Sound quality on truly wireless earbuds can seem like a bit of an afterthought. After all, most people just want these things not to fall out of their ears. But Master & Dynamic’s new MW07 truly wireless earbuds do a few new interesting things. Not only do they feel good and look great. They sound like an expensive dream.

A weird thing about reviewing gadgets for a living is that my neighbours notice. Sometimes they just call me out for getting a lot packages in the mail. Other times, they ask me for advice. One neighbour recently pointed out the $329 Jabra 65t Elite Active truly wireless buds I was wearing in the elevator. "What do you think?" he asked. After taking the earbud out of my head and asking him to repeat the question, I was honest and probably a little bit surprised by my candor. I said, "I love them. You should buy them."
Despite many tries, no company has nailed truly wireless earbuds. Apple's AirPods come close, but the lack of sports-friendly features has always been a problem. That's why I was so excited to see Sony release a set of truly wireless earbuds that are not only tight-fitting and water resistant, they also come with noise-cancelling. After two weeks of testing, I have to admit that the new Sony buds aren't perfect, but they're seductively good.
When I first heard the pitch for the Sony WF-1000X, I thought I was hearing it wrong. Sony made a new set of wireless earbuds that aren't just completely wireless -- they also employ active noise-cancelling tech. This is a first for the wireless earbud industry, and let me be the first to tell you: It's kind of awesome.
