In a heartwarming display of friendship, Real Madrid forward Vinicius Jr. presented his teammate Karim Benzema with a special gift. On Instagram, Benzema shared a photo of his new pair of personalized headphones, a gesture of appreciation from Vinicius. The headphones were no ordinary pair; they appeared to be gold-plated and adorned with Benzema’s ‘KB9’ moniker.
Known for their close bond both on and off the pitch, Vinicius and Benzema have become inseparable companions, and Benzema often acts as a mentor to the younger player. In an interview, Vinicius referred to Benzema as his best friend, highlighting their strong connection.
The brand of the headphones Vinicius gifted to Benzema was a customized version of Apple’s flagship headphones, the AirPods Max. In the United States, these headphones are priced at $549, but Vinicius’ version, with the custom engravings and gold plating, likely cost significantly more.
It remains unclear where Vinicius purchased these dazzling headphones, as Apple does not offer such customization options as standard. However, in 2020, a Russian luxury goods brand called Caviar released a golden version of the AirPods Max, featuring pure gold and a rare crocodile leather headband, making it one of the most luxurious headphones in the world. These special Caviar AirPods Max were available for a staggering $108,000 at the time of release.
While the exact amount Vinicius spent on the personalized headphones for KB9 is unknown, the sentiment behind the gift was undoubtedly heartfelt. Benzema, appreciating the thoughtful gesture, thanked his “little brother” on social media, further emphasizing the close bond they share both on and off the field.
