The audiophiles among us already know to value a great pair of cans for decades, but in today’s office-life a good pair of headphones is close to becoming an essential. The new headphone-makers of Master & Dynamic see headphones as modern thinking caps and thus they conceived the MH40, the work-enhancing answer for the office. We all know, isolated gray noise helps you keeping your focus, but the MH40s are also designed to lock in the sound and engineered to last. To this end, these headphones feature stainless steel and forged aluminum throughout as also soft lambskin wrapped around the headband and the removable memory foam ear pads. Sound-wise the 45mm neodymium drivers of this headphones are tuned for a warm sound, means a balanced mid-to-low range with a punchy bass but less highs and a closer soundstage. The MH40s are available in either the brown-silver color blend or in an all-black version and come shipped with a 3.5-6.3mm adaoter, a 1.45m remote and microphone cable, an additional 2m woven cable, a canvas case and a leather cable box.
