We’ve sung the praises of Master & Dynamic many times — “the best looking headphones you can own” to be exact — and their MH40 still shines years later. A rich, warm sound, yes, but also beautiful on the outside: Forged aluminum body. Stainless steel components. Earpads that swivel on hinges. And comfy memory foam/lambskin ear pads that nicely isolate noise without blocking out your environment.
Admittedly, we’ve switched over to the in-ear MW07 wireless for our travels, but the MH40s are perfect for your desk and they’re currently $199 and change on Amazon, or a whopping 50% off. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen ever, and even $20 less than B&H’s current very good deal. One caveat: We have no idea how long this'll last.
