Audio46's Opinion

In our humble opinion, the MM-500 is the best planar studio headphone on the market. It stands way out in its ability to replicate the effect of professional near-field monitors with incredible precision and clarity. Its realistic presentation offers a pure interpretation of mixes, making it an excellent choice even for non-professional users seeking honest, yet captivating sound. With a balanced and open sound signature, the MM-500 delivers an anally accurate soundstage, dynamic bass, rich mids, and super-detailed highs. Never has a mixing headphone sounded this fun. And of course, Audeze never disappoints with respect to build; this is one solid set of cans. And as a cherry on top, the MM-500 is super easy to drive. We love.
