Master & Dynamic MW65
These are bootiful. Chalked full of retro design cues and the use of only premium materials that include aluminum, cowhide leather and lambskin covered memory foam. This is one hell of a personal statement to own. Master & Dynamic Audio has made a splash in the audio world with these Master & Dynamic MW65’s. As premium and cosmopolitan as these are, they also carried a premium price tag with them. Luckily, prices have eased as I believe a new product is getting ready to be released. (Click on the image to see prices and other relevant information.) Now, I am no fortune teller or soothsayer, so this is just my opinion.
The sound that comes out of these cans can be thought of as what a composer wants from his orchestra. Balance. The pure balance of sound. There is no amped up bass, but just clear balanced sounds of the uppers. mids and lows. All just playing with each other in a natural sound environment. All clean, natural and….balanced. Sound as it should be.
These have a claimed battery life of 24hrs and has Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). The ANC has three settings, high, low and off. It includes a quick charge feature which claims 15 minutes of charging will yield 12hrs. of playtime. This also has two microphones to give you crisp and clear phone calls. This is also is one of th lightest premium headphones on the market with the weight being 245 grams.
The Master & Dynamics MW65 is a sophisticated piece of hardware. Its looks are impressive made with the best materials. The design engineers of these should be very proud of building such a fine piece of equipment.
Master & Dynamic MW50+
Another beauty in the stable of Master & Dynamic. A beautiful design with premium materials and an audiophile sound profile sounds like a winner to me. Comfortable and lightweight these are the Cat’s meow. If you don’t recognize that reference then I’m old…Go look it up…I’ll wait. Okay? Got it? Yup. It means that something is appealing…Shall we continue?
The premium materials used throughout this piece of art is impressive. From the premium grade cowhide leather on the exterior headband and the earcup accents to the lambskin backed with soft memory foam on the headband interior. Additionally this has lambskin earpads also backed with memory foam. And they planned it for a long life with interchange parts readily available.
Claimed battery life on a single full charge is 16hrs. They also use elegantly designed controls but may be small for some users. These do not have Active Noise Cancellation but are being marketed as studio & recording headphone so this means that it has a good noise isolation and I am showcasing the over the ear model. An on the ear model is also available if you can find it.
The sound profile as always with Master & Dynamic is great sound separation in the lows, mids to the highs. A clean audio experience is to be had. Balance and neutrality has always been a major focal point for Master & Dynamic and their sound can only be enhanced with their 40mm beryllium drivers.
So to conclude this review I give the Master & Dynamic MW50+ high marks as I especially love their design elements in their products.
Master & Dynamic MA770
OMG!!! I just got an erection. This is what I call practical sculptural art. An art piece that you can use. This is what I call a beautiful beast. Made with a proprietary concrete composite this is one solid speaker. It weighs over 36lbs, has a 1.5″ titanium dome tweeter and the (2) 4″ sub-woofers are woven Kevlar. The amplifier pushes 100W of class D power. Other materials used are stainless steel and diamond cut anodized aluminum for the control panel. It also comes with a magnetic grille if you want to cover those beautiful drivers. You might want to use them to keep guests from touching the drivers as they are a no touch zone.
This is a premium product no doubt with gorgeous looks. It uses both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity to a smartphone or whatever device you may use. There are other ways to connect to the Master & Dynamic MA770 as well. A 3.5mm auxiliary jack and an optical audio link is also available for you to use and Chromecast is also built in. Streaming services are also available. Can be paired with another MA770 to give you an exceptional stereo sound experience. That’s if you have the extra cash you can part with.
Constructed in a seamless concrete composite form these will produce totally immersive sounds. Filling a large room with a sophisticated audio sounds. The sound profile can only be described as tight, solid and heavenly. It has the power to produce exceptional bass notes while keeping the mids and highs equally on the same level. There is no shaking of the speaker because of its construction and weight. Its as solid as speakers come and a step or two above. This speaker is impressive. Most impressive.
Master & Dynamic MW07+

This particular set features handcrafted acetate exterior shells to give them a different kind sophisticated look and feel. But don’t it good looks fool you. This little device has some great tech engineered in to them.
Lets start with the sound profile. As you have read in the above items that I have showcased, these are not bass enhanced. Instead they as well of all of Master & Dynamic products key in on natural clean sound. The sound separations are exquisite and neutral. It has enough bass along with exceptional mids and highs quench just about anybody who fancies themselves an audiophile. They come with 10mm beryllium drivers to deliver beautiful acoustics to your ears.
These also come with their patented silicone fit wings. These are molded ear pieces to give your ear a secure shake proof fit in your ear, and in the box it has three different sizes to further give you a good, better and best fit. These are also rated IPX5 which means it can withstand a direct spray of water.
Claimed battery life is 10hrs before you need to charge up, but the carrying case can hold 3 full charges. So you just pop them into the case and they will charge up giving you a total of 40hrs. of playtime. The carrying case is gorgeous as well. Besides carrying your earphones in luxury the outside is made of chrome. A nightmare for fingerprints but what a statement when it comes out in all of its shiny and clean glory.

Listening to music is subjective. The sound that emanates from any of these headphones, earbuds, speakers and the like, will be different for each individual. So please be aware, what may sound good to me doesn’t mean it will sound good to you. Please read or watch reviews on any product that I showcase. Or listen to a friends’. Or, go to a retail store and try it out there. A little knowledge can go a long way…then you can buy from me. (Wink, wink)
