Master & Dynamic Launches Their Second Pair of Wireless Headphones

New York City-based premium audio company Master & Dynamic expanded its growing line of products with its second wireless headphones: the MW50 Wireless On-Ear Headphones.

A patent-pending milled aluminum external antenna allows for a range of connectivity which is three-times the industry standard, enabling users up to 100 feet away from a mobile phone or other connected device to use the MW50 without a cable.

Built to last, the MW50 Wireless Headphones use the finest materials such as premium leathers, stainless steel and aluminum, and feature Master & Dynamic's signature lambskin-covered memory foam ear pads. The battery is quickly charged via a USB-C port, and lasts 16-hours, the length of a flight from New York City to Hong Kong. The battery also can be bypassed by connecting directly to an audio device via the included heavy-duty woven cable.
