Louis Vuitton announced new Horizon Monogram Earphones earlier this month, priced at a whopping $1330 CAD, which are just re-branded earphones from New York-based Master & Dynamic (which normally cost $300 USD).
If you were considering these LV Horizon earphones, Victoria, B.C.-based tech YouTuber, Justin Tse, has released a hands-on video comparing them to Apple’s AirPods.
For starters, the insane price of nearly $1500 CAD after tax is not justifiable, unless you have a money tree in the backyard. For the price of one set of LV Horizon earphones, you could purchase six pairs of AirPods.
According to Tse, he tells iPhone in Canada “the sound quality is very good for wireless headphones,” when it comes to the LV Horizon earphones. But he says he wouldn’t want to shell out money and buy them for himself, as AirPods are lighter and significantly cheaper.
