Almost exactly a year ago, Master & Dynamic debuted its first wireless headphones with the over-ear MW60. Today, the company is adding to that product line with the on-ear MW50. This new model carries a similar look to last year's arrival with plenty of silver aluminum and your choice of black or brown leather. The MW50's ear cups are a bit rounder than the MW60, but that's really the only difference in design other than how you wear them.

The company says the MW50 is one-third lighter than last year's MW60, weighing in at 240 grams or about half a pound. Inside, 40mm beryllium drivers deliver M&D's signature sound to lambskin-wrapped memory foam ear pads. The MW50's connect to your device of choice via Bluetooth 4.1 with aptX and the company is promising 16 hours of battery life before you'll either have to recharge or employ a 3.5mm cable to continue listening. If you need to take a call, dual microphones are on board to assist when they're not being used to block out noise.

Like the MW60, you'll have to make a significant investment to nab a pair of these stylish headphones. The new MW50s are priced at $449 and are available now from the Master & Dynamic website. For reference, that's $100 more than Bose's QuietComfort 35. Of course, you'll need to be willing to ditch the premium materials for something that looks much more generic.
