The “Horizon Light Up” wireless earbuds are crafted to include a slightly curved design, a lightweight aluminum frame, and a layer of polished sapphire glass that sits over a Monogram “flower,” signifying elegance.
Under the hood, these earphones feature active noise-cancellation (ANC) for an undisturbed listening experience, a background noise-eliminating microphone for crystal-clear communication during calls, and Bluetooth Multipoint that allows users to stream audio from two different sources simultaneously.
In terms of battery life, these earbuds can provide up to 28 hours of uninterrupted use, which includes up to 12 hours on a single charge and an additional 16 hours offered by the charging case. Besides Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, they boast IPX5 water resistance and compatibility with the Louis Vuitton Connect app.
Further, these earbuds are accompanied by a lightweight, sleek stainless steel carry case, which also serves as a power bank. The case, which has a luxury brand name engraved, is designed to be easily attached to a belt loop or bag, “marrying function with style.”
Additionally, the charging case animates in a beautiful kaleidoscope of gradient colors when backlit by LEDs. It also performs an electric dance while indicating battery levels.
The earphones are available in five different colors: Red, Black, Golden, Silver, and a Blue-to-violet gradient, and cost $1,660.
“The Louis Vuitton Horizon Light Up earphones mark the beginning of a new era in state-of-the-art exclusive wireless in-ear audio. They bring color and creativity to the market as well as some of the most innovative, user-focused features around,” the brand wrote on its website.
They come in a beautiful charging case with a silhouette inspired by the Tambour Horizon Light Up watch, whose Monogram pattern animates in ravishing gradient colors. These exclusive earphones will delight fashion-forward individuals and audiophiles alike.”
