Audeze, the leading audio technology brand and premium headphone manufacturer, today announces their newest headphone made in collaboration with 17-time Grammy-winning engineer/producer Manny Marroquin. The MM-100 features Audeze’s latest planar magnetic driver design, and a new lightweight chassis to bring unprecedented levels of quality and reliability to a wide range of audio professionals and enthusiasts. Audeze’s MM-100 is assembled in the U.S.A. and will retail for $399, with first shipments expected in May.

The MM-100 is based on the highly successful MM-500, which has earned praise from acclaimed recording professionals since its debut at NAMM 2022. The MM-100 carries forward the highly regarded tuning from Audeze’s 90mm planar magnetic drivers. These efficient, low-impedance drivers make the MM-100 easy to drive from any console, interface, or laptop. The newly-designed chassis features premium materials but weighs only 375 grams, ensuring comfort over long sessions.

Audeze MM-100 Key Features:

  • Industry-tested and refined by top recording artists at would-famous Larrabee Studios in Hollywood
  • Carefully tuned for accuracy across the audible frequency spectrum to deliver consistent results professionals can rely on
  • Audeze’s Uniforce™ diaphragms, Fazor™ waveguides and Fluxor™ Magnets provide great clarity with class-leading low distortion, and high efficiency to excel with a wide range of audio equipment and techniques
  • Lightweight, premium chassis with magnesium/aluminum housing, gel-filled leather earpads, suspension strap, and spring-steel headband for long-term durability and comfort; folds flat for storage or travel

“I’m so excited to make studio-quality sound available to a broader audience,” stated Manny Marroquin. “Everyone working in audio needs a headphone they can rely on, inside or outside the studio,” he added.

“The goal of the MM-100 is to set a new standard in headphone performance for a wide range of users,” stated Audeze CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram. “We worked with Manny to ensure that our professional products work optimally in the most demanding situations,” he added.
