Master & Dynamic makes some really nice headphones, including the, an competitor, and the , which features new drivers and a new chipset that delivers improved sound and performance. However, they’re pricey, with the MH40 costing $399 and the MW75 running $599. That’s why I’m highlighting the company’s 30% off “friends and family sale” that’s activated when applying the code GIVEGET30 at checkout. The sale ends April 10.
I’m a fan of the MW75, which comes in multiple color options and is on our, but it’s out of most people’s price range. With that 30% discount, though, you get about $180 off, so you’re looking at $420. Meanwhile, the new MH40 gets a $120 price chop to $279.
All of Master & Dynamic’s headphones are well built (they’re sturdy) and have a unique retro-modern look. The MW75 does sound a little better than the new MH40 and features active noise canceling. But the MH40 sounds more refined than its predecessor, with support for the AAC and AptX audio codecs, and also has improved voice-calling performance. Additionally, you can plug its USB-C cable in to a computer or Android smartphone for a wired digital connection for high-resolution audio.
I like Master & Dynamic’s $299 MW08 earbuds, which are certainly more enticing at around $210 (with the 30% off code). But note that they’ve been out for a while and the MW09s may be on the horizon.
