    I have had the Bose Soundsport Free and Bang & Olufsen E8, and I have to say these are the best sounding of the 3. I got them on sale for $225 so at that price, I highly recommend them. I really wanted the new Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless earbuds but they were sold out and these were on sale. Be aware however that you need to get a good seal in your ear to get the best sound. I had to switch to the larger ear tips as I was missing the bass and details without the seal. The Bose were the second best sounding and I would just avoid the E8. The sound here is clear, detailed and loud. The materials are all premium and they are very comfortable. Highly recommend if you get them on sale!

    I had the Bang and Olufsen E8 prior which I was pleased with - but these hands down have a much better sound stage and feel very premium in the hand. The wings that hold them in your ear actually work very well and are very comfortable. I use the comply foam tips with great results. The lack of an app is meaningless with these since they sound just so great so need to tune them. Also battery life is plenty for my usage since I don't use them for more than a few hours at a time. Expensive but worth it.

    Well crafted premium wireless earbuds

    The MW07 earbuds are truly wireless and fit very comfortably in the ears. The sound quality is solid and crisp. It is so clear and there are no static or background noise. The build quality is premium and high tech. Fully charged ones will last over three hours. But the metal case it comes with will be able to provide three full charge for these buds. The design of these earbuds do look a little weird, but they are indeed comfortable. It comes with different sizes of ear tips as well as fit-wings that you can pick to fit your ears. The case is charged with a USB C cable. But it also comes with a USB A adapter to be used with other USB ports. It is certified for splash proof IPX 4 waterproof level. The two earbuds are connected via NFC, which means only one earbud is connected to the audio device via the Bluetooth. The only downside of this earbud is the battery life and there is no quick charge. Overall, these feel like a premium product with one of the best design quality.

    This is my first time to buy Master and Dynamics brand. When it comes to earbuds, first thing I may pay attention to is the fit and quality of sound and here I can tell those earbuds impressed me. Quality in those earbuds is significant and has taste of luxury. Case is sturdy and made of stainless steel thats gives a classy look, in terms of sound quality is premium and crispy clear and multi functions button is well designed in which you can forward and backward tracks,in addition to activate voice assistant (Siri, Google). Very well made and sound is incredible. The charging case is storage also has 3 led lights indicate battery level for each bud and the case itself is very useful.

    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.

    THE BEST

    The Master & Dynamic - MW07 True Wireless In-Ear Headphones are the best wireless in-ear headphones I've used. The fit, set-up, and charging case are all excellent. The sound is impressive, with just the right balance of HiFi and Bass that remains solid at high volume. The control buttons are also the most convenient I've used. What could make it better? For me: 1) use the more common micro USB charge connection instead of the USB-C that it employs, and 2) add noise cancelation and ambient settings. As their first venture in this category, these excel others and will only improve as more features are added. In my opinion, the Master & Dynamic - MW07 True Wireless In-Ear Headphones are truly a premium, top-of-class product.

    I've used jaybirds, Bose, Sony, Denon, AirPods, and sennheisers wireless headphones in the last and not one of them ever left me satisfied and I always ended up with my bulky over the ear headphones to achieve the sound and fit I wanted. These Masters though....... they're amazing! The sound is unbelievable with bass that can rival my big over the ear headphones. The fit is amazing as well, never have I once even thought that they might come loose, let alone fall out! This crazy tight seal is also why it can have such great bass which is something I've noticed none of my other headphones have been able to do. The case is elegant and much smaller than I thought it would be from the pics. All my sound from my theater, cars, and personal audio must be top notch which is why I've gone through so many of these hyped up brands in the past. Bottom line, if you're looking for sound you're going to LOVE and you get frustrated from ear buds slowly coming loose as you move around or excercise, these are the headphones for you and they 100% worth the price.

    Excellent wireless earbuds

    I purchased these a few days ago and I was initially disappointed. The first pair I bought were malfunctioning. I did everything I could to figure out what was wrong. The left unit would only stay connected 5 seconds and would drop out, pausing the music. They sounded great for the 5 seconds at a time and were also extremely comfortable. I ended up exchanging them for Seinheisser HD1 free ($100 cheaper) but I couldn't fall in love with them. The sound was nice but the design was lacking. @@@@@@@@ Not comfortable in my ears and the controls were too close to the ear buds). I swapped inserts but I feel like I needed something in between the mediums and larges. So I went back and figured I'll give the MW07's another shot. I took the seinheissers back and picked up my second set of MW07's in tortoiseshell. I didn't make it out of the parking lot before they were in my ears. They paired up perfect. Sounded great just like the first pair. I swapped the insert to a large (comes with mediums installed) and I listened to them for 2-3 hours once I got home. No discomfort or anything after 2-3 hours of wear. I might've only given them 4 stars for having defective ones right out of the box but they're customer service was very prompt and offered to exchange them after a couple emails back and forth about trying to fix them. Overall, I'm very happy with these earbuds and feel like they're worth the money.

    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.

    Great Audio quality in a really portable package!

