Top-level performance

Step up your listening. No matter what sound you're pumping through your MC-450s, you'll be able to hear it with incredible clarity and depth. Inside the precision-crafted open-back ear cups, you'll find a pair of high-headroom 42mm transducers that deliver detailed, distortion-free audio across the entire audible frequency spectrum (20Hz to 20kHz).

The open-back design of the MC-450s provides you with an ultra-wide soundstage with exceptional clarity, revealing every detail and nuance. This makes them perfect for critical listening and mixing, allowing you to exterminate or accentuate any aspect of your sound as you see fit. And it all sounds natural and organic too, making the MC-450s ideal for hi-fi listening as well.
