Do you know about Master & Dynamic? Well, you should. Because we wrote about their first headphones early last year. Discovering the brand was to us a revelation, in the cluttered world of discrete audio listening. Since, we’ve been ignoring trends, dismissing techy looking rapper-owned headsets and have remained partial to Master & Dynamic, if anything for their use of buttery leather, sleek design and most importantly for the impeccable clarity of sound afforded by their products.
Since we first found out about the brand, they’ve expanded their offerings into wireless headphones (get with the program guys, it’s the future!) and colored earpads so that you can mix and match to your heart’s delight. Since they’re an investment piece, it only makes sense that they’ve taken this step which allows you to create a pair of headphones that is a true expression of your personality.
But now our plan to own their entire range just got a lot more complicated!
I’ve been taking advantage of the mild London temperatures and walking a lot in the morning. Of course, having a good selection of songs to listen to is essential to start the day off right. But having the right sound is equally as crucial. iPhone buds just aren’t cutting it when you’re truly into your music. At the same time, if you’re going to use your headphones on the go, take them to work, on the subway, to the gym, you need a pair that’s compact.
That’s the point of Master & Dynamic’s MH30. They are smaller that the MH40 (that we told you about last year) but they also fold inwards, which makes them very easy to put away in your work bag. Quite the perfect on-the-go alternative! And even though they’re smaller that the brand’s originals, the sound quality is stellar and they are very comfy thanks to the cushioned lambskin ear pads.
The MH30 are available here. And you should check out this page if you’d like to learn more about the brand and their design philosophy.
