Why We Love It
As much as we love our smartphones (ahem, portable supercomputers), they are simply not meant for calls that last longer than a few minutes. The Monocle handheld speaker features a super comfortable leather earcup that let’s us keep navigating our phones during those long chats with mom. At the Grand St. office, we gave the Monocle a spin on a conference call which resulted in success. The sound is clear and it’s simple to operate. It’s also a breeze to tether multiple Monocles together, and the mic passes through really well.
Monocles have become the sartorial battle cry of hipsters and neo-dandies alike, but we’re excited there’s a more utilitarian way to enjoy the trend. The Monocle speaker is a quirky phone accessory that brings us back to a time when knickerbockers had nothing to do with Carmelo Anthony, while turning us into multi-tasking ninjas. We love how simple is it to switch between phone and speaker mode using the Monocle’s intuitively-designed control wheel. It’s a dapper way to celebrate the resurgence of Victorian trends, and a lot more functional than corrective vision in just one eye.
