Gorgeous Luxury BT HeadphonesMay 22, 2017
When I first opened these headphones, my first thought was, "Wow; these look amazing." I was excited and could hardly wait to really try them out. Master & Dynamic is relatively new to the high-end audio world, but they certainly belong in the discussion about top headphones. Let's start with appearance. The MW60 is an over-the-ear style BT headphone. Construction is all metal and leather; there is no plastic to be found. The ear pads are made with lambskin and memory foam. They are incredibly comfortable. The headband is covered with premium grade cowhide. The frame is stainless steel and the ear cups include machined aluminum antennas built in, which gives you massive BT range. I cannot overstate how attractive the MW60 is. This is a seriously beautiful pair of headphones. Even the little details speak of luxury. The folding stainless steel hinges are smooth and high-quality. They allow you to fold up the MW60 for travel. The metal arms have ruler marks etched into them so you can know exactly what sizing fits your head best. The included cable, which allows for passive listening, is wrapped in braided cotton - yet another luxury touch that also aids in cutting down noise in the cable. All that is very nice, but the big question with headphones is how they sound. In that respect, the MW60 also shines. First, connecting via BT 4.1 was quick and easy, and the connection was strong and did not fade during use. M&D says the BT connection uses Aptx high quality audio. My son helped me test the MW60. I consider myself an audiophile, but my son has a more refined ear than I do for picking up on the most minute of subtleties in music. We both came away very impressed. The sound field is rich and pure, thanks to the huge 45mm Neodymium drivers. Bass is punchy without being over-the-top. Highs are clear without distortion. Different instruments are clearly separated in every style of music we tried - and we tried pretty much everything. The sound is clear, rich (but not over saturated), and incredibly detailed. The only mild complaint we had was that the sound field didn't seem quite as rich with certain types of big stadium style music, maybe something like Coldplay. By no means does that mean it sounded bad. Quite the contrary, it was still excellent, just not quite on par with how well the MW60 handled all other styles. Many expensive headphones are great for one or two styles of music. The MW60 truly is the most versatile BT headphone I've tried in terms of how accurately it reproduces a wide range of sound. The separation of sounds, particularly in the mid ranges, is spectacular. The headphones arrived almost fully charged. They last basically 12-16 hours on a charge, which is pretty strong. They charge via standard micro-USB charger. Given the construction is all metal and leather, they are a little heavier than some others. But they are also the most comfortable headphones I have worn. The weight was not an issue. Controls are built into the frame of the ear cups. They work immediately and without lag. Once you get used to placement, they are easy to locate. The omnidirectional microphone works well, but it lacks a second mic, which would help with canceling ambient noise. Which brings me to the only complaint I have: I wish the headphones included the option for active noise cancelling technology. Luxury does not come cheap. If you do not need a noise-canceling headphone, I highly recommend these to you. The MW60 offers a first-class experience in terms of presentation, appearance, comfort, quality, and sound.

Master & Dynamic MW60 Very Nice and CleanMay 23, 2017
Master & Dynamic bluetooth wireless headphones very clean, comfortable and well Built. I own 2 other bluetooth headphones Beats and sony both of them are the high end headphones. I will say these are the most expensive one's i own. The quality of these don't compare to the 2 others that i own. These are made with real metal and leather the feel is not like a fake plastic feeling you don't hear the plastic cracking. The sound on the MW60 is clean and clear there isn't an over powering sound from the bass or treble they are a well balanced sounding headphone. I am very impressed with them. There is no app to pair it with so you can't change the sound quality but there is no need for it they sound great. The ear cups are very soft and fit nice over the ears. I don't fell any pressure on my head from these you would think they would be heavy made out of metal but they are not at all. They stay on my head when walking around and moving my head around. Nice feature is the ear cups come off to clean or replace if something happens to them. The controls on the side are very easy to use and not confusing. Charging the is with a micro usb cable comes with audio jack to plug in. It does come with a case to keep your wires in that is leather. This does connect very easy to your device. The only bad thing about these is your paying so much for them and you get a case that is cloth and close with a zipper. It is nice that it comes with a case but for the price of these when i travel i would like a hard case to protect these better.

