    These earbuds are stunning. Quality is top notch. The sound quality is rich and sharp. The bass is deep and smooth. 3 major cons: Battery Life is terrible Poor Bluetooth connection (Bluetooth cutting out) Volume! Where is the volume? When commuting on public transit, the music is almost nonexistent. This was a true let down, I wanted to love these however, the volume issue made me return.

    Some Of the Most Beautiful Earbuds

    Master and Dynamic made some pretty tech with these earbuds and while I have a couple of disadvantages for you they are very nice earbuds. For me there are two downsides: the hardware installed in the Bluetooth functions fail in connectivity when I'm in motion. I wear these in the car, walking and such so when the music or podcasts begin to skip like a CD I have a bit of a issue. Next is the distance I walk from my device and how it totally disconnects from my phone. As long as you plan on being right by the earbuds and your phone your music plays fine. Crisp instruments and some great bass in these earbuds. I live in a new construction area and bulldozers are always banging things so I wear these and they drown out the noise. I love listening to my meditation sounds of rain on theses, the rain drops sound like it's happening right outside, Elvis and his song "Let It Be Me" sounds amazing and the acoustics played so well. I also played some Drake and boy does the bass play reall well and it's concert quality listening. The carrying case and whole design is beautiful. I wish I would have gotten a color but the case and earbuds are nice. In the era of USB-C equipment I'm glad they used that as the charging port. These will be used at my desk and on trips. They are definitely a conversation piece of art and deliver great music when stationary. Enjoy!

    The Ying and Yang of Wireless Earbuds

    We humans thrive on input beyond our immediate surroundings. In the old days if you wanted to hear a symphony or play, you "went to the concert or theater". If you wanted to hear politicians speak or enjoy a sports game, you "went to see the event". With the advent of the electronic devices, we now can bring everything to us. Many years ago we had to sit around a 50 pound assembly of wood, tubes and batteries, but then things became "portable". At first that meant hefting a 10 pound boom box on our shoulders, but later we could fit everything into a pocket. The problem today remains that last 10 inches from our pocket to our ears, if we want private discrete listening we need to use ear-buds. Until that day comes when we can get devices that connect directly with our audio and visual cortexes (and it's coming), we still have to stick vibrating device into our ear canal and hope that the weight of the device doesn't pull it out of our ears at an inopportune moment. I apologize for this lengthy intro, but it's necessary to describe both the strengths and weaknesses of the Master & Dynamic - MW07 True Wireless In-Ear Headphones. Cell phone designers have more of less forced us to drop the wire between the device and the ear-buds by eliminating the 3.5 mm audio jack. The plus we gained was eliminating the main wire and the tendency for the ear-buds to be pulled out of our ears if the wire got caught. Also some people didn't have pockets for larger phones and wanted to leave the phone in their purse. The negative we gained was that now the ear-buds needed to carry their own batteries and transmitters. These were called "wireless" ear-buds, but they still had a remaining wire between the left and right ear-bud to share one set of batteries and a transmitter. The single remaining wire could be looked at as a plus because like two mountain climbers tied together with a safety rope, if one ear-bud fell out, it would not be lost because the wire to the ear-bud in the other ear would make it easily retrievable. The last wire could also be considered a negative though because it can be awkward to run behind the head through long hair and also simply because it's there. So, along comes TRUE Wireless Ear-Buds. The plus is that the last wire is gone, but the negative is that now we have to make the ear-buds large enough to accommodate two different type of transmitters and two sets of batteries making the ear-buds larger and heavier that their wired counterparts. YOU have to decide if the compromises outweigh the features gained. FEATURES: - No wires. - Can be undetectable if the ears are covered by hair or a hat. - 1 year limited warranty on the three non-replaceable batteries. 2 year limited warranty on the rest of the devices. - A separate metal Charging/Carrying Case that can protect and recharge the ear-buds away from any other electrical source. - LED lights on the Charging/Carrying Case that give the state of charge of both the ear-buds and the Charging-Carrying Case itself. - Good audio quality throughout the normal human audio frequencies. - Uses Near Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI) to communicate between the left and right ear-buds with high resolution and very low power consumption. This works much better than Bluetooth in this application since the density of the skull would block or attenuate Bluetooth signals. - Available in a variety of colors and textures - Includes a large selection of ear canal sized soft ear-tips and "wings" to modify the contours of the ears-buds themselves to match your unique ear size and shape for a secure fit. INCUDED ACCESSORY ATTACHMENTS: - USB-3 to USB type C-out charging cable. - An Adapter to add to the out-end of an older style USB-3 to Micro-USB-out cable to convert it to USB type C-out. - Self powered Charging/Carrying Case - Cloth Pouch to carry the Charging Case with the Ear-Buds inside the Charger PROS: - No Wires - Good Audio Quality - High Tech - Ear-buds can be recharged by the Charging Case 3 times while away from other USB power sources. CONS: - More easily lost because, "No Wires". - If the Charging/Carrying Case is lost, there is no way to charge the Ear-Buds. - The Right Ear-Bud will work alone, but it contains the Bluetooth transmitter, so if it's lost, the remaing Left Ear-bud will not work alone. - The Volume, Pause and Bluetooth Pairing buttons are hard to use without dislodging the Ear-Buds from the ears. If during volume adjustment you separate the left and right Ear-Buds by more than about 12 inches, the Near Field Magnetic Induction shuts off and the volume can't be adjusted. - The ear-buds themselves have a relatively short 3.5 hour run-time between battery charges. CONCLUSION: - "True Wireless" Ear-Buds are today's State-of-the-Art and from strictly an audio perspective, the Master & Dynamic - MW07 True Wireless In-Ear Headphones are great. However, as I mentioned above, everything comes with a trade-off and you have to decide for yourself if the true wirelessness makes it worth dealing with a few other issues. Even Master & Dynamic still offers fully wired Ear-Buds if you don't mind the tangle of wires to get the same audio experience. You have to decide. Please Note: Three Stars means "Average" not "Bad". These ear-buds are good at what they do.

    Really great sound

    I really like wireless earbuds. I love true wireless earbuds and not the ones with the cable in between that lies on your neck. That being said, these are outstanding. Master and Dynamic are going for the premium sound quality promise. They definitely deliver on that. These are the best sounding wireless earbuds that I have ever put on. Ever. Granted, the competition isn't all that great but they truly do deliver on the promise of premium sound. They have great range with good clear sound. Highs and lows were great and have that flat curve that I personally love. The details are just amazing. They are built very solidly. They have a premium feel to it and the build quality feels excellent. Everything from the stainless steel case to the acetate covers. The design of the acetate also make it look a little less plain. The earbuds just look great and premium. Apple Airpods look silly to me. These seem perfect. They are fairly comfortable. Even with multiple hours of use, I wasn't dying to rip them out of my ear. There are multiple tips in the ear that you can try out to find the one that works for your ear. Now the cons. There are so many earbuds out there. I know that they are trying to separate themselves from the crowd by sound alone. However, there are other aspects to wireless earbuds that matter. The battery life is 3.5 hours. I was getting around that much. This is much worse than the battery life you can get out of other earbuds. Granted, they did add quick charge so that a 15 minute charge will get you up to 50%. The Bluetooth is also Bluetooth 4.2 rather than Bluetooth 5.0. Bluetooth 4.2 is definitely solid but 5.0 is definitely superior in range, speed, and power consumption. I feel like upgrading the Bluetooth version would have been a worthy investment. All in all, I love the MW07. If you really value premium sound and don't mind the price, then these are the way to go.
