What McIntosh have to say about the MHP1000 

The McIntosh-designed headphone driver in the new MHP1000 has been carefully engineered to complement any current or legacy McIntosh headphone amplifier, plus a wide range of third-party electronics.

The MHP1000 has been voiced to deliver a smooth yet transparent, full-bodied, non- fatiguing output, and is both supremely comfortable and easy to listen to over long periods. Its closed-back, circumaural design eliminates external noise and distractions for a fully immersive personal listening experience.

Its clever design has produced an ergonomic, lightweight headphone that requires minimal pressure to secure them on the head and ear, permitting all-day (or all-night!) comfort for those longer, relaxed listening sessions. The ear pads and headband feature a premium, natural soft leather for luxurious comfort.

Two detachable cables are also included: a 1-metre lead with a 3.5mm stereo connector, plus a 3-metre cable with a 6.3mm (1/4-inch) stereo connector. Both cables feature high- quality gold-plated McIntosh custom-designed connectors and shielded wiring for the best possible sound quality.
