Setup & First Impressions

The Master & Dynamic MH40 over-the-ear headphones sport 45mm drivers with really soft and plush lambskin leather that wraps around the ears with supreme comfort. The headband also sports the same lambskin leather on the under-side of the headband, while there is tougher full-grain leather on the outside of the headband for more durability. Under the headband leather is a metal rod for rigidity and there is metal construction throughout the connecting mechanisms where the earcups are joined the headband. The entire earcup backing and support structure is also made completely of metal and it really feels like it will last the test of time and the thrashing of a traveling DJ.

The Master & Dynamic MH40 headphones are bundled with great accessories that would fit the bill for a DJ or producer's performance and lifestyle needs. The MH40's come bundled with two different cables (one with an in-line mic and remote and a straight cable without), that are both wrapped in durable fabric material. The MH40 headphones also come with a durable canvas carry bag for transport and storage. The MH40 come in a variety of different color options and they are advertised as being built from the finest materials while also being very durable.

In Conclusion, the Master & Dynamic MH40 headphones are a great audio solution for any sound professional or DJ who wants a good set of stylish, comfortable, and durable headphones that possess a metal construction throughout with a mixture of other high quality materials and workmanship. The Removable and replaceable earpads have comfortable lambskin leather with plush memory foam that engulfs the entire ear for a nice seal for sound isolation. The MH40's come bundled with two removable; high-quality black woven cables and they have great all around sound quality with deep punchy bass and clear mids/highs.

On the downside, the MH40's cannot fold or collapse for easier transport or storage and they have a pretty high price at $399 per set. These minor gripes aren't enough to make me not want a pair as these are definitely going in the DJbooth collection based on their build quality and craftsmanship alone...
