Master & Dynamic, the buzzy New York City-based audio brand, has teamed with George Bamford and the Bamford Watch Department to create special-edition headphones.
The brands have worked to reimagine Master & Dynamic’s flagship MW60 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones in a black Saffiano leather with a Bamford aqua blue lambskin headband lining and black lambskin ear pads.
The headphones will retail for $549 and be available at the web sites for both companies as well as select retail stores beginning today.
Master & Dynamic’s founder and chief executive officer Jonathan Levine is an avid watch collector and often uses luxury timepieces as inspiration for his products. For example, the headphones use many of the same discrete, tactile buttons found on luxury timepieces to control music. He said after meeting Bamford, he realized the two brands had a lot of similarities.
“Ever since I was a child I’ve valued the time, effort and skill that goes into the creation of high-end watches. Today, I am proud to say that Master & Dynamic is officially part of that process,” Levine said.
