Master & Dynamic have announced today that they are partnering up with the luxury optic brand Leica Camera to create a brand new line of premium headphones.
The headphones are re-imagined from previous Master & Dynamic products such as the MW60 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones ($549), the MH40 Over-Ear Headphones ($399), the ME05 Earphones ($199) and the MP1000 Headphone Stand ($59).
Check out the brand new trailer for the headphones down below:
Master & Dynamic has partnered with Leica Camera AG to create a capsule collection of sound tools inspired by the design of the world’s fastest aspherical lens – the legendary Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH. The MW60B-95 is appointed with custom smooth cowhide and stainless steel componentry. The red acoustic mesh of the lambskin ear pads, signature red glass dot, knurling and custom etching pay homage to Leica’s iconic design.
“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.”
Master & Dynamic for 0.95 Signature Headphone collection is now available to purchase, however, the product wont ship until May 11. Are you in need of premium headphones? Let us know in the comments how you feel about the newly announced headphones down below!
