Called the ‘Louis Vuitton Horizon Earphones’, the luxury French fashion house has just unveiled its first-ever wireless earbuds in partnership with the New-York-based audio company Master & Dynamic for an approximate price of $1300 CAD ($995 USD).
The Virgil Abloh-led Louis Vuitton’s newest lifestyle accessory wirelessly connects to compatible devices via Bluetooth and also works seamlessly with the Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon smartwatch.
Offered in black, white and red Monogram or yellow and blue LV stripes, the earphones feature 3.5 hours of listening time on a single charge and an intuitive touch control element. Furthermore, the accompanying Horizon charging case, which also features sapphire glass, provides a total of 10 hours of battery life.
From the official press release:
“The Louis Vuitton Horizon earphones are inspired by the House’s visual universe. The Monogram design, contrasting matte and glossy surfaces, dynamic bright colors and refined metallic Louis Vuitton lettering all represent iconic Louis Vuitton signatures. Keeping consistent with the premium materials found in Master & Dynamic’s MW07 True Wireless Earphones, PVD-coated stainless steel acoustic enclosures house 10mm beryllium drivers to produce Master and Dynamic’s warm signature sound.”
There is no word yet on when these Louis Vuitton earbuds will release, although their otherwise identical siblings from Master & Dynamic without the coveted LV logo are already available for almost $950 CAD less.
Do you plan on grabbing these once they go on sale or would you rather stick to your $219 CAD AirPods?
