Louis Vuitton’s speaker is aptly Inter-Galactic
July 21, 2021

A mere $3,000

Louis Vuitton is seemingly ready to move far from its comfort zone, with a few initial steps into the world of hi-end audio. After last year’s $1,000 Horizon wireless earbuds, LV have now announced the $3,000 Horizon Light Up speaker.

While a true style statement with really Out-Of This World styling, the Horizon isn’t aimed at audiophiles, in fact its more along the lines of a Vertu offering than a flagship iPhone, meaning the majors needn’t worry. It’s more for those looking to make a statement, with UFO-esque looks as an artistic centrepiece for your room, a unique blend of fashion and technology that aims to challenge what a portable speaker should look like.

Of course it has the LV logo plastered all over it, as well as 35 LEDs on its glass, stainless steel and leather build. Apparently the look is inspired by LV’s Toupie handbag, which has similarly brash styling.

As for what lies beneath, LV have revealed that the Horizon Light Up speaker has a 3-inch subwoofer, two 0.75-inch tweeters, three mics for voice calls, and Bluetooth 5.1 and Apple AirPlay 2 for streaming from a phone. It also comes with its own display dock that charges it up via USB-C.

Louis Vuitton’s Horizon Light Up Speaker is available to order now at a mere $3,000, with shipping starting on 31st July.
