YAMAHA YH-5M pictorial - "Form follows function" - Page 2

Thank you for quoting Frank Lloyd Wright. He loved Japan.

gorgeous design, looks a little fragile: the exposed jagged metal for adjustment may easily bend when over drawn.

I think AKG is closer to this rather than Grado or Audiotechnica, but still there is a gap. Could be planars are different.

Thank you for the comment.
Yes, that is one of reason I choose his quote.
In fact, FL Wright is the farther of Japan modern architect. A part of his Imperial Hotel is still preserved as a heritage.
As a weekend photographer, I like modern architect and I like his works.
When I went to Chicago, I visited his remaing studio at Oak Park. That was a nice experience

These cans are a work of art. Do you use them in public?
(with an mp3-player? does that work and does it sound ok?)

This is not mainly intended for use in outdoor, cable is 8 feet long and terminated with 1/4 plug.
But it's possible, I will try but I need some courage

Is the plug on the YH5M not like the YHD series? The 1/8th plug fits inside the 1/4" - it looks like a single plug but if you hold the rubber part at the back and pull, it separates. The plug for the YHD is metal while all the other yamaha plugs I have come across ( YH1000 all the way through the YH3 ) are a single moulded plastic.

Wear them proudly ..dB

My YHD-1's plug is plastic

I will take a picture of the YHD2 plug and post it - I just presumed it was a standard for the more "portable looking" - their impedance is not conducive to direct drive from a portable device and after damping, their efficiency is even less so. The low impedance and high efficiency of the YH5M is perfect IMHO ..dB

I'll post of picture of the YHD-1's plug too.

Edit: This was kind of OT, so I reposted the rest of my post in the main ortho thread. Hard to keep track of what thread I'm in sometimes.
