The MW08s will be available on March 30 for $ 300. They bring notable new features compared to the MW07 Plus: other materials, active noise reduction and an app.
They had not given any news since 2019 their MW07 Plus. Master & Dynamic confirms its interest in wireless headphones by announcing the MW08. The audio product company will release its new wireless headphones on March 30. They will logically take the continuation of the MW07 Plus, and will be negotiated at 300 dollars, or the equivalent of 250 euros.
For the record, it was already the price of MW07s at their launch. These will continue to be manufactured, and will be sold for 250 dollars, or about 210 euros, by the end of March.
What does this new model bring? According to Engadget, a few elements modify this design compared to its predecessor: new materials, hybrid active noise reduction, a “Ambient sound” and slightly larger transducers.
On the hardware side, the most visible change, where the old model was based on an acetate shell, the MW08 is based on ceramic and an aluminum strip that houses the antenna. We are not going to lie to each other, this choice and the visual we received seem to correspond to the fairly high-end positioning of the brand. On top of that, the MW08 would be slightly smaller than its predecessor.
To control what goes through their ears, the user has access to a multifunction button on the right earcup, which allows to pause, change songs, access pairing mode and voice assistant. On the left side, on the same principle, a button is used to manage ambient sounds and active noise reduction.
Active noise reduction, but also hybrid
Second big change from the old model: hybrid active noise reduction. Concretely, two modes will be available: the Max to reduce as much as possible, and that for “everyday life”. Same principle for the “ambient sound” mode, available in two modes: voice or consciousness, to adapt to what surrounds the user.
The third innovation is based on the software: Master and Dynamic accompanies its product with an application, which gives the battery level and which also allows the choice of active noise reduction or ambient sound reduction modes.
Speaking of battery level, the company announces twelve hours of autonomy, to which can be added 30 hours thanks to the stainless steel box supplied with the headphones. Also according to the manufacturer, the fast charge should allow to reach 50% of battery in 15 minutes, and a fully charged battery in 45 minutes.
The MW08s will be available in four colors: black, white, blue and brown. For now,
