Introducing the Roller MK01

The Roller MK01 hand-crafted, on-ear headphones combine refined design with a unique patented rolling mechanism which makes them small enough to fit in your pocket or purse.

Each set is unique, individually hand-made in Switzerland and tailored to your head size so that the precisely crafted aluminium and steel headband fits the head snugly and comfortably.

These headphones have the quality and attention to detail you would expect from Swiss craftsmanship, and were inspired by high quality Swiss watches which are both an expression of portable luxury and durable enough to last for generations.


Precision Design
Machined from pure aluminium and stainless steel with exceptional sound quality from such a compact size ROLLER MK01 has a cohesive and balanced sound presentation.

Unique Folding
The Patented rolling design makes this the smallest package size of its type in the world. Unlike other folding headphones which use plastic the ROLLER MK01 is built to last and uses the same high quality materials that you might expect from a premium watch.

Superior Comfort
With 22 separate stainless steel springs the headband actually conforms to the users head making it more comfortable and adaptable to different shapes and sizes. This makes the ROLLER MK01 ideal for travel use.

Swiss Craftsmanship
With Swiss construction and British flare for creativity the ROLLER MK01 is a true example of European Design at its best. The highest attention to detail makes each product a work of Art.

Roller headphones are precision engineered and hand-crafted by the Swiss-British design duo, Dina Guth and Andy James Lee. Inspired by Swiss watches and the ideal of ‘Portable Perfection’, the headphones have been nearly a decade in the making, and are uncompromising in their approach to quality and detail.

With excellent sound and bespoke materials, Roller is the ‘headdress’ – the armour of the modern day. Roller is the perfect companion for people permanently on the go with music in their ears. Roller is about products that are better, products that last longer and products that can be maintained and updated. The Roller MK 01 is the brain child of the Swiss and British design duo LUZLI, which was established in 1998 at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London.

“This project was a real challenge, using new folding mechanisms and approaches is always a learning process, and because no one has tried this before, we had to overcome many difficulties,” says Andy James Lee from LUZLI. From the initial idea to the current manufacture, it has taken nearly a decade to perfect the ergonomic shapes combined with the best sound, and has involved a host of different experts in materials, sound engineering, tool making and ergonomics. The perseverance has paid off, and Roller offers its user a unique experience, excellent acoustics and a stunning, innovative construction.

“The Roller MK01 headphones are an independent interpretation of modern headphones. They convey class and robustness, elegance and comfort, all in a perfect form.”
