a year since the release of the first edition, master & dynamic and leica collaborate for a second time to create the ‘leica 0.95: the silver edition’. the signature collection continues the partnership’s plan of bringing perfect sound to photo-enthusiasts by including the headphones; ‘MW60s’ and ‘MH40s’, as well as the ‘ME05s’ earphones. much like the first edition, the second collection is once again inspired by the germany-based camera company’s ‘noctilus-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH’, which is said to feature the world’s fastest aperture aspherical lens, but alternatively, features a sleek silver shade instead of the original black blush.

when I founded master & dynamic, it was in great part inspired by the companies and products I used and had long admired. leica was one of the first companies that we partnered with. I was thrilled and honored that they saw the connection to their own attention to materials, craftsmanship, details and of course technology. the patina that develops over time with well-used leica cameras, something the owners show with pride, is something our early fans and users are cherishing about their master & dynamic headphones‘, explains jonathan levine, founder and CEO of master & dynamic, to designboom. ‘the silver edition was something we always knew we would get to. while both collections are beautiful, I believe the new silver edition has a deeper connection to the iconic leica colorways. now the question becomes which ‘master & dynamic for 0.95’ signature collection color suits you best!

as a collaboration that merges the very best technology in photography and audio, the master & dynamic products had to meet very high expectations. as such, the ‘master & dynamic for 0.95’ signature collection in silver features the ‘MW60’ wireless and ‘MH40’ headphones, as well as the ‘ME05’ earphones. the over-ear devices, detailed in a compelling combination of silver metal and black leather, delivers crisp and excelling sound quality from its cups. similarly, the silver-colored but brass earphones offer superior acoustic qualities but vitally, its changeable silicone tips are also designed to fit perfectly for listening on the move.
