It is andrew here you can find me on twitter at andrew underscore osu and thank you so much for spending just a little bit of time with me today. As we talk about the brand new master and dynamic mw08, true wireless earbuds i’ve been a fan of the mw07 and the mw07 plus for a long time, but the mw07 plus was never a true successor to the original mw07. But the mw08 takes everything to a whole new level and there’s a lot of stuff to talk about with these guys, so let’s go ahead and dive into what makes the mw08 such an exceptional set of true wireless earbuds. So the new mw08 have a lot of upgrades, and the first one you can see from the outside is an all new case design. If you saw the original ones, which i happen to have right here. It was a flat case flat versus kind of you know. Vertical like that, and it made it kind of difficult to open one handed, so, the new design is, of course, a more vertical design, more akin to what we’ve got with the airpods pro and it’s very similar in size. To what we see from the airpods pro makes it very easy to open and close. I don’t want to click it a bunch of camera, but makes it a lot easier to open and close one handed than the previous design was so new vertical design. It also comes in several new colors, so we have the actual matte black finish here with the black earbuds, but there’s.
Also, a gunmetal gray that’s got a glossy finish and there’s a two that come with the polished, stainless steel cases same as we saw before. So all new cases on here still charges via usbc there on the side, then the earbuds themselves take a look at these guys. Look how flipping gorgeous these earbuds look they’re, absolutely amazing! They are works of art. Mastering dynamic has traded in the acetate. That was on the prior generations, the mw07 and mw07 plus traded that in for new ceramic ceramic, if you remember, is what apple was using on their high end, apple watch editions and we saw from a few other manufacturers in the watch space as well. And, of course, now we have that here in the mw08, which is really cool to use that high end material in here they have an aluminum rim around that edge there, an aluminum body, and it has a new bonded antenna that’s on the outside, which gives it That exceptional 100 foot 33 meter range pretty outstanding for a set of headphones. We usually see only that kind of performance from airpods or airpods pro and apple’s own proprietary wireless chip, so some really good range out of the mw08s they connect via bluetooth 5.2. So we saw an upgrade there it’s, the latest version, or one of the newer versions of bluetooth, at least in the support, app decks, aac and sbc audio codecs if you’re streaming from a compatible device that supports those formats as well real quick.
I want to talk about battery life because i’m still blown away by this. These guys will get 12 hours on a single charge, that’s right just the earbuds themselves. You put these in your ear and you can leave them in there for 12 hours without having to charge them included with the case is another 30 hours for a combined total of 42 hours of playback time without having to plug this case in to a charger That is absolutely outstanding. Air pods get your airpods programmed at four and a half hours and that’s when they’re new, so four and a half hours compared to 12. These things have almost three times the battery life of airpods pro that’s, just flipping fantastic, so let’s go ahead and talk about audio quality master dynamic, upgraded the mw8 with a new 11 millimeter beryllium driver that’s, the biggest driver instead of headphones with anc and it’s it’s. Great uh, i listened to a bunch of music and i just remember, listening to what’s up danger, which is like my blue jackets hockey pump up song from the into the spider, verse soundtrack, and it just has some incredible bass and oh my gosh. The way would resonate through you. The bass was incredible on these things. The sound stage is just huge. These things put out a lot of sound and they just sound immaculate. I remember listening to some acapella version of songs. You can hear just like the subtleties and how someone’s breathing these just have some of the best audio quality i’ve tried on a set of earbuds, so fantastic audio quality, combined with some pretty amazing noise cancellation, so they’re, using hybrid, active noise cancellation here and combined with Their app you get a ton of power, so you can turn anc off, don’t worry about it or you can put it onto awareness modes where you can hear either your surroundings or prioritize voices for when you’re having a conversation or if you just want anc on You can put on all day anc in the app and that will give you a full battery life on that anc or, if you’re, on some place, that’s really loud like a plane.
You want to boost that up a little bit. You can go to the max anc and get even more blocking. I have tested a ton of true wireless earbuds, and these have the pretty much best anc that i’ve tried. The previous kings in terms of wireless earbuds were the bose quietcomfort anc earbuds. These are they’re. Pretty much on that level, so these are pretty much some of the best anc i’ve experienced in a set of earbuds. Their noise cancellation is also great, so they’re using that uh, and i mean for for phone calls not just for music but they’re, using a six microphone array on here, and it does a really good job, especially blocking out wind, definite props for the anc all around. On these new earbuds, there is so much to love on the master and dynamic mw8. True wireless earbuds, everything about them is better than the mw07 plus and they’re pretty much the near perfect set of headphones. I mean they have incredible. Battery life. Amazing, audio quality anc is fantastic, they have a new case, design new materials, new colors, so much about them has been improved, they’re they’re simply near perfect. There are expensive and they do lack some of the features that airpods have such as spatial audio and possibly the ability to tie in to define my app on iphone, but those small trade offs, i think, are worth it for a truly exceptional set of earbuds. Let me know what you guys think.
