New York City-based premium audio company Master & Dynamic seem to be going from strength to strength, and its latest partnership, announced today, with like-minded premium camera company Leica Camera and their high-end accessories brand 0.95 cements that theory. The two brands have created the “Master & Dynamic for 0.95” signature collection of two headphones, an earphone and a headphone stand inspired by the design of the legendary and world’s fastest aperture aspherical lens: The Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH.
The headphones and earphone all feature the iconic red marker known from Leica’s legendary lenses; both of the custom headphones are covered in black smooth grain cowhide and also feature the aforementioned red color on the ear pads’ acoustic mesh. Leica’s signature knurling is apparent throughout, as are the words “Developed in NYC. Reimagined in Wetzlar” which are engraved inside the ear cup of the MW60 and MH40 in the company’s signature font.
The “Master & Dynamic for 0.95” collection pricing includes a number of Master & Dynamic’s core products: the black metal/black leather MW60 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones (£499), black metal/black leather MH40 Over-Ear Headphones (£369), black PVD-coated brass ME05 Earphones (£179) and black steel MP1000 Headphone Stand (£49).
All four “sound tools” will initially be available at participating Leica Stores/ boutiques globally, masterdynamic.co.uk and select key retail partners starting May 11th, 2017.
