I’m used to seeing ridiculously excessive mark-ups on manufacturers like Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga and the like, even on merchandise so simple as cash clips formed like a paperclip. It’s additionally not unusual for objects like headphones to fetch excessive worth tags with particular parts and superior high quality and construct. But by some means, I really feel like the brand new $995 Horizon earphones from Louis Vuitton aren’t well worth the parts they’re made from.
That being mentioned, the earphones are designed in partnership with Master & Dynamic, whose personal headphones vary from $200-600, so I might be incorrect on that. They’re suitable with any Bluetooth gadget, although they’re “optimized” for use with LV’s Tambour Horizon watch (beginning at $2,450).
And as a result of LV is concentrated on top quality and built-in vogue, the earphones include an identical carrying and charging case that’s très stylish.
The earphones can be out there in 4 colours — black, white, crimson monogram, and yellow and blue LV stripes. Stay tuned for an official launch day to return later in January.
