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.

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.

                  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.

                      These phones give me Crystal clear sound for music, or TV show audio. Much easier to understand dialog. Only problem is they're pretty snug around my ears so I have to take them off periodically to ventilate.

                        I bought these on a SDOTD for casual listening, and as a backup tracking headphones for recording. I don't think these are suited for mixing, and I don't intend to use them for that purpose. They simply don't offer a flat response. Bass sounds are definitely enhanced. I haven't had mine long, so time will tell how they hold up. So far, so good. I'm not sure how much they're worth, but Stupid Deal price was right for me.

                            Bought this for my teenage son for Christmas. Worked fine for about 1 month. Then the connection at the insert stopped working. Sound would go in and out. If I held it sideways it would work okay, but eventually it stopped working - only parts of the music would come through - for example only the music (no vocals) would play at a low volume, even though volume setting was set to high; and the vocals would be muted out. I called Musicians Friend for a replacement, but the rep on the phone coldly explained that the headphones have a high rating and I was 2 weeks past the 45 day return period. She gave me a number for the manufacturer.

                                I use these for monitoring while recording. Bought two pairs on the SDOTD and am not disappointed at all with them.

                                  Can't beat the price for Stupid Deal of the Day, but too much bass for my primary purpose of listening to TV & movies. Watching the news, voices are muffled. Good construction, I've only had them for a month but they seem like they'll last a long time. They're just barely big enough for my average size ears, so probably not for above average size ears. Lightweight considering the bass they put out. Cord is plenty long, but not too long. Comfortable enough for long binge listening to music, but too bass heavy for binge watching, voices are muffled.

                                    Not at all flat as they are pretty bass heavy but would great for studio tracking just don't mix on them

                                    At the list price, this headphone would would be a poor value. Given the bargain price from Musician's Friend, I gave it two stars.
                                    I compared the MPH-1 to an inexpensive AKG headphone from Musician's friend. The AKG was so much better that I haven't bothered to use the MPH-1 again.
                                    Sound from the MPH-1 was, at best, mediocre. Detail seemed to be lost in the headphones. They sounded more like the inexpensive ear buds you get as an afterthought with a mobile phone.
                                    Delivery from Musician's Friend was quick, as usual.

                                      Long cord to reach to where you need it, And, the 1/8" to 1/4" adapter is very good quality and screws on and off.
