Master and Dynamic’s MH40 Returns Without Cables

Master & Dynamic has revived its MH40 headphones but cut the cables.   

Birthdays are a great excuse to celebrate with something a little different. So, to mark Master & Dynamic's fifth anniversary, they have reissued its iconic MH40 over-ear headphones in a wireless format.

The new MH40 Wireless (£279) is the latest evolution of the brand's over-ear cans and retains the vintage aviator-inspired aesthetic with canvas and lambskin details. 

The new model features Bluetooth 5.0 and boasts 18 hours of battery life. Moreover, we're promised an empty to 50% charge in 30 minutes and 100% in 80, via USB-C.

Additionally, you get 40mm neodymium drivers, a quoted 32 ohms impedance and microphones for hands-free calls.

Master & Dynamic Founder & CEO Jonathan Levine told StereoNET

The MH40 was the first product we designed at Master & Dynamic, and I remember that moment in the brand's history very well. That iconic pair of headphones became the backbone of our product DNA and has influenced every product to come after it.
