OVERVIEW

On-ear design with a 40mm driver that delivers detail and accuracy.

Marantz Professional’s MPH-1 headphones feature powerful 40mm drivers and a comfortable on-ear design, perfectly suited for both long hours in the studio monitoring in-field recordings or listening to music. With their authoritative 15–28kHz frequency response, the MPH-1 delivers the detail and accuracy needed to accurately evaluate every recording. The leather cushioning on the flexible headband and ear cups provides a fatigue-free listening experience for even the longest-lasting, most demanding sessions and their rugged stainless steel telescopic arms easily stand up to heavy-duty use. An impedance of 32Ω and 95dB sensitivity ensures compatibility with the widest range of equipment. The MPH-1 includes a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter and brings Marantz Professional’s industry-leading field recording engineering to professional headphone audio.

I had the Sony MDR 7506 and my cat chewed the audio wire connecting the right ear. Burning and twisting it back together worked somewhat, sometimes. Looking at the MPH-1 the audio wires are more concealed ( I will try to keep these out of kitty's path) and the straight cord vs. the telephone cord appealed to me too. The reviews were good on the sound quality and after trying them I was pleased with the sound for my purpose. I use these for piano practice. These headphones are lightweight and comfortable, They do not fold which I like because picking them up and putting them on is easy. I believe these will last me a good long while and would purchase the same again. Very satisfied with the sound, quality and price.

I bought this phone when they were offered as the "Stupid Deal of the Day", and I got them for a really good price. They are functional and comfortable.

Now the bad news... They are not worth a penny more! The audio quality is not what I expected from a highly-reputed company like Marantz. They are dull and rather lifeless; I have several sets of relatively inexpensive ear buds that sound better. I can't believe the MSRP!

    Comments about Marantz MPH-1 Professional Studio Headphones:

    I almost didn't order these headphones because of the somewhat mixed reviews. I decided it was worth the risk because of the sale price, though. I wasn't sure what to expect, but once I put these headphones on and heard them, I hopped on Musiciansfriend and ordered a second pair within a few minutes. By far the best sounding headphones I've ever had. It's probably worth mentioning that the most expensive headphones I've had before were probably half the original price of these , though.

            Comments about Marantz MPH-1 Professional Studio Headphones:

            Once you go 50mm there's no going back! These cans deliver the profound and comfortably out perform industry standard Sony MDR-7506 at a very friendly price. I've never had the bling to roll with the big boys' 50mm MDR-7509's and these are likely equally capable of unstrenuously delivering the bottom and it makes all the difference to have linear low end extension without exaggeration. The detachable cord is a great plus as it allows for the substitution of a short iPhone ready 3.5mm 3 and 4 conductor double male cord with mic and control for mobile conversation and on the go music delight.

                  For college radio station - screw in 1/4 inch adapter gives secure connection to board and head phone distribution jacks, enough sound insulation to block studio sound and allow concentration on sound going on air, but still comfortable. Cheap enough for unreimbursed expense.

                          When I first bought these as a Stupid Deal The Day I felt like they sounded good for high energy type music, but with it's hyped low end not good with anything else. Good build quality of you ignore the fact the first pair I received were defective out of the box. Then I bought a pair of Musicians Gear MG900 headphones. These are the exact same headphones! Look the same, sound the same. Not just really close, exactly the same. These were made in the same factory in china, side by side, with different stickers and markings put on at the end. Really disappointing for a company that back in the day made high quality hi-fi gear. I'm going to rate the MG900's better, because expectations are lower. If you can get these on SDofD, they are worth the money. Anything over that is markup for the sellout name on them.

                          I bought these on sale and I must say it is a great value. They sound great and are comfortable on my head. They don't feel super robust like my Grados but they are really well made and not heavy. The cord is long but not very thick. Great value I say.

                            Bought it @ stupid deal thinking I got a great deal but they turned out to be uncomfortable and heavy for their size. Overall volume was low and definition was not surprisingly good.

                              Despite Marantz reputation I received the headphones right before a long air flight, tried them out fresh out of the packaging only to find the headphone jack cuts in and out. For the price and the cost of shipping on the return; I'll probably end up just trying to fix them myself as "Refunds are for product value & tax only, excluding shipping and handling charges" Guessing theres not much quality control on this product.

                                    I use these headphones to monitor the mixer for guitar practice. They are comfortable to wear and the sound is clear and powerful.

                                      I volunteer at a college radio station where the control board and headphone distribution jacks are all 1/4 inch. The screw-in adapter is great as it requires no wiggling and doesn't get left behind in the jack for expropriation by the next DJ. The ear pads are comfortable and effectively shut out outside sounds so you can clearly hear what is (and is not) going out on the air.
