    Luzli ROLLER MK01 Headphones by TECA Roll Up Like Bracelets

    The nicer and more substantial a pair of headphones is, the harder it can be to store or carry around with you – my own pair of Sennheisers often give me grief in rolling up its extra-long cord, even though they’re awesome in every other way. Design duo TECA have come up with a new […]
