The Highest Quality Portable Sound

When it comes to high-end audio, McIntosh is a brand that gets it right with every product they design.  That’s what makes the company’s MHP1000 headphones so intriguing.  It’s tuned specifically to deliver the same smooth sound you’d expect to hear from McIntosh loudspeakers, but does so with the convenience of a portable design.  And with fine visual touches and craftsmanship abound, these high end McIntosh headphones look and feel as good as they sound! 

A Unique Driver System

In order to give the MHP1000 a super clean and detailed sound, McIntosh incorporated Tesla Technology (Beyerdynamic, Germany) with its own six-layer voice coil and speaker diaphragm. The larger area afforded by the Tesla ring magnet gives the overall driver mechanism greater acoustic output and amazingly clean sound.  The system’s closed-back design and bass port enclosure further improves bass performance, resulting in a frequency response capable of reaching an incredible 5Hz!  That means you’ll enjoy the deepest depths of your favorite music and a soundstage that’s wide and immersive, all with very low audible distortion. 

McIntosh Compatibility

The MHP1000 driver design carries a 200 Ohm load that’s compatible with any McIntosh headphone output, current or legacy.  That translates into total integration with your preferred McIntosh system, making the MHP1000 a great choice for those enthusiasts looking for no-hassle hook-up. The MHP1000 pairs especially well with the MHA150 headphone amplifier

It Even Looks Like a McIntosh

McIntosh aficionados will be happy to see the MHP1000 looks the part.  Much like other members of the company’s famous products, this headphone has styling that’s distinctive to the brand.  McIntosh even managed to draw from its famous blue meter glow by making included cables and select leather stitching blue.  The ear cups also have a resemblance to the knobs found on the company’s famous amps. 

Luxurious Fit and Finish

When a headphone looks good, you want it to feel good.  Not only did McIntosh design the MHP1000 to stay secure with minimal pressure, it also chose luxurious materials that feel great to the touch.  The headphone’s soft leather headband and large ear pads, along with lightweight construction, make long listening sessions relaxing and comfortable. 

A World-Class Name in Audio

McIntosh is a true power player in the audio industry, and a name that audiophiles around the world associate with excellence and quality.  With 45 years of design experience in the loudspeaker segment, the company has perfected a signature sound that’s transparent and accurate to source material.  McIntosh still handcrafts each of its spectacular audio components in Binghamton, NY, with an unwavering commitment to delivering the best audio experience possible that only a pair of McIntosh headphones can . 

Don't Settle for Less

The MHP1000 delivers superior performance in the categories that matter most: comfort and sound.  McIntosh spared no expense making it feel comfortable on the head, and the headphone’s sound is pure McIntosh.  The fact that it’s designed to integrate with any available McIntosh equipment is a usability bonus that audiophiles will appreciate.
