Great Headphones

Griff the Band Geek, Adorama

  • Excerpt: 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). I would not recommend bringing them to school, not because of the fact they cost so much but the fact that they are inconvenient to carry around when not being used.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Uncomfortable

Great Headphones without the Hype

yjt, Adorama

  • Excerpt: If you are looking to make a fashion statement then by all means go get yourself a pair of the worst sounding, worst build quality headphones with the best hype out there aka Beats Pro. <br /><br />On the other hand, if you want a great sound experience that will last try a pair of the Yamaha's. The range of these cans is awesome. Don't have any of the tinny too much base nonsense that are Beats.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound

  • 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.   I set out to buy a pair, they were out of stock all over. Pretty much.   So I'm reading reviews, looking at Amazon and elsewhere, and I see these Yamaha's.
  • Pros: Clarity, listenability, smoothness, soundstage
  • Cons: 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. At first they squeezed too tightly as well but after a while of over stretching the band I was able to get them to soften up. The sound quality at least is amazing, worth the price for sound but very far off the price mark for comfort.
  • Pros: Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Headband Too Large, Heavy, Squeezes Too Tight, Uncomfortable
