Master & Dynamic's MW65 ANC Wireless over-ear headphones are their lightest ever

We never rush our products. We waited until we could launch an ANC product that was acoustically stunning. Through vigorous research we were able to develop an amazing ANC technology that did not compromise our signature acoustics, which is a commonly known issue with ANC.

– Jonathan Levine, Master & Dynamic’s Founder and CEO

The over-ear MW65 features two active noise-cancelling modes – high and low – to best fit your surroundings. It uses two beamforming noise-cancelling microphone arrays to capture, analyze, and cancel out unwanted environmental noise through a combination of feed-forward and feed-back hybrid noise-cancelling.

Meanwhile, custom 40mm Beryllium drivers help to preserve the Master & Dynamic signature sound, so you get the same experience with ANC on as you do when you have it off. Made of anodized aluminum, the headphones weigh just 250g, while having being durable and scratch resistant. The use of heavy grain leathers and supple lambskin-wrapped memory foam ear pads  also make for a luxurious listening experience.

Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity allows the headphones a pairing range of 20m, with a listening time of 24hrs on a single charge. The MW65 also has a handy quick-charge feature that takes you to 50% charge in just 5 minutes, ensuring that the headphones are ready to go whenever you are. It’s also optimized for Google Assistant, so you can pull on anything from Google Play Music to Google Maps just with your voice.

The MW65 accessories include the soft protective canvas carrying case with zippered pouch, a flight adaptor, 3.5mm audio cable for use with the optional wired port, and both a USB-C charging cable and USB adaptor. It comes in a choice of Brown Leather with Silver Metal and Black Leather with Gunmetal, and is available now for S$759 at all authorized retailers, while it looks like Lazada's offering them at a discounted price of S$721.
