Now you’re used to full functionality, full mobility and the ability to walk wherever and whenever with the ease of wireless technology. However, it doesn’t really matter how highly you rate your current wireless headphones, as in comparison to these Master & Dynamic MW50 Wireless Headphones they’re probably underachieving. Here us out. Here’s why. The MW50s “form-meets-function” exposed all-aluminium antenna provides best-in-class signal range. The exclusive drivers use beryllium for superior acoustics and the ear cups fold flat for portability and comfort. Compact and one-third lighter weight than Master & Dynamic's MW60s, Master & Dynamic's MW50s are the perfect wireless headphones for home, office or travel. Everything you want and need, basically.
