The Aluminum & Leather MB 01 Is Montblanc’s First-Ever Headphone

Montblanc has spent many years preening itself to become one of the top competitors in the fashion world, and thanks to an expansive catalog that’s been filled to the brim with leather, writing utensils, and watches, it was only a matter of time before the brand took the deep dive into smart accessories. Now, the company has unveiled its first-ever headphone — a wireless over-ear model known as the MB 01.

The Montblanc MB 01 headphone stays strikingly true to the company’s sleek design terminology, offering buyer’s one of the most refined silhouettes that we’ve seen in some time. Each pair boasts a suite of high-end leather, aluminum, and silicon, creating a near-seamless unison of high-end materials. But if the headphone’s aesthetic qualities don’t leave you enamored, you’ll be happy to hear that it’s performance will. Calling upon the expertise of Audeze’s Alex Rosson, each example of the MB 01 has been fine-tuned to deliver exceptional audio quality while working alongside a set of internal 40mm drivers, Bluetooth 5.0, and Google Assistant to gift buyers with the quintessential 20-hour listening experience. Head to Montblanc’s website to pick up a pair of your own for $595.
