MW50 Headphones Selected as 2017 CES Innovation Awards Honoree
We’re excited to announce that our MW50 Wireless On-Ear Headphones, released last week, have been selected as a 2017 Consumer Electronics Show Innovation Awards Honoree.
Products that enter the CES Innovation Awards are judged by a panel of independent industrial designers, engineers, and members of the trade media. The awards honor outstanding engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, taking into account function and user value in cutting edge consumer electronics products across twenty-eight categories.
Among the MW50’s key features is a patent-pending external antenna, which is capable of three times the industry standard range, much like the antenna of the MW60 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones, WIRED’s top wireless headphone pick for 2015. The MW50 is one-third lighter than its over-ear counterpart and folds flat, allowing for greater portability. Beryllium drivers provide superior acoustics and a rich, detailed and expansive sound profile.
Intended to be an amazing sonic and aesthetic experience while on-the-go, the MW50 employs a microphone array located on the left ear cup to reject unwanted noise and ensure that nothing is lost during phone calls. The sixteen-hour battery life gives users the ability to listen to their favorite music for the duration of a flight from New York City to Hong Kong. The battery, which is quickly charged via a USB-C port, can be bypassed by connecting directly to an audio device with the included heavy duty woven cable.
Like all Master & Dynamic products, our MW50 On-Ear Headphones are built for decades of use and made with the finest materials including aluminum, stainless steel and cowhide and lambskin.
Our MW50 Headphones will be on display at the Consumer Electronics Show at the Venetian in Las Vegas from January 5th-8th, 2017, and are available here for $449.
