The world-renowned French fashion brand, Louis Vuitton, has just waded into the audio market with an eye-popping expensive pair of true wireless earbuds, delivered to your door in a range of four colors; the classic white, sleek black, luxurious red or yellow and blue stripes. Eye-catching!

With a hefty price just shy of a thousand dollars, the fashion house’s foray into audio has everyone talking. With these IEM, Louis Vuitton has jumped on the style bandwagon began by Apple AirPods and are certainly for those who want to be noticed.

But below the flashy exterior, the Louis Vuitton Horizon is an earbud to be reckoned with.

Master & Dynamics audio tech throughout

These earbuds were made in partnership with the luxury audio company Master & Dynamics and feature the high-end materials found in Master & Dynamic’s MW07 True Wireless Earphones, including 10mm beryllium drivers. These drivers endow the Horizons with the warm sound signature that the MW07’s are known for. Lucky listeners will receive tones of remarkable clarity and depth thanks to this cutting-edge tech.

The listening time, too, is nothing to sniff at. The earbuds themselves last for 3.5 hours of listening with a further 10 hours from the charging case included as standard.

Louis Vuitton is clearly targeting an impressionable, young and wealthy set of consumers who demand to look good

With the Horizons, Louis Vuitton is clearly targeting an impressionable, young and wealthy set of consumers who demand to look good while they’re listening to tunes. And while buyers are unlikely to want to take these headphones for a sweaty workout at the gym – they’d cost a small fortune to repair – but for street walking they’re hard to beat.

Though there has yet to be a formal announcement of when the Louis Vuitton Horizons will be available for consumers worldwide, the price has already been announced: $995. Yep, that’s right. Just five dollars off a thousand.

To keep a sense of exclusivity, supply is likely to be very limited. In fact, you have to call them for availability according to their official store.

In the meantime, you can watch rapper Lil Yachty show off his pair of Louis Vuitton Horizon Earbuds.
