Yamaha, no questions abt that, after burn-in, it sounds incredible with the iFi Nano. The Xbass and 3D both worked wonders with the Yamaha. So glad that I didn't sell it. Pro is also very good but the comfort level is just too low for me.

Even though the 7520 has treble that is slightly south of neutral It is still strong, full, and bold with out the smoothing out of instruments. I misplaced the word edgy on it in me describing it and the mt220 is no exeption to the above as all three possess that quality about them.

Cheers I think I have a fairly accurate sound picture in my head now!

 

Westone e-mailed me about my out of warranty replacement and have offered me a  huge choice of IEM for very cheap....wasn't really expecting that and has changed my plans slightly. I'm thinking of going for UM3 so............hmmmm......need to think about this.......you guys are really selling the Yamahas though but I don't think that would really compliment the UM3. Decision overload : )

Rocking mine right now, listening to Paquito D'Rivera - Portraits of Cuba (Hi-res FLAC) and oh yesssss... sounding excellent!

For grizzlybeast and gelocks: could you describe the difference the alpha pads make? Is it darker and smoother? Thanks.

the alpha pads make them sound a bit more impactful in the bass, a little darker and less forward. The soundstage seems like it has more depth but it could be an illusion. I think it is a worthy upgrade.

Thanks for your reply! Curious to try the Alpha Pads. Might get them.

 

And well, the word basically means toilet paper. So that ain't that bad. :)

Wow guys. Been listening to the Yamaha HPH-200 for several hours now and these are definitely legit. They go for under $149.99. Hope some of you can offer comparisons to your Yamaha HPH-MT220 and compare the sound/cost ratio. Cheers.

The 220 is a real gem. Yamaha should have updated those instead of the Pro series.

Absolutely, this is such a strange hobby

I actually just returned the hph-200. They are great sounding at $150, but the circumaural design hurts my ears after pro-longed use. I decided to go with the mt200 for home use. The non-removable cable is a concern, but at that price, the value is just too great to pass given the reviews from some of the more reputable users on this site. Made this decision over spending close to $500 on the JVC HA-FX850 iems. Just needed an at home headset with resolving bass to pair up with my aurisonics rockets (commute). Thanks a lot to Grizz and Gelocks for their helpful impressions.
