    At age seventy-three, I consider myself a lifelong lover of all kinds of music, an audiophile. Back in the 50's I got started by building Hi Fidelity record players for family and friends. Was mesmerized by the faint glimmer of light from the vacuum tubes radiating out of the scores of ventilation holes, I drilled on the sides of my home made fabrications, to dissipate the heat. The 45's, 78's, and 33 1/3 LP's would spin while reverberating out then, the new-age music, 'Rock 'N Roll'. Those were the days - Loved every minute of it. It was during the 50's and 60's while assembling record players and sound amps for mics and speakers that I learned the 'Gold Standard' of superb audio – extraordinary sound reproduction and playback is only possible using the finest components available. Professional musicians, sound engineers, and people, who appreciate all the nuances of surround and high-octane sound agree. Today, I use a high-end A/V Receiver as the centerpiece of my home audio system. This component allows me to connect all my sound and video devices, 4K TV, smart phones, tablet, PC, Blueray player, and even older legacy devices too, like my 'old timey' record player – still love playing the vinyl. When an opportunity presented itself for me to review the Master & Dynamic, MW60 Wireless, Headphones, in exchange for a comprehensive and honest review, I was thrilled. Nothing against Bluetooth technology folks, but high-end headphones, which allow both, Bluetooth and 'wired' input, like the Master & Dynamic, MW60 is my 'Cup-Of-Tea'. When the package arrived I was immediately impressed by the great care taken to insure the headphones would NOT be damaged in shipment. The arrived in a foamed and scalloped inner enclosure, the exact shape of the headphones, inside of a heavy, outer shell box. Neatly packaged in the box was the following: the MW60 headphones, canvas carrying pouch for the headphones, canvas cord case, sturdy leather cable box, 1.25m standard audio cable (approximately 4' and 1” in length), micro USB charging cable (approximately 38” long), and a 3.5 to 6.3mm gold-plated adapter, 'Quick-Start Guide, and impressive 'User Manual', in seven different languages, that contains many helpful, graphic illustrations, and detailed operations. Just picking up the headphones in my hands I knew these were 'quality-built'. The look and feel of the materials in the design, engineering, and construction of these headphones is 'over-the-top'. My first impression was that these headphones were designed to be as professional-grade as possible. Durable stainless steel hinges and extensions for adjustment, lightweight aluminum housings for the speakers and antenna, long-lasting superior, grain leather-wrapped headband, and the luxurious, foam-wrapped, magnetized, lambskin ear pads, which can be easily removed for cleaning or entirely replaced. The total weight of the headphones is approximately three-quarters of a pound or 345 grams. Additionally, the SS hinges allow me to wear the headband either on the top of my head, or, at the back of my neck, whichever I prefer at the time. It just doesn't get any more professional then this, folks. These headphones are built to enjoy and last for many years. WooHoo! The main power controls are located on the Left-side ear pad. The ear pads are engraved on the SS hinges as to 'R', right side and 'L', left side. Since I am left-handed, the position of the main controls is ideal for me. However, it should work extremely well for either left or right handed people. The main control is a three positioned switch. The Middle position is 'ON'; the bottom, red-dot position is 'OFF', and the Bluetooth position is self-explanatory. Pairing is simple and it only took me thirty seconds to accomplish with my Bluetooth Receiver. I was also able to pair my I-Phone as the unit allows the pairing of two separate Bluetooth devices at the same time. You can simply 'toggle' back and forth between the two inputs by pausing one device remotely, in order to play the other. Just above the power switch are two LED indicators, which one will glow red on low battery, orange on medium battery, and green on full battery. A fully charged battery will last approximately sixteen hours. Also on the Left side ear pad is my favorite jack, the 3.5mm, wired audio jack. This is the one I use pretty much most (all) of the time. In my humble opinion after many years of listening and appreciating great sound playback, hard-wired connections provide me with more encompassing, realistic, surround sound detail then any other link to include the greatly improved Bluetooth featured in these amazing headphones. I simply plug the 3.5mm audio jack into my A/V Receiver's corresponding outlet, which allows me inputs from seven different audio sources through the Receiver's switches in addition to digital radio and TV sound broadcasts. But, what is most important to me is the 3.5mm, wired connection provides me with impeccable, and almost flawless audio playback to these outstanding, dynamic headphones. The myriad, complexity of the detailed audio using the wired connection is so comprehensive and enveloping it completely fulfills the mission the sound engineers of Master & Dynamic set out to do with the MW60 headphones. This is why the Master & Dynamic, MW60 Headphones are so well designed and excellent. They provide you with the best of both worlds, hard-wired and Bluetooth connections. They knew people like me (and you) would enjoy these professional-grade headphones to their fullest. YooHoo! It is also noteworthy to mention that when you utilize the 3.5mm connections your headphone internal power source shuts down as the 3.5mm source provides the power and input to these fantastic headphones. Another great feature is that when your internal battery-source power is shut down, 'passive-audio-isolation-by-design' is engaged. These terrific headphones do not have 'Noise-Cancellation' electronics feature. They utilize a more user-friendly passive, noise isolation instead of electronic signal 'clutter', which you may perceive as noise cancellation. Trust me and other audiophiles, passive noise isolation is far superior to degrading, signal-manipulating, noise cancellation. Do your research. The Right side ear pad has three functional buttons. A plus and minus button for individual volume control and a multi-functional button (MFB) in the middle. Plus (+) button serves as 'forward' and Minus (-) serves as 'previous' track buttons while depressing each for two seconds. The MFB button is used to serve as a Play/Pause button, and, answer and end phone call button. Additionally, the MFB can be used to ignore a call or use your digital assistant for voice dial. On my I-Phone Siri worked well with this feature. The USB charging port is also located on the very bottom of the Right side ear pad. Any 'active' USB port will charge these headphones, however, I used my I-Phone plug and, it charged them in just over an hour. Now, regarding the sound playback. In my opinion for contemporary music, modern day, easy-listening, rhythm & blues, country, jazz, or rock, etc. the Bluetooth connection does a spectacular job. If you have a Receiver or any other kind of 'input' device that has an EQ you can pump up the bass, treble, or mid ranges, to your particular liking and this baby will take it. Even if you don't have an input access that has an EQ, the absolute crispness, clarity, and robust warmth and richness of music will convince you that these are the best headphones you can buy and will enjoy for years. These headphones come with a two year warranty, which is good at any retailer you purchase them from. If you are a music geek like I am the Master & Dynamic MW60 Wireless Headphones are the closest thing you are going to get to Professional-Grade perfection in sound playback. Using the 3.5mm audio cable takes me to another world, where realistic, lifelike sounds envelop my ears and tantalizes my listening pleasures for total and complete relaxation and gratification. Playing my vinyl records has never been more pleasurable to listen too – so realistic and true to their original recording. I love these headphones. Because of their exquisite design these headphones are super comfortable to wear and the luxurious, lambskin padding provides a soft cushion delight for your ears. If you only connect to Bluetooth you can move around within limits – over-the-ear headphones are meant for you to be quietly relaxed and emotionally tuned in to your listening venue. I wholeheartedly recommend these spectacular headphones. They would make a great gift for that special grad, special couple, Fathers' Day, Birthday, Anniversary, etc. With all my years of experience in music build, appreciation, and reproduction – Master & Dynamic MW60 Headphones are as close to flawless playback as you can get and well worth the price point.

