Master & Dynamic MW65 have a weight of 245g, these weigh below 320g, which we consider as the highest average a headphone should weigh for comfort during long use.
We consider a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
Adidas RPT 01, at 215g are lighter than the Master & Dynamic MW65 with a difference -30g
Detachable cables are cables that have connectors on both ends. One end goes into your headphone earpieces, while the other end is inserted into a source device. Some new headphones, and not just the expensive ones, are coming with detachable cables, Master & Dynamic MW65 are one of those.
The Adidas RPT 01 is dustproof and water-resistant. A water-resistant device can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, if it is to be submerged into the water this is usually set to a given depth and for a specific time period.
By sweat resistance we mean that the wireless earbuds are protected in the presence of low-pressure water jets at any angle, this is determined by the IP Rating of the earbuds. Based on the ingress protection rating of the Adidas RPT 01 they do have sweat resistance
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement, but remember that every cable based on the conducting material used has a certain amount of parasitic resistance, inductance, and capacitance. How much depends on the length and construction. Master & Dynamic MW65 comes with a 1.5meters cable.
Over-ear headphones have larger earpads that fit around your entire ear Master & Dynamic MW65 have a comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This design is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors.
Adidas RPT 01 with this design offer potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
On-ear headphones have smaller earpads that sit on top of your ears, this Adidas RPT 01 comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.
Master & Dynamic MW65 have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Adidas RPT 01 and Master & Dynamic MW65 have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 outside (noise from your surrounding) and adding -1 inside (counter sound within the device) to make zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Master & Dynamic MW65 allow you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise.
Passive Noise Cancellation uses well-designed ear cups to seal out environment noise. This is used for both in-ear earphones and over-ear headphones where the headphone itself will keep surrounding noise out. The Master & Dynamic MW65 sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
Low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device reproduces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it. Master & Dynamic MW65's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
High frequency response measures if and how well an audio component reproduces high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it. Master & Dynamic MW65's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. Master & Dynamic MW65 driver unit is 40mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Impedance is the device's resistance to the electromagnetic current, as electricity flows through a conductor, it faces electrical resistance that counters the flow of current. The resistance of a wire is measured in ohms. Master & Dynamic MW65's impedance is 32Ohms, the lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
Neodymium magnets if used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, SPL, with the use of high magnetic flux. The Master & Dynamic MW65 have this type of magnet.
If your headphones play wirelessly, cancel ambient noise, or enhance your listening experience with active features, their battery life will reduce over time. The device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often. Master & Dynamic MW65's battery life is 24 hours
Adidas RPT 01's battery life is 40 hours. Each time you recharge your headphones, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first. But over a few years, you may find that your device, no longer plays for long like it used to.
It takes 3 hours to fully charge the Adidas RPT 01's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the headphones for the first time or when they have been unused for extended periods.
Master & Dynamic MW65 have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights indicate the charging status of your headphones.
A rechargeable battery is a type of electrical battery that can be charged, discharged into a load, and recharged many times, as opposed to a disposable or primary battery, which is supplied fully charged and discarded after use. Master & Dynamic MW65's battery can be recharged and used over again.
Master & Dynamic MW65 can be used wirelessly, wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
The Adidas RPT 01 also can be used wirelessly
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Master & Dynamic MW65 has a v4.2
Adidas RPT 01 has a Bluetooth version of v5. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Adidas RPT 01 support USB TYPE-C, an industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power on a single cable. The USB-C plug is now part and parcel of most current laptops, phones, and tablets, it features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
Bluetooth is a short-range wireless technology standard that is used for exchanging data between fixed and mobile devices over short distances. The Master & Dynamic MW65 can connect at a 20meters distance via Bluetooth or infrared to another device.
Being an industry standard audio plug, a standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards. This means that it is commonly used in stereo headphones to your phone or connecting your phone to an external amplifier, sound bars, your car radio, etc. Master & Dynamic MW65 has this connector giving it a wider range of connectivity with most of the sound devices out there. All plugs have at least a tip and sleeve with the number of rings that stand as a differentiating factor.
Master & Dynamic MW65 have only 2 microphones, more microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
The Adidas RPT 01 microphones are only 1.
Adidas RPT 01 have a mute function, they have an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device. The mute function means that you unilaterally turn off the microphone, but you can still hear the other party's voice.
There is a control panel on the Master & Dynamic MW65 body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
Master & Dynamic MW65 can be used as a headset. A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
Carrying headphones without a case, or putting them in bags without a casing can easily put them at risk of getting damaged. The Master & Dynamic MW65 come with their own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
