    These headphones are hands down the highest quality headphones I've ever come into contact with. I've always worn Bose and while they sound great in their own right and are quality products, they don't touch the design and machining of Master and Dynamics. It sounds silly, but I couldn't help but gawk at them when I pulled them out of the box. The materials are first class, including premium cowskin leather and braided cables. The 3.5mm audio cable has a long (almost too long) cable and included with the package is a nice quality travel bag (more on that in a second) and a nice circular box to hold the cable itself (although this box doesn't have much utility to me, it is a nice addition). The ear cushions are extremely nice and comfortable. The sound quality is crisp and punchy. Vocals are extremely clear. I'm absolutely no audio guru, I'll just say they sound great. The bass doesn't punch like Beats or other brands, but that's okay for me. That's probably a function of the fact that these are on ears versus over ears cups. I found these headphones to be comfortable during short sessions, but I did notice a pain in my ears after taking them off following a long flight. I think the headband is a little tight and I'm hoping it will "loosen" up after wearing it some more. But it wasn't bad enough that I wouldn't recommend these headphones. The biggest drawback is that it's 2017 and it seems that every headphone maker is going to Bluetooth which these do not. This isn't a big deal to me because I only want Bluetooth headphones when working out and when I'm listening with these headphones I generally have my phone in my pocket. I also have some concerns with traveling with them. The aforementioned carry bag offers no protection from crushes, only scratches. These headphones don't fold up, I woudl describe them as folding flat. So I would be careful when traveling with them. For my old pair of Bose QC35, they came with a hard shell case that allow me to stuff them in my bad without worry. Maybe I could throw these in my bag and they'd be okay (I'm generally careful with my things) but I'm too concerned about damaging them given their price. This is just something to keep in mind depending on how often you travel and how you travel. If you are looking for a high quality reference headphones to truly appreciate your music (it makes streaming music sound great, versus high quality audio files) then these are a great choice. They are impeccably made. Hands off to the audio engineers at Master and Dynamics.

    headphones are of course largely subjective to a certain degree. some prefer accurate reproduction, some prefer more ‘excitement’ in their sound, others like heavier low end and some will prefer mids or highs. at the end of the day, a review has to pick one area and give an all around score in my opinion. i personally tend to prefer a more exciting and engaging sound, balanced in all spectrums with neither too much of any given frequency pushing forward (maybe just a tad more V shaped than “flat”). with that in mind, here’s my take on these headphones. the good: -beautiful craftsmanship. the design and build quality are superb in my opinion. -compact design, actual speakers rotate toward and fold flat for case storage or just for sitting around your neck. -on ear design, ear pads are lush and comfortable. after stretching out the headband a bit, i found them quite comfortable for longer listening sessions. -2 included cables, one shorter for mobile phone use, one longer for home use. -small, hard case for cables included. the bad: -no included hard case for headphones themselves. while the included bag is nice, it’s not very protective. however, the headphones do seem to be built like a tank, so perhaps not a huge negative. -for those with larger head sizes, these will not fit. i would consider mine fairly average, and with the yoke fully extended, they just barely fit. a bit more extension room would be nice to fit larger head sizes. could be good or bad, depending on your taste: -sound quality - recessed treble, but otherwise very warm and full of body. for lovers of brands like Beats, these would absolutely be a step up in listening quality. the lack of treble leads to essentially zero fatigue on long listening sessions, but to me still feels like a bit of detail in the music could be lost as a result. depending on your taste in music and in headphones, this may not be a deal breaker for you. -bass is nice and tight, very punchy without feeling overwhelming or muddy. overall: quite nice headphones, but personally i would’ve preferred slightly dialed up treble to compete a bit more with the mids and bass.

    First I would like to point out that the Master & Dynamic MH30 are made with quality in mind. The leather and just the overall feel is top notch. For those who are in favor of wired headphones this is great and you will enjoy the sound. I'm not a pro in listening to the precision of sound but for my listening this is by far the best sound that I've heard from any of the headphones that I owned. You can even share music with someone by using the included wire. I love that 2 wires were included to help you get right into your listening. I also like the comfort and look of these premium headphones. I'm still impressed on the fact that these are leather. So as you can tell I'm happy with the headphones but I do have a few dislikes. This to me would be better if it was wireless for my use. I also think they should of include a iPhone 7 headphone attachment for the price. I was able to locate the one that came with my iPhone but I'm sure a lot of people might of misplace it but that's not a Master & Dynamic problem because Apple chose to go that route. Traveling with this should be easy since it folds and it comes with a case. This is compatible with my phone to answer and make call with clarity. I will continue to use this set to see if I will get use to it but I do not want to be attached by wires. This is close to perfect and I highly recommend giving these a try and feel the luxury craftsmanship.

