The new Montblanc MB01 over-ear headphones are the Germany-based firm’s first foray into headphone manufacture, and they sure look stylish.

Yes, the traditional six-pointed star sits on the side of the all-leather headband and you can choose from three colour-combinations: black leather with chrome finishes, brown leather with gold finishes and light grey leather with polished metal finishes. Even the supplied cables (USB-C charger and 3.5mm headphone jack) come branded with the Montblanc six-pointed star.

“We set out to create headphones that would strike the ideal balance between advanced technology, sophisticated design and comfort because that’s what really matters to Montblanc travellers, whether they are aboard a long-haul flight, on a conference call at the airport or simply trying to recharge while on the road,” said Montblanc’s CEO Nicolas Baretzki in a statement.

The MB 01’s controls consist of a play/pause button on the silicone shell of the right ear cup, a button to toggle active noise-cancelling, one to activate Google Assistant, an on / off switch, and a volume rocker.

The Montblanc Headphones are available to buy for C$780.
