        Are ATH-PRO500MK2 only being produce in China?

        I have search that ATH-PRO500MK2 are made in China?
        Does Audio-Technica has release a version of ATH-PRO500MK2 that is made in Japan?
        Does it mean that even I will buy a ATH-PRO500MK2 in a authorized dealer it is still original even it is made in China?

        1 answer

        • A:

          The ATH-PRO500MK2 Professional DJ Monitor Headphones are made in China. However, if purchasing from a dealer located in the United States, the headphones should also ship directly from a United States location, in order to ensure the utmost quality and authenticity.

          Thanks!

      • Q:

        I realize the cord is detachable, but is it replaceable?

        Would I be able to purchase a spare 3.5mm-to-3.5mm short cord in case something happens to the stock cord? I like that it's detachable, but I believe it screws in, which presumably implies that not just any 3.5mm auxiliary cord will be compatible with it.

        • A:

          The replacement/spare cables for the ATH-PRO500MK2 and ATH-PRO700MK2 are available through the Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) Parts Department at parts@atus.com .

          Thanks!

      • Q:

        Could you please direct me toward some velour replacement earpads?

        I would really love to purchase these headphones, but pleather/leather-like material makes my ears overheat. Could you please direct me toward more breathable velour earpads that would fit the Pro500mk2? I also wear glasses, so finding earpads that offer more cushion is a necessity. But I specifically want the Pro500mk2s because of their portability, durability, sound, and price point.

        • A:

          Unfortunately, Velour Ear Pads are not available for Audio-Technica DJ Headphones, such as the PRO500MK2.

          Because of this, you might want to have a look at the following headphones that feature velvet-like fabric earpads:
          - ATH-AD500X
          - ATH-AD700
          - ATH-AD700X
          - ATH-AD900X

          Thanks!

      • Q:

        how is pro500mk2 clamping compare to pro700mk2?

        hi i just tried pro700mk2 and like its clamping strength. i feel its perfect for me (im 165cm skinny guy with small head). sadly the shop does not have pro500mk2 so i cant try.
        can you confirm 100% that pro500 clamping and headband size is the same as pro700? i have to set the headband to the smallest on pro700 to fit my head.

        pro700 is too expensive for me so i can only afford pro500 but i dont want it to slip on my head if the headband is too big or clamping is weaker than pro700.

        thanks so much.

        • A:

          The headphone-band size on the PRO700MKII is the same for the PRO500MKII. Therefore, the "clamping" will be the same.

      • Q:

        Just to make sure, are they OVER-the-ear or ON-the-ear

        I want to make sure that they completely cover the ear, not lie on the ear itself

      • Q:

        can you replace the ear pads on the pro500mk2 with the ear pads on the pro700mk2?
        Asked on 3/20/2013 by joshheisey

        1 answer

        • A:

          The ONLY ear-pads that will work with the PRO500MK2 are the stock earpads for the PRO500MK2.

          Therefore, the ear-pads from the PRO700MK2 will NOT work/fit with the PRO500MK2.

          Thanks!

      • Q:

        Are these headphones strong and comforatable?

        Does the build quality and comfort of these headphones match or compare to that of the ATH-M50's? Can you rate the comfort and the build quality of the ATH-PRO500MK2BK's out of 10 for me?
        Thank you!

          Thank you for your inquiry. The answer to your questions is very subjective. They quality of sound and build are very similar. As to which a user may like best is again subjective.
