Yamaha YH-100


Pros: Sound so smooth in mids and bass. Respond well to EQ

Cons: The need to mod with felt. Rolled off highs. NEED POWER

There is a warm detailed sound to these. I feel more immersed in the atmosphere of the recording.  You need LOTS of power to get the YH100 to sound its best. It seems (at least to my ears) to need a smile EQ with more emphasis on the highs. Everything sounds clear and effortless. MAAD BASS as well. The bass extension is unlike anything I've heard to date. I wonder what the mod for these sounds like. With some EQ'ing, these sound awesome. The highs are there btw.... waiting to be unleashed. I can crank the bass up to levels as high as any basshead could ever want with no distortion. Transient response is good across all frequencies. The highs are detailed, yet rolled off, and need EQing or damping. As long as EQing does it for me, ill just let these remain unmodded.
