Mackie Expands MC Series Headphone Lineup

Mackie introduced the MC-350 and MC-450 professional headphones, both offering full range 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response but in open and closed back designs.

Both Mackie models offer rugged design with premium leather adjustable headbands and conforming ear pads to provide an ergonomic fit.

The MC-350 headphones feature a closed-back design for superior sound isolation, making them the right choice for mixing, studio recording and focused critical listening when the user wants to avoid background noise and leakage.

The MC-350’s enclosure delivers accurate bass, enhanced high frequency detail and a wide soundstage. Their 50 mm transducers provide plenty of low end. Impedance is rated at 32 ohms and sensitivity at 97 dB.

The MC-450 headphones have an open-back design for a wider, deeper soundstage. They offer reduced ear fatigue, high headroom, smooth midrange and exceptional detail and clarity. They’re a superior choice for audiophiles who want the most natural, accurate sound and for mixing in a quiet environment.

The MC-450 features 42 mm transducers, and its impedance is rated at 54 ohms and sensitivity at 101 dB.

Both new MC Series models come with premium cables with locking bayonet connectors, including a 9.8-foot fabric-jacketed straight cable, a four-foot straight cable and a four-foot straight cable with phone control and microphone. Each has a 1/8-inch connector and comes with a gold-plated ¼-inch adapter and a premium protective case.
