Master & Dynamic is a New York-based audio company who is well known for its lifestyle headphones that also sound amazing. Kevin Durant is an NBA superstar who owns an investment company called Thirty Five Ventures. The pair have announced a new partnership which will see Kevin Durant taking equity in Master & Dynamic.
We love Master & Dynamic products here and the company was founded around the same time we were. They make high-end headphones with great style and even better sound. We love them because the sound stage is balanced giving you a more accurate representation of what the artist intended you to hear.
“Master & Dynamic has been elevating the audio game since they launched in 2014 and I felt that they were a company I had to get involved with,” said Kevin Durant. “Music is such a huge part of my life that their products have become an important part of my day to day, and I’m looking forward to some amazing collaboration between our teams.”
The company has been collaborating with other companies such as Louis Vuitton and Leica Camera. These partnerships have put the company on the radar and Kevin Durant is moving on the opportunity to help grow the brand.
“We are extremely privileged to partner with select leaders across various disciplines. They inspire us daily with their focus and commitment to quality and craft,” states Jonathan Levine, founder, and CEO of Master & Dynamic. “Our partnership with Kevin Durant and his Thirty Five Ventures business partner Rich Kleiman is no different. The more time I spent with Kevin and the 35 Ventures team, the more I realized how Kevin’s deep love of music and technology and approach to his craft, basketball, mirrors that of Master & Dynamic: concentration, focus, and tireless and dynamic pursuit of mastery. And he does this based on his own internal drive rather than a need to impress the world.”
In addition to having part ownership in Master & Dynamic, the full partnership will also see Durant and Thirty Five Ventures work with the company on creative, design and building out the intersection of sports and music. In June, a special edition “Studio 35” colorway of the newly released MW65 Active Noise-Cancelling Wireless Over-Ear Headphones from Master & Dynamic will launch. Fans will be able to purchase the custom designed cool grey active noise-cancelling headphones online at masterdynamic.com and at select retail locations.
This partnership is much more than an NBA endorsement deal like you see with athletes using Beats products. It seems Kevin Durant actually loves the product and has an interest in seeing it grow. It will be interesting to see what he does for the company.
