Master & Dynamic MW60 Premium High Definition Bluetooth Wireless Over-Ear Headphone – Brown/, Amazing top-of-the-range headphones with great sound quality and supreme comfort

When it comes to headphones for a long time, it’s been my bose cans which have held the top spot for me. With master & dynamic the new boys on the block, could they live up to or even beat the products of my long time favourites?. I put them on and pumped up the volume to find out. First impressions when unboxing these headphones is excellent. The packaging and accessories all ooze quality, supplied with a neat leather style box for all the high quality cabling and a bag to hold the headphones in when they are folded down. All of these, plus the headphones themselves are good quality and solid without being heavy. Comfort wise, they adjust easily to fit neatly, securely and pleasantly giving me confidence in what the sound quality will be like. Connectivity wise you’ve got a few options – either small or large standard headphone jacks are supplied or for the those of us with a hatred for cables there’s a wireless option too. Charge up with the micro usb cable, connect to the phone and you’re away – with good range as well, something that let’s a number of similar headphones down. Though it’s actually the sound quality that puts these headphones at the top of the shop.

Weel made but a m c and sound did not suit me.

These earphones are outstanding. They ooze quality as soon as you open the box. They are beautifully packaged in a matte finished box. You keep finding more things as you delve in.There’s a leather box to keep the connectors in and the earphones themselves have a pouch to keep them in. The ear pads are made of calve’s leather and memory foam. The former doesn’t make me very happy, as an animal lover, really. But, they are beautifully soft and very comfortable to wear. Pretty emotional experience when listening to a favourite, moving piece of music or song. The sound quality is just out of this world and you will hear things you have never heard before, believe mesupreme quality, supreme sound.

Comments from buyers

“Wonderfully dynamic headphones that provide convenience and great sound.
, Taking the top spot
, Excellent, beautifully made, high quality headphones

Sure they are a load of money but you get quality from the minute you open the box. Beautifully presented the headphones are a perfect fit, easy to pair and the sound is out of this world. Before these i had a pair of beats studio – great headphones but not a patch on these. The quality is simply brilliant. Made from metal and leather – amazing.

Going from my old pair of cheap headphones to this gorgeous pair was like swapping a peugeot for a jaguar. They are supremely luxurious and are so comfortable to wear, even when i’m wearing glasses. The leather on the earpieces is very soft and adds to the comfort, and the earpieces attach with magnets and can be removed for polishing the leather if you wish. The headphones are made from steel and leather, and the build quality is top of the range. While i’ve mostly been using them with a wire to listen to music from my pc while i work, they are bluetooth-enabled. They are noise-isolating as opposed to noise-cancelling: you will still hear some noise around you, but it’s minimised by the earpiece seal around your ear. I hadn’t heard of master & dynamic headphones before, but i’m definitely a convert. Listening to music through these is wonderful and it’s a completely different experience even when listening to old favourites — you can hear all the details of the music and the sound quality is superb: rich, detailed and clear. Yes, these are an investment but i’d say they are definitely worth it if you’re a music lover.

These headphones are absolutely excellent. The sound quality is exceptionally good to my ear, though i’m by no means an expert, and they get used almost every day for gaming and music as they really make both activities so much more immersive. The quality of the components and the design is far, far better than some of the other headphones that we’ve had in the past, and these are in a completely different league, though of course there is a premium price tag attached as you’d expect with high-end products. In this case, i believe that you truly do get what you pay for though. The weight of the headphones took a bit of getting used to the first few times i wore them, but as they are so comfy and well-padded, i soon got used to it and almost forgot i was wearing them. The leather is very soft and supple and smells really nice too of coursewe have been using these with the playstation 4 and dab audio, mostly classical, and for both sources they are extremely clear with no hint of crackle or loss of quality. The depth of sound is very rich and every tiny sound is so much clearer than i’d have ever bought possible, it’s really taken gaming to another level now every nuance can be heard like you’re in a studio.

I’ve considered myself a bit of an audiophile for years, so i jumped at the chance to review these master & dynamic mw60 bluetooth headphones. I was also very interested to see what these over-ear headphones were like in comparison to my usual choice of in-ear monitors. The headphones arrive in a surprisingly small but good quality box which includes the headphones, a small leather box with a headphone cable, charging cable and full-size audio adapter, a canvas case for the headphones and instruction booklet. Thankfully, it should all be easy enough to figure out for you not to need the manual – i certainly didn’t have any issues. Pairing these were simple, on each side you have controls, one has an on/off and pairing switch, the other has three buttons, call answer/pause button and two volume buttons, you just use the on-off switch and hold it on the pairing position for 3 seconds and it pairs up to your device with ease. Once you’ve done that, you’re all set to go. When you first pick these up, you’ll notice they are fairly hefty, the all-metal construction is quite obviously solid and feels good. The gunmetal colour also looks great too. This is backed up by the supple leather on the earcups (which attach via fairly strong magnets for easy replacement) and headband. The mechanics of the headphones must be admired as well, to adjust the height of the headband they’ve used a piston which is strong and stays in place, and even includes markings on the inside.

