For decades, the Akai Professional MPC has been the industry-standard tool for beat-making, sampling, and sequencing — the go-to hardware for crafting platinum hits that has literally enabled the creation of entirely new genres of music. MPC Headphones embody the same no-shortcuts approach, incorporating premium technologies and precise engineering to give you the the power to produce every track with precision.
Featuring iconic Akai Professional build quality and audio detail, MPC Headphones were designed to be a powerful tool for audio production in the recording studio. Custom 50mm drivers with neodymium magnets reproduce your tracks with ease so you can make confident decisions about each element of your music. Hear the simultaneous thump and snap of a kick drum. Hone in on the crackle of the snare. Blend layers of samples while making crucial adjustments to the vocal to make it pop–truly a microscope for your music.
The overstuffed ear pads function as a soundproof booth, blocking out ambient noise so you can focus on your craft. MPC Headphones contain "bleed" from click-tracks or headphone mixes, which will help maintain a purer signal captured by adjacent microphones, such as vocals & acoustic instruments. Zone-in and create in the most comfortable studio working environment...your head.
Gunmetal aluminum and steel construction was purpose-built for the rigors of use in the studio. Sturdy enough for every-day use, yet lightweight enough for all-day use, MPC Headphones blend luxurious comfort with robust durability.
Equipped with 1/4-inch (6.3mm) and 1/8-inch (3.5mm) connections, you can be sure that no matter what the audio source, you will be able to connect to it.
