Our take on the Mackie MP-220 by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Pro headphones tuned for deep bass
Mackie has made world-class mixers and other live-performance gear for decades. Not only do they know what's important on-stage, they are also on top of musical trends. The MP-220 headphones use a dual driver system in each earpiece to deliver clear, detailed sound for monitoring sound. Since a lot of modern music features deep and complex bass, these headphones have one driver focused on those lower frequencies.
Built for live sound
Things get loud on-stage, and it's crucial to be able to focus on your specific instrument or vocal. These in-ears provide terrific noise isolation for live music events and church worship services. Mackie included several eartip options — three foam, three silicone, and three double-flange tips. You should find a comfortable, secure fit that can block out up to 40dB of external noise.
The headphone cable coils snugly around your ear. This keeps the cord out of your way as you perform and stops sound from escaping and being picked up by live mics.

- Hip Tips About Your Tips
Single Dynamic Driver: The Mackie MP-series professional in-ear monitors are made for live, on-stage performances. The monitors feature molded low-profile enclosures for maximum comfort and bass response. The MP-220 is equipped with dual precision dynamic drivers that provide cleaner performance (over the MP-120) at higher levels. Because two drivers are doing the same job, you get higher efficiency, better details in the high frequencies, and increased bass response. The earphones come with three styles of ear tips in three different sizes, so you can choose what works and fits best in your ears. The MP-220s include a hard molded plastic case to hold your in-ear monitors and ear tips.
Cable: The MP-220 comes with a 59.1" shielded, braided cable that delivers extra durability and sonic performance. It features an over-ear design to keep them securely in your ears, and the cable behind your head and out of the way. The cable is removable and replaceable in case of damage. The cable attaches to the ear buds via a swiveling MMCX connector. The cable is terminated into a right-angled 3.5mm plug.
Accessory Plug: The MP-220 in-ear monitors are designed for use on stage, or for leisure. They include a 3.5mm-to-1/4" adapter so you can use your headphones with your home audio components or professional sound consoles with a 1/4" headphone jack.
Ear Tips: The MP-220 comes with a wide variety of ear tips. The sound isolating tips block ambient noise (up to about 40dB), while ensuring a comfortable and customized fit. A good seal is required for optimal sound isolation and bass response, and maximum comfort for extended wear. The ear tips come in small, medium, and large sizes, in the following styles:
- Silicone: The silicone rubber ear tips are soft and flexible.
- Foam Ear Tips: The soft foam ear tips compress and expand to form a tight seal in your ear canal.
- Double-Flange Ear Tips: The Double-Flange tips are made of soft, silicone rubber with dual flanges of increasing diameter to fit the shape of your ear canal.
Carrying Case: The MP-220s come with a compact, molded, hard plastic carrying case that will protect your in-ear monitors when not in use. This clam-shell style case has a locking closure and a carabiner-style clip for attaching it to other items.
