Master & Dynamic MW50+ review: weak magnetism

 

Not all parts were made equal

Solid audio performance when using on-ears ; Charming aesthetics ; Good battery life

Over-ear pads degrade audio quality ; Weak magnets on over-ear pads ; Can’t fold inward ; On-ears can become uncomfortable

Overall, the MW50+ headphones are tough to recommend because of their numerous flaws, including how different (read: worse) music sounds when using the over-ear pads instead of the on-ear variants. For the $399 asking price, you can find similar or...

Review: Master & Dynamic MW50 Wireless Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones

 

Master & Dynamic's MW50s look and sound great, but may be hard to justify given cheaper alternatives from other high-end headphone makers.

Master & Dynamic’s MW50 on-ear headphones are comfy but costly

 

The MW50 are on-ear headphones that perform like a pair of over-ears. They're nice to look at, comfortable and, at $449, pretty pricey. The headphones are lightweight, but are ultimately acoustically inferior to their over-ear counterparts. If you're...

Master & Dynamic MW50 review

 

High-end wireless headphones that go a long way towards justifying their price.

Sturdily made from lovely materials ; Comfortable in situ ; Punchy and detailed sound

Expensive, obviously ; Not the last word in timing or dynamics

Impossible to make an unequivocal case for, but we don't doubt they're perfect for some customers

Master & Dynamic MW50 Wireless review

 

In the lap of leather luxury

Build quality and materials ; Sounds great with all music ; Very comfortable

Soundstage could be wider ; Average battery life ; Noise isolation isn't great

The Master & Dynamic MW50 is audio luxury for the discerning listener. Impeccable build quality, materials and well balanced sound make for a wonderful experience ... if you can afford its high price. All that said, better value isn’t hard to find.
