One thing I have always said about any Master & Dynamic piece of hardware is that the sound is on point. The MW08 may be the best I have ever used. They deliver an even sound, which I think offers advantages to any genre you are listing to. I found this especially in more classical-sounding tracks by artists like Brass Against and David Bowie.
Also, the connection is exceptional, this is helped by the upgrade to Bluetooth 5.2! Call quality on my side is great, everyone is crisp and I can hear what they are saying. A proprietary wind-reduction microphone array means clearer calls in any environment.
Finally, I was able to get around a huge 45 hours of battery out of these. This is compared to the 4 hours I got from the original MW07 Earphones. Also, the case includes around 3 full charges.
Overall, the Master & Dynamic MW08 Active Noise Cancelling True Wireless Earphones are probably the best true wireless earphones out. Finally, check out our other audio reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
