Hario Corp on Thursday unveiled a cone speaker set “Harion” which is made of heat-resistant glass. The world’s first heat-resistant glass speaker costs 16 million yen, according to the company.

The speaker set consists of sub woofer, two middle ranges and two acrylic tweeters. Hario executive Tatsuo Murakami said if there are more than 10 orders, it would be possible to produce the speaker set for consumers for about 10 million yen.

The company has so far made glass violins, cellos and Japanese koto instruments.
