Going wireless has been the mantra for quite some time now among device manufacturers, and it makes perfect sense. Wireless charging gets rid of having to tote around a pesky cable, while having a pair of wireless earphones allows you to move about freely while enjoying your music without missing a beat. While there are numerous models to pick from in the market, premium audio company Master & Dynamic decided to up the ante with its classy MW07 True Wireless Earphones.
I am not quite sure how one can define a pair of these as being “true” wireless headphones, but perhaps this is just a marketing stance taken by the company. What we do know is this: you will need to fork out a rather hefty sum to the tune of $299. Available in four initial colorways: Tortoiseshell, Steel Blue, Grey Terrazzo, and Matte Black, each individual pair of MW07’s will be accompanied by an elegant stainless steel charging case. Made up of premium materials such as handcrafted acetate and stainless steel in addition to 10mm Beryllium drivers, brings together both high tech and high design.
Audiophiles will fall in love with the couple of patent-pending technologies that ensure best-in-class Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, superior comfort and a personalized fit. Despite carrying all of these within, they are stored in a slim, close to the ear form factor for a sleek looking design. The custom 10mm beryllium drivers used happens to be a kind of metal that is traditionally used only in hi-fi products, while optical sensors detect in-ear placement in order to figure out whether to play sound or pause when the earphones are removed from the user’s ears.
In addition, the presence of an innovative, detachable silicone “fit wing” that will arrive in a couple of sizes, apart from five ear tip sizes, will ensure the earphones can be comfortably and securely fitted to any ear. All that it takes is a single gesture to place the MW07 in the ear from its case. Capable of up to 3.5 hours of battery life with a full charge, the elegant hand-polished stainless-steel charging case carries another extra 10.5 hours of listening time.
