For fashionistas, designer tech is a hot trend. All kinds of fashion brands have made their mark on technology, and Louis Vuitton is no stranger to it. That’s why they’re here with the Horizon Light Up Speaker. Take a look at what makes this fancy item so interesting.
It’s always fun to see companies previously unassociated with the tech world putting their own spin on things. Sometimes it results in tastelessly gimmicky dust collectors. Other times it leads to stimulatingly unique gadgetry. Louis Vuitton is one such brand seeking to put its name in the game. The company, known for its handbags and fashion items, has occasionally enjoyed dabbling in the hybridization of tech and style. Their latest attempt at this branches into the audio category. Behold the LV Horizon Light Up Speaker, a product with prominent designer looks and a hefty designer price tag. Let’s take a look at this intriguing speaker and see what makes it special.
Horizon Speaker features meticulously high-end designer craftsmanship
As you might expect from a notoriously high-class company like Louis Vuitton, the Horizon Light Up Speaker has an expertly crafted aesthetic design. It’s a design that fits right at home in its product lineup. In fact, its look is inspired explicitly by LV’s Toupie handbag. This artistic wireless speaker infuses materials like stainless steel, embossed leather, and tempered glass. It incorporates elements of “The House’s” emblematic signatures as well. It certainly all lends itself to a quality designer look that’s unmistakably different.
Can sync to music and create a colorful light show
The Lous Vuitton Horizon Light Up Speaker does precisely what its name implies. It lights up! The device can sync to the beat of your music and create a gorgeous light show for you and your friends to enjoy. It even features a digital interpretation of the Monogram Flower, which is a nice touch with LV’s branding.
Has a 3-inch woofer, Bluetooth 5.1, and supports Apple AirPlay
While the exterior design is made with such quality, what about the inside? The Horizon Speaker contains a 3-inch woofer with both omnidirectional and unidirectional sound directivity options. It also uses Bluetooth 5.1 and supports Apple AirPlay. The speaker can get up to 15 hours of listening time while charging in only 1 hour and 30 minutes. A Qualcomm7 QCS 404 and 3 microphones (for phone calls) are built-in as well.
Portable and inspired by Louis Vuitton’s spirit of travel
Because Louis Vuitton seeks to inspire travel spirit, they want the Horizon Speaker to carry on with this tradition. Thus, the speaker is lightweight and easy to take on the fly with you. Horizon is only 18 cm in diameter and 14 cm in height. It weighs little more than 2 lbs. Perfect for throwing in a bag or suitcase on vacation.
Expensive for most, but otherwise a lavishly high-quality wireless speaker
If you’re a fan of Louis Vuitton or designer products, you can undoubtedly appreciate the Horizon Light Up Speaker. LV clearly put thought into creating it and didn’t hold back from delivering their exceptional handiwork. That said, the steep price tag will likely deter the average buyer who simply can’t afford to drop thousands on a wireless speaker. But, of course, if you have an exorbitant budget and a taste for lavish designer products, you’ll find a lot to love about this item.
The Louis Vuitton Horizon Light Up Speaker is currently available for $2,890. Check out the official website for more information.
