The luxury audio brand Master & Dynamic designs a stylish alternative to those omnipresent white AirPods sprouting from everyone’s ears these days. The NYCbased company is getting famous for using premium materials like lambskin leather and anodized aluminum for luxurious pieces, such as MW65 over-ear headphones, and handcrafted acetate for the smooth MW07 earbuds. This last one has recently received a major upgrade in the form of the MW07 Plus. The new version now boasts more than triple the battery life of the original MW07, with 10 hours of listening time when fully charged and an extra 30 hours of battery life via the hand-polished stainless steel charging case. The MW07 Plus also has Bluetooth 5.0 with a 100-foot connection range, noise reduction mic arrays and 10 mm custom Beryllium drivers that deliver high-quality sound.
The MW07 Plus can play music or make phone calls on each earbud independently and the new Ambient Listening Mode feature allows users to tune into their surroundings for added awareness, while active noise-cancellation lessens background noise. Just like Apple’s AirPod Pro, the MW07 Plus comes with a variety of ear pads to ensure perfect fit – five sizes of ear tips and three sizes of patent-pending Fit Wings.
However, the most noticeable element of the MW07 Plus is the aesthetic appeal. The product is available in three striking core colorways – tortoiseshell, steel blue and white marble – as well as a Studio 35 x Kevin Durant special edition black quartz. These elegant buds are made with handcrafted acetate and come with that stainless steel charging case and a soft pouch storage. The MW07 Plus is available for $299.
If you’re willing to pay extra for a bit of ostentatious luxury branding, Master & Dynamic joined forces with Louis Vuitton to launch a new collection of Horizon Earphones featuring the fashion giant’s logo that are available in five acetate colors: bright red, pristine white, jet black, neon yellow and pink. These limited edition Louis Vuitton earbuds cost around $1,090.
