Our passion is building beautifully designed, technically sophisticated sound tools for creative minds. Our MH30 On Ear Headphones are designed to be a more mobile thinking cap, part of the everyday creative toolkit for those whose workspace is ever-changing and fluid. 2 3 DESIGNED FOR DECADES OF USE EN Our headphones are designed to be an essential part of your everyday creative toolkit that can stand up to decades of use. They are built with the creative workspace in mind, yet with added portability. Our headphones are constructed of a forged aluminum body, and utilize stainless steel components in all high strain areas, including the foldable hinges. Areas subject to heavy wear, such as cables and ear pads, are built to last and can be easily replaced as needed. All metals are anodized or PVD coated, not painted. We separated the microphone from the remote for increased vocal clarity and reduced noise, removing the need to hold the remote while you speak on the phone. 4 5 APPOINTED WITH THE FINEST MATERIALS EN This headphone utilizes Alcantara®, a world-renowned luxury fabric.The suede-like material is famous for durability and comfort, and is woven from fibers of non-animal origin. We use it to cover our headband, ear cup inlay, and ear pads. Each ear pad has a memory foam core, providing superior comfort and breathability. Our heavy-duty woven cables utilize oxygen-free copper to ensure pure sound and reduced noise. All headphones include an Alcantara® box to store your extra cables and accessories, as well as a canvas carrying case with a soft interior lining. 6 7 A RICH, WARM SOUND EN We sought a rich, warm sound signature from our custom 40mm neodymium drivers. An expansive soundscape that perfectly captures the exceptional detail that well recorded music has to offer.

Simply grab the outside ring of the ear pad and remove. Reattach ear pads by aligning the three guide posts on the earcup with the three guide holes on the inside of the ear pad. 16 We designed our headphones with a 3.5mm input /output on both earcups. You can connect your source into either earcup. If you wish to share your listening experience, simply plug another pair of headphones into the available earcup jack. 17 MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING EN Clean ear pads and headphones with soft, slightly damp cloth. Do not soak, submerge or allow moisture to enter near the drivers or cable jacks. Ear pads and cables can be purchased if they are worn out at: www.masterdynamic.com No Sound: • Check to make sure all plugs are fitted completely into their jacks, both in the headphones and at the audio source. Do not drop, sit on, or allow the headphones to be exposed to water, moisture, or temperature extremes. • Check cable for signs of extreme wear or test another cable to see if cable is damaged. It is recommended that you return your headphones to their storage case when not in use. To avoid damage, do not store other items in the canvas case along with your headphones. 18 CAUTION: Incorrectly rotating or over rotating the earcups can damage the headphones. • Check source device to make sure sound is coming out. Remote not working: • Check to ensure that source plug is inserted into audio device and headphone plug is inserted into earcup. 19 HEARING HEALTH AND FITNESS EN Our ability to hear is amazing. Treat your ears like the precious tools they are, and they will continue to provide you with exceptional data, as well as a lifetime of incredible sonic experiences. In general, do not listen “too loud or for too long,” and be attentive to your own ears. Ringing, discomfort, or sensitivity to high frequencies and treble may be a signal from your ears that you are pushing them to their limits and causing damage. As a general practice, find what seems to be your preferred listening level and then adjust the volume down another 10% or more. Surprisingly, your ears will attune to a slightly lower volume over time, and what seems quiet at first can be perfect for longer listening periods. If your co-workers (3 – 10 feet away) are always singing along or commenting on your music choices, chances are good you may be listening too loud. See an audiologist to have your hearing tested. If you are interested in tuning your ear to have a more refined sonic palate, there are some apps and training programs you can find online. 20 21 PREVENTION OF NIHL (NOISE INDUCED HEARING LOSS) EN NIHL is a preventable condition caused by both one-time and extended exposure to excessive decibel (dB) levels. This harm to sensitive inner ear structures is irreversible and people of all ages can be affected. Damage can happen in a single event or gradually over time. One-time exposure to sounds louder than 110 decibels and extended exposure to sounds over 85 decibels can cause harm. Indicators of NIHL include hearing loss and tinnitus, a condition of sensing constant ringing, buzzing or roaring. The NIDCD (National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders) offers this simple rule of thumb: avoid sound exposure that is “too loud, too close or too long.” Here are some general references to sound levels that occur in everyday life: refrigerator humming (45 dB); normal conversation (60 dB); city traffic (85 dB); motorcycles (95 dB); an MP3 player at full volume (105 dB); sirens (120 dB); firecrackers (150 dB). 22 23 WARRANTY AND CUSTOMER SERVICE EN Master & Dynamic guarantees this product against defects in materials or workmanship for a period of two years from the date of original purchase from an authorized Master & Dynamic retailer or reseller.
