Wireless headphones or Bluetooth headphones are a trend nowadays. However, the problem with wireless headphones is that most of them don’t sound quite good compared to a wired setup. Thanks to the advancement of technology, wireless headphones can now sound as good as its wired setup. After the success of their first over-ear headphone – the MH40, New York based company, Master & Dynamic released their first wireless headphone – the Master & Dynamic MW60. Today, we are going to look at and review their MW60 wireless headphone. Are you in the market looking for some of the best wireless headphones currently available? Stick around because this premium headphone could be the headphone you have been looking for all along.
Master & Dynamic MW60 Headphone Review
Master & Dynamic is still somewhat new when it comes to the headphone industry. In fact, this might be your first time to encounter the name of the company and their product(s). Before we proceed with the review, allow me to give you just a brief intro about the company.
“Master & Dynamic is a new luxury brand in the audio space (headphones, earphones, wireless speakers), purpose-built for the creative professional. Our passion is building beautifully designed, technically sophisticated sound tools for creative minds.
Founded by a serial entrepreneur (Jonathan Levine) and a diverse team of New York’s finest creative minds/agencies, Master & Dynamic combines experienced, successful leadership with a highly skilled, motivated and fast moving team. Our creative, digital and PR agencies are a tight extension of our internal creative hub. We have an entrepreneurial and yet highly collaborative design driven culture and are crafting a luxury brand experience.”
The company has already released two headphones and several earphones, and we previously reviewed the Master & Dynamic MH40, the company’s first over ear headphone. The MW60 is the company’s first wireless headphone and I personally think that it’s somehow an upgraded version of the MH40, or a wireless version of the MH40.
According to the company, the MW60 wireless headphone is designed to be the “ultimate modern mobile thinking caps: wireless tools to help focus, inspire, and transport your mind”. It’s also made out of finest materials and it’s tuned to provide a rich and warm sound.
The MW60 is built from the success of the MH40, at the same time improving its design and function, while keeping the premium aspect of the headphone. The MW60 is a combination of patent pending stainless steel componentry, all-aluminum antenna, heavy grain cowhide leather, memory foam and soft lambskin to produce a very sturdy and comfortable headphone that will last for decades.
I think the company is also using the same 45mm custom Neodymium high performance drivers to deliver that rich, smooth and warm sound. Currently, the MW60 is available in Gunmetal / Black leather and Silver Metal / Brown leather. But I think more color options will become available soon, just like with their MH40.
Below is a list of features and specs of the MW60. After that, let’s proceed to the next page and take a closer look on the wireless headphone.
