Flashy gadgetry and tech accessories are rapidly transforming the definition of luxury, but Swiss electronics brand Luzli is supplementing its longstanding dedication to craft by creating meticulous reinterpretations of classic opulent watches.
Informed by the meticulous work of horology, the new ROLLER MK01 and MK03 foldable headphones are tech-savvy nods to the interlocked links of storied timepieces’ wristbands. “There is something retro about the look,” says Luzli founder and designer Andrew James Lee. “It comes from not jumping on a style bandwagon but following a classic direction of form and function, using premium materials and ensuring quality throughout.”
Crafted by hand from pure silver, premium aluminum, and stainless steel, the MK01 and MK03 each have 11 head-wrapping links that lend them aesthetic timelessness and provide exceptional acoustic conductivity. When not in use, the headphones roll up into a bundle for easy storage and transport. And unlike brands that operate under a “designed here but made there” philosophy, Luzli creates its products order by order and in house, with longevity in mind. “We want these to surpass all normal expectations of durability and endurance,” Lee says of the headphones, which launched in Europe this past December.
Their high-end materials and finely crafted design come with a hefty price tag (the MK03 clocks in at $5,000), but like a fine timepiece, these headphones are an investment for life.
