Kensington understands that no business wants to be tied to USB 3.0 technology as it is being replaced by faster and better protocols, while at the same time recognizing that it isn't practical for an organization to incur the expense and loss of productivity to replace every legacy device with one that supports USB-C.

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. In keeping with Master & Dynamic's commitment to creativity, unrivaled craftsmanship and premium materials, the MW50 Wireless On-Ear Headphones are a combination of the brand's signature "form meets function" design and the latest technology.

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.

The MW50 On-Ear Headphones share the same product DNA as all Master & Dynamic products.

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.
