like miniature computers worn on your wrist, with the added capability of collecting vital data about the wearer’s health. They’re not a necessity, but they’re nice to have.

The Ressence Type 3BBB smartwatch goes far beyond that threshold. At $43,800, it’s a luxury most people couldn’t afford even if they wanted to. It’s a lovely, impressive piece, but many other smartwatches in the market don’t require a home equity loan to buy them.

10. Devialet Mania

Portable speakers provide listeners with clear, resonating sounds for indoor and outdoor use. The better models aren’t cheap, and the sound quality differentiates the good from the bad. Devialet introduces what it describes as its first portable high-fidelity smart speaker.

The Devialet Mania comes in five finishes at different prices, with none lower than $799 and the gold finish maxing out at $999. Devialet exclusively sells a designer Devialet Mania in collaboration with the fashion house Fendi. That model must be even more expensive because the site doesn’t list its price.

11. Caviar Custom iPhone 15 Pro Max

Caviar International targets a specific type of clientele: those who can afford to spend six figures on a customized luxury item as if they were pennies. One of the company’s most indulgent products is the custom iPhone 15 Pro Max.

This model is the Diamond Snowflake 256GB iPhone in 18-carat white gold encrusted with diamonds. It isn’t an understated statement piece; it screams money. How much does it cost? An astonishing $564,410. So that’s how the other half lives.

12. LG Signature Refrigerator

Refrigerators are a must-have appliance in any household, and they’re not cheap. The Signature refrigerator by LG proves that with its $7,999 price tag. At 31 cubic feet, it’s large and spacious and even has Wi-Fi support.

This refrigerator’s smart features will attract consumers interested in the Internet of Things (IoT). However, the exorbitant cost may discourage people, especially when cheaper models are available.

13. Logitech Harmony Universal Remote

Universal remotes are terrific tools for replacing lost or broken ones or consolidating different remotes into a single device. But the 650 Infrared all-in-one remote control isn’t your typical controller.

Logitech’s universal remote control has a built-in color screen, is programmable, and has one-click command buttons, making it easy to use. But for $259.99, it should at least come with a small flat-screen television.

14. Louis Vuitton Horizon Light-Up Earphones

The kind of headphones or earbuds you wear is something of a status symbol. For example, Beats headphones have a swagger that generic store-brand ones don’t. Louis Vuitton’s Horizon Light Up wireless earphones have all the prestige that comes with the brand. These earphones are smaller than most earbuds, but the distinctive LV flowers decorated on them speak volumes.

The equally stunning charging case is unlike any that typically comes with wireless earbuds. It also has an on-the-go case that can be attached to a belt loop or purse strap. Because of their $1,660 price tag, I wouldn’t dare wear them outside the house out of fear of losing one or both.

15. Ray-Ban Meta Wayfarer Sunglasses

In the mid-1980s, Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses achieved a new level of cool thanks to Tom Cruise’s iconic lip-synch scene in Risky Business (1983). The eyewear continues to be popular today but has received a 21st-century upgrade.

The Meta Wayfarers are smart eyeglasses with clear lenses, a 12-megapixel camera, open-ear speakers, voice controls, and a Meta AI virtual assistant to answer your questions. Classic Ray-Ban Wayfarers cost about $150, but the Meta Wayfarers retail for $299.

Never judge a book by its cover. You can say the same about movies.

Some of our favorite films are the ones we went into with no expectations. Despite this, they blew us away from start to finish.
