The German-Swiss manufacturer of luxury goods makes greater inroads into the world of wearable smart technology with the debut of the MB 01 smart headphones

Montblanc worked with Alex Rosson, one of the best audio craftsmen, to come up with a distinctive sound quality for its smart headphones, the MB 01. The founder of Rosson Audio Design, which produces some of the world's finest audiophile headphones, marries the MB 01's sophisticated design with advanced sound engineering.

Apart from the unique sound signature, MB 01 comes with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology for your own little noise-free cocoon; the battery can last up 20 hours when the ANC is active. It also features Google Assistant as well as the latest wireless technology that can be hooked up to both iOS and Android devices, and sound-enhancing software.

Aesthetically, the headphones are undeniably chic with luxe touches such as the genuine leather padding and the sleek metal finishes. They come in three looks: black leather with chrome metal, brown leather with gold-coloured metal, and light grey leather with polished metal.

"Our focus was not just on creating headphones that would deliver performance and reliability but also a design that was very distinctive with larger headphones to comfortably cover the ears," notes Zaim Kamal, Montblanc's creative director.
