Engadget Review

Master & Dynamic took its time to deliver a set of noise-cancelling headphones, and the wait was well worth it. They have a more refined design than most of the competition, but the MW65 are expensive. Even though the premium materials and stellar sound are better than many of M&D’s rivals, the price tag is hard to overlook.
