Steel the Show
Swish, high-performance headphones made with a famous camera maker
Founded in 2013, Master & Dynamic is a New York-based audio company that just teamed up with the German powerhouse Leica Camera to create a trio of ‘0.95’-inspired headphones that pay homage to Leica’s Noctilux-m 50mm f/0.95 ASPH – the world’s fastest aspherical lens. Our favourites are the over-the-ear MW60 Bluetooth headphones, which offer some shockingly good sound quality. They also look amazing, crafted as they are in stainless steel and forged aluminium, with premium cowhide on the headband and supple lambskin on the earpads. You can tell every detail has been studied all the way down to the little logo on side, which isn’t plastic, or even cast metal. It’s die-struck brass with an enamel fill, coated with palladium. Reason enough then to fork out 550 USD.