    I've only got around 20 hours on these so far, but wow, what great audio quality from wireless buds! I've a number of higher-than-average headphones (HD700, HE500, PM3, QC35, M50x, etc) but I've been "living" with my Apple AirPods for the portability. The sounds quality was mediocre and I'm often listening in restaurants and cafes and would prefer more isolation than they provide. So, in steps the MW07... I grabbed them from BestBuy as soon as they were available for order. I know that the $300 selling price may seem high to some, but if you can generally hear a difference in audio quality, these are the way to go. I've been using the Audeze PM-3 and Bose QC35 for my portable listening and have been very happy with them. I'd rank these MW07 right along side the Bose but really appreciate the fact that I can have them in my pocket all the time. Now, how about some cons? 1. I'm somewhat prone to sibilance at louder levels (I HAD to tame the HD700, for example). I find that with the stock ear tips I can't listen above 1/2 using the stock music app (iPhone 6s+) for very long without fatigue. I changed out the tips for comply tips which helped a lot but didn't totally solve the problem. So, when I want to listen to something loud, I use the audio player, "Equalizer" with a -3dB drop at 6000Hz (Q of .8). This totally solves the problem for me. 2. I think the greatest weakness of the MW07 is the battery life. Yes, the case can charge them several times, but I'm only getting around 3hrs of listening before I'm forced to take a break to recharge. I'm enjoying them so much that I just want to keep listening. 3. The travel case is a finger-print magnet. I assumed that going in. 4. There have been a couple of times that I paused the music and lost the left ear when it resumed. I've put them back in the case for a sec and then they're fine. Otherwise, the bluetooth connection seems to be stable. 5. Call quality is ok. Not great, not bad, just ok. For the asking price, I think these are a tremendous purchase if you value great audio quality AND portability. The highest praise I can give is that if they were lost, I'd buy another pair. No question about it.

    A great pair of true wireless earbuds

    Posted

    Okay, so I'm an earbud/headphone enthusiast. I have both wired and wireless earbuds, and both wired and wireless over-the-ear and on-the-ear headphones. Each has their own specific strengths, and which one I wear depends on the situation. Traveling, I like sound isolation. When exercising outside, sound isolation can be hazardous - so give me earbuds with good sound and an ability to hear what's going on around me, plus the ability to take phone calls, and I'm good. The MW07 is my first experience with true wireless earbuds. After unpacking everything, the earbuds - which were in the Charging Case - showed full battery as did the Charging case itself. The Charging Case is an attractive metal case with three LEDS on the front and a flip-lid on top to access the earbuds. The left and right LEDS represent the power status of both left and right earbuds, while the center LED is the power status of the case itself. Green signifies fully charged. The case, by the way, is a fingerprint magnet, although a quick swipe against my shirt or pants temporarily solves that problem. The earbuds will hold an estimated 3 ? hours of power when fully charged. A short 15-minute charge in the case will give the earbuds over an hour's charge, while the case when fully charged should give the earbuds 3 full charges. A pleasant surprise was the USB-C charging port on the Case. I use USB-C on a number of my newer pieces of equipment, thus alleviating my having to look around for an older USB connector type. Accessories provided with the earbuds include various tip sizes, like extra-small, small, medium, large and extra-large. These are the soft/flexible type, which I prefer because they better conform with my ear canals than do the hard ones you oftentimes receive. Also included were two large wings that hold the earbuds in place in the tuck of your ears. The medium-sized wings were already installed on the earbuds. Pairing with my phone was easy. As soon as I removed the buds from the charging case they were already in pairing mode. Less than a minute later I was listening to music. The right earbud has one multi-function button. With it you can pause playback or answer/end a call (1 push), jump forward (2 pushes), backwards (3 pushes), or hold down to activate (in my case) Google Assistant. I'd assume that Siri works on iPhones. On the left earbud, two buttons control up and down volume. I found the buttons on both earbuds to be small at first and difficult to tell if they were pressed. After a little practice they became easier to work with. I thought the MW07 earbuds felt very natural while wearing them. They're not heavy at all, and I didn't feel as though they were going to fall out of my ears during use. They also look good! I didn't have any connection difficulties of one earbud not communicating with the other, which apparently is a common complaint with other vendors products. Although staying with the smaller wing at this time, I may bump up to the larger one if they start to feel loose. I did try removing one earbud while listening to music to emulate what would happen if an earbud fell out or was knocked out. The earbud that was still in place immediately stopped playing music, thus letting me know that the other earbud was missing. That could come in real handy if you're a frequent commuter and have a tendency to drop things. The sound of these earbuds is outstanding. It was clear, with both buds perfectly in sync with each other. Sound ranges were perfect for my taste, and for me the bass is just right. I have an eclectic range of music likes, everything from pop, jazz, and rock. I tried music from each of those genres and they all sounded equally as good. Even Audible sounded just right. No static, nothing to complain about at all. I also played some YouTube videos and didn't see or hear any sync problems between sound and video. I then played parts of two movies - both with the same results as with YouTube. This hasn't always been the case with other Bluetooth devices. I placed and received a call using the earbuds. The clarity on my end was excellent. I was told by the caller that I sounded like I was on a speaker phone. Well, with earbuds that's exactly right. Even so, I was told that I was easy to understand throughout the call. I haven't tried taking a call when outside when it's windy out to see how that affects call quality. At $299, this pair is definitely on the higher end of the cost spectrum. However, the build quality is outstanding, as is the sound quality. Yes, I know that sound quality is subjective, but these meet my needs and that's all I know. And how about the 3 ? hour battery life. I'm rarely using earbuds for more than a couple of hours straight unless I'm traveling by air. For those cases, I have some sound isolation earbuds that I'd more likely be using. In the end, these earbuds are precisely what I'd recommend to someone looking for a solid product in the premium earbud market arena.

    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.
