Master & Dynamic are one of our favorite headphone companies here at Techaeris and we generally take them at their word. But being that tomorrow is April 1st… we’re not so sure if we believe them or not. I reached out to their press representative for comment on the release of their brand new MH40C1 concrete headphones but have been met with stone cold silence.
As you can read in the press release below, these things weigh nearly 11 pounds which could very well give you some decent amount of neck pain. Really, the sound has got to be amazing for me to compress my spine into a pile of dust. Read the full press release below.

Master & Dynamic drops new signature MH40 Over-Ear Headphones
The highly-touted flagship model has received a solid concrete makeover
[New York, NY] March 31/April 1. 2017: New York City-based premium audio company Master & Dynamic is known for its use of premium materials. From headphones made of forged aluminum and heavy grain leathers to brass earphones, the brand has stayed on the cutting edge when making its premium sound tools. Today, Master & Dynamic upped the ante with a new edition of its signature MH40 Over-Ear Headphones made of solid concrete. The MH40C1 is available for $399 at www.masterdynamic.com.
In keeping with Master & Dynamic’s commitment to creativity, the brand’s team of dedicated engineers focused on a quality long since valued by their loyal customers: heft. Weighing in at 10.6 pounds, the MH40C1 is a marvel of ingenuity, producing the same high-end sound quality as its metal and leather counterpart, its smooth finish ensuring a superior level of comfort that allows for hours of continuous use.
“Master & Dynamic has consistently chosen the road less traveled. As of today, that road is paved with concrete,” said Master & Dynamic’s Founder and CEO Jonathan Levine. First released in May of 2014, the MH40 Over-Ear Headphones are the original modern thinking cap. Featuring 45mm custom neodymium drivers and a combination of metals and leathers, the headphones are the perfect tool for everyone from those recording high-quality music to those in need of good travel companions.
Master & Dynamic’s redesigned, concrete MH40 Wireless On-Ear Headphones are available now at www.masterdynamic.com for $399