I own these headphones and have to say they are absolutely amazing. Since owning them i have fallen in love with music all over againaesthetically they are strikingly beautiful and exude quality and luxury. I get lots of compliments from people who always say they look gorgeous and expensive. The build quality is seriously good too. There are two different types of calf skin used plus stainless steel and aluminium with no visible plastic at all. Due to the metal involved in the construction they are on the heavy side but to me that just adds to their imposing presence once you get used to it. The memory foam ear pieces are very comfortable and do a very good job at cutting out any external noise. I prefer passive noise cancelling as it removes the need to further process the source signal. A very nice touch is that the ear pieces are easily detachable thanks to built in magnets. They just pull off with a reasonable amount of force (but never by accident).

  1. 4.0 out of 5 stars Great-looking, solid sounding headphones, let down by small annoyances says:

    This review is from : Master & Dynamic MW60 Premium High Definition Bluetooth Wireless Over-Ear Headphone – Brown/Silver

    Been using these on a daily basis for a few months. The sound is good – i prefer this over the momentum 2. 0 ones, as it is more natural with an emphasis on the mids. Sennheiser and mw both have signature sounds, and are in my opinion equally good – just different. Bass is good and packs plenty of punch for my taste, but if you listen to bass-heavy music i’d give these a miss. The mw60 does not have any noise-cancelling (apart from passive because of the over-ear design) but i specifically wanted that as i find anc makes me nauseous and detracts from the sound quality too much. Bluetooth connection is mostly good, though i can’t say the distance radius is more impressive than other models i’ve tried; leaving my phone in the living room and crossing the hall to the bathroom is fine, but if i go upstairs it starts to stutter. For a wireless model, the sound quality is very good when not in wired mode; i find wired mode flattens the sound a bit, though the soundstage is still pretty impressive for a closed-can design. Build quality is exceptional: the leather is soft and supple, and there is a reassuring weight to the headphones that exudes quality and ‘is made to last’. I like the design and the look, it is definitely ‘different’ and eye-catching.

    • 3.0 out of 5 stars Good looks at expense of sound! says:
      I’ve tested these headphones for about a month mostly wired to a ifi usb dac, it took me a while to figure out i didn’t like the sound signature, what did it for me was a mqa version of hotel california listened on the mw60 vs. 0, i was smiling and tapping my foot with the momentum while the mw60 sounded tight and confused. They look awesome, i think a lot of care went into the materials but there are a lot of equally-priced or even cheaper headphones that sound better.

    This review is from : Master & Dynamic MW60 Premium High Definition Bluetooth Wireless Over-Ear Headphone – Brown/Silver

    For me, the most important feature of premium headphones is the sound. And in these cans the sound is not worth the money. Highs are muted, mids are ok and bass is simply non-existent. They are very stylish, though.

    The rest thing that strikes you about these headphones is the build quality. They feel absolutely superb and look far far better than they do in the product photos. Sound wise they are very natural. I like my music bassy and in some ways these are a bit lacking in that respect for me but in terms of fidelity they are very true and realistic. My testing for these was not my usual range of music (from the orb through rage against the machine and pop will eat itself to aphrodite). Instead i stuck with more chilled, ambient sounds and spoken word and these did very well with that. A lot of my testing was done on trains and the noise isolation was almost complete. I was certainly not distracted by the full carriages our noise of the train and announcements. Some have complained about an uncomfortable fit but i actually found these to be the most confirmed on-dan headphones i’ve ever used. While the unit is quite heavy the padding on the headband and the ear cups is just the right level of firm and soft that you almost forget they are on.

    My postman saw fit to put these very expensive mw60 headphones through an open window that’s about seven feet above the floor. They still work fine, which is a testament to how well they’re made. I must admit i’d never of master & dynamic before, but that’s probably only because these are audiophile headphones. The phones come in premium packaging with lots of accessories: protective cover, leather cable box, usb cable, audio cable and audio cable adapter. Physically, they’re gorgeous, and built to last. Earcups that secure with magnets. They feel of supreme quality, and are very comfortable to wear.
