Master & Dynamic for 0.95 Signature Collection
We’re thrilled to announce we’ve partnered with Leica Camera to create the “Master & Dynamic for 0.95” signature collection.
The capsule collection of sound tools is inspired by the design of the world’s fastest aperture aspherical lens which reveals details that are hidden to the human eye: the Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. Included in the collection are reimagined MW60 Over-Ear Headphones, MH40 Over-Ear Headphones, ME05 Earphones, and the MP1000 headphone stand. All products will be available at participating Leica Stores globally, luxury online retail partner Mr Porter, starting May 11th, 2017. They’re also available for pre-order now on our website.
The black metal/black smooth grain cowhide headphones and black chrome over solid brass earphones feature the signature Leica red dot and the headphones have red acoustic mesh on the ear pads. Leica’s signature knurling is apparent throughout, as are the words “Developed in NYC. Reimagined in Wetzlar,” which are engraved inside the ear cup of the MW60 and MH40 in the company’s signature font.
“When I set out to create Master & Dynamic, I asked my team to think about our approach to headphones the same way revered premium brands I admire treat their products,” said our founder and CEO Jonathan Levine. “I’ve loved Leica’s aesthetic and craftsmanship for quite some time, so to be partnering with them on a design project within three years of the launch of Master & Dynamic is truly an honor. It’s amazing to see how many fans and enthusiasts we have in common.”
“Concentration on the essential is Leica Design’s guiding principle,” says Mark Shipard, Head of Design at Leica Camera AG. “At Leica we believe that ‘form follows function’ in all its consequences. This also means that all our products have to be of the highest standards in manufacturing and quality. Only if the product is close to perfection in its function can it develop these special aesthetics. This same standard we ask of our cooperation partners, too. In Master & Dynamic we found a partner which believes in these values equally. It was therefore an intuitive process to design this beautiful, high-quality series of headphones.”
Fueled by the human desire to explore new worlds of creativity, the Master & Dynamic for 0.95 collection merges the fine art of precision engineering with valuable materials, sophisticated design and detailed sound, to accompany you on your journey through life, whether you are traveling the globe or savoring the moments of everyday life.
