Looking at the available top-tier options right now, it might seem that Bose and Sony have a monopoly over active noise-canceling headphones. Yet, it looks like an upstart is cooking up a plan to upstage the competition. Master & Dynamic is pushing forth the MW65, a classy pair of wireless cans that blocks external noise. Looking at its design, it’s clear that the brand is marketing this as an upscale alternative for consumers.
Sources confirm that this is the company’s first foray into the active noise-canceling headphone market. Despite being the initial entry, it’s clear that the MW65 oozes premium form every angle. You’re getting a stylish pair crafted out of lightweight anodized aluminum and leather. Moreover, the plush over-ear lambskin cushions are user replaceable for convenience.
Not only does it block out unwanted noise, but the dual microphones also filter ambient sounds so that your voice remains clear. Within each earcup sits custom 40 mm beryllium drivers for superior audio reproduction. The combination of its active noise-canceling system and comfortable ear cushions deliver superb acoustics for the user.
The Master & Dynamic MW65 can connect to your media player via Bluetooth 4.2 or through a 3.5 mm cable. It supports AptX and SBC codecs for impressive digital audio streaming. Since most users use active noise-canceling headphones during flights, the package also includes an adapter. Moreover, Google Assistant compatibility means you can enjoy hands-free control anytime. The built-in rechargeable battery lasts up to 24 hours on a single charge. Furthermore, a quick 15-minute charge gives you 12 hours of playback time.