    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!

    Master and Dynamic MW60 Packaging was good, very nicely thought out, comes with a carrying case, and a round container to keep charging and pass through cords in. The MW60 is a quality piece. Everything exudes quality, from the memory foam ear pieces that are magnetic for easy replacement to the cowhide wrapped head band. These headphones can be worn for hours without hurting your ears from pinching them down like many other headphones. These are the over the ear pieces and are very comfortable. I tested this unit on android and IOS devices, as well as PC and none of them disappointed. The sound level can get very loud but not ear piercing loud. Loud enough to do damage after time I’m sure but I loved to turn it up and lay back and listen to very clear, quality sound. (There is a beeping tone when you have reach the upper limit of volume.) I heard notes and cords I hadn’t hear before with my previous cheap set I had. The treble, mid tones and bass all complement each other for outstanding sound. Set up is easy just hold the button on the Bluetooth for a few seconds and scan your device for them. Connects in a flash and you are ready to go. These will also allow you to pick up incoming calls by hitting the MBR symbol and MBR again to hang up. Upon testing a few times I was able to get them to work with no issues. To access your voice assistant OK GOOGLE/SIRI and the ability to ignore a call simply by holding down the MBR button for 2 seconds. I was also able to get the ignore call to work easily on an incoming call. Voice assistance worked as well, but I was unable to get back to the music without pulling out my phone and manually starting it again. The + and - buttons act as Volume up and down as well as skipping to next and start from beginning. My set was shipped with almost a full charge so I started using them right away. Long lasting battery, fairly quick charging. No need to worry about firmware updates as these phones will update themselves when you are connected to the internet. Great for any occasion, I love to use mine while kicking back outside or mowing. I would recommend the MW60's to any Audiophile I know.

