These could be the most expensive earbuds ever

How much would you spend for a set of earbuds? Most people will balk at anything more than the $219 Apple is charging for a set of AirPods. That’s a lot, given the chances of losing one or both of them.

Pfft. The moneyed classes are always looking for something more expensive. They’ll soon be stampeding to their local Louis Vuitton store to buy these earbuds, which cost a mere US$995.

LV has teamed up with an audio company called Master and Dynamic to create “a collection of unique wireless earphones, the Louis Vuitton Horizon Earphones, combining Louis Vuitton’s iconic designs with our elevated sound technology.”
