New York City, March 12th2020 – Montblanc introduced its first ever Smart Over-Ear Headphones, the MB 01 and Summit 2+, the newest iteration of its smartwatch at a global launch event in New York City. With these two technology innovations, the Maison is expanding its tech travel assortment for connected, luxury business travellers.
For one night only, the World of McIntosh Townhouse, a historic building in New York’s SoHo neighbourhood, was transformed into an immersive Montblanc experience with guests relaxing in Business Class Lounge Seats equipped with headphones and touch screens that allowed them to put the headphone functions to the test in a travel environment. The volume of the tracks by DJ Pamela Tick inside the party proved the perfect test environment for the headphone’s noise cancellation technology.
The MB 01 Headphones are designed for stylish travellers who seek ergonomic design, enhanced comfort and the quality of Montblanc craftsmanship. Enhanced with all the functionalities needed to make them a must-have companion for travel, the over-ear headphones feature noise cancelling technology, impressive sound quality, Google Assistant, and work across a broad range of Bluetooth devices including iOS + Android.

The distinctive Montblanc design gives traditional watch lovers ways to express themselves whilst housing top-notch technology inside a 43.5mm pure steel case.
