Wireless over-ear headphones with warm, rich sound and class
In my relentless pursuit of the ‘right’ set of headphones, I’ve amassed quite a collection of just ‘ok’ ones. I have an eclectic taste in music and I’m also hard of hearing. These two issues can make it difficult for me to find a set of headphones that really works for all purposes for me. I might have one set that sounds great with rock ‘n roll but falls flat with hip-hop music. This is the reason why I have so many pairs of headphones. Fortunately, I happened to obtain a pair of MW60 Wireless Over-ear Headphones from Master & Dynamic and I’ve found that my days of searching are over.
The MW60s are a very solid pair of headphones. They fit comfortably over the ears and are built from quality materials. I was very impressed with them from the moment I removed them from their box; you know that you are holding sophistication at its best. The headphones come packaged with a canvas headphone pouch, canvas cable pouch, 1.25m aux cable with a 3.5/6.3mm Gold-Plated Adapter, leather cable box, and a Micro USB charging cable. They feature a 16-hour rechargeable battery as well as:
- Aluminum antennae ensures 4x industry average signal range
- Heavy grain premium cowhide on headband exterior surface and ear cup accents, soft lambskin on headband interior and ear pads
- Stainless steel foldable hinges
- 45mm Neodymium High-Performance Drivers
- Tactile controls on the right ear
- Omni-directional microphone isolates noise and ensures clarity during use
- Super comfortable earpads made from memory foam and lambskin
- Bluetooth 4.1 with Aptx™ high-quality audio
- Passive audio available when wireless disabled, via a 3.5mm cable
When I first started using them, I noticed that my being hard of hearing was not a problem for the MW60s. They produce such a clean, crisp sound that I can easily enjoy any style of music when I use them. The headphones are very comfortable to wear even though they are a bit heavier than some of their competitors. The tactile controls are easy to use and I love that there is a microphone built-in because I can answer calls without needing to remove the cans.
Being over the ear headphones, they cut out a lot of ambient noise but they are by no means designed as noise canceling headphones. That’s not a complaint. I just wanted anyone looking at these to know that while they isolate well, they don’t ‘cancel’ out noise. You can still get some ambient noise bleed through, but it’s not a distracting amount. I’ve still been able to work easily in quieter public settings like libraries while wearing the MW60s.
Noise canceling aside, I plan on the MW60’s being 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 beyond amazing for all day use. These are definitely premium headphones and I’m proud to display them on my desk when they aren’t in use.
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 style of the MW60s. I would have preferred that a hard case be 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. I would suggest this one – Hardshell case.
The MW60 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones are a beautiful example of what wireless headphones should be. They exude sophistication in form and function. You won’t find better headphones in the same class as the MW60s.
