Strong audio performance with rich, accurate bass depth and a focus on details and clarity in the highs. ; Excellent mic intelligibility. ; Luxurious build. ; Some passive noise reduction thanks to thick earpads.

Lacks AAC Bluetooth codec support. ; No app.

Master & Dynamic’s MH40 Wireless look and feel like $300, but don’t sound like it

 

Looks can be deceiving

Premium build materials help them stand out ; Comfortable to wear ; Can connect to multiple devices simultaneously

Sound quality isn’t on par with other $300 headphones ; System interface noises are annoying ; Battery performance falls short of claims, despite an auto power-off feature

Master & Dynamic’s new wireless version of the MH40 maintain the original’s good looks. But in the pursuit of making a lighter, more comfortable set of headphones, the sound quality suffers compared to the competition and their feature set is very...

Master & Dynamic MH40 Black

 

This closed-back, over-the-ear headphone is beautifully crafted from forged aluminum, stainless steel and real lambskin leather, and its sound is competitive with that of comparably priced models from established brands like AKG, Beyerdynamic, Bowers &...

The Master and Dynamic MH40 headphones are constructed out of premium materials and have excellent build quality along with excellent sound. The headphones come with a decent carrying case and two cables (one has an inline mic/remote for smartphone...

While they're comfortable, the headphones are heavy -- maybe too heavy for some people.

Not everybody will love the fit of Master and Dynamic's over-the-ear MH40 headphones, but they are very well-built and sound excellent.

Master & Dynamic MH40

 

Master & Dynamic's MH40 headphones are luxuriously crafted, sound terrific, and are well worth the high price.

Excellent audio performance. Handsome design with luxurious materials. Plenty of accessories, including a desktop stand

Expensive. Bulky

While Beats opened up the headphone market for lovers of massive bass response, companies like Bowers & Wilkins have carved out a niche in the headphone realm for users looking for luxury. Relative newcomer Master & Dynamic use fine leathers and a...

Master & Dynamic MH40 Wireless review

 

The Master & Dynamic MH40 Wireless is attractive in design and sound, but also requires more features to justify its high price.

Gorgeous, well-built construction ; Clean and detailed sound ; Very comfortable ; Great noise isolation ; Strong wireless performance

Shorter battery life than the competition ; No active noise cancellation or companion app ; Subdued bass

The Master & Dynamic MH40 Wireless is a minor upgrade that could benefit from extended battery life and functionality.

Master & Dynamic MH40 Headphones Review

 

Master & Dynamic have really set the bar high with their new $399 MH40 headphones. Featuring premium materials and a sound to match, users are given a choice of 5 different color variations.

Master & Dynamic MH40 headphones review: Stellar sound…retro design

 

We're no strangers to Master & Dynamic around here, late last year we reviewed their amazing MW60 wireless headphones and came away impressed. Now we have the company's older pair of MH40 headphones in house for review and these are walking away with a...

Sound, sound, sound....the balanced sound is oh so nice. Build quality. High quality materials

Price point may turn some off, hard shell case would have been nice

If you can afford headphones in this price range and do not absolutely need Bluetooth, the MH40 headphones should be on your super short list.

Master & Dynamic MH40 headphones review: Stellar sound... retro design

 

Master & Dynamic scored big points with us when they released the MW60's now let's see if the MH40 headphones impress us just as much.

I’ve made no bones about the fact I love the design language Master & Dynamic have chosen to take with their headphones. The MH40 headphones are no exception here. These are exquisitely styled in a retro look with super premium materials all the way...

Master & Dynamic MH40 Wireless Over-Ear Headphone review – The Gadgeteer

 

Master & Dynamic's MH40 wireless headphones are more comfortable, made just as well and sound as good as the original—but heavier—wired MH40s. Here's the kicker, even though they are not cheap, the wireless MH40s are $100 less expensive than what the...

Comfortable;Lighter;Sound as good as the original MH40
