Master & Dynamic MW60: A spectacularly designed but pricey wireless headphoneThe MW60 sounds very good and features a great industrial design, but it doesn't come cheap.
This is Master & Dynamic's MW60 wireless Bluetooth headphone, which costs $550 and comes in black or brown. In case you've never heard of Master & Dynamic, it's a new company that made a name for itself with its MH40 headphone, the wired model that this is based on. Design wise, the MW60 is a great looking headphone that's really well built with metal parts, leather trim, and folding hinges. It's also comfortable, though somewhat on the heavy side, weighing in at 12.2 ounces, or 345 grams. For those with smaller heads, this headphone may be a tad large, It barely fir my head, but I like the feel of the lamb skin covered ear cups and overall this definitely comes across as a premium headphone. It also has good battery life at around 68 hours and maintained a consistent wireless connection. We like how the wired version of this headphone sounds and we like how this sounds, it's an excellent bluetooth headphone It offers clean, even handed sound with tight bass. That said, it doesn't sound quite as rich or detailed as Sennheiser's momentum wireless, which costs a little less and adds noise cancelling. In the end, aside from slightly heavy, the only real knock against this headphone is that it costs too much. It sounds very good, but not $550 good. But if you can overlook the high price, it's a beautifully designed head phone. I'm David Carnoy. Thanks for watching.
