  • Great Value in a Compelling New Generation of Headphone

    The counterintuitive reason why Grover sometimes gets better mixes on the Audeze MM-500 over the more detailed LCD-5 might just be what recommends these wonderful new planar magnetics to the music-first audiophile.

    Grover breaks down the MM-500 for you, and as always, has recommended amp pairings as well.

Audeze MM-500 Classic Planar Magnetic Headphones

Comfortable studio reference monitors

Featuring extra-plush premium leather earpads, an adjustable spring steel headband, and a machined aluminum structure, the MM-500 feels substantial yet lightweight. Just like Audeze's flagship headphones, the MM-500 is hand-crafted in its Southern California workshop to provide years of reliable comfort.

The MM-500’s planar magnetic drivers provide realism that audio professionals and high-fidelity enthusiasts can’t live without. With lightning-fast transients, accurate frequency response, and trusted mix translation powered by Audeze’s patented innovations, the MM-500 produces unparalleled audio quality that other headphones can only dream of.
