M&D seem to be very hush about them. I kinda wonder if they are having some production / quality issues with them as I have been checking their website since launch and they have never had any stock ready to ship.
holly... really... is dennon so dead around here that this has been sitting online since the start of June and nobody noticed:
Yes I own them (pro500s). They have a great powerful sound. There is a thread here on them with quite a few people being impressed by them. IMO Yamaha made a mistake of styling them on the beats, so no audiophile wanted to touch them and people who wanted beats bought beats.
Fixed the issue. You can remove the earcup with its rail from the headband and screw / rotate the plastic bit that holds them till its firm.
By the way I really love their sound. Punchy, articulate, textural and the vocals really shine.
Also they are very comfy, I wear super chunky glasses and they don't even touch each other.
Does anyone know if you can swivel the ear cups like on the DT1350s in this image:
I can swivel mine like that, but when I straighten them up they start swivelling really easily. I don't know how to "lock" them back into position... if that is at all possible. The store I got them from said I can take them back, but if I am doing something wrong I would like to know.
