Overall, the Master & Dynamic MW07 Plus make a very good impression. There are deductions for the telephone quality and the missing app. In terms of sound, however, the headphones are absolutely convincing. But in my opinion, the ANC function and the improved battery life of up to 40 hours with a charging case don't justify the significantly higher price. Just like the MW07 Go, these headphones - thanks to their firm yet light and comfortable fit in the ear - are also suitable for wearing during sports.
Appearance and equipment
I have tested the Master & Dynamic MW07 Plus in the colour "jade green". The "True Wireless" In-Ear Headphones with Noise Cancelling are delivered in a sturdy cardboard box with an illustrated cardboard cover and make a high-quality impression.
In the scope of delivery are
- In-ear headphones
- Hybrid silicone rubber ear pads, one pair each in sizes XS, S, M, L and XL
- Pass wings in sizes S, M and L
- USB-C charging cable
- Charging case and bag
- Quick Start Guide
Operating the headphones
The headphones are already preloaded, so you can start right away. To connect the headphones to your mobile phone, for example, simply remove them from the charging case to activate pairing mode. The LED on the right earbud now flashes white continuously. If this is not the case, press and hold the function key on the right earbud for 5 seconds to activate the pairing mode manually. Now search for "M&D MW07 PLUS" in your Bluetooth settings and connect.
Now insert the headphones and rotate them so that they sit firmly in your ear for a more secure fit.
The headphones can then be operated via your smartphone or via the function button on the right Earbud or the volume control on the left. Press the function key once to pause/play, press twice to fast forward a song and three times to rewind a song. On the left Earbud, you can adjust the volume. Pressing and holding the Vol + button activates/deactivates the Ambient Listening mode, pressing and holding the Vol - button activates/deactivates the Noise Cancelling.
The headphones do not have an associated app.
The headphones fit comfortably and very lightly in the ear. The fitting wings contribute well to secure hold. The various attachments supplied ensure, that the right size is available for each ear. If you insert the headphones into your ear as described, they should also fit securely. If they're too loose and slip out, try another essay.
The Master & Dynamic MW07 Plus have a very good sound and join the Master & Dynamic MW07 Go. From low to very high volumes, the sound image is always balanced and clear. The bass is very appealing, mids are clear and trebles are well balanced. The sound image has a voluminous sound even at low volumes. In addition, the stereo effect has been implemented very well, which was immediately noticeable in comparison to other headphones. The additional ANC on the MW07 Plus is a "nice-to-have", but the difference to switched off noise cancelling is small. Useful is the Ambient Listening function, with which you can listen to music in the office, for example, and still hear when you are addressed.
Bluetooth stability is very good. With a distance of 10 meters and 4 lightweight walls as a barrier, the connection remains without problems. Only at 20 meters and a concrete wall in between does the signal stop. As soon as you get back into Bluetooth range, the headphones automatically connect and the music starts playing again.
A call is answered/ ended by pressing the function key once. To reject a call, the function key is pressed twice. The person you are talking to can be easily understood via the MW07 Plus, but with slight background noise. Unfortunately, the person at the other end of the line hears you a little muffled.
The transport box also serves as a charging station. The headphones are inserted into the notches, where they are assigned to the left and right and are held securely in the box by a magnet. The lid of the box is also closed by a magnetic mechanism. In addition, there is a small cloth bag into which the charging box can be put in order not to scratch it during transport.
The charging box gives the headphones up to 30 hours more battery life. This corresponds to a triple charge of the headphones. On the outside of the box are 3 LEDs which indicate the battery status of the box (middle LED) and the battery status of the earbuds (left, right LED).
A micro-USB cable is included in the scope of delivery, with which the box can be recharged. This has a length of 102 cm. A socket adapter for the cable is not included.
