A minor upgrade that could benefit from extended battery life and functionality

from Laptop Magazine

The MH40 Wireless is not a full-on upgrade, at least not in our eyes. Certain flaws like the subdued bass, shorter-than-average battery life, and absent features will leave you wanting more, especially for $249.

The MH40 Wireless is not a full-on upgrade, at least not in our eyes. Certain flaws like the subdued bass, shorter-than-average battery life, and absent features will leave you wanting more, especially for $249. Models like the WH-1000xM3 offer personalized sound and noise cancellation for a little extra, but if you want wireless headphones with a singular look and spacious sound, the MH40 Wireless might be worth the look.

Beautiful, yet flawed

Unfortunately, the MH40 Wireless headphones are lacking in important ways that could cause many to pause. From poorly executed physical buttons to unfulfilled promised battery life, the MH40 Wireless headphones are disappointing on many levels. And yet, like all M&D products, they are also beautiful, comfortable, and no-doubt will be long-lasting.

Sound as good as the original MH40

from The Gadgeteer

Master & Dynamic’s MH40 wireless headphones are more comfortable, made just as well and sound as good as the original—but heavier—wired MH40s. Here’s the kicker, even though they are not cheap, the wireless MH40s are $100 less expensive than what the originals cost 5 years ago. Now, that’s progress!

The Master & Dynamic MH40 Wireless take all of the best parts of the original MH40s and make the package a whole lot sweeter for just $50 more.

As long as you’re not a big-bass addict, they’ll delight the senses and set you apart from the plastic-cans crowd.

Look and feel like $300, but don’t sound like it

from The Verge

If you’re someone who is seeking out the best sound and most complete feature set (why wouldn’t you be?) available in a pair of $300+ headphones, there are other options you should be looking at instead — namely the ones that I listed above: Sony’s WH-1000XM3, the Bose Noise Cancelling 70...More

If you’re someone who is seeking out the best sound and most complete feature set (why wouldn’t you be?) available in a pair of $300+ headphones, there are other options you should be looking at instead — namely the ones that I listed above: Sony’s WH-1000XM3, the Bose Noise Cancelling 700, or Beats Solo Pro. The way that Master & Dynamic’s wireless MH40 look is their biggest asset, and that’s only worth so much if there isn’t much else going on inside.

Back to what started it all

There is the issue that it lacks the USB-C to USB-C cable you might expect, and they don't have active noise cancelling as you might want. Yet otherwise, there simply isn't anything bad to say about this new wireless version of the MH40. They look great if you are into that rugged, industrial style. They have amazing build quality and, surely most important of all, the have fantastic sound. So if you want solid audio in a great looking unique set of headphones —or even if you are just a huge fan of Master & Dynamic —the MH40 are highly worth investing in.
