Editor's recommendations: Master & Dynamic

The versatility of the semi-open Master & Dynamic MW50+ is certainly convincing. Included accessories definitely impress, while aesthetics, choice of materials and the quality of manufacturing are all up to discerning standards. Handling is also user-friendly, while the fit is exemplary. What’s more, Master & Dynamic’s proximity to the New York art scene has obviously had an effect on the development department. Freethinkers don’t want to be restricted when it comes to on-ear or over-ear decisions, so the option of both from the MW50+ is definitely welcome.

In terms of sound, two sound signatures are on offer, each with distinct character. With ear-covering cushions, the headphones produce a much richer sound, while providing overall enhanced volume and better isolation from external noise. If ear cushions are used, the sound is much more muffled. In either case, the MW50+ stands for powerful reproduction with detailed mids and high treble. The Bluetooth function of the M&D is easy to use, convenient and does not demonstrate any noticeable sound differences when compared to cable operation. The only real drawback is the low isolation from the outside world if you’re on the go with the MW50+, especially if you’re in a busy urban environment with a higher volume enabled. The bottom line is the Master & Dynamic MW50+ is an extremely versatile headphone, showing few weaknesses and offering plenty that will make sophisticated audiophiles very happy when it comes to listening across all genres.

Master & Dynamic MH40 Wireless

For around 500 Euros, headphone fans can enjoy reliable Bluetooth connectivity with high sound quality with these Master & Dynamic ANC headphones. In particular, the ANC capabilities of the MW65 excel in enabling the required feature, without impeding on the sound output itself. The headphones are made of premium materials, with a level of workmanship that has to be commended. Handling of the MW65 is consistently pleasant, whether you’re adjusting the headband size or making use of the space-saving pivot feature of the earpieces when packing them away to transport. The sound of these headphones is particularly convincing, with silky highs, rounded basses and concise mids that suffer from sounding too sharp. A slight drawback is the earpieces are on the smaller side, so may not be suitable for the listener with notably larger ears.

Whoever is looking for a consistently reliable listening companion for life on the go will find balanced sound and plenty more to enjoy with the Master & Dynamic MW65.
