Yamaha was kinda asking for it. If you've seen a Yamaha Pro in real life, you would also not be able to ignore the fact that they look almost exactly like Beats. The plastic construction, tri-fold design, the headband cushion and the brackets that surround it, and the stainless steel headband extensions all look like they were taken straight from the Beats. Strangely enough, the Beats have a higher build quality than the Yamahas. At least Beats took the effort to use stainless steel brackets on either side of the headband cushion. If you compare the Beats Solo's headband extensions to the Yamaha's, you'll notice that the Solos use a much sturdier steel, but leave the cable exposed.
