These new noise-canceling headphones rival Sony WH-1000XM5 – and they’re totally retro

Master & Dynamic has unveiled the new MW75 over-ear headphones, which are set to arrive later this month and boast a series of improvements, including better battery life for longer playback times and enhanced active noise cancellation (ANC).

Then there’s the eye-catching retro style, which looks like a throwback to a design worn by radio operators in the 1950s. But as we found with the MW65 ($ 499), the MW75 looks to embody the same company mantra for designing and building beautifully crafted and technically sophisticated headphones.
