Every few years, Master & Dynamic gives us another excellent reason to splurge on wireless earbuds. The MW08s that debuted earlier this year were no exception, but for $300 they lacked a popular feature that is being included with the new Master & Dynamic MW08 Sport: wireless charging.

On top of incredible battery life, earbuds made of luxe materials, and 11mm drivers that made the M&D MW08s sound as good as they looked, the stainless steel charging case had a satisfying heft to it. The only problem was that wireless charging, a feature that’s becoming almost standard with wireless earbuds, doesn’t work through metal, so the MW08s shipped without it. It was far from a dealbreaker, but on $300 wireless earbuds, its omission didn’t go unnoticed.

Instead of releasing a more affordable version of the MW08s with a plastic charging case that made wireless charging possible, Master & Dynamic has gone the other way with its new MW08 Sport earbuds. The stainless steel charging case has been replaced by one made of woven Kevlar fibers so it’s still as durable and eye-catching, but with the added benefit of Qi compatibility.
