MH40 Headphones - Master and Dynamic

Thinking Caps


New York’s Master and Dynamic have achieved the impossible. Nicknamed the thinking cap, these award-winning, over-ear headphones combine aesthetics, durability and superior audio engineering so that, for the first time ever, style is longer a trade-off for sound quality. These heavy grain leather and aluminium headphones with forged steel components have been celebrated for performing even better than they look, and lock in sound with detachable, almost-airtight lambskin memory foam ear pads built specifically to encourage wearers to escape to their own private world. 

More Info

With 45mm neodymium drivers tuned for the mid-range and low-end, their circum-aural, omni-directional sound has been described as “reminiscent of a live concert hall” (Bloomberg), “punchy and intimate” (Headfonia), and, perhaps most revealingly, “killer” (Forbes). A built-in mute button, microphone capabilities and optional custom-designed stand make these a natural desk accessory, though the headphones come replete with a leather cable box and canvas headset bag for stylish travel. In their continual pursuit of aesthetic and audio perfection, Master and Dynamic have created the Federer of headphones – and they play accordingly.

Master and Dynamic

When it came to building headphones for the creative class, Master and Dynamic’s founder Jonathan Levine eschewed focus groups and instead relied on his son’s feedback and his own fanatical obsession with materials in order to create technology that gives people their own space. Recognising that music is the calayst for culture, the Master & Dynamic HQ in New York now incorporates a sound studio which is open to anybody, free of charge.
