The issue tends to be that speakers are too large, a laptop’s sound is too weak, and a quality pair of headphones are bulky or easy to break. But after years of trying one thing that led me to another approach, I ended up figuring out what works best for me. And that is packing a strong, yet versatile pair of headphones that are capable of reference quality audio, while possessing the build that can withstand the rigors of the road. As of late, for me, that pair is the MW50+ by Master & Dynamic.
M&D have married top quality materials with dynamic audio and creative design, with a vision that translates into making something grand that lasts. And from my experience, that’s a rare combination that constantly astounds me. I found the MW50+’s to have a fantastic, dynamic quality of sound that gives power to bass-heavy music, while also giving a crisp and clean sound to the highs that I look for in great headphones. For ease of use, I would give M&D a solid A grade, because the ergonomics of their headphones are simplistic but smart, and the ear pads feel soft and cushioned, even after hours of use. These headphones offer the ability to be wireless as well as isolated with their over-ear pads, and I love them for that versatility, especially when I’m traveling. Because I like to be free of wires when I explore natural areas and foreign cities, and even when I’m stuck on a bus for hours upon hours, I can be alone with my thoughts, with my music, and simply focus on the world outside my window.