    Great Audio Quality with Impeccable Design!

    Right off the bat, I have to say that I'm very impressed by the stunning design and build quality of these headphones. The lines are sharp, sleek, and the headphones boast an all aluminum build with a sexy blend of metallic gunmetal gray. When I held these I knew I was holding a quality product. The audio is incredibly balanced. I was pleasantly impressed! Tight & punchy bass that didn't overpower the mids or highs. The mids and high were crisp and clear. I would say that these headphones sound best when listening to EDM/Pop/hip hop genres. Rock sounded good, but dance music sounded incredible. So why didn't I give these headphones 5 stars? In good faith, I have heard slightly better in this price range so I can't give these a perfect 5/5. This could be purely subjective as different people are going to have different tastes in audio/sound reproduction. Some people like more bass and some people may like minimal bass and a clearer distinction of mids & highs. If you prefer a more flat and balanced sound (as I do) than these could be a 5/5 for you. One last note is that I would have preferred the headphone cups to be a bit larger. The earcups are rather small and don't completely seal your ear. I prefer earcups that seal your ear because, in my opinion at least, not only are they more comfortable but I prefer minimal sound leak. Again, that's just me and is purely a preference. In any case, if you're looking for some beautifully designed headphones which are sure to turn heads with some great sound quality check these out!

    Great Sound, Great Quality, Apple only controls

    These headphones look great, feel great, and have very pretty packaging. They look like a pair that will last for years and years as long as you care for them well (if you keep them in that box you'll have no problem). The sound quality is great and they block out most surrounding noise so you don't have much interference. They are easy to hook up and have multiple cord/adapter options. The only issue I have is the mic/remote line controls do not work on my Google phone. The website shows they work on Apple products. I verified they work with my iPad. Short answer is, play/pause and mic work fine, Volume does not. The headphones come in a sturdy box with plenty of room for everything if you wanted to reuse it for storage (I plan to). Included are the headphones (steel/alum & leather construction) one 6' regular cord, one 4.5' mic/remote cord, and one 8mm plug adapter all in a small leather box. The headphones have a plug jack on either ear for line to player or to play and share with a friend. They are plug and play, no setup is necessary. The sides have a metal rod to adjust headphone size on each ear. Ear pads are magnetic to pop out and clean or replace if needed. They are on the heavier side so walking around all day with them may not be advisable, but definitely gives them a durable feel. Great set of headphones, only issue is they don't control volume for my Android phone.

    Beautiful but SMALL

    First, these headphones are just gorgeous. Absolutely stunning. They most definitely look and even smell high-end, with a beautiful mix of leather and gun-metal black. They are obviously very well made headphones and they're packaged very well. The biggest issue I had with them is they don't fit my head. Adjusting them as far as they go they just weren't big enough. I could get them partially over my ears but could never get the fit quite right and they left a sizable portion of my lower ear uncovered. In order to adequately test them I had to hold them in place behind my head which wasn't ideal. They sounded terrific--crystal clear at both low and high volumes. They seemed like they would cancel out noises if you can fit them properly, but I couldn't really test them that way due to the fit. I'll assume most people don't have the huge noggin' I do and won't have the same fit issues so I will recommend these. If you have a larger head (and you know who you are) you'll want to look elsewhere.

    I have several pair of great headphones but this is my first pair of M&D's First off build quality is 2nd to none. Clamping force is a bit tight but they do form a very tight seal and help to block out outside noise. Now the most important part .. sound These sound very good a bit on the dark side, they mids are spot on the Highs are a bit muted (not bright at all) and the lows are accurate and not overbearing. Great set of cans Im happy with the purchase especially considering the sale price i got them for. The orginal price being the one reason I only gave them 4 stars. at the normal MSRP I wouldnt buy them but catch them on sale 150 or less and they are a great set of cansl in that price range.

    I love these headphones. They look amazing, sound great and come with some useful accessories. The only downside is that the fit is rather small. I am unable to use these over-ear headphones while wearing anything on my head (hat or beanie). They just don't reach my ears. Again, other than that aspect they are an amazing product.

    Purchased these when it was a deal of the day. I was looking for a headphone that I could use every day while commuting to work. The price was right and although it’s not a noise canceling headphone, it does the job in blocking the surrounding noise when commuting

    Good headphones that when purchased on sale, are a deal. Realively flat sounding w/a subtle bass punch. Snug but not tight, others have complained that they’re too small ... but for me there nicely snug and I have a good sized nogin.

    Nice “adult” headphones. Great color and very stylish. Well made and sound good to boot. Only wish that these were wireless. Otherwise would have been 5 stars.

    These headphones are the real deal. They are solid so if you are looking for "invisible" or lightweight phones you may not like but the sound is spectacular.
