Yamaha PRO Headphones. - Page 7

post #91 of 477

Here's a quick size comparison.

Nice! They look better in your "real" photograph than online pics and yes, they are big, but that's okay.  After you have some time with them, my question would be if the differences between M-100 and PRO 500 are enough to justify an additional headphone purchase, so I look forward to hearing what those differences are or, if the M-100 turns out to be comparable or superior in some ways.

Sure they're both new, and the M100's only have about 48 hours on them.

Ok, I just disconnected my TTVJ Slim amp, and I'm driving them straight out of my note II at about 75%, and they are VERY loud. The bass also slams with authority.gs1000.gif

Thanks for the link.  From the description, they sound like an M-100 with forward mids.

If you can compare them with your Amperiors and DT 1350s I would appreciate that as well. Also if there was a headphone you would say sounds most natural to your ears, which is it? Thanks in advance. Btw great amp!

I'm going to need some help from other owners, but the Amperiors are definitely the brightest and have the narrowest soundstage out the four headphones mentioned. I would say the Beyer DT-1350's sound the most natural to me and go the deepest. The Yamaha Pro 500's have some mid bass coloration as mentioned earlier, and the M100's have pronounced bass.

They're big and heavy, which is why I'm also going to keep the M100's, just the right size and weight for me.

Thanks very much.  I'm looking more for portable use, so these may not be for me especially if the M-100 are on a similar level sonically.

Got my replacements back today...hooray! Really strange, they don't seem as heavy or as uncomfortable as before too.
