New York–based, fashion-forward company Master & Dynamic makes headphones that make audiophiles drool. Its audio products have a distinctive, mid-20th-century retro vibe and sound even better than they look. Unfortunately, the headphones are often priced accordingly.
But this week the company is holding a Family and Friends sale. Through April 19, you can take 25 percent off sitewide with code BFF25. The sale excludes its latest noise-canceling pair, the MW08, as well as any gift cards, gift wrap, or monogramming. But it does include many audio products we’ve tried and loved over the years. If you’re looking for a spring upgrade to your work-from-home setup or need a suspiciously well-timed Mother’s Day gift, we have several recommendations below.
And if these slick, expensive cans are still more money than you’d like to spend, we have you covered. Check out our picks for the Best Wireless Headphones, the Best Wireless Workout Buds, and the Best Cheap Headphones.
Master & Dynamic MW07 Go
WIRED audio reviewer Parker Hall and I have tried these beautiful wireless workout buds (9/10, WIRED Recommends). I recently removed them from our workout buds roundup in favor of some newer options, but these are still compact, attractive, and incredibly comfortable, with the fantastic sound that Master & Dynamic is known for.
The low profile also means they don’t bounce out of your ear during long runs. The buds don’t have active noise-canceling, but the great fit results in pretty effective passive noise-canceling. If you do need noise-canceling, the MW07 Plus are slightly larger and bulkier, but they have some of the best noise-canceling Hall has ever tried on wireless buds.