MW60 Master & Dynamic Informational Card Quick Start Guide Leather Storage Box 2.00m Standard Audio Cable USB Charging Cable 3.5 / 6.3mm Gold-Plated Adapter Protective Carrying Case for MW60 Protective Carrying Case for Cables User Manual Setup/Testing/Conclusion I first have to say that Master & Dynamic put a lot of work into the MW60; even the packaging is superb! Initial impression of the box on the outside is pretty standard… But as soon as you remove that “skin” and take out the black box; oh man! The material and craftsmanship that they put into the packaging deserves a 10 out of 10 from me. I am a box guy so I know when a box is nice or not. My spouse and I got to experience the MW60 straight out of the box and we both agree that these are the best headphones we have ever used hands down. The build quality of the MW60 is extremely nice. At first I thought these headphones were pretty heavy in my hand. But guess what? As soon as you put them on your head they are extremely comfortable and well balanced that you don’t even feel like it's heavy. The buttons are well placed and are very simple to use; pretty straightforward I’d say. The materials of cowhide, lambskin, and metals on this thing are a great combination; Master & Dynamic did an amazing job. When I first put the headphone over my ears I thought they were going to be narrow because I have big ears (so as my wife… don’t tell her I said that though!). After placing them on my ears, I can safely say that it's definitely not an issue; having big ears for the MW60 that is. I would also like to mention that I wear glasses and a lot of headphones get sort of uncomfortable. When wearing glasses with headphones, it typically feels like your head is being squeezed. I definitely did not experience this “squeezing” effect with the MW60. I enjoy that even when I remove one side and only have the MW60 partially on my head; it's still comfortable! Basically what I am trying to say is… It's comfortable. Now to the sound quality… WOW! The sound quality is crisp and rich; extremely RICH! The vocals are clear. There’s a clear distinction between vocals and music; no “bleeding” effect here. The distance on the MW60 are also excellent. I had the pleasure of testing them around the house while leaving my cell phone in one area of my home. I never lost quality nor did I experience any sound skipping like you would typically get from traditional Bluetooth devices. This must be the antennas that MW60 use. If you have the chance to see the headphone in person; you’ll notice the antennas on the left ear piece. You’ll be able to notice it as it looks relatively similar to the one on the back of an iPhone (that's of course if you actually have seen the back of an iPhone, typically on the bottom). The antenna that the MW60 has does an amazing job and I am able to close doors and still hear clear music (no skipping) even though my phone is through a good 3-4 dry walls and 2-3 closed doors. I also had the opportunity of testing the microphone quality and its pretty good. The only thing I heard “bad” about it is that I sounded kind of far. But the sound that I was projecting from my voice was clear and beautiful! With all this great sound, Master & Dynamic states that the MW60 will last you approximately 16 hours. To the accessories! Lets just first say that a good amount of time and cost has been put into the accessories. The cables included are nicely braided and have nice connectors. You essentially get 2 carrying cases; 1 for your MW60 and 1 for your cables. I like the fact that Master and Dynamic provided 2 carrying cases. The Sony’s that I have only come with 1 carrying case and I’m always afraid of scratching/damaging the headphone. The carrying cases are made of canvas. Although they are lightweight, they seem pretty durable. The only con/gripe that I have is that I wish the MW60 carrying case had a hard outer shell instead. If you’re an individual that is going to dish out the cost to buy something amazing like this; I would be extremely cautious of not damaging it. The ear cushions are extremely easy to change out or take off to clean. They are basically held by a magnet. These ear cushions are some high quality lambskin wrapped bad boys. They are comfortable and do everything they’re supposed to do without hurting you in any way, shape, or form. In conclusion… Would I recommend these headphones? YES! Absolutely. As I mentioned, I’ve tested several headphones and the MW60 by Master & Dynamic currently takes the cake. Everything from the build quality down to the sound quality is amazing. Basically; the MW60 is both beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. If you’re on the search currently for a new headphone, give the Master & Dynamic MW60 a shot; you won’t be disappointed.

