Vintage Design Meets Hi-Fi Technology in the Master & Dynamic x Oliver Peoples Collection

Vintage Design Meets Hi-Fi Technology in the Master & Dynamic x Oliver Peoples Collection

We are excited to announce our limited-edition collection with Los Angeles-based eyewear brand Oliver Peoples. The collection features three custom Oliver Peoples acetates – made by world-renowned, Italian manufacturer, Mazzucchelli – used on limited-editions of the OP-505 sunglasses and Master & Dynamic’s MW65 Active Noise-Cancelling Wireless Headphones and MW07 PLUS True Wireless Earphones.  

Master & Dynamic for Oliver Peoples features limited-edition colors crafted using Mazzucchelli 1849 acetate

The pairing was a seamless fit given that both brands look to vintage aesthetics for inspiration and aim to create products that stand the test of time. Master & Dynamic Founder and CEO Jonathan Levine was initially inspired to launch headphones after seeing a pair of WWII aviator headphones in a museum and for Oliver Peoples, inspiration came from vintage eyewear found in an estate collection. “Luxury eyewear has always been a big inspiration to us at Master & Dynamic,” says Levine. “I first discovered Oliver Peoples in the mid-90’s and have been a fan since then. As a collector of vintage items as well as eyewear, their designs really caught my attention. Some 20 pairs of Oliver Peoples sunglasses and eyeglasses later, it is a true personal honor and professional privilege to collaborate with the brand.” 

Oliver Peoples Creative Director Giampiero Tagliaferri says, “For us, collaborations are a thoughtful opportunity to extend the brand. On the surface, pairing in the audio space for the first time could sound like a risk. Yet, working with Master & Dynamic was an effortless design process. With our shared focus on vintage aesthetics, the blending of optical and audio came together naturally. This limited-edition collection is truly a special one, as it will be the first time Oliver Peoples’ iconic, custom acetates have appeared on anything besides eyewear.”

The MW65 Active Noise-Cancelling Wireless Headphones feature lightweight aluminum alongside fine leathers and for the first time, include custom acetate details.  The MW65 headphones offer two active noise-cancelling modes to tailor sound to specific surroundings for a clear, balanced listening experience without compromising sound quality.  In addition, custom 40mm Beryllium drivers deliver Master & Dynamic’s signature rich, warm sound that captures the detail of well-recorded music.

The MW07 PLUS True Wireless Earphones are the most technically advanced earphones offered by Master & Dynamic. They feature a custom handcrafted acetate body and include a sleek, stainless steel charging case to match.  The MW07 PLUS include an unparalleled 40 hours of total playtime with 10 hours of battery life and 3 additional charges in the case and Bluetooth 5.0 with 30m/100ft connection range. With dual beamforming noise reduction mic arrays, the headphones provide best-in-class talk performance with 10mm custom Beryllium drivers to deliver overall exceptional sound.  

The MW07 PLUS Earphones are available in LBR/Stainless Steel Case, Bordeaux Bark/Gunmetal Case, and DTBK/Black Case, and will retail for $299. MW65 Headphones are available in Silver Metal/Cognac Leather/LBR, Gunmetal/Bordeaux Leather/ Bordeaux Bark, and Black Metal/Black Leather/DTBK, and will retail for $499.
