Battery life is on par with other high-end noise-cancelling headphones at 32 hours, and the headphones come with a USB-C cable inside the hard shell that lets them plug into a computer or phone and act like their own. a high-quality digital-to-analog converter—perfect for those who like to listen to high-quality music on the go. If you don’t have a USB port, there’s also a 3.5-mm jack for passive listening and a quarter-inch adapter for head amps and other high-end sources. It’s two-way wired, and one-way wireless, listening to the MW75, which is great.
The 40-mm beryllium drivers inside the MW75 combine with Master & Dynamic digital conversion to deliver one of the clearest and most immersive sound I’ve ever heard from a pair of wireless headphones.
I thought the AirPods Max sounded better, but somehow they beat their best reproduction, with the MW75 delivering a rich sound that feels like you could bathe in it. The bass in particular stands out above many other options in this category, with a clear, well-balanced sound that doesn’t interfere with the water to sound above them. If you like bass-heavy music, this is a sound canvas to listen to again, written like 99.9% of Kaytranada comes across as it has never done to me on the sound-reduced versions before.
Then again, everything sounds great through these headphones. I like to listen to jazz, classical, folk, and other music through them because the high-quality vocals provide a sense of direction, making the digital-to-analog sound like the instruments are in your ears.
The M&D Connect software allows you to adjust the noise canceling and surround sound levels, as well as mess with the EQ, but I found these headphones to sound great with the noise canceling and the EQ set, as you’d expect most people to leave. they out of the box. That said, the surround mode can come in handy on a plane ride or when you want to quickly chat with a loved one, pet, or co-worker (or a combo thereof).
Noise canceling is excellent, and the headphones easily control the sounds of my HVAC system and my loud keyboard. I’d say it’s as good as I’ve heard from any high-end speaker recently, although the Sony and Bose may surpass this when it comes to mid-range noise reduction. Sometimes I hear the 600-hz whine of my air filter through the Master & Dynamic algorithm. Likewise, the onboard mics are good, just not as good as those from Apple and Bose. They are still used on mobile phones.
The only problem in oil is that the MW75 has low noise canceling all the time, it’s just audible to me without playing. It reminds me of the low end tape that plays when I record on analog equipment. I’m a stickler for low volume, and it doesn’t bother me (I black out as soon as I hear every song), but if you’re the type of person who doesn’t need any noise at all, I’d recommend another one. two.
Overall, I’ve really enjoyed my time with the MW75 and would recommend it to any high-roller and audiophile that just wants to hear the same. The sound quality is so good that I can forgive a bit of muting when nothing is playing, and the fact that you can listen to them in so many ways—wired or wireless, or without an external digital-to-analog converter—is great. If you like bells and whistles, especially how they sound so faithfully, this is a great pair.
