Great Headphones

Griff the Band Geek, Yamaha
16 June 2014
  • Summary: I have had this Product for half a year, and the only thing that bothers me is that when I have my glasses on after a while my ears hurt, but lately I have not been having that problem(probably because the cups got broken in).
  • Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Uncomfortable

Amazing Doesn't Do Them Justice

Daniel R., Newegg
27 September 2013
  • Summary: I paired these headphones with an asus essence stx sound card. I strongly recommend doing this as it adds so much to the experience.
  • Pros: Clear perfect audio. I was hearing things in my games that I've never heard before. Sounds were so accurate and acute. Nothing was overly bass heavy and it handled 8 channels with ease.
  • Cons: They are a bit heavy and not the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn.

  • 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: 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 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

Great Sound, Poor Fit!

FMColton, Yamaha
11 May 2013
  • Summary: They are heavy on the head and are too big, I cannot adjust the headband any smaller so the ear cups rest all the weight on the top of my ears making them uncomfortable even for short periods of time.
  • Pros: Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Headband Too Large, Heavy, Squeezes Too Tight, Uncomfortable

Awesome sound quality

  • Summary: Ive never have heard music with such a high quality. I listen symphonic rock such as Pink Floyd and I cant belive how well the instruments are heard. Best buy I have ever did.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish

The best portable Hi-End headphones, only 23 Ohm of resistance - my SG3 drives those easy, no PowerAmp pre-amp boost is needed
