Leica Helped Create Some Headphones and They’re Gorgeous
If you’re a camera geek and an audiophile, your dream headphones have arrived. NYC’s Master & Dynamic partnered with iconic camera manufacturer Leica for a “Developed in NYC, Reimagined in Wetzlar” collaboration on two headphones, one pair of earbuds and a stand.
The series gives a visual nod to the Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH lens, which Leica claims is “the world’s fastest aspherical lens.” This manifests itself in a small red dot, black smooth-grain cowhide (on the over-ear headphones) and touches of Leica’s signature knurling. It’s subtle — and that’s a good thing. Those in the know will know, the rest will simply lust after the cool black headphones on your head labeled “0.95.”
Available on Masterdynamic.com. Pricing: MW60 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones ($549), MH40 Over-Ear Headphones ($399), ME05 Earphones ($199) and MP1000 Headphone Stand ($59)
