Monolith M565 Planar Headphones
The Monolith M565 planar headphones are the perfect way to experience your music collection. Based on the Monolith M1060 and featuring a 66mm planar driver, these headphones produce a detailed aural landscape and will resolve all the sonic detail from the best recordings. Spectacular imaging, low distortion, and perfectly balanced sound make the Monolith M565 a true audiophile listening experience.
Planar Driver and Functions
Planar Drivers: Not your typical headphone driver! A planar magnetic driver is a flat membrane that is surrounded by magnets. When current is delivered, the membrane produces sound that has lower distortion, better bass, and pinpoint imaging that is usually not found in your typical headphone driver. The size of the driver in the Monolith M565 is 66mm.
Open Back Design: Instead of an "inside your head" isolated experience that traditional closed-back headphones provide, open-back headphones provide a holographic listening experience. It's as if you're in the middle of a live performance, instead of being closed off from the world.
Removable Earpads: The Monolith M565 has been engineered to be comfortable for extended listening sessions. Large, comfy earpads made of faux leather and a padded headband are designed to keep you comfortable as you listen. However, the supplied earpads are easily removable – pad roll away!

Questions and Answers
Behing honnest there is better Planars than the M565, the M1060 for exemple is better but I guess the designs of these two cans cannot compare in all aspects. As a singular analysis, the M565 looks good, sounds good, can be a traveler or stay at home thanks to its compact design. Now adding in the equation the price, there is no other Planar at such a low price and sounding as good is hard to find. I beleive some will go for the M565 instead of a bigger unit for obvious reasons. The price is indeed incredibly low but this does not mean that the M565 is a cheap unit, on the contrary. Like the M1060 the build quality is of a very good standard and no units at this price tag is build as good. Again the M565 can compete with headphones costing at least 4 times more. Monoprice did it again! The M565 is a hit IMO. It is not just a reduced M1060, it is a portable version that can also be used at home no shame.
Good job Monoprice!
