  • Summary: I wan't really looking to buy the Yamaha Pro 500s. But I saw them on an Amazon lightning deal for $150 and decided what the heck. Overall, this headphone competes well in the $200 to $250 price range, and would be good for those looking for bassy signature. Here are some random thoughts about them.
  • Pros: Plenty of bass for those who like that, good clarity, spacious sound
  • Cons: Too pricey at full MSRP, warm/dark sound signature may not be for some, fit/comfort

  • Summary: Been looking for some new closed headphones, with only three at the moment and for some time in fact. Good ones, though: Sony MDR Z1000, Sony MDR 7520, and Senn Amperiors, Sometimes you just need closed headphones. The hot closed headphone right now, already a FOTM, is the Focal Spirit Pro.
  • Pros: Clarity, listenability, smoothness, soundstage
  • Cons: Fit/comfort

  • Summary: I was looking for a cheap and cheerful, fun sounding closed can for listening at my computer at work and some limited portable use. I typically listen to EDM in this setting and had been using the Shure 840s.
  • Pros: Very easy to drive with a fun EQ
  • Cons: Headband hurts and they look like a Beats rip off

  • Summary: Note: Ok, so I took time to write a couple of things regarding these guys. This is mostly "preliminary" as I'm one of those that feel sound signature grows once you give a lot of listening time to gear. Anyway, mini review. Introduction: THIS HOBBY SUCKS!!! You read this right!
  • Pros: Impactful sound, bass extension and impact is present, feels sturdy, good accessories.
  • Cons: Bass overpowers lower mids (quantity is too much), puts pressure on top of the head, they are HUGE!
