We featured some earbuds from Master & Dynamic a few weeks back and the outcome was an extremely impressive sound quality packed into a pair of stylish buds. From the experience there, it may appear as if the brand has a focus on smaller headphones. That is so far from the truth – the Master and Dynamic MH-40 packs an incredibly powerful punch into a pair of noise-cancelling, over ear headphones, and the styling may be even better than we saw with the earbuds.
The MH-40 Over Ear Headphones are designed to serve as a “modern thinking cap.” And when you put these on, it starts to make sense. The incredible sound quality and noise cancellation provides each listener the ability to focus and tune out the outside noise. Designed for decades of use, the headphones are built to last and it shows up easily when you put them on. I’ve probably never worn a sturdier pair of over ear headphones in my life. The headphones feature premium cowhide on the headband exterior surface and earcup insets, in addition to some extremely soft lambskin on the interior and ear pads. With additional steel components, the headphones are borderline a fashion item. And last but not least, the sound is incredible, with the 45mm Neodymium high-performance drivers providing a listening experience for the ages.