EAR ECSTASY!May 23, 2017
Master and Dynamic Wireless Over-Ear Headphones Model # MW60 are an amazing engineering & design accomplishment! LIKES: 1- The audio CLARITY is the most prominent feature. Be sure your audio source is accurate. Just to prove this, I listened to songs ripped with a low sample rate. It sounded muddy and flat. Analog music & digital tunes encoded with Apple Lossless transport you to live concert realism. 2- APPEARANCE is stunning! Only the finest materials are used: Stainless Steel, premium cowhide on headband outer surface and ear cup accents, soft lambskin on headband insides and ear pads. They are beautiful and feel so soft on your head! 3- The headphones fold, using precision Stainless Steel hinges for easy storage. This offers both convenience and extreme durability. The outer box, shown in my 2 pictures, is handy to store them folded. 4- Extended Bluetooth range is achieved due to using an aluminum, exposed antenna. Bluetooth 4.1 with Aptx is used to achieve a premium quality audio connection. The result is sound quality with greater Signal to Noise Ratio & extended frequency response than was possible with earlier Bluetooth generations. 5- Slide switch with LED indicators make On/Off & Bluetooth Connect positive & repeatable. No typical push & hold switch, where if you hold it too long, it forgets your connection. The slide switch is positive & repeatable. Slides with precision feel. 6- Convertible - For precision listening, plug them in with the included cable & adaptor. For handsfree listening, simply switch on Bluetooth! Your choice of active or passive headphones, all in one. 7- The battery lasted over 30 minutes longer than the rated 16 hours! 8- Charging is a simple plug-in by any USB power supply - a super flexible, yet strong cable is included. 9- An insanely over-designed leather pouch is included to hold the Bluetooth cable, audio cable & adaptor. These cables are amazing, too! They are strong, yet amazingly flexible! See the leather pouch in my photo. 10- WOW Factor! Just one look at the machined Stainless Steel surfaces on the outside of each ear piece, the gorgeous lambskin & leather & you know these headphones mean business! DISLIKES: 1- The only possible Dislike I could consider was the weight of these headphones. They are heavy to pick up. Yet, on your head, they DO NOT feel heavy! The width & super soft lambskin of the headband & earcups spread the weight. This extreme weight distribution by design, engineering & luxurious material selection effectively negates this possible dislike. CONCLUSION: Master and Dynamic Wireless Over-Ear Headphones Model # MW60 deliver EAR ECSTASY!

Classy Look With Transcendent SoundMay 19, 2017
Everything about these screams quality and perfection. From the quality machined metal parts to the premium cowhide headband and lambskin ear pieces to the cloth covered cords and canvas cases, the look and feel of quality is in every component. There is also a round leather covered box to keep the cables in if you desire. Even the box they come in is classy and very durable. As for the sound, Everything from Classical Symphony to AC/DC with a stop in the country genre is what I used to put these thru the paces and they didn't fail me anywhere. Every note in every range of all the music was crisp and clear as well as excellent quality on all vocalization. No disruption or breakup of the bluetooth signal even when I walked into two adjacent rooms and the signal had to go through two walls, the sounds remained impeckable. I have claimed these at my house for me at our house and I'll be very selective of letting anyone who is not old enough to appreciate such a fine article near them. We also have a pair of Bose Noise Canceling Headphones and in the respect of noise cancellation, the Master and Dynamic set equal or exceed the Bose. These are a pricy selection, but it will be money well spent if you appreciate music and want to own a set of headphones you will be proud to own and show off.

