I’m used to seeing ridiculously high mark-ups on brands like Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga and the like, even on products as simple as money clips shaped like a paperclip. It’s also not uncommon for items like headphones to fetch high price tags with special components and superior quality and build. But somehow, I feel like the new $995 Horizon earphones from Louis Vuitton aren’t worth the components they’re made of.
That being said, the earphones are designed in partnership with Master & Dynamic, whose own headphones range from $200-600, so I could be wrong on that. They’re compatible with any Bluetooth device, though they’re “optimized” to be used with LV’s Tambour Horizon watch (starting at $2,450).
And because LV is focused on high quality and integrated fashion, the earphones come with a matching carrying and charging case that is très chic.
The earphones will be available in four colors — black, white, red monogram, and yellow and blue LV stripes. Stay tuned for an official release day to come later in January.
