    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!

    Beautiful Sound in a Beautiful Package

    When it comes to sound, Master & Dynamic have been strong contenders in the premium headphone space. The MW07 is a worthy addition to their line up, representing the best ear buds (wireless or otherwise) I've heard. Bottom Line: Master & Dynamic's MW07 delivers on the premium price's promise. The serious sonics, careful comfort, and delightful design combine to create high quality cans you will want to listen to all day. True wireless is a category invented by Apple with their Airpods. While I laughed at the need at first, I've come to appreciate the comfort in not having any wires to deal with when working out or even just moving around on the subway. I've had several pairs of bluetooth headsets in many different styles. The over the head sets can get a little sweaty. The necklace style with connected buds sound good, but have gotten caught on my neck in the summer time or on a crowded subway car and start to fall out. True wireless has been very comfortable, but not always a good sound or easy to control. The MW07 solved all of that. Sound: These buds sound better than any previous pair I've owned. They sound crisp across the spectrum and show incredible detail which rivals wired headsets. Despite having a single driver, they deliver both high and low notes simultaneously on tracks like Pink Floyd's Shine on you Crazy Diamond. They're also highly accurate, showcasing Adele's raspy vocals and Zac Brown Band's harmonies with equal facility. Using the right size ear tip is critical to delivering bass that's high impact without being punchy. In fact these have a very flat sound curve with no frequency range emphasized above another. This makes both Pacabell and Panic! At the Disco sound equally good. In 10 hours of listening, I did not have any dropouts within 30 feet of my phone. There's decent sound isolation, but these are not noise cancelling. They work well in even in a gym, but don't expect a complete sound bubble. Like most earbuds, these need some break in time before they'll sound their best. I've a playlist featuring a variety of music that's been breaking in headphones for the past several years. Most sets don't start sounding good until 30 hours of playing. These sounded good after 3 hours. Comfort: These fit entirely within your ear with some fins catching your ear ridge to hold it firmly in place. Master & Dynamic include 5 sets of silicone ear tips and 2 fin sizes to help you find the right size. Fans of Comfy foam may be a little disappointed, but I found the included tips to be comfortable for several hours of use. Wearing glasses, I appreciated the lack of an ear hook. Never did they come close to falling out. The small buttons were easy to access and activate. I liked the physical controls better than J-Labs touch sensitive sides. You can take out the left ear bud and still listen to music or make phone calls. However, you cannot switch. The right bud connects to your phone while the left only connects to the right. Style: The MW07's look as good as they sound. The shape mirrors your ear with a rounded back and flat front which makes them look like a musicians ear monitor. They're available in 4 colors with unique designs on the non-black choices. The charging case is polished stainless steel which is sure to grab attention. Battery Life: In my testing, these played for the 3+ hours as claimed on the spec page. Charging takes ~ 1.5 hours to climb back to full strength. The case requires a USB-C cable (included). You'll need to provide your own charger, though. An adapter allows you to use older USB chargers, but it will operate more slowly. Calls: In a quiet environment these will deliver a clear sound to your callers. They don't have any noise cancellation which can make for a difficult call outside or in a noisy office. The mic works fine for voice control (i.e. Google, Amazon, Siri). These should not be your first choice if your spend your day talking on the phone. Overall: If you can afford these, you will not be disappointed.

    Nice clear sound with long last battery

    When it comes to earbuds, I'm very picky. I want ones that fit comfortably in my ears, ones that I can wear for a while without my ears starting to hurt, long lasting battery and great sound. The Master & Dynamic MW07 EAR BUDS not only meet my requirements, they exceed them. Right out of the packaging they're ready to go. No pushing buttons to pair them with ALL my devices, just take them out of the case, put them in my ears, and pair away! I have paired them with my Samsung Galaxy S8, Dell laptop, Kindle tablets (2 of those) and iPad Air 2. Each one only took a few seconds to pair. No pushing of buttons to wait for the LED light to blink. They even connected to my laptop Cortana immediately as well as Alexa on my tablets. Bixby is a little more challenging as it didn't recognize some of the words I was saying. Now for sound quality - These are above all the best earbuds I own! The sound is clear with no background feedback, or static. I put them in, put my Pandora on my smartphone, and was able to walk all around the house doing my various chores without any breakup in sound or sound quality. The phone calls come in clear and concise and the party at the other end can hear me without any feedback or distortions. I did go outside while wearing them as a plane went overhead, I found it a little heard to hear the person on the other end. I listened to several types of music to test the quality of different acoustics. The sound was clear and sharp with the pop music, classic rock, classical, easy listening and blues/Jazz. I'll be using these a lot. I wore them for about 2 hours and the sound got better as they were "breaking in". The charging case is stainless steel and extremely rugged (I did accidentally drop it when I took the buds out). The USB-C is the same one I use for my cell phone, so charging it won't be a problem. It does come with USB-C and a USB-A adapter. I haven't had to charge the case yet as it's still fully charged since I got it a couple of days ago. The MW07 comes with a carrying pouch for the charging case with the earbuds. The pouch is OK, just made of velvet with a push open. I wish the pouch was a little padded to protect the case better. But there is plenty of room in it for the case so that it's easy to get in and out. Comfort - The MW07 fits very comfortably in my ears and have a wide range of ear tips and wings to fit just about any size ears. My advice, since there is no cable connecting them together, make sure you pick the ear tips that fit snugly but comfortably in your ears. If they'ren't perfectly placed, they can fall out. They aren't noise cancelling, but outside sounds are muffled enough so that you can hear what you're listening to clearly. Even pouring rain doesn't affect the sound quality, which is a definite plus for me. Battery life - the charging case should last for at least 3 charges, before it has to be recharged, though I haven't had to charge the case yet. The earbuds themselves lasted for over 3 hours, as is stated. They took less than 45min to charge fully in the case. Outside noise - these aren't noise cancelling, so you do hear some noise if you're out in an environment that has cars, trucks and planes in the area. If you want to talk on the phone, try to find a quieter place to do so. They are great for listening to music while walking. If you plan on going running or jogging with them, make sure you choose snug fitting ear tips and wings so the don't fall out. Overall, they're well worth the price. For me they give me the same quality of sound as other top brands that I own. I would recommend these for anyone wanting clear sound, comfort and no wires.
