Product Information

For 50 years, Mark Levinson has been known for setting the highest standards in audio reproduction, encouraging the discovery of and appreciation for music as artists intended it to be heard. The same details, nuances, and intricacies that have propelled Mark Levinson’s reference sound for five decades were inspirations in designing the No. 5909 headphone, which allows for music enthusiasts in motion to unlock a new layer of sound, whether it’s the slightest breath an artist takes before the chorus, or a hidden harmony discovered for the first time.

Built for passionate listeners who desire a more meaningful relationship with music and the ability to explore their curiosities outside the confines of their homes, the Mark Levinson No. 5909 is the perfect packable for inquisitive travelers and audiophiles.

Crafted with luxury comfort and beautiful design in mind, the No. 5909 is constructed from premium materials including core aluminum components, a leather headband, and replaceable leather ear cushions that ensure listening solace for years to come. These sophisticated wireless headphones stay connected to entertainment for longer durations of time with up to 34 hours of playback time and 30 hours with Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation turned on. Durable and lightweight for travel, the headphone comes with an accompanying hard-shell carrying case that also discretely stores cables and an airplane adaptor.

The No. 5909 delivers reference-quality sound via 40mm Beryllium coated drivers that have been expertly tuned to the HARMAN Curve and designed by the same world-class sound engineers behind Mark Levinson’s renowned amplifiers, turntables, and streaming players. Audio performance meets the stringent standards for Hi-Res Audio certification indicating the inclusion of the LDAC audio codec, digital circuitry compatible with 24-bit/96kHz processing, and acoustic response out to 40kHz.

In addition to high-fidelity audio, the headphone is packed with features that music lovers on-the-go will appreciate, including high-resolution wireless connectivity via Bluetooth 5.1 with LDAC, AAC, and aptX™ Adaptive technologies, a four-microphone array with Smart Wind Adaption for crystal clear phone calls, Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation with three modes for premium sound isolation, and a selectable Ambient Aware mode for situational awareness. Along with the hard-shell travel case, a complete assortment of cables and accessories is provided including a 1.25m USB-C charging cable, a USB-C to USB-A adaptor, 1.25m and 4m USB-C to 3.5mm audio cables, a 3.5mm to 6.3mm audio adaptor, an airplane audio adaptor, and a microfiber polishing cloth.

No Compromises!
Just got my pair from world wide stereo yesterday and I love them! The mic quality in Teams meetings today was great. Switching from streaming high quality Tidal music via my phone to taking virtual meetings on my laptop was completely seamless. Sound quality, build quality, and comfort are outstanding. I listen to Sennheiser HD800S headphones at home and these are the closest I've ever heard from a wireless solution. Cannot recommended enough! Yes there are decent options for 1/3 the price out there, but save yourself the trouble of buying 2-3 different pairs over time that have varying strengths and weaknesses and just get these with no compromises. You deserve them!

ATTENTION ALL Audiophiles!
Highly recommend these headphones! I was hesitant at first because of the price but decided to "pin my ears back" and order them. One of the best decisions I've made regarding headphones. I already own a slew of headphones (bose 700, sony wh1000xm4, and apple airpods max), but the 5909 are hands down the best sounding I've heard. The bluetooth is as close to lossless as you can get, sounding another level better than the airpods max. then when you use them wired sound is even better. GREAT build quality and just about any cable you may need to connect to anything is included. What more could an audiophile ask for? :-)
