Aesthetic sound tools: Leica Camera and Master & Dynamic create premium headphones for the ‘0.95’ brand accessories collection
Exceptional imaging performance meets exquisite audio quality: Leica Camera AG has been able to gain Master & Dynamic, the US-American manufacturer of premium headphones and audio accessories, as a partner for the ‘0.95’ brand. With ‘Master & Dynamic for 0.95’, the New York based manufacturer has collaborated with Leica on the creation of a range of three attractive pairs of headphones that fulfill even the highest expectations with regard to audio quality and aesthetic design. All products of the collection feature the ‘0.95’ logo and are manufactured with premium materials such as soft and supple cowhide leather and components made of stainless steel. The refined red acoustic mesh and the ‘Designed with Leica Camera AG’ engraving underline the collaboration which went into this creative joint venture. Smallest details, such as the knurling known of the dials of the camera controls and the signature red glass dot, borrowed from the legendary Leica lenses, round off the overall appearance of this design collaboration.
Three models from the Master & Dynamics model portfolio serve as the basis for this jointly produced collection: The MW60 wireless over ear headphones, the MH40 over ear headphones and the brass version of the ME05 earphones.
