Why We Love It
Native Union has a penchant for keeping this smartphone generation classy. Its POP Phone and POP Desk already make taking calls other-worldly, and now Native Union has created a speaker inspired by arguably the most dapper accessory ever. The recently-launched Monocle is a mono-handheld speaker, speakerphone, and earpiece, wrapped up into a very classy package. It’s a unique, fun-looking way to multitask with your phone, and provides no shortage of style. Hook Monocle onto your backpack, bike, or sling it around your neck while en route for easy access to all of its features.
The Monocle speaker wears many hats, from a one-sided earpiece to your own mini boom box on-the-go. Simply plug the reinforced nylon cable into your phone and it’s ready to jam (a 3.5 mm jack hooks up with all devices). The Monocle features a duplex enabled microphone that provides voice clarity during phone calls, and is compatible with voice recognition on your device. Monocle is great for conference calls – more than one person can listen in privately, or you can share with a group using loudspeaker mode. When the party gets started, a simple turn of the wheel on the back turns the Monocle into an instant speaker. A 40 mm driver provides stellar audio, and you can even daisy-chain up to 10 Monocles to truly amp up the experience.
We’re offering Monocle in two colors: black diamond and copper. These special edition hues are inspired by traditional vinyl records and feature a cool, grooved finish.
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.
