    +1 on both of the above posts.  The Pro 500s sound great, look a bit goofy, and are a misfire in terms of their market.  I use them often despite their looks -- and funnily enough, they are a stay-at-home headphone for me because they simply aren't durable on multiple fronts.   
    Yamaha should have gone with a mix of leather and metal instead of pleather and shiny plastic -- then they would be compared to Momentums and B&W P5s and other luxury headphones that have a similar sonic character.  This would be closer to Yamaha's roots, anyway -- think "musical instruments" all the way.

    Dr. Who?  classic ... almost like Yamaha was asking for it.  That's what you call publicity, my friends, good or bad, I bet their sales have gone up.

    I have inadvertently discovered a conspiracy.....just kidding.

    Is the BBC suing Yamaha too?  [​IMG]

    Seeing as Dr. Dre's Beat's company is seeking $75,000 (at a minimum), the settlement shouldn't go much higher than a low 6-figure payout.  $75,000 is a slap on the wrist.  Im guessing their case was mostly for publicity.

    Hopefully the publicity backfires when everyone realizes that the Yamaha's sound better. *dreams*

    Next beats will sue this German drugstore (this is their own-brand shower gel that they frequently re-brand/re-name every few months with new smells/colours etc)
    I've never seen such blatant copyright infringement in my life [​IMG]

    Yeah, I see that but they look better than the Soul to me.

    I wonder if they're any updates to the lawsuit... it's been a while now.

    Too similar to beats...why yamaha whyyyyyy... They look sleek but they could have taken the inspiration from beats and go on their own design from there. that is just too similar to beats line
  13. WhiteCrow

    okay, they have to use the same company that makes the blanks then dolls them up. they just look WAY WAY to similar.

    Hold them, listen to them, and then decide.
