Purveyor of high-quality sound Master & Dynamic has partnered with tattoo artist Scott Campbell for an exclusive collection of its flagship MW60 and MH40 headphones to celebrate Valentine’s Day and all things related to love.
The Scott Campbell for Master & Dynamic Collection features fresh black metal frames with black or white leather cushioning and Campbell’s signature snake artwork. The headphones also feature the famed bicoastal tattoo and artist’s quotation “The smartest things I ever did were stupid things for love” on the earpad.
It was a mutual appreciation for taking risks that formed the basis of this collaboration. “I have always thought Scott’s work was quite genius,” says Master & Dynamic’s Founder and CEO Jonathan Levine. “When I met Scott in Hong Kong, I learned we shared a willingness to take risks in pursuit of our dreams, even if it means sometimes making mistakes.”
That may be so, although there’s no mistaking just how stylish these monochrome headphones are. The Scott Campbell for Master & Dynamic Collection does not upgrade the internal tech because it doesn’t need to.
Instead, the limited edition MH40s feature the same powerful 45mm neodymium drivers as their standard counterparts – Also Wired previously described the MW60 as the “best wireless headphones” on the market.
What’s peculiar is the Scott Campbell for Master & Dynamic Collection is explicitly released to spread the love of Valentine’s Day.
“I love love, and I believe in making love the utmost priority, and absolutely the smartest things I’ve ever done in my life were stupid things for love,” says Scott Campbell. “Anytime I have told the rational side of me to take the backseat and handed the steering wheel to my instincts and passions, they’ve always steered me in the right direction.”
We’re still not convinced snakes are a romantic gesture, not when there are puppies and kittens to consider, but each to their own. The limited edition Scott Campbell for Master & Dynamic Collection is available now. The wireless MW60s go for US $549, while the MH40s are US $399.
