Great Headphones

Griff the Band Geek, Yamaha

  • 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). 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

  • 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. Although a great headphone the 840’s did not have the low end horse power or staging to show EDM at its best and they are not at all portable.
  • 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.   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

  • 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. Comfort, Fit, & Isolation I can understand the complaints by some people that these headphones are too heavy and uncomfortable.
  • 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. 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

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

  • 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! lol I thought I was done buying headphones for a while as I think I found what I was after with MrSpeakers Mad Dogs and Ultrasone Signature Pros but, as always, new ones come along that you just...
  • 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!

Big Sound - but too Big Fit

JV the Musician, Yamaha
28 January 2013
  • Summary: I live the sound and look. But the fit is actually too large for my head. My ears are either too high or the band does not go small enough. I did have some issues with the iPhone cable fell apart when I caught it on something. Yamaha replaced it right away. That said - they sound incredible and look amazing and are comfy for a medium to large head person.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Gorgeous, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Too Large Fit