Bluetooth Headphones With Great Build QualityJune 1, 2017
The Good Things About This Master & Dynamic MW60 These Master & Dynamic M60 Bluetooth headphones are made with really nice components, there are no cheap plastic parts that will break easily. The controls are all aluminum buttons that have a really nice quality feel, the play/pause button and the volume up and down buttons have a really satisfying click that is very easy to tell when the buttons have been pressed. The volume buttons can be pressed and held for a second to skip forward or back a song, because of being designed this way, it is not possible to press and hold the volume buttons to increase or decrease the volume faster, and it necessary to press the volume buttons repeatedly to achieve the desired volume. It is really nice to have removable ear pads, so that if the leather starts to crack or gets damaged, then it will be easy to buy replacement ear pads. Also the ear pads are magnetically held in place and can be quickly removed and washed or wiped clean. The Bluetooth antennae is built into the aluminum border of the left earphone, it has the same look as the antennae lines on an iPhone or a Google Pixel. When the headphones extend in length there are markers that can be counted so that each side can be adjusted to the same length. As with most expensive items these days this product has really nice packaging and this always adds a nice luxury feel to the overall product. This pair of Bluetooth headphones has a really good quality sound. Other Details About This Master & Dynamic MW60 The braided cables that are supplied are pretty good, but are not quite of the same premium quality as the headphones. Braided USB cables are not really my favorite, the braided fabric tends to snag on things with pointy edges. The strips of Velcro that is supplied and wraps around the audio and micro USB cables actually snags the braided fabric and it pulls up strands of the fabric, the braided style of cables are more of a hassle than anything. I prefer the vinyl or rubber on most USB cables. The main complaint about the micro USB cable is that the connection on the micro side is of mediocre quality and is a bit difficult to plug into the headphones. Even after a session of attempting to wear in the connector by plugging it in and out many times, this did not loosen up the connection much, the supplied braided micro USB cable still has an unpreferrable stiffness when it is plugged in. Then I tried to plug in a trusty micro USB cable that came with my Samsung smartphone and that micro USB cable plugs in smooth and much easier. I would suggest charging your Master and Dynamic M60 with a better quality micro USB cable that is already worn in, so that it does not stress the micro USB connection on the headphones. I often use my Bluetooth headphones to connect to my Windows desktop computer for audio during movie playback, and I have found that some Bluetooth devices pair better with my smartphones, than they do with the Bluetooth on my desktop PC. These Master & Dynamic M60 Bluetooth headphones have less than optimal pairing with my desktop pc, which has a fairly new version of Bluetooth built into the Wi-Fi card. I finally got these Bluetooth headphones connected, but it took many attempts at pairing before the headphones would even appear on the list as a device that could be connected. Once the Bluetooth connection was paired with my desktop pc, future connections were easy. The overall size of this pair of headphone seems kind of small, each side can extend so that these Bluetooth headphones will fit a bigger head, but the ear pads themselves seem a bit small, and I am a bit skeptical that these would comfortably fit a person with a big head. Especially if a person had bigger than normal ears, I doubt big ears would easily fit inside the ear pads. Holding these headphones in the hand, it kind of seems like surely the manufacturer might have two sizes of this same product, a medium size for normal size heads, which would be this product, and then a larger size for people with larger heads. The following is my experience based upon having declining health and less than optimal blood flow to the head. As with most over the ear headphones, in my opinion these headphones have a bit too much pressure on the head. I am a 5 foot 9 inch guy who is 150 lbs, and have an average head for my body size, and I cannot wear these headphones for extended periods because of the pressure from the headphones starts to reduce the blood flow in the head a bit. This situation might likely not be an issue for a healthier person with better blood flow. The exact weight of this item is 12.09 ounces. Overall Impression Of These Bluetooth Headphones This is definitely a well built paid of Bluetooth headphones with above average sound quality. I am rating this item at 3.5 out of 5 stars based upon the overall build quality combined with the value for the selling price. If the price were a little lower, then I would rate this product nearer to a 4.4 out of 5 stars.

Blown Away - worth the moneySeptember 2, 2017
I was hesitant to purchase these cans as they were well above my initial price range. However seeing them in person completely changed my mind. They are extremely beautiful and comfortable. You can really feel the build quality if you test them out in store. I was blown away at the sound. Its very warm and balanced. Could not ask for a better overall experience. I know they are expensive but worth every penny. Its a quality product that looks as good as it sounds. Im glad I spent the extra cash because I know that these will last a lifetime. Def recommend if you are looking for a legit pair of headphones.
