I really enjoy my M&D MW65 ANC, seems like no one is talking about them. Normally they run for 500 but I got them for just over 400 with tax Black Friday.

Something to really consider. They claim to be “Be” drivers, I think possibly they are coated. But they are really smooth, and perform fairly well frequency wise. And I come from a wired headphone background.

Ive tried the Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC, Sennhieser 458 and Momentum, and the Sony MX4. The only thing close in sound quality was the Beyerdynamic. I’m almost certain they wipe the floor with airpods max.

I did consider the B&W, but the MW65 sealed the deal for me.
