OVERVIEW

Over-ear design with a 50mm driver that delivers detail and accuracy.

The leather cushioning on the flexible headband and ear cups provides a fatigue-free listening experience for even the longest-lasting, most demanding sessions, with outstanding noise isolation. Their rugged stainless steel telescopic arms easily stand up to heavy-duty use. An impedance of 32Ω and 100dB sensitivity ensures compatibility with the widest range of equipment. The MPH-2 has a 180-degree rotating frame for convenient single ear monitoring and its collapsible design makes for easy portability. It includes a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter and a detachable locking 10-ft cable. The MPH-2 brings Marantz Professional’s industry-leading field recording engineering to professional headphone audio.

These headphones were inexpensive (& not reviewed anywhere), so I didn't expect much..."just another pair of DJ-style closed-back headphones." I was wrong! After ~75 hrs of burn-in, they sound quite good. Unlike many "U-shaped" closed headphones with hyped bass, treble, and receding midrange, these headphones have excellent impact and clarity throughout the frequency range. The midrange is their strong suit: very clear, non-fatiguing, and listenable. The bass is very capable, deep and impactful when present on a recording, and the treble is detailed but not bright. These headphones are a winner!

I bought a pair of the MPH-2's in a SDoD to have as extra closed back headphones for my studio. I find the sound is heavy on bass and dull throughout compared to my hi end Sennheisers. Usable for studio monitoring for performers but not for close listening. Also, they are quite large so may not fit well on some performers.

    Comments about Marantz MPH-2 Professional Studio Headphones:

    Hands down - these ARE the best cans for under a hundred. Frequency response is phenomenal - 10Hz low end - you only find that rating on high end cans from Bose, Beyerdynamic, etc. Crisp mids and highs - and defined (not muddled in the least) bass.

    Comments about Marantz MPH-2 Professional Studio Headphones:

    As far as I know, these just came out and I happened to get them on sale before the price went up. These are super comfortable headphones! I use these for private listening of CDs, LPs and other formats played through vintage Sherwood and Harmon Kardon stereos, and they sound fantastic. They're just a bit bassy for my taste, but not in an annoying sense, but hey, that's what EQ is for, right? They sound okay with my iPhone and Fiio X1 high resolution portable player, but the EQ *really* needs to be tweaked on both devices to get a decent sound.

    There are two issues I have with these headphones... First, I might try some DIY cloth earpads to help tweak the sound; the leather pads are nice, but I can imagine the sound would open up just a bit more with cloth pads. Second, the cable is TEN FEET LONG and feels a bit cheap to me. The cable is detachable (bayonet style) and is plastic where it locks into the left ear cup; I'm afraid either the cable end or the cup could eventually wear out with repeated removal of the cable and would have liked if it was threaded metal similar to the 1/4" screw-on adapter. I'd also like the option to use an aftermarket or DIY cable to further tweak the sound... Those issues aside, the MPH-2 are a great buy!

      Comments about MPH-2 Professional Studio Headphones:

      Very happy with these headphones. They are a bit on the heavy side, and took a few days to get used to the fit and heft, but now I find them quite comfortable. They do make my ears a bit warm, a price I am willing to pay for the relative isolation they provide. As for sound quality, I am extremely satisfied. I have been known to wear headphones for under ten seconds before rejecting them outright, so be sure that I am particular about sound. These are quite good.

          Comments about Marantz MPH-2 Professional Studio Headphones:

          These seem like decent headphones and for the forty or so USdollars that I paid are more than worth it. I don't know much about headphones but the 50mm drivers sounded like a good feature. The headphones sound really nice when connected to my guitar's effects pedal board or DAW. One thing I did not like was the funky design of the cord connection. It appears to need the dedicated cord that it comes with. There is no 1/8 jack for sound source connectivity so you will need a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter which I already had.
          The ear coverings are nice and plush w/more than ample comfort. Also the articulating design on the ear coverings is really cool.

              Sound quality was better than expected. Like everything about them but unless you have a huge head you may have issues with these. I always thought my head as being on the larger side. The headphones do not fit me on the tightest setting. I had to tape on additional padding so they would fit correctly.

                I bought these on SDOD, for home recording. They are solidly built, fit my huge heads and reproduce sound as well as my much more expensive Sennheisers. Highly recommend.

                  I'm no pro at recording. I record at home primarily as a hobby. I was using studio "style" headphones prior to getting these. They sound great for what I do. I cannot hear any external sound and the clarity of my recordings as well as just casual listening such as I-Tunes, YouTube, etc. it exceptional.
