The collection totals five different kinds of headphones, each of which draws part of its design identity from the German manufacturers.
AMG is Mercedes’ performance arm, an in-house sub-division that began life as an independent company capable of transforming an everyday Mercedes into a machine for the track. In recent years, AMG has branched out into building its own cars, separate and distinct from those sold by its sister company, as well venturing into electrified performance, with sizzling versions of the EQE and EQS.
For the collaboration with Master & Dynamic, the AMG logo is being applied to four distinct products, the MW75 Active Noise-Cancelling headphones, MW08 Sport True Wireless Earphones, and the MC100 Charge Pad. M&D makes superb audio products, so the partnership is more about adding a light veneer of logos and high-quality materials.
The MW75 headphones feature Active Noise-Cancelling and a 28-hour battery life, with the former available in three different modes depending on the surroundings. Soft leather ear cups and aluminium detailing come as standard, bearing a distinctive chrome-plated 3D Mercedes-AMG logo, which is embossed onto the leather headband. Red details amp up the sporty image.
Gamers are catered for by the MG20 Wireless Gaming Headphones, which are a cut above the category’s usual standard. Combining magnesium, fine leather and Alcantara®, the MG20s have a detachable boom microphone as well as an integrated microphone array. 7.1 surround sound is provided for full immersion and there’s a 22-hour battery life.
The MW08 Sport True Wireless Earphones x Mercedes-AMG are made from shatter-resistant sapphire glass and housed in a carbon fibre charging case. A variety of foam tip sizes accommodates every ear shape and the bespoke software gives adaptable levels of noise cancellation. Together with the charge case, there’s a total of 42 hours of battery life on offer.
Pair the above with the Mercedes-AMG branded MC100 Wireless Charge Pad, which can also be used with more recent models of iPhone. The circular pad is made from coated canvas with a cast aluminium base.
Prices start from £329.
