The new MH40 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones (£279) are the next generation of the brand’s beloved MH40 Headphones

[London, UK] November 13, 2019: New York-based premium audio brand, Master & Dynamic, is celebrating five years of exceptional sound tools with an evolution of its iconic MH40 Over-Ear Headphones, the long-awaited MH40 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones.

Staying true to the company’s very first headphone design - the wired MH40 - the new wireless edition features the same vintage aviator-inspired aesthetic and rich, warm sound.

“The MH40 was the first product we designed at Master & Dynamic and I remember that moment in the brand’s history very well. That iconic pair of headphones became the backbone of our product DNA and has influenced every product to come after it,” said Master & Dynamic Founder & CEO Jonathan Levine.

The new wireless model will feature Bluetooth 5.0 with a 100ft/30m connectivity range. Lightweight yet durable, the MH40 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones will also feature coated canvas with lambskin leather details, hold up to 18 hours of battery life and charge to 50% in 30 minutes.

“With the MH40 Wireless, we wanted to celebrate five years of Master & Dynamic’s core philosophy - the convergence of design, craftsmanship and technology,” said Mr. Levine.

Since the company’s founding, travel has been a significant part of the brand’s DNA. The original wired MH40 has often been a travel companion for customers in the past, whether to new destinations or on their daily commutes. Each pair of the original MH40 headphones feature coordinates of Grand Central Station, the iconic New York City landmark, etched under the left ear pad.

To celebrate Master & Dynamic’s five-year anniversary, the new MH40 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones take it global. Each pair features the coordinates of one of ten cultural hotspots from around the world on the outer earcup. Each location is not only beaming with musical, artistic and cultural inspiration, but also has meaning to the brand and its founders.


“Jonathan, myself and our children are passionate about travel: the places we discover and of course, the headphones we bring along. With the Coordinates blog series, our goal is to capture and share with readers the joy in travel and build excitement and anticipation for every trip,” said Master & Dynamic Co-Founder Vicki Gross.

Customers can learn more about the coordinates on their headphones by visiting the company’s blog, The 10,000, at A corresponding blog post for each of the initial ten cities - Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, London, Lisbon, Hong Kong, Kyoto, Shanghai, Stockholm and New York City - will explore the cultural and historical must-sees in each destination.

The MH40 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones are available in Gunmetal / Black Coated Canvas & Lambskin, Black Metal / Black Coated Canvas & Lambskin and Silver Metal / Brown Coated Canvas & Lambskin for £279. MH40 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones are available now exclusively at
