For a pair of headphones that are incredibly pricey, the Master & Dynamic MW60 needs to sound good and bring good comfort, and for the most part, it does. It is outfitted with premium leather and stainless steel which, when combined into a beautiful looking design, makes for a handsome, comfy pair of headphones. When it comes to its audio performance, fans of the low-end spectrum won’t find what they’re looking for here. However, anyone seeking a more flat signature with focused-mids will like the audio reproduction of the MW60. But it still feels overpriced even with its premium design, build quality, and audio performance.
The Master & Dynamic MW60 Falls Short of Justifying its High Price Tag
Those who don’t mind shelling out the cash to get the Master & Dynamic MW60, do note that the headphones are available in either black or brown models. It brings optimum comfort the likes of which many rivals in its class could not compete with. Its leather and stainless-steel frames are not only very easy on the eyes, , the earpads feel amazing as with the headband. Even the word comfort is an understatement.
In a unique design twist, the MW60 headphones claims to have an exposed antenna which is comprised of aluminum. It makes up a part of its outer earcup frames. This allows for an above average signal range as it claims to receive audio range from about 100-feet away. Most Bluetooth headphones can only receive up to a maximum of 35-feet, more or less. However, doors and walls will still present challenges when attempting to get good signal.
Within the earcups are 45-millimeter neodynium drivers which deliver the audio. The power switch, which is also the Bluetooth pairing switch, is found on the left earcup’s outer panel. Within the same location, there’s the pinhole microphones for fielding phone calls. On the right earcup, there are two buttons which handle the volume control and track navigation. There is also a central multifunction on the same earcup to control playback and manage calls. A micro-USB port for charging purposes can be found on the right earcup.
Tracks with powerful sub-bass signatures will deliver an accurate strong with plenty of kick. The bass frequencies do not overlap with the mids and other parts of the spectrum so it delivers a more accurate audio performance. Sound do not distort even at high volumes. Hence, this is a pair of headphones aimed for audiophiles who like to enjoy pure reproduction of their favorite tracks.
But for those who are looking for a more bassy response, the Master & Dynamic MW60 may not be for you. On the other hand, if you want clear, crisp audio coupled with great comfort and style, then you may want to put down your list and just go for this one; that is, if you don’t mind shelling out a large amount of cash to purchase it.
