Two words that come to mind when describing the Yamaha's to me are layering and texture, if you own them or get to listen to then you'll know what I mean. Really happy these are getting the attention they deserve
post #16862 of 32896

dear bhazardi know i know...your wallet will hate you, but your ears brain and heart will thank you. I'm down to eight dollars till end of month cause

i bought these Yamahas, but they are better than food.....or gas...they are head-fi  essential super nutrients for the soul and

the future of listening.....enjoy....i am not exaggerating nor is ds or danny how good these Yamahas are...stunning...and continuing to improve with

every few hours of playing  ....Paul Simon just started sounding like Paul Simon instead of a digital voice....remarkable...down side, i don't want to do much

else today except listen to these........off my computer...musicallly as satisfying as my Apogee Divas. or Zu Soul Superflys. ...and thats amazing....and

all I've had today is two cups of coffee and some chai....

Thanks Danny Boi, its your groundbreaking listening enthusiasm and DS's ears into sound and encouragement that

motivated me to spend my currently last dollars on these Yamahas.   its hard to put the sound

experience into words, but we all do our best.  you know, i play around with 50K systems (mostly used stuff), six foot tall Divas

massive Krell amps, etc, and to have this glorious accurate and musically faithful experience come out of these phones is miraculous...

having heard a bunch of these artists  live, thati am testing these phones on live, i am stunned by their ability to convey that musical

truth and emotional experience...thank you for insisting we really listen to these remarkable and yet inexpensive phones...

I'm really glad I've been around Ds long enough to build up some sort of immunity to his siren-like call to buy things. Otherwise my wallet would be crashing into the rocks of debt.

Oh, it's really simple! All you have to do is [redacted], then just turn it around and [redacted] before you finalize the [redacted]. Before you know it you'll be [redacted] and free from the discovery cycle!

Yep, but as The Box said before "we shouldn't all be listening to the same item..." that seems to stifle actually discovery.

GREAT NEWS: YAMAHAS are better than anyone has right to expect...

heres my experience after 12 hours with the YAMAHAS: one night of burn in through computer and dragonfly DAC through iFI power stabilizer:

my roommate Silver, a guitarist songwriter, listening to  Mark Knophler's album Privateering, disc 1, song 1 Rosebud, begins to smile

at vocal lead...then when lead guitar comes in BEGINS TO CRY from ecstatic experience with quality of sound.  when song is over

says "oh my GOD, " and walks away stunned....  my experience is similar.....these phones have an sound quality (and comfort) that

puts out a field of sound way bigger than their size or price and indeed are PRICELESS for the accuracy and emotion stirring experience

that they convey. true for blues as well, Steve Miller was never so blue....on electronica still needs more burn in for Ott audio pyrotechnics to

be coherent, but still excellent.....  if you care about the quality of your sound do yourself a favor and grab one of these phones

for yourself or loved ones of the holidaze... they are a TRUE DISCOVERY.  this is not hype.  this is the report back from the edge of ECSTATIC LISTENING. these things are performing at the level of my best headphones...they have the liquid mids of the RS1s, the bass and sub bass is right on, the soundstage of my w1000s, and rhythm of my es700s, all integrated into a single sub100$ phone.  I begin to laugh when it think about what these will be after a full burn in....too good to be true, except its not...these are the real deal and more....and the comfort of the velour pads is spot on...kudos to YAMAHAs sound engineers...and this discovery thread for discovering these....Knophlers harmonica is making my head turn in circles now....but the voices and liquid guitar are making me almost weep with joy....im hearing the emotions the artist was conveying not just the sounds,   and isn't that what high end audio is all about...

I'm assuming this is the HPH-200 you're talking about, correct? Amazon says mine shipped, expected arrival listed as between tomorrow and Tuesday...now I'm psyched (love DS, but like to hear that others share the ecstatic experiece with a particular headphone, as I don't always hear things the same way).

Drblue, you do have to learn to express yourself though...it's bad to keep things bottled up inside like that, let people know what you REALLY feel!!!! :k701smile:

Truth is these $100 phones have taken over all my listening time when I do have time at home. I grab them every opportunity I can..Don't know if it is how light and comfy they are or if it is because of the sound. Equal helpings of both actually.. I am getting PMs from guys asking me about these and all I can say is. For guys that have never owned a proper open can and want to know what an open can can do for your music..

 

These are perfect to introduce to this type of sound. The reason why many of the top tier cans are open back is because of the way they convey stage. I think with recent advancements in tech, it seems closed cans are gaining in stage realism and expansiveness however once you have a proper open can..You will wonder why you have not tried an open can before..

 

Beyond the openness of the sound it is how these are tuned. There is a very real sound to these cans that seem to truly bring out emotion in your tunes..These are not too finicky of sources but there is a synergistic proponent to this sound. It seems the higher end your sound chain is these cans will reveal just how good or bad your sources are..I get a different sophistication with every source I tried. You know a phone is great when I keep on discovering new aspects of the sound.

 

Ericp.. Your a drum guy...Your gonna love how these render drums...
