Master & Dynamic has introduced new wireless headphones called MW65. This is the first time this American sound brand has introduced active noise cancelling into its products. This product will compete directly with other noise-canceling headphones from Sony and Bose, but the price for MW65 is up to $499 which is much higher than its competitors.
The newly introduced MW65 headphones has a similar design language with its predecessor model MW60, combining a real lambskin with a high-grade aluminum frame that makes Master & Dynamic ears always feel good. However, different from its predecessor, the earcup part of MW65 uses the open design similar to the MH40 model. Similar to the other headphones of the Master & Dynamic MW65, there will be two different versions of brown and gunmetal at the time of launch.
In order to compete with the majority of today’s high-end wireless headphones, Master & Dynamic has decided to upgrade from MW60 to MW65 with active noise cancelling along with voice assistant support. MW65 is equipped with a dedicated button for smart voice assistants. Although MW65 is optimized for Google Assistant, users can still use Siri on iOS. There is a button to adjust the different active noise levels on the headset. Of course, the product is also equipped with common control buttons such as play/pause, listen to the call, increase or decrease the volume.
Master & Dynamic MW65 uses Bluetooth 4.2 standard with connection distance up to about 20m. About the battery life of MW65 is also quite impressive with about 24 hours of continuous use in a single charge. At the same time, the headphones are also capable of fast charging up to 50% of the battery capacity with just 15 minutes of charging.
At $499, the MW65 has a much higher price than the two most popular active noise-canceling headphones today, Sony WH-1000XM3 and Bose QuietComfort 35 II. However, with Master & Dynamic MW65 users will experience a luxurious style with high-quality sound. Compared to MW60, MW65 is just $50 over, but with the addition of active noise-cancelling and intelligent voice assistant, it is totally worth it.
