Master & Dynamic


High End Headphones & Sound Tools



About Us



We are a New York City-based premium audio brand with a deep passion for building beautifully crafted, richly appointed, technically sophisticated sound tools for creative minds. Designed for decades of use, Master & Dynamic products utilize only the finest materials and are engineered to last, creating the perfect balance of aesthetics, strength, comfort and sound. Launched in May 2014, our products can be found in Avvenice.



The M & D Story



Entrepreneur Jonathan Levine was drawn to the audio market as a result of the products his then teenage sons were using, ultimately deciding to make a product that would be iconic, durable, and timeless. In May of 2014, Master & Dynamic was born, a company whose products share a common DNA – a focus on great design, luxury materials, amazing craftsmanship, and uncompromising performance, comfort, and sound.



Philosophy



We believe mastery is a never-ending exploration requiring a dynamic approach. Sound is a catalyst and a powerful creative element, helping to focus, inspire, and transport your mind. We build sound tools for creative minds.



Product DNA



Designed for Decades of Use



We engineer our products to last, utilizing materials and finishes that stand the test of time. We design key parts to be easily replaceable, ensuring that our products continue to perform and delight for decades to come.



Crafted with The Finest Materials



We build our products using only the finest and most durable luxury materials, delivering the perfect balance of aesthetics, strength, comfort and utility.



Tuned for a Rich, Warm Sound



We created a natural, detailed, live sound signature for our audio products. Our expansive soundscape perfectly captures the exceptional detail of well-recorded music. Our tuning is designed to complement a diversity of tastes and musical genres.



Complemented by Functional Details



We carefully integrate essential functions and practical details into our designs, from our proprietary Bluetooth antennae to the tactile experience of every interface.

Arts Education



Master & Dynamic is proud to invest in the next generation of creatives.


For us, art and music are essential parts of every student’s education. Arts programming teaches students how to articulate their ideas in a communicable form, while cultivating a creativity that can be employed in any area they choose to pursue.



Since 2013, we’ve partnered with Harlem Village Academies (“HVA”) High, a public charter school in Harlem and part of the five-school HVA network, to support their arts and music education programs.



Contributions from Master & Dynamic have established HVA High’s foundational art program, offering 2D and 3D art classes within the high school, and Master & Dynamic headphones allow students to do greater independent and small group work in their music classes.



Through our products and giving, we are committed to supporting the exploration, learning and development of HVA’s students, as well as the wider creative community. For more about HVA, check out our blog piece Supporting Young Creatives at Harlem Village Academies.
