I’ve spent the last few months using the new Master & Dynamic MW08 True Wireless Earphones, which I are one of the best pair of TWS earphones I used in quite some time but, just recently, I received the new MW08 Sport earphones from Master & Dynamic to try out. Packing a number of additional features and improvements, it looks like M&D have taken what was already great with the MW08 earbuds and made them even more feature-rich and practical at the same time.

The internals of the MW08 Sport earphones remains the same as the MW08s, featuring the same 11mm Beryllium drivers, exterior aluminum antennas and six-microphone setup. Keeping all of the internals the same makes sense considering how great everything worked in the original MW08 earphones. If you’d like to learn more about how good these sound, you can read our original Master & Dynamic MW08 review.

There are, as mentioned above, a few upgrades that make the MW08 Sport earphones even more impressive than the originals.

New MW08 Sport Features & Upgrades

Right off the bat, the construction of the earphones and case has been given a sleek looking makeover. Each earphone now features shatter-resistant sapphire glass that gives them a  more premium appearance and more durable constructions.

I also found that the sapphire glass does not pick up fingerprints, which is a nice bonus. Next is the case, which is now made of super-strong Kevlar as opposed to the classic stainless steel we’re used to seeing on previous Master & Dynamic charging cases.

Not only does this make the case more sturdy, but it also drops the weight. The last upgrade has to do with the ear tips. While Master & Dynamic does include multiple silicone ear tips in various sizes to choose from, they have now added two additional sizes of memory foam ear tips.

These new ear tips not only feel great in your ear, but they also make a complete seal and stay firm even during intense workouts. After using them during one of my workouts, I can easily say that the MW08 Sports did not budge at all, which is exactly what you want from a pair of sport-focused earbuds.

The last upgrade, and probably the most useful of all is the charging case’s wireless charging capability. Thanks to the new Kevlar charging case, Mastery & Dynamic has installed the necessary components to make it able to charge wireless.

Master & Dynamic has also launched their own uber-stylish MC100 Wireless Charge Pad that you can buy alongside your new MW08 Sport earphones. It has a max charging output of 10w and can charge any of your other Qi enabled wireless charging compatible devices.

The earbuds are, as you’d imagine, compatible with the company’s new M&D Connect app for Android and iOS so you can tweak the ANC, auto power off settings and upgrade the earbuds’ firmware. One feature which is still yet to make its way to both these MW08 Sport and the MW08 earphones is multi-point connections, giving you the ability to connect the earbuds to two devices at once and be able to switch between them seamlessly. We’ve been told that it should make its way to both pair of earbuds soon and we can’t wait for it to arrive.

At €349, the new Master & Dynamic MW08 Sport earphones may be a bit pricey for some but they’re one of the most feature-rich and stylish pair of wireless earbuds money can buy. They look fantastic, sound incredible, and now offer everything you would need from true wireless earphones.
