We’ve seen the luxury maison, craft exquisite stationery, leather accessories, and pieces of watchmaking for decades now. Their first stride into tech-wear was made by the Summit smartwatch and now, they’ve entered the super-cluttered luxury audio space with the new Montblanc MB 01 headphones. Being truly luxe and comfy, it’s draped in Montblanc’s exceptional German suave and packed with top-of-the-line smart-audio tech.
The new Montblanc headphones are crafted for luxury, the design aesthetic is minimal, yet amplified for aural pleasure. Being foldable and compact, Montblanc’s new travel tech is perfect to carry with you on your cabin luggage and easy to tag onto your backpacks.
So, why pick these Montblanc headphones against a pair of Bose or Sennheisers? In terms of audio quality and tech, it’s certainly at par with these two audio titans, but with a suave look that only Montblanc can deliver. Being noise-cancelling, super lightweight, and compact, they’re great for tuning out and look elegant at every turn – they’re not just another tech tool, they’re a fashion accessory. When connected to the web, it offers Google Assistant support to ease your workings and that alone makes it more intimate. The signature Montblanc sound has been carefully master-crafted by acoustic expert Alex Rosson.
The Montblanc Smart Headphones come in three different combinations: black leather with chrome metal finishes, brown leather with gold coloured metal finishes, and light grey leather with polished metal finishes. Each pair of headphones comes in a fine fabric pouch with a USB-C charging cable, Audio Jack cable and an aeroplane adaptor.
The Montblanc Smart Headphones are available from March 2020 at Montblanc boutiques worldwide and online. In terms of price, it slates in at about US$595 (Rs 43,000 approx).
