If you’re in the market for some wireless earbuds that don’t just play music but also give you a little fashion swagger, you’re in luck.

Premium audio brand Master & Dynamic is teaming up with haute couture fashion house Louis Vuitton to bring us the newest version of the Horizon Earphones and, well, it’s all about the LEWK, isn’t it? Earbuds, but make it fashion.

The most notable thing about these earbuds is, well, the price: a staggering $1,090. To put that in perspective, a 64 GB iPhone 11 Pro only costs $999 and upgrading to the 256 GB version will only cost you $59 more than a pair of these earbuds. 

It’s also an outlandish price by earbud standards. Master & Dynamic’s premiere non-Louis Vuitton wireless earbuds, the MW07 Plus, have a lot of the same features and cost only $299. 

The Horizon Earphones do have some pretty great tech features, including both an Active Noise-Cancelling and an Ambient Listening Mode, and an impressive Bluetooth 5.0 connection range of up to 100 feet.

The battery life isn’t bad, either. The earbuds can get up to 10 hours of listening on a single charge and up to 30 hours in total, thanks to two additional charges from the charging case. It also gets a glow-up here in the form of a “stainless steel charging case inspired by the shape of the Tambour Horizon watch.”

Plus, there’s that eye-catching aspect of Louis Vuitton style these earbuds rock. They come in five distinct colors: bright red, pristine white, jet black, pink, and neon yellow.

But, again, the Louis Vuitton branding and colors result in an $840 markup over a pair of AirPods Pro. Are these sweet-looking earbuds? Heck yeah, they are. Are they worth over $1,000? Well, that’s up to you and your bank account to decide.
