Master & Dynamic MW50
The new MW50 use the finest materials such as premium leathers, stainless steel and aluminum, and feature Master & Dynamic's signature lambskin-covered memory foam earpads. Custom 40mm beryllium drivers produce rich, warm sound profile, while a patent-pending milled aluminum external antenna allows for a range of connectivity which is three-times the industry standard.
The company says it allows users up to 100 feet away from a mobile phone or other connected device to use the MW50 without a cable. The battery is quickly charged via a USB-C port, and lasts 16 hours, the length of a flight from New York City to Hong Kong. The battery also can be bypassed by connecting directly to an audio device via the included woven cable.
The product is 30% smaller and lighter than the MW60 wireless over-ear headphones without inhibiting any of their renowned wireless transmission, connectivity or sound. Much like the MW60 over-ears, MW50 on-ears utilize the same discrete, tactile buttons to control volume and pause, play or repeat a song.
The MW50 could be the perfect everyday sound tool for the modern traveler, accommodating the same multi-point connection for a smooth transition from phone to computer as the MW60 in a smaller, lighter form. Like the MW60, the MW50 headphones also employ a microphone array, which is built into the antenna for increased noise rejection and crystal clear calling. MW50 are available in silver/black and silver/brown colorways for $449. Info and photos by Master & Dynamic.
