If you thought Apple's meme-worthy AirPods were a viral status symbol, then wait until you get a look at Louis Vuitton's ultra-luxe monogram wireless Horizon earphones that are set to retail later this year.

For the storied French house's first-ever foray into the audio market, it's collaborating with Master & Dynamic, a New York-based audio brand company to offer super stylish auditory accoutrements.

The earbuds come in four colourway options — attention-grabbing red monogram, simple-yet-sleek black, classic white, and yellow and blue LV stripes — and offer up to three-and-a-half hours of listening time on a single charge. The retail price is $995 (approximately Dhs 3,600).

To house your new equipment, LV is offering a concave-shaped stainless steel charging case that is available in white for the matching earbuds and black for the other three colour combinations. The charging case also provides the earphones with a total of ten hours of battery life, perfect for your on-the-go lifestyle and next jet-setting adventure.

These statement-making Bluetooth headphones are also compatible with both Apple and Android devices — including Siri and Google Assistant softwares, respectively. They're also compatible with all Bluetooth devices.

While this may be Louis Vuitton's first pair of headphones, the brand previously launched tech with the Tambour Horizon smartwatch in 2017.

There's no release date for Louis Vuitton's sleek and monogrammed Horizon earbuds just yet.
