M & D stated that people used the MW07 for workouts, although they were not specifically built for it. The first model is rated IPX4 only against splashes. That's probably enough not to ruin the $ 299 earphones, but much of the competition offers more protection. In response to customer feedback, the company opted for a "dedicated active model" that is smaller, more durable and more watertight.
The earphones themselves are made of TR90 composite, a substance typical for the manufacture of glasses. M & D has been inspired by eyewear in the past: both the MW07 and the MW07 Plus have acetate shells that also make eyeglass frames. To ensure a secure fit, the MW07 Go comes with three sizes of Fit Wings and five sizes of earplugs. You can also use the earphones without wings, but I've found that they help keep things in place. And if you need to answer a call, the MW07 Go is equipped with two beamforming microphones that, according to the company, "filter out" external interference when you are in a loud place.
The physical controls of the MW07 are retained. With volume buttons on the left earpiece and a multi-function option on the right for play / pause, skip tracks, and access your voice assistant. However, the MW07 Go does not have proximity sensors so the earphones will not automatically stop when you remove them from your ears. They also lack active noise cancellation and the ambient noise mode of the new MW07 Plus.