    Oh My Goodness...

    Oh my goodness... With how much these Master and Dynamic MV60 wireless over-ear headphones cost, I expected quality. But not like this, from the packaging, which was incredibly detailed, to the quality of lambskin on the ear defenders. The leather is so soft and comfortable on your head for numerous hours. These ear defenders actually attach with rare earth magnets, so they will stay put, but are easy to take off for cleaning. The construction of Stainless Steel and Aluminum makes them feel durable, and look incredible. I have not used them for a full 16 hours yet, but that is what the specifications boast they should be able to obtain. They did not forget to include a microphone for when a must answer call comes in while you're listening to what your heart desires. The detail the expressed in the design of the tactile controls is appreciated. I don't have to be gentle with my gorilla hands when switching things about. They are crisp and responsive and are actually well placed with large enough footprints that they are easy to find. I embrace the fact that they come with a case, so that when they are not in use they have a layer of protection. The sound quality of these headphones is top notch. With a frequency range from 5-25000 hertz, I was afraid they might loose a little bit of range that I would notice. Another set of headphones I have from a major competitor's frequency range is 4-40000 hertz, even with that being said, these MV60's still produce an almost perfect blend of highs and lows for my ears anyways. The only feature these are missing, is noise cancelling. I could see where that could be useful when traveling, to be able to listen in on your surroundings or block them out completely. But with that being said, there are plenty of other head sets that offer such features. These are incredible, a bit pricey, but for my audiophile friends, these are a must for your wireless listening. These get a 5 out 5 stars. From design, to materials and to the excellent sound quality.

Designed and Developed by New Audio LLC New York, NY 10001. Made in China. - Input: 5.0V, 190mA What's in the box? 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.

    Master & Dynamic MW60 Very Nice and Clean

    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. Overview Premium Grain Leather Headband with Lambskin Interior Removable/Replaceable Memory Foam Ear Pads with Lambskin Covering Forged Aluminum Components 3.5mm Passive Audio Input Stainless Steel Adjustment Arm Stainless Steel Hinge Premium Grain Leather Inlay Micro USB Input Machined Aluminum Antenna Omnidirectional Microphone SPECS Dimensions 200mm x 185mm x 50mm Weight 345g Bluetooth Profile Bluetooth 4.1 with Aptx Impedance 32 ohms Drivers 45mm Neodymium High-performance Drivers They did't skip out on the QUALITY very nice well built.

    Classy Look With Transcendent Sound

    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.

    Wireless Over-Ear Headphones with Warm, Rich Sound

    Recently I had a small collection of headphones. Being that I'm hard of hearing, I have always been on the lookout for a great set of sound cans. My problem is once I find a good pair I quickly learn my style of music doesn't play as well as I would like though them. I listen to all sorts of different types of music from grunge, classical, rock, hip-hop, and music scores. Being that it's such a wide variety, my headphone collection seems to keep growing. I have a pair for this and that but nothing that really takes the cake for all purposes. Master & Dynamic has been making sound devices since 2014 and they have carefully crafted some of my favorite headphones over the years. The one problem with them is that they never really put out an over-ear headphone that was wireless that I would enjoy wearing until now. The MW60 has changed that as they have some of the best, crisp sound that I've heard and they work for all music genres. I despise wired headphones as I can't seem to keep the wire out of everything I'm doing. Needless to say, I was very excited at the opportunity to check out the MW60s. At first glance, I was very impressed with the quality of the build. When you pull them from the box, you know that you are holding sophistication at its best. Being over-ear headphones, they cut out a lot of noise from the area you're in but they are by no means designed for noise canceling headphones. That's not a complaint. I just wanted anyone looking at these to know that while they isolate pretty well, they don't cancel out noise. You can still get some ambient noise bleed through, but it's not a distracting amount. Noise canceling aside, the MW60's will be my everyday headphones and have found a permanent place on my desk. With the long battery life and the superior comfort they provide, these are behind amazing for all day use. These are definitely my premium headphones that I'm proud to display when not using them. The only complaint I do have is the Canvas Headphone Pouch that comes with the MW60s. I feel that such a premium set of headphones deserves a premium case to match it. While it's very well made, I think that the canvas pouch doesn't fit the luxury of the MW60s. I would have preferred that a hard case is provided or made available as an add-on for these headphones. I had a hard time storing the headphones in the pouch without feeling as though I might damage the leather. Because I love these headphones so much I plan on picking up a hardshell case. The MW60 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones are a beautiful example of what wireless headphones should be. They are sophistication in form and function. You won't find better headphones in the same class as the MW60s.

