Master & Dynamic Mg 20 Test

It is worth noting that the MG 20 collects a pile of eco points when it’s unpacked. It doesn’t contain any plastic inside the sleek packaging. All of the items are stored securely as well as sustainably within cardboard. We love it. The range of products offered is impressive and promises plenty. USB dongle to operate wirelessly USB-C charging cable, microphone boom that can be detachable and pop protection. We were slightly annoyed when we first glanced at that USB-C-to 3.5 millimeter jack connector cable, which has a Y-switch connecting two Jacks. It functions, however, only when the headset is switched on. Offline cable operation in its pure form is not available on this site.

The wireless connection made via USB dongle is working well on PC or PlayStation However, it’s not working on the Xbox. We are aware of the issue. Wireless is also compatible with all BlueTooth-compatible devices like tablets or smartphones with the AAC feature, and also aptX HD is supported in BlueTooth-only mode. When utilized in conjunction with the USB dongle and the BlueTooth headset, the headset retracts it slightly before switching to a low-latency aptX mode.

The headphone itself feels light, weighing 322 grams with the microphone, yet highly durable. Master & Dynamic relies on premium materials. For example, the soft head pads made of Alcantara or earpads with lambskin leather covering. Uiuiui. The incredible piece is comfortable. The microphone can be set comfortably, the earcups can be rotated, and lengthy gaming sessions will not be an issue. The earpads are held to magnets, and they can be replaced if required and if they’re entirely moved.

The system includes all the essential functions and features. On the left side, you’ll find you can control the volume of the microphone, the ability to mute when you press the button to switch to 7.1 modes, and the combo button that allows you to switch on and pair the dongle with BlueTooth and an LED with a color that informs the user what your battery appears when it’s turned on. On the right, there’s the usual volume control and an option for music control and phone calls.

The battery can last for up to 22 hours; however, we got around 20 hours during our test. It is always dependent on the volume and use of the microphone. Using the charging cable connected at the same time is not an issue. The charging time is moderate. Within thirty minutes, the headphone will be half charged. The full blasting takes around 90 minutes.

A mobile application also works on iOS and Android; however, it’s very minimalist. It can only update firmware, and it has three presets for EQ (No E-Sports, EQ, and Bass Boost). Unfortunately, the ability to customize EQ options or settings isn’t provided. Also, you can set the waiting duration for standby mode. That’s it. There’s nothing else to do that you can do, and you’ll not discover any software for PCs with additional options. However, it is convenient; in fact, the headset is put on standby following the preset timer when you turn it away and then instantly comes back to life after turning it on.

Before we move on to sound, make some words regarding the microphone. The microphone’s detachable and well-placed boom provides a crisp, clear, and understood voice when using voice chat. It’s not exceptional, but of good quality and certainly not an issue. In terms of BlueTooth operation on smartphones, it has an inbuilt microphone for backup that does an excellent job.

The MG 20 is equipped with 50mm beryllium-coated drivers who earn points quickly. The drivers adapt your eardrums with two options for sound, which are regular stereo addition to 7.1 sound. The latter is quite pleasant and offers more space, although the directional perception may not be exactly as impressive – but at a higher level. Particularly in open environments or films, it’s still excellent. Of course, it depends on the audio source; however, the 7.1 mode was often a little too soft and reverberant for us.

Audio-wise it sounds excellent. MG 20 is one of the most enjoyable gaming headsets we’ve tested thus far. It’s already apparent in the very first test, which is music played on smartphones and the PC. The sound is absolutely stunning and very clear. It already scores points thanks to the crisp sound, powerful bass, and crisp trebles, in which not one thumper from the hi-hat is absent. Unfortunately, it loses a bit sound warmth and balance in favor of a distinctive sound due to the somewhat aggressive upper mids, but not enough to be distracting. As someone who is more progressive music, this is enjoyable because the details aren’t lost; however, there’s plenty of power.

Additionally, with videos and movies and movies, it also supports videos and films. MG 20 doesn’t afford any weakness and can deliver the music to your ears without sacrificing high-quality speech clarity. In particular, with big-scale productions and movies, the 7.1 mode is also a winner because it makes everything more significant and more spacious. It’s the same for gaming, regardless of whether Dolby Atmos and Windows Sonic do better surround sound than the original MG ’20s 7.1 modes.

It is necessary to sacrifice certain features regardless of the cost. Active noise cancellation? Missing. Chat balance in-game? It’s also missing. Together with the fact that the minimalist headset does not have its EQ setting, it’s too costly for us. The simultaneous streaming of audio streams through BlueTooth and dongles did not work.
