October 28, 2019 Briefings By

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at .


It seems like most wireless earphones have some sort of compromise: low battery life, bulky appearance, or less-than-stellar sound. With the release of Master & Dynamic’s MW07 Plus True Wireless Earphones however, we’re finally seeing the best possible listening experience in a robust wireless package. The MW07s have the full range of Master & Dynamic’s signature sound with active noise canceling as well as an ambient listening mode. The unique design is built for durability with acetate and stainless steel, and they come in four beautiful finish options. The battery boasts an impressive 10 hours of playtime, and you can bring the case along for an additional 3 charges; that’s 40 hours of total playtime. If you’re looking for the whole wireless package and then some, these deserve your consideration.