    I got my silver-brown MW60 and took them out of their box earlier today. I plugged them up to charge right away and the charge light went green within just a few minutes. Then I paired them with my phone and commenced to put them through a trial of my favorite music from a wide array of genres, from classical to metal. The fit, comfort, and sound are impressively immersive and balanced across genres -- and what a fantastic feel and build quality! And despite being solid and compact they're very comfortable to wear and much less bulky than I expected them to be for an over-the-ear design. I like that the MW60s support Bluetooth and that may well be how I end up using them most of each day but I am also pleased they included an audio cable for wired connections, and a 1/4" adapter when needed. This is great because now I can use the MW60s with my phone casually, conveniently, and wirelessly; but I am also a musician and can keep right on using them with the cable and adapter to connect to my keyboard when I'm making my own music. It's a small trick but a nice touch and one that helps the MW60 play a role as a legitimately flexible companion and tool in my audio world. Color me an impressed and proud new fan of M&D.

    Gorgeous Luxury BT Headphones

    • Top 25 ContributorTop 25 Contributor

    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.

    The MW60’s are super high-end headphones with fantastic sound and quite possibly the best build quality of any electronic device I’ve ever used. Extremely stylish over the ear headphones with a stainless steel construction, in a very cool brown leather color. Headband is made from padded leather with stainless steel components. Ear cups are made with lambskin and are very comfortable. All the components are made to fit together well and work as they should. The on-cup playback and pairing controls are easy to learn and positioned perfectly to locate them easily by touch. The headphones do collapse for storage and include a pouch but portability is not the major take away here. The MW60’s are somewhat heavy and bulky and not really headphones you would want to take outside on a run or work outs. More for sitting in your house or doing things inside when you want to listen to music. That being said they are very comfortable to wear for a couple of hours at a time without becoming a distraction. Bluetooth range is fantastic. I can roam all over my house on two floors without any signal loss at all which is quite impressive. I can be sixty feet away from the source device and they work fantastic. Battery life so far is quite good, used them for over seven hours on a few different occasions and still have over 50% battery life remaining. Sound quality of the MW60’s is very impressive as they should be considering the cost. Music was very good with a balanced clear sound to them, not overly bass heavy like some headphones but a good well defined sound without the highs, midrange and bass falling over each over to be heard. Movie soundtracks are really great, voices are clear and easy to understand over the rest of the soundtrack. Even used them with Xbox games and they were great. I didn’t really hear much of a difference in sound quality using Bluetooth or the provided 3.5mm cable but wireless is about being free of the cables so it’s not an issue for me. These headphones don’t have noise cancelling technology but not a deal breaker in my opinion. All in all a fantastic pair of headphones with great build quality and really good sound. They are a bit on the heavy side for use outside or activities but for the purpose they were designed for I don’t think there’s a better set of over the ear headphones available right now.

    Given the price, these headphones have the best quality in both sound and design out of all my other headphones. To adjust them, they don't click, they slide which could be a problem down the line as they continue to wear and tear. Bluetooth and microphone to make and answer phone calls. Pretty standard with wireless headphones nowadays. With the volume all the way up, it sounds like it would be too loud from and outside point of view, but inside, it's comfortably immersive. Just enough bass and so clear, it's as if you are in the booth listening to the artist lay the track down. The leather exterior along with the cloth charge and aux cords gives it that elegant and sophisticated look and I love that it folds for easy transport. There is a travel pouch for the cords and a sturdy travel bag for the headphones. Keep in mind, there are no special features that these headphones have that other, more affordable headphones don't have. (Except maybe being able to connect to TWO Bluetooth devices at the SAME TIME) You definitely get what you pay for, the handcrafted leather, the rich and clean sound. I would only recommend this to people who have the money.

