Conceived and refined in one of the world’s most acclaimed recording studios, the MM-500 is a purpose-built tool designed to deliver mixes that consistently translate and capture the emotion the artist intended. Lighter than the famous LCD-X, the MM-500’s sleek and sturdy chassis offers all-day comfort.

MM-500 is designed to suit the requirements of long daily listening sessions under almost any condition. World-class studio monitor? Check. Quick reference on-the-go? No problem. Deep late-night listening? Done. With its ease of drive, comfortable fit and trustworthy sound, you can count on the MM-500 to deliver in every situation.

You need to hear everything at its most natural and pure – exactly when you need it – anywhere, anytime. Manny knows the importance of headphone listening in today’s world: studio to stage, cafe to beachfront, canal to jetway, the MM-500 is the reference to the soundtrack of your life.

Featuring extra-plush premium leather ear pads, an adjustable spring steel headband, and a machined aluminium structure, the MM-500 feels substantial yet lightweight. Just like our flagship headphones, the MM-500 is hand-crafted in Audeze's Southern California workshop to provide years of reliable comfort in a package that calls out to be held, admired and listened to.

Offering studio-quality sound, always within reach, the MM-500 is truly the next level of performance in pro audio. Whether you’re stepping up from the classic LCD-X or from another brand, the MM-500 will be as much a part of your life as your favourite pair of sneakers.

The planar magnetic drivers of MM-500 provide realism that audio professionals cannot live without.
