Perhaps not that well known outside certain circles, New York brand Master & Dynamic creates audio products with a focus on high-end materials and expressive design. Such luxury does not come cheap, with their headline wireless speaker, designed by Sir David Adjaye, selling for an eye-watering $1,800. The MW07 are the company's first true wireless earbuds, and thankfully they won't be quite so pricey.
As with Master & Dynamic's other headphones and earbuds, these have been manufactured with some of the most premium materials available. The drivers are made from 10mm beryllium for a warm, expansive sound, with stainless steel used for the acoustic enclosures, and an external facade handcrafted from acetate. The antennas contain two patent-pending technologies along with Bluetooth 4.2 for a 20m range and reliable connectivity. Near Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI) is used to connect the master to the secondary earbud, and support for Aptx and AAC is on board.
Battery life of 3.5 hours is promised, with a further 3x full charges offered by the USB Type-C hand-polished stainless steel case for 14 in total. If you're in a hurry, 40% charge can be reached in just 15 minutes. A single button on each earbud has been preferred over touch controls, and they come with two sizes of silicone wings to ensure a snug fit.
Optical sensors are used to pause and resume playback when the earbuds are taken out. Although not mentioned in the press release, Master & Dynamic have confirmed to me that these do have Google Assistant capabilities. An IPX4 rating means they are at least splash proof.
The Master & Dynamic MW70 true wireless earbuds are on sale now for $299 on the official website. Four interesting colorways are available (from left to right, above): Grey Terrazzo, Steel Blue, Tortoiseshell, and Matte Black.
Master & Dynamic brings elevated design and materials to a new category with the MW07 True Wireless Earphones
Debuting for the first time ever handcrafted acetate and stainless steel, the MW07 True Wireless Earphones ($299) demonstrate unparalleled sound quality and design
[New York, NY] September 13, 2018: Since launching in 2014, New York City-based premium audio company Master & Dynamic has focused on offering the most beautifully appointed, sonically sophisticated audio products on the market. Today, Master & Dynamic proudly redefines the rapidly expanding true wireless earphone sector with the release of the
MW07 True Wireless Earphones ($299). Available in four initial colorways, Tortoiseshell, Steel Blue, Grey Terrazzo, and Matte Black, each pair of MW07’s is accompanied by an elegant stainless steel charging case. Featuring premium materials such as handcrafted acetate and stainless steel as well as 10mm Beryllium drivers, the MW07 demonstrates that high tech can also be high design. Two patent-pending technologies ensure best-in-class Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, superior comfort and personalized fit. This is all accomplished in a slim, close to the ear form factor. The MW07 True Wireless Earphones are available for $299 at www.masterdynamic.com
As with all Master & Dynamic products, the materials for the MW07 have been carefully curated. Handcrafted acetate, created through time-honored craftsmanship dating back to the 1800s and widely used in luxury sunglasses and eyewear, allows each individual earphone to be uniquely eye-catching, lightweight and incredibly durable. PVD-coated stainless steel is used for both the acoustic enclosures housing dynamic 10mm beryllium drivers to produce
Master & Dynamic’s signature sound, as well as the control buttons on each earphone that provide a sleek user interface.
Custom 10mm beryllium drivers, a metal traditionally used only in hi-fi products, provide exceptional acoustics and deliver a rich, warm, expansive sound. Optical sensors detect in-ear
placement so that the sound is both played and paused when the earphones are placed in and removed from the user’s ears. An innovative, detachable silicone “fit wing,” which comes in two sizes, along with five ear tip sizes, ensure the earphones can be comfortably and securely fitted to any ear. Placing the MW07 in the ear is remarkably easy, simply requiring a one-gesture placement from case to ear.
“Our goal is to offer the best of both superior sound and sophisticated design to our customers,” said Master & Dynamic’s Founder and CEO Jonathan Levine. “With the launch of the MW07, we’ve not only improved the user experience, but we’ve selected premium materials to take true wireless earphones into uncharted territory.”
To further blend form and function, the MW07 True Wireless Earphones are also at the forefront of mobility, providing up to 14 hours of on-the-go listening. The earphones themselves hold 3.5 hours of battery life when fully charged, while the elegant hand-polished stainless-steel charging case holds an additional 10.5 hours of listening time and can be charged to 50% in just 15- minutes via USB-C cable, making the MW07 the ultimate travel and communication tool.
