    Yamaha HPH-MT8 studio monitor headphones

    Been doing some more comparisons and critical listening with the HPH-MT8, essentially revisiting them.  There are some things I really like about these headphones and other things that could be better.   Sound - The strong points of the sound with these is the instrument and vocal...

    Yamaha HPH-MT8 studio monitor headphones

    Just got these in from amazon.jp.  Not really sure what to say... they're fantastic!!  Everything I love about that Yamaha sound, clear, fairly neutral, not peaky, but a beautiful sonic quality and fairly transparent.  I listened to electronic music all day at work with these, lots of strings...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    Just curious, have you tried like -4,-2 on the spikes instead of -8,-4? Also what amp/DAC are you running?

    A bit aggressive on the EQ there, don't ya think? HE-400i isn't THAT bright ;)

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

      I don't have much time with the 400i, but it sounds really nice and gets stupid loud through my Magni/Modi 1 stack.  Very full and detailed sound with plenty of nuance and bass impact.  Can't comment on DT990, but I have the DT770 pro 250 ohm and it also sounds very good out of the Magni/Modi...

    Yamaha HPH-MT8 studio monitor headphones

      My cat chewed through the cable of my Yamaha EPH-100, now I feel a void in my music life.  Yamaha has a great sound when they do it right.  Loved the sound on the Pro 500 also when I demoed them a while ago, but the clamping force was too great for me

    Seems a bit like my Sennheiser PX 100-II, which I enjoy very much for what it is.
