Open-back planar magnetic over-ear headphones designed in collaboration with award-winning producer/mixer Manny Marroquin specifically to deliver mixes that consistently translate well with virtually all audio interfaces or consoles

MFR# 100-MM-1030-01

Product Description

Conceived and refined in one of the world’s most acclaimed studios, the The Audeze MM-500 is a purpose-built tool designed to deliver mixes that consistently translate and capture the emotion the artist intended. Lighter than the famous LCD-X, the MM-500’s sleek and sturdy chassis offers all-day comfort. Step up to the headphone used to mix Kendrick Lamar's #1 album "Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers" at Larrabee Studios: the Audeze MM-500.

A SERIOUS TOOL FOR EVERY SITUATION

The MM-500 is designed to suit the requirements of long daily listening sessions under almost any condition. World-class studio monitor? Check. Quick reference on-the-go? No problem. Deep late-night listening? Done. With its ease of drive, comfortable fit and trustworthy sound, you can count on the MM-500 to deliver in every situation.

THE LIFESTYLE OF HEADPHONE LISTENING

You need to hear everything at its most natural and pure – exactly when you need it – anywhere, anytime. Manny knows the importance of headphone listening in today’s world: studio to stage, cafe to beachfront, canal to jetway, the MM-500 is the reference to the soundtrack of your life.

ELEGANCE, COMFORT AND DURABILITY

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 their Southern California workshop to provide years of reliable comfort in a package that calls out to be held, admired and listened to.

ELEVATE YOUR PROFESSIONAL AUDIO GAME

Offering studio-quality sound, always within reach, the MM-500 is truly the next level of performance in pro audio. Whether you’re stepping up from our own LCD-X or from another brand, the MM-500 will be as much a part of your life as your favorite pair of sneakers.

AWARD-WINNING AUDEZE TECHNOLOGY

The MM-500’s planar magnetic drivers provide realism that audio professionals like Manny “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.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
