Master & Dynamic MW60 wireless headphones review

 

In case you've never heard of Master & Dynamic, it's a new company that made a name for itself with its MH40 over-ear headphone , the wired model that the wireless MW60 reviewed here ($549, £419) is based on. It's currently not sold in Australia, but...

The Master and Dynamic MW60 wireless Bluetooth headphone is constructed out of premium materials and has excellent build quality along with strong sound for a Bluetooth headphone. It folds up and comes with a decent carrying case and a cable for wired...

The headphones are expensive, somewhat heavy and may not fit people with smaller heads. Lacks dual microphones for reducing ambient noise during calls.

If you can overlook the fact that it costs too much, the MW60 is beautifully designed wireless headphone that delivers very good performance.

Master & Dynamic MW60

 

The Master & Dynamic MW60 wireless headphones deliver a balanced, accurate Bluetooth audio experience in a beautifully crafted, comfortable design.

Clear, balanced mids- and highs-focused audio performance. Exceptionally comfortable, luxurious design. Detachable cable for passive, wired listening.

Too expensive. Not for those seeking big bass sound. Included cable lacks remote control.

Review: Master & Dynamic MW60 Wireless Headphones

 

Audiophiles despise Bluetooth headphones for the same reason gourmands despise the Olive Garden: it is so inferior that it doesn't even merit discussion. Like MP3s, Apple EarPods, and DACs that don't play 24-bit/192 kHz files, Bluetooth cans are...

A headphone maker finally cracks the Bluetooth code. Phenomenal sound; 'Wireless hi-fi' is no longer an oxymoron. Luxe materials and construction. Advanced antenna design means rock-solid signal stability

While the MW60 may set a new standard for Bluetooth range and sound quality, it also sets a new standard for Bluetooth MSRP: $549. More portable than they look, but still weighty

What closes the deal, though, is that the MW60 is two products in one: an unrivaled Bluetooth headphone and a legit hi-fi corded headphone you can plug into an amp to enjoy 180-gram vinyl. That’s the best double-dip since some genius slapped two...

Master & Dynamic have launched the MW60: a $549 closed-back Bluetooth headphone. Like the MW40, the great sound and stunning looks pay homage to the polished brand. Read on to find out more.

MW60 Headphones Review: Premium Wireless Over Ear Sound With Style

 

There's no denying that music plays a big part in the lives of most of us. Music means different things to different people. Some find comfort while others find inspiration. Everywhere you look, you're bound to see people plugged into their phones or...

Fantastic sound, great battery life, comfortable headphones, solid construction

Headband could be a bit rounder for comfort but this is being fixed for retail versions. Receiving end of call had difficulty hearing during call. Definitely on the pricey side

If you've got money to spare and love your music, you can't go wrong with the MW60 Wireless Over Ear Headphones from Master & Dynamic. They are well designed, solidly built, and sound fantastic.

Review: Master & Dynamic MW60 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones

 

Master & Dynamic's top-of-the-line Bluetooth headphones deliver on style, build, and sound quality, but are almost certainly overkill -- especially if you intend to take them outside.

As much as we loved the MW60s under most circumstances —we're giving them a high rating —you probably shouldn't buy them unless money is no object (which it probably is, naturally).

Review: Master & Dynamic’s MW60 makes wireless headphones look cool again

 

Master & Dynamic is known in the audiophile space as the “newbies” — but they've made a name for themselves. The headphones seen here are the company's latest offering, but also their first Bluetooth pair. The fanfare has been resolute: it's been...

Would I buy a pair? Surely. How about getting both colors? Well, that’s a tall order for me at the moment.

Master & Dynamic MW60

 

High end Bluetooth stereo headphones haven't exactly sounded very high end. Wireless introduces compression and the ensueing loss of highs and lows. Master & Dynamic's new MW60 headphones don't come cheap, but they sound better than any Bluetooth cans...

Premium quality materials, precise machined components, comfortable design, superior audio clarity and performance

The headband length isn't very long

The Master & Dynamic MW60 headphones are one of those headphones that are not only the tool for playing music but also the reason you want to listen to music for hours on end. The premium materials, comfortable form and the benchmark audio performance...
