Summary: Amazing Headphone! I got this from a deal which only costed me $60 including shipping. What a steal!
I'm a uni student and is very interested in audio and headphones. I currently own the ATH-M50 and the Focal Spirit One which both I enjoy a lot. However, in receiving my HPH-200, I found myself picking up less of my other two headphones.
Pros: Great Sound stage, Extended and thumping Bass, very light clamping on the head, very comfortable
Summary: I've have these in white. They have now been discontinued from the Yamaha range and at the present price of £63 are one of the best headphone bargains I have ever seen. They are an open headphone with the cups having a metal grill and looking somewhat like the Grado SR80e. The headband though is totally different to Grados. It is partly metal inside plastic having a light plastic padding over most of the band. The cups are covered with a very soft velour.
Summary: I've tried these with a broad range of genres (aggrotech, pop, electronicore, drum & bass, classical, industrial rock, dubstep etc), and they reproduce the audio as if the artist/midi monkey is in the same room. So so worth nearly £100 (after p&p). Highly recommended!
Summary: I really like these, I agree with all the good reviews and that is why I bought them. They are very light, very well made and sound great without too much bass emphasis. Only slight negatives, they leak a lot of sound as expected as they are open backed but this benefits the sound, they could also be a little more comfortable but you could say that about most.

To my ears they sound much better and build quality is top notch

Summary: Bought these after reading online reviews on head-fi , so i suppose it was a blind buy. However, these are top quality HI-FI. I bought them to replace some Grado sr60i. To my ears they sound much better and build quality is top notch. Good mids ,treble...and bass is good without being overbearing.Separation and soundstage is superb recommended .
Summary: I've had quite a few pairs of headphones/earphones over the years. These so far have blown everything else I've had literally out of the water. Other reviewers have been exactly spot on - crisp detailed sound with no splashy symbols and no overblown bass. NB. bass should be meaty and tight, not big and overpowering. Vocals are clear and have good detail separation.
Summary: I've used a few really good headphones including Sennheiser HD-580's which play with the big boys in terms of sound performance. Whilst I'm not a die hard audiophile by any means, I've a decent idea what good phones sound like. The Yamaha's come with a 2m extension cable, a 6.3mm gold plated adaptor jack. They are comfy and well made, with good quality cable that without the extension is an ideal length for use with a portable player.