    Fantastic head phones! They stay charged FOREVER! I had them fully charged and used them for an hour on average 6 times a week and did not need to charge them again for a month! The only complaints I have is when doing certain exercises they tend to slide off my head a little so I have to adjust them a few times.

    Beautiful styling, very durable long-lasting construction and great sound! These foldable, over the ear headphones with tactile controls are fantastic. They are quite comfortable, even when I wear glasses over extended periods of time. The style is modern yet timeless, using premium luxury leathers; rich cowhide for the headband – soft lamb for the ear pads. The component materials are all high quality stainless steel and other durable premium materials with perfect fit and finish. The sound is very natural with great detailed highs, mids and solid base providing a rich, warm sound with superb noise isolation, maintaining the perfect equilibrium of aesthetics, durability, comfort and functionality. When used with a player’s equalizer they handled a broad selection of musical genres with perfection. The custom antenna combined with Bluetooth 4.1 and Qualcomm® aptX™ with multi-device connection capability provide best in class quality, connectivity and range. Battery life is above average, easily accommodating a full day of pure listening pleasure. Parts like ear-pads are easily replaceable and available on their web site. By the way their website should win a UX design award as it was quite attractive and easy to navigate while still providing all of the info I was looking to obtain. Last but not least their packaging is both functional and stylish. GREAT HEADPHONES!

    When unboxing and handling all of the materials included with this Bluetooth headphone set the first words that come to mind are HIGH QUALITY. This fairly new company out of NYC has done a fantastic job, from the leather case that holds the included cables to the cool stainless steel, aluminum and leather on the headphones it doesn't get much better than this. With that said the sound better match the promise of all of this high end material and design...and I am here to tell you they do not disappoint. The highs are crisp, the bass is tight and not muddy, and they just sound fantastic. You can pair with multiple devices and also use them for phone calls. The battery life is incredible at over 16 hours. All of this quality built in does come at somewhat of a cost as they are a bit heavier than other over the ear headphones but I didn't mind that at all as they feel so substantial when holding and using that I am ok with it. They also are not noise cancelling which some folks do look for. Overall, I would absolutely recommend these to anyone who is looking for uncompromising sound and quality in Bluetooth headphones, you will not be disappointed and will enjoy these for years to come.

    Wow, I love these headphones, my Bose quiet comfort headphones are now officially collecting dust. These do not have noise cancelling but once the music start it seems like they do. Okay first off one of the things I love is quality packaging in high end gear. They did not fail me in packaging, excellent job with a high end feel at every aspect even the thick cellophane encasing the box. A nice pouch is included as well as a small round leather box to hold the cables. They arrived with plenty of juice to hook them up and go to town. I wasn't able to connect them to my Pixel but it may be due to a software update or something, I will delve into that later. I fired up my mini and started up a movie first, not my usual way to watch a movie or TV but pretending I was traveling and it sounded great. Pandora was next. I hit shuffle and closed my eyes. I listened to music for a good hour and it didn't matter what type of music I tossed at it, I was not disappointed. I fired up a few games and made a few calls with no issues. These headphones do have a heft to them but I prefer the solid quality and its worth the extra weight. Cheap plastic headphones just don't hold up. I can see these being around for a very long time as long as the battery can be replaced in the future. My wife tried them out and didn't want to give them back lol. I can't see doing any strenuous activities with these on, but if you want to chill out, have a cocktail and get away for a bit than these are a must buy. If you enjoy un-packaging amazing items and the smell of fresh leather that these are also for you. Forgot to mention the buttons. They are minimal and sleek. i love em. The entire package is great and you won't go wrong with purchasing a set.

    The build quality on these is bar none. The sound quality is also very good, especially once you break these in. Very good bass response and clear highs. If you like headphones that can get very loud, these are one of the best. Keep in mind there is no noise cancelling. Didn't bother me unless I was walking down the street of a busy intersection. Well worth the price.
