I use these headphones for my drum practices, playing mp3s through my phone and accompanying them. The sound quality is excellent, the ear pads are comfortable, and the headband does not slip off my head (often even adjustable headbands are too big for me). After reading several reviews, I came to the conclusion that there is a quality control problem with these headphones and you might get great ones or defective ones. The price made it worth the risk, but I also listened to them in the store to make sure that the ones I got were manufactured correctly.

I got these on sale, and they are not even worth that price. Two major problems (at least on my pair): 1) The right side develops a really annoying rattle sound during deep bass notes, and 2) The cups are round and small, and (not to say I have big ears or anything) my ears do not fit inside completely, leaving impressions on both ear lobes. I thought the sound problem would disappear after some breaking-in, but it is not happening. 'Will be returning these for something else. Very disappointed.

        Not true studio headphones on multiple levels

        By Daniel

        from undisclosed

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Marantz MPH-1 Professional Studio Headphones:

        Negaitives:
        -These are not studio headphones so the product is a lie
        -They do not have a flat frequency response. Bass is enhanced and treble is muffled.
        -The input connector is molded. Which normally is not acceptable for studio headphones, however, in this case, it's beyond unacceptable, as the audio cuts in and out from the slightest movement of the connector to any angle. You will read this elsewhere, and, it is true.
        -The cans are not the proper size. You may think, "I don't have big ears", well, I don't either. And, I'm an audio engineer, and, these are not the proper size. They are not half size, or 3/4 size, they are designed to fit over your ears entirely, but are just slightly too small in (I'm guessing) 95% of cases. I have never experienced this issue in any of my other actual pairs of studio headphones or the plethora I've used at various studios.

        Pros:
        -Price - but only worth if it if you want to solder a new connector. Which, I probably will.
        -Decent materials on 75% of the product just not where it counts.

        Conclusion:
        I think that for the materials you get at the highly discounted rate it's an ok 'deal'. But the design is so poor where it counts it's hard to say. In any case, if you are looking for studio headphones, do not buy these, because they are not. Using these would produce terrible mixes with no bass (as enhanced) and excessive treble (as attenuated).

            Comments about Marantz MPH-1 Professional Studio Headphones:

            The quality of these earphones is excellent and surprisingly -- the cheap price was not indicative of cheap-quality. They are powerful and produce a clean, clear sound. So much so that, the first few times I used them, I found myself taking them off my ears to verify if the fantastic sound was the result of my guitar-amp which they were hooked up to -- or just the earphones themselves. It was the latter !!
            Surely getting these for such a great price was the result of a careless pricing error -- or a devil-may-care promotional stunt.

            Works fine sounds great even the low notes from my Bass going through the mixer sounds good. No pop, buzz or bottoming out of the coil when I pop strings. My only reason for the 4 stars is after an hour of practice my ears hurt from the pressure. No way to reduce the squeeze.
