Even though many headphone companies now offer wireless versions, people concerned about audio quality still prefer the wired versions simply because they sound better, despite any recent improvements in Bluetooth. So what do you do when you have a sizable investment in a headphone only to find that your favorite smartphone maker has ditched the headphone jack—use a silly dongle? Master and Dynamic has come up with a better solution by offering a new headphone cable that plugs directly into an iPhone lightning port or an Android smartphone USB-C port—depending on your need.
Master & Dynamic’s Lightning to 3.5mm audio cable optimizes the connection between headphones and iPhone or iPad. An advanced digital to analog (DAC) converter provides acoustic benefits and a heavy-duty woven fabric covering ensures durability. The 4 ft. cable includes a remote with voice control-enabled microphone, and is compatible with M&D’s MW60, MW50, MH40 and MH30 headphones.
The (almost) identical USB-C to 3.5mm audio cable connects to an Android device. Like the Lightning cable, the USB-C cable also has a built-in DAC and remote with voice control-enabled microphone—and is also compatible with the MW60, MW50, MH40 and MH30 headphones.

Both versions of cables come in either black or white. The $69 Apple Lightning cable will be available on May 4. The $49 USB-C cable will be available on May 24. M&D is running a 50% off promotion for all Digital Accessories cables between now and Sunday(April 29th).
