Last year, Master & Dynamic debuted its first wireless headphones with the over-ear MW60. Its followup, the on-ear MW50, is available starting today, which carries a similar design -- all silver aluminum and a choice of black or brown leather trim -- but weighs in at just 240 grams, 30% lighter than its predecessor. Inside, there are 40mm beryllium drivers for high-quality sound, and the headphones connect to your device via Bluetooth 4.1 with aptX. You'll get 16 hours of playback on a full charge, and a 3.5mm cable allows you to continue listening or recharge. Finally, a microphone array is built into the antenna for increased noise rejection and crystal clear calling. Priced at $449, you purchase the new MW50 now at

Recently, Master & Dyanamic took us on a helicopter ride over Manhattan to experience the MW50. Check out our photo recap below, shot by SamAlive.
