These headphones are very high quality, studio grade cans with superior design and construction over earlier models. They present a solid music performance across the sound spectrum with solid bass, clear mid-range and sizzling high end. The bass is not muddy, but so solid that you "feel" the bass to the lowest level. The nuance of the sound reveals articulate details, and separation between instruments in the music that you will not hear with lesser headphones.

I have a variety of songs I have recorded in the past that came alive with sound I had not heard before, either through speakers or headphones and I was really impressed. I have been an audiophile for over 40 years with top flight stereo gear, and a home studio and these cans are simply the best sounding headphones I have ever owned.

The construction of these phones are superior over the plastic hinges of the earlier models so they have no vulnerable break points in the headset. The high tech metals used in theses cans is lightweight and strong. They do a very good job of sound isolation and are very comfortable.

I bought these cans on March 3, 2018 and I put my other phones in a box. Done with them...

I highly recommend these headphones.

As far as a Cheap pair of phones go on stupid deal, they're not bad. But I was expecting so much more than the MPH-2 that were stupid deal for the same price a week earlier. The MPH-4 cannot fold, cannot flip out, and the ear cups are smaller than the MPH-2. Sound is about the same and the head band is slightly better than the MPH-2, but it didn't come with the coiled cable that was supposed to be included. This one also doesn't have a detachable cable like the less expensive MPH-2. I suggest saving your money and getting the better pair, the MPH-2, if this were the only two pair you were considering.

    Comments about Marantz MPH-4 50mm Over-Ear Monitoring Headphone:

    Got these as a stupid deal. They are good sounding and very comfortable to wear. The isolation from external sounds is excellent.
    My chief concern with these cans is the chord. Seems a bit flimsy. When is was removing the kinks you could feel the outer jacket moving over the inner conductors.
    If I paid full price would not have been happy about this.

      I bought these for home studio monitoring. The sound is deeper and wider than the Sony MDR7506 pair I own, though not as compact. I like the MPH4 a lot. Good for rough mixing and monitoring synthesizers.

        Comments about Marantz MPH-4 50mm Over-Ear Monitoring Headphone:

        These headphones pretty darn nice. They have a very flat response and don't appear to color what comes out of my small studio at all. Very comfortable. They do have some weight to them but just enough to give a "well made" feel. Cord is long and not coiled so a bit of a pain to handle but not a big deal if/when I decide to be a bit more organized.

              Comments about Marantz MPH-4 50mm Over-Ear Monitoring Headphone:

              These headphones are very high quality, studio grade cans with superior design and construction over earlier models. They present a solid music performance across the sound spectrum with solid bass, clear mid-range and sizzling high end. The bass is not muddy, but so solid that you "feel" the bass to the lowest level.

              Nice, Neutral, Great for Mixes !!!
              I am making this review after just a meager 7 hour burn in process. The Sonic characteristics are Superb. Very Accurate Imaging, Sound spectrum, and Crossovers are in just the right place for these Closed pair of cans.
              Bass is warm, punchy and accurate ( NOT Over-powering- very nice little bump around the 68 hz range then bass reseeds naturally. Mids and Highs are surprisingly well positioned ( especially for something in this price range!) I'll really get to hear them in another 40-50 hours of opening up with burn in ( various Professional sonic frequencies for burn in... )
              Nice Build quality, The LEATHER Headband is a nice touch and the vented underside is especially nice. Very comfy and nice balanced weight. ZERO complaints, these aren't cans like I have in the 1K range- didn't buy them for that. Great for tracking, quiet closed cans... GRAB them...
              Marantz put just the right touch on these... Well done for the price !

              Comments about Marantz MPH-4 50mm Over-Ear Monitoring Headphone:

              Don't be confused by the "4" rating. These are very good. Extremely comfortable. Comparison to Sony-MDR-V600 is good but not quite as bright in the upper freqs, has a little more bass inflection than the Sony. Compared to MPH-2, the MPH-4 is much brighter in the higher end, and a little more muddy than the 4. Value-wise the MPH-4 is a good buy - and extremely comfortable. The MPH-2 has a removable cord that presumably can be replaced when the cord goes bad. Neither the Sony nor MPH-4 have removable cords. Bottom line - if you want to simply listen to music, you'll love these.
