Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

based on the following sites

PROS

  • The MW60 headphones sport a leather and metal construction that is truly high-end and a sophisticated design that looks elegant.
  • Sound quality was rated as excellent by most reviewers, even when using the Bluetooth connection.
  • The aluminum antenna design allows for a stronger signal and connection over Bluetooth.

CONS

  • At $549, the MW60 Wireless Headphones are expensive.
  • The headband may not be comfortable for all users.
  • The headphones may feel heavy to some users.
Master & Dynamic’s products are known for their elegant, high-end design, and the MW60 Wireless Headphones are no exception. These Bluetooth headphones make a serious fashion statement--and they should, considering their price tag. Top-notch sound quality, even over a Bluetooth connection, helps justify that price tag, as do the leather and metal design, memory foam earpads, and fabric-wrapped cords, which resist tangles and let you use a wired connection to non-Bluetooth devices.

The box that the headphones came in is less like a box, more like a secret agent briefcase complete with combination locking system. It’s a travel case made in partnership with the brand Zero Halliburton and if you want to feel extra cool, it’ll cost you a few bucks more at the point of purchase.

Ultimately, I enjoy wearing the MW60 the most as they provide that extra special feeling of superior craftsmanship. And for that reason will recommend them if only because they're the only wireless over-ear headphones out there that we think sound great but are also made out of top notch materials.

If you want some headphones for home listening, and value a huge, warm sound over subtlety, the Master & Dynamic MH40 are well worth a listen. They're so eye-catching that you could even just leave them on the coffee table as a talking point.

Cast out of aluminium and finished in pillow-soft lambskin leather, the MW60s are as much a fashion statement as they are a functional piece of audio equipment. They even smell expensive when you take them out of the box.

The MW60s are special. They are very simple to use, beautiful, stylish, solidly made and yield audiophile quality sound wirelessly, while at the same time still allowing a hardwired connection for very fine systems and higher resolutions. Are they worth the extra $150 over the MH40s? Easily. Very highly recommended

The MW60s are the perfect wireless headphones for the digital age. Are they worth $549? Well it depends on how much you value perfection. But make no mistake, the bar has been raised in this vertical and it’s going to take a lot to topple Master & Dynamic’s entry into the space.

Although there’s one thing that most audiophiles might feel the MW60’s lack is noise cancellation. A lot of people, especially frequent travelers encourage noise cancelling headphones, especially at the price, but with the audio I received from the headphones themselves (without the feature) it was a complete oversight ...
