When gamers get serious about their gear, companies tend to take notice. Master & Dynamic has definitely entered the fray of providing the best audio equipment to the gaming market with their new wireless MG20. The new headset marks Master & Dynamic’s first foray into gaming, and all indications point to this being a very successful venture for them.
“We knew the time was right to create a luxury gaming headset,” says Master & Dynamic CEO Jonathan Levine. “Our goal with the MG20 was to deliver the exceptional sound and design that Master and Dynamic is known for. The MG20 will satisfy both the professional and the recreational gamer looking for technical performance, sophisticated style and high-quality materials.”
The wireless MG20 gaming headphones feature high-grade magnesium, lambskin leather, and Alcantara as materials used for construction. Anodized aluminium was used for the arms, keeping the weight down. The headset also features a detachable boom microphone and an onboard microphone array to ensure the best video calls. Oversized 50mm beryllium drivers create the kind of quality sound that most headphones can only dream of.
Those acoustics come in 7.1 surround sound and the headphones support Qualcomm’s aptX HD audio codec, so even when you’re not gaming you’ll still get beautiful sound. To help ensure that sound and visuals stay in sync, the headphones use aptX Low-Latency codec. You can use the Connect app to select equalizer presets and to choose different sound profiles as well. On a full battery, you’ll get 22 hours of play.
If you’re a discerning gamer, or if you just want a set of headphones that will give you the best acoustics, then theMaster & Dynamic MG20 Wireless gaming headphones should be toward the top of your list for consideration. And for a price of €449 (AUD$700), you’ll be happy about the investment into quality that you made.
