Conceived and refined in one of the world’s most acclaimed studios, Audeze’s MM-500 is a purpose-built tool that was designed to deliver mixes that consistently translate & capture the emotion that the artist intended to convey. Lighter than the Audeze LCD-X, the MM-500’s sleek & sturdy chassis offers all-day comfort. Be sure to pair it with a top-of-the line amp like our GS-X Mini to hear MM-500 at its best!
Finally, a headphone I can mix records on!

It's 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.
