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

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.
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!
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.
Summary: The packaging really states quality. The heaviness of the box and the elegance of the packaging really portrays quality. The sound quality is the best I have ever heard. When I first received the headphones I tried them in my RX-V673 receiver and was amazed with the quality. It was all there, the crisp high tones to the deep bass. I am a frequent traveler and a heavy user of the Bose QC15 headphones as are most business travelers.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
Summary: I was very anxious to hear these as Yamaha has not had a alternative to the many consumer offerings currently offered. I was definitely not disappointed the sound is even and clear perfect distribution of mids,lows and highs outstanding clarity I am hearing things in songs I have never noticed before in songs I have listened to all my life.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Great Sound, Outstanding Clarity, Stylish
Summary: These headphones have now taken the place of several other models for me. In recording, travel, and easy-listening, Yamaha's PRO500 headphones fit each of the needs, perfectly. Great design, and fabulous sound. Happy I made the investment.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
Summary: The Yamaha PRO 500 headphones deliver smooth frequency response, with clean crisp mids and great bass response. Perfect for listening to any portable audio device. Also work well for recording and videography monitoring applications.
Pros: Clean Crisp Mids, Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Smooth frequency response, Stylish
