If you are in search for an advanced pair of headphones to match the metal link watchband maintaining your Rolex on your arm, TECA Technologies has exactly the right thing. Motivated by Swiss watch manufactures, who take huge pride in their skill, the Luzli Roller Mk01 headphones sport an all metal headband that proves to be ideal for travel.
The Roller Mk01 headphones are not targeted for daily traveler, rather for music appreciators who are in search for a tad bit difference and value hand-made luxury. The headphones are made from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum (even though there is a magnesium alloy present in the craft) and a unique steel headband, with 22 steel springs that are claimed to assist mold the headband to a customer’s head. When the journey filled with music ends, the Mk01 headphones turn up like a pangolin for portability.
Rather than circumaural, these headphones fall in the “on-ear” category, which may restrict reactive isolation from the exterior world, even though the firm thinks these headphones are better cancellation of natural noise. The clogged-back headphones come with 2 pairs of foam ear pads that are the outcome of exact match testing.
“At the time of designing, we were experimenting more than 50 diverse acoustic foams to make sure to have the top sound,” the firm told the media. “For us, it was essential that the headphone becomes very portable and folds small since the main motive of designing was about making the superior sound in a small space.”
Enhanced by the German audio engineering, the Rollers features 30-mm dynamic drivers, with the guarantee of unbiased sound, 114 dB SPL, an impedance of 32 Ohm, a frequency response of 110 Hz, and a total harmonic distortion of less than 0.5%. The firm claims that the signature of the sound is very warm, which is perfect for jazz, vocals, and classical.
Around 10 years in the development, every Luzli Roller Mk01 is hand-made by Andrew James Lee to order in Switzerland and arrives in a wooden staging box. The headphones are only obtainable direct from the producer and have a price tag of $3,000.
