McIntosh's first ever pair of headphones were first seen at CES 2014 back in January. They're now available to buy in the UK.

The MHP1000 over-ear headphones have been designed to reproduce the "legendary McIntosh sound" and feature a custom-designed driver which claims to complement existing McIntosh headphone amplifiers. 

The drivers in question feature a 40mm, three-layer compound diaphragm with a "viscoelastic centre layer".

McIntosh says the headphones deliver "a smooth yet transparent, full-bodied, non-fatiguing" sound, with the soft leather ear pads and headband shelping to to fulfil that "non-fatiguing" promise.  

A closed-back design should also ensure external noise is kept to a minimum.

The McIntosh MHP1000 headphones come supplied with two detachable cables: a 1m with a 3.5mm connector and a 3m with 6.3mm connector. Both cables benefit from custom-designed gold-plated connectors and shielding.
