Louis Vuitton is now making earphones—and it’s music to our ears.
Yesterday, the New York-based creators of high-end audio accessories at Master & Dynamic announced that they were teaming up with Louis Vuitton to help launch a range of wireless earbuds, which will be the French luxury brand’s introductory product in the world of aural accoutrements.
The in-ear devices will be called the Louis Vuitton Horizon earphones and are a riff on M&D’s popular product range, the MW07 True Wireless Earphones. To that end, they will be constructed from first-class materials such as PVD-coated stainless steel acoustic enclosures and 10 mm beryllium drivers, to help produce a rich and, well, dynamic, listening experience for a price of $1,000.
The collection comes in four styles. There’s a trio of colors—cherry red, black, and creamy white—which mimic the iconic Louis Vuitton monogram print found on the label’s signature leather goods, but here rendered in a matte and shiny constrast. Then there’s a black pair featuring the house’s other signature design motif of dual-tone stripes (in orange and blue).
Additionally, each pair comes housed in an elegant carrying case, which is meant to mimic the curvilinear silhouette and concave lines of Vuitton’s smartwatch, the Tambour Horizon (offered in white and hand-polished stainless steel to match the white colorway and black PVD-coated stainless steel for the other three options). The case doubles as a charger, providing 10 hours of battery life, giving the earphones 3.5 hours of listening time.
The earbuds are equipped with voice-control capabilities and enabled by Bluetooth, and they’re compatible with Vuitton’s own smartwatch. Needless to say, they’ll perfectly match your other Vuitton accessories.
If you’re an audiophile who also loves first-class design, French luxury, and all things Louis Vuitton, you may have found your next stylish purchase.
