Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • Bass lacks a bit compared to other top-level models; these headphones are not for those who like a bit of boom
  • Master and Dynamic MH40 Wireless Headphones have 40mm drivers instead of the same 45mm drivers as the wired version
  • Onboard buttons feel cramped and require intense pressure to be activated, making them a little less convenient
  • Below-average battery life of 18 hours, a little less than our expectations compared to other over-ear headphones
  • Noticeable latency in watching movies and playing games while wirelessly connected with iOS devices due to the lack of support for AAC Bluetooth codec
  • No app support means they won't be customizable as some of the competition's high-end models
  • No Active Noise Cancellation, a feature now quite common in high end over-ear models
  • No ambient sound mode to keep you more in tune with the surroundings while listening to music on busy streets
  • The MH40 Wireless headphones have only one USB-C port, so you can't listen to the headphones while charging them
  • A USB Type-C to 3.5mm audio cable instead of a standard 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable means finding a replacement isn't that easy
  • Included cloth pouch protects against scratches and slight damage to water, but not against falls and impact
  • Sony WH-1000XM3 is a strong competitor with more dynamic sound, Active Noise Cancelling, much better battery life and more features
