Louis Vuitton has branched out its products from luxury handbags to tech-infused luxury gear. And it has recently launched its LV Horizon Light Up Speaker priced at $2,890. Aside from its “Out-Of-This-World” aesthetics, is it worth the price?
It has been known to many that Louis Vuitton, a French fashion house, is one of the most expensive luxury brands there is. And just last year, it offered its customers a combination between technology and luxury styling, which then comes with a price. It is the Louis Vuitton true wireless earbuds that cost over $1,000. Similar to any other wireless earbuds but priced at that because of its prestige logo. And here are the details of the company’s latest venture into the tech world.
LV Horizon Light Up Speaker
What could be so special about this speaker? Well, as mentioned, it is coming from one of the well-known luxury brands Louis Vuitton. Aside from that, many reports claim that this speaker has quite an interesting and eccentric look into it. Engadget describes it as “a spaceship sculpted by aliens to resemble a sawn-off spinning top”.
The brand is inspired by their Toupie handbag, which also has the same disc-shape. And as expected, it has its famous brand spelled out around the center. The speaker also lights up to show the brand’s flower symbol. From here, you can also see a top ring light that shows rainbow colors with its 23 LEDs which matches the beat of what is being played in the speaker.
Is It Worth Its Price?
Aside from quite an eccentric look, it is best to go back to the initial purpose of this product. And that is a speaker. Is this actually worth its price?
As indicated in the brand’s online store, the product’s technical features include a 3-inch woofer, 0,75-inch tweeters (x2) to provide a 360-degree sound. It can be used for up to 15 hours of listening time. Once you’ve consumed the 15 hours, you have to charge it with the provided charger for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Moreover, it can sense its orientation whether it is placed on its dock or on its side. Whichever you prefer, the former gives a more omnidirectional sound while the latter gives a unidirectional sound.
It can also be used to answer calls with its built-in 3 microphones. You can access additional exclusive functions through the use of the Louis Vuitton Connect app which can be downloaded on your devices.
As explained by the brand, the Louis Vuitton Horizon speaker is not only your typical speaker. It also serves as an interesting and artistic centerpiece. The speaker has its unique blend of fashion and technology making it a great conversation starter.
It also comes with an accompanying dock to rest it in and to avoid any accidents. Just remember to not leave it on any sloping surfaces, or say goodbye to your almost $3000. You also get a universal adaptor, a removable black leather wrist strap and a travel pouch.
The Louis Vuitton Horizon Light Up speaker is now available in the brand’s online store.
