Sound investment: why we love Montblanc’s smart headphones

The luxury maison’s wireless offering combines elegant Montblanc design, comfort and high-quality sound

In an already crowded audio industry, does the world need more luxury headphone options? Probably not. But that didn’t stop Montblanc – known for excellent craftmanship and design – from entering the space, a departure from its usual pens, watches, leather goods and travel accessories.

Built for luxury and to meet the demands of the jet-setting traveller, the Montblanc MB 01 Smart Headphones are a first for the brand. Designed with travel in mind, they are compact, foldable, noise-cancelling and have a long battery life. Made from aluminium and robust silicon, and developed with sound expert Alex Rosson, the headphones not only look great, but also sound great. Unfortunately, the timing of these travel-savvy headphones could not be more awkward, but there are many reasons they are a worthwhile investment beyond the airport – even with their hefty price tag.
