Master & Dynamic is celebrating five years in the luxury audio business with a new wireless upgrade of its signature MH40 over-ear headphones.
M&D's first headphone design was a deliberately old-school, wired MH40 model that debuted in 2014. Now they're releasing a wireless version of those classic cans featuring the same vintage aviation-inspired aesthetic and warm, hi-fidelity sound.
The new ones are lighter and more durable than the brand's original MH40, and, at $299, significantly cheaper than the $499 MW65 noise-canceling headphones that Maxim.com exclusively revealed as a limited edition Kevin Durant-designed colorway back in June.
These newbies feature Bluetooth 5.0 with a 100-foot connectivity range, and an aluminum and stainless steel body. They also boast the brand's familiar luxe lambskin leather ear pads and interior, but replace the original's cowhide exterior and ear cup inserts with a rugged coated canvas. They have up to 18 hours of battery life and can charge to 50 percent power in about 30 minutes.
“The MH40 was the first product we designed at Master & Dynamic and I remember that moment in the brand’s history very well. That iconic pair of headphones became the backbone of our product DNA and has influenced every product to come after it,” says Master & Dynamic founder and CEO Jonathan Levine.
As a nod to jet-setting customers who use M&D headphones while traveling on planes and trains, the Manhattan-based audio brand also features coordinates of New York's iconic Grand Central Station etched under the left ear pad of each headphone.
The new MH40 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones are available in three handsome colorways: gunmetal with black coated canvas, black metal with black coated canvas, and lambskin with silver metal and brown coated canvas for $299. Interested? You can cop them now exclusively at www.masterdynamic.com.
