Master & Dynamic and Leica Camera continue their partnership with the Silver Edition

Less than a year after the two premium brands reimagined four products in black metal, the “Master & Dynamic for 0.95” signature collection is back for double exposure in a new silver colorway

[New York, NY] March 20, 2018: New York City-based premium audio company
Master & Dynamic today announced the second chapter of its partnership with like-minded premium camera company Leica Camera and their high-end accessories brand 0.95. Less than a year after the two icons fused their common values in creating the

“Master & Dynamic for 0.95” signature collection, the collaboration’s Silver Edition has arrived. Inspired by the design of the world’s fastest aperture aspherical lens, the Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH, the Silver Edition “Master & Dynamic for 0.95” signature collection includes silver metal/black leather MW60 Wireless Over-Ear ($549) and
MH40 Over-Ear Headphones ($399), as well as silver-colored brass ME05 Earphones ($199). All Silver Edition products are available exclusively at www.masterdynamic.com.

Featuring Master & Dynamic’s famous blend of form and function, the Silver Edition mirrors the iconic silver color of Leica cameras and lenses, uniting the precision engineering, superb performance, quality materials and enduring value found in both brands.

“We admired Leica’s attention to detail, commitment to excellence and mastery of their craft long before we hit the market” said Jonathan Levine, Founder and CEO of
Master & Dynamic. “It was an honor to call them a partner in 2017, and it’s an even bigger privilege to build upon that relationship with the Silver Edition in 2018.”

Outfitted with high performance 45mm Neodymium and 8mm titanium drivers, both tuned to the brand’s signature rich, warm sound profile, the Silver Edition headphones and earphones embody the uncompromising mentality both brands are beloved for.

A combination of durable cowhide and supple lambskin reminiscent of the leather used on Leica camera bodies and straps comprise the headband and ear pads of the MW60 Wireless Over Ear and MH40 Over-Ear Headphones, while the iconic red marker known from Leica’s legendary lenses, as well as the brand’s signature knurling, are apparent throughout both the headphones and the ultra-tough PVD-coated earphones. Other nods to Leica’s heritage include 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” signature series headphones and earphones – just like Leica cameras and lenses – are meant to accompany one on a journey through life, whether traveling the globe or just savoring the beauty found in the moments of everyday life.

“We are happy to continue the success story of the partnership between Leica Camera and Master & Dynamic with the iconic silver colorway, which has been part of the Leica DNA for decades!” said Christoph Hillgärtner, Business Development Manager at Leica Camera AG. “From day one, our common objective for this collaboration has been to combine the best of both worlds in an extraordinary product. Now, having a look at the complete ‘Master & Dynamic for 0.95’ headphones collection I can proudly say - we actually surpassed this goal.”

Launched in April of 2017, the original “Master & Dynamic for 0.95” collection includes black metal/black leather MW60 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones ($549), black metal/black leather MH40 Over-Ear Headphones ($399), black PVD-coated brass ME05 Earphones ($199) and a black steel MP1000 Headphone Stand ($59).
