Master & Dynamic is a familiar name on THL. Few would argue that the New York-based brand offers some of the most beautifully formed and constructed headphones on the market. Expanding upon this is their latest headphone, the MG20, the company’s first gaming-focused model. The MG20 is a wireless headphone with the same premium BOM as seen on their former designs.
This means buyers receive an over-ear design, magnesium shell, lambskin leather pads in addition to an Alcantara headband. It features a detachable boom microphone allowing the headphone to be used for portable listening too. As it has an additional onboard mic array, it supports calls both with and without the attachment. A hefty 22hr battery runtime rating keeps things going during even the longest gaming sessions.
On the audio side, things have not been neglected either. It sports 50mm Beryllium-plated drivers and Qualcomm aptX HD for low-latency, high-quality wireless streaming. On devices not supporting this codec, a low-latency USB-A wireless adaptor is also provided, offering seamless wireless compatibility with consoles and PCs. The M&D Connect app makes a return and now introduces multiple sound profiles. The headphones are semi-open back with angled ear cups, promising the most lifelike soundstage from an M&D headphone yet.
The MG20 is available from Master & Dynamic as of the 16th of November at an RRP of $449 USD.
