In terms of design, Master & Dynamic have been killing it as of late, having recently taken the wrap off a set of speakers made out of concrete. However it looks like they’re not quite done. The company has recently announced that they have teamed up with Leica who will be helping them redesign some of their signature headphone models.
We know it is an interesting decision for a headphone company to team up with a camera company, but to be fair Leica’s cameras have typically been well-designed, so it is refreshing to see them take on something else other than a camera. The new designs will be applied to Master & Dynamic’s MW60, MH40, and ME05 headphones, as well as a black steel MP1000 headphone stand.
These aren’t new headphones but like we said, redesigned existing models so if you like what you hear, then we guess the changes will be mostly on the outside. The MW60 and MH40 over-ear models will feature a Leica red shade, and a black-and-red color scheme. There will also be ridges on the ear cups that are supposed to mimic the ridges on the Leica lenses.
Now the good news is that the pricing of these headphones hasn’t changed from the original. They weren’t exactly cheap to begin with, but thankfully the Leica-aided design did not tack on additional costs. The MW60s will be priced at $549, the MH40s at $399, the in-ears ME05s at $199, and the MP1000 stand will set you back $59.
