5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Yamaha Headphones!!!, 13 May 2015
Well I've had these just over a day now and they are nothing short of breathtaking! I received these from another online retailer for the price of £149 with free delivery! The headphones come in a black surrounded white box which feels weighty and well packaged. These have got to be the best presented headphones I have ever opened! It shows the care and devotion that Yamaha have taken with these! See my pictures of the unboxing

Now these headphones do like beats headphones in the design! But nothing like beats in terms of build & sound! They come in piano black or blue I opted for the black ones! They feel very heavy and well made when you first hold them, when you put them on first they really clamp to your ears and head! But no problems with comfort for me! Yamaha also very proudly puts there logo on both sides of these incredible cans! I used to have a pair of Sony MDR-1A headphones before these but these Yamaha's are amazing and blow the Sony's out of the water in every department they are the best headphones I've had in terms of sound quality & build quality they are solid! Plus these are cheaper than the Sony's if you look around! I don't know how Yamaha have managed to get the drivers on these so sparkling but these headphones have to be heard to be believed I'm so glad I brought these!

But I don't know about anyone else but I've always found it cool to have headphones made by a company that makes jet ski's motorbikes & speedboat engines! Plus guitars drum kits pianos and hi fi equipment. Inside the box included with the headphones are a 3m flat cable which is more than enough length to be able to use the headphones on the move I use these with a fiio E18 portable amplifier connected to a Sony NWZ-A15 Walkman using a fiio line out cable plus I rip my CDs into lossless FLAC files! Trust me you'll have a fine musical audio setup on the move for this all for £450! Which if you ask me is bargain! I also use these for home audio when watching the TV as I have a Yamaha amplifier also and these headphones are amazing for this as well! Wether it's watching DVDs or blu-Rays these shine what ever your watching!

I'm so glad I brought these and everyone else reviews your not wrong I agree with you all! These are a very special pair of headphones! Well done Yamaha you have show us how great headphones can be and the fact you don't need to spend mega bucks or silly money to get some! Oh and these come with a 2 year Yamaha warranty and a shorter cable for using your iPhone with mic and controls but I haven't used this yet! I don't think I'll be letting these out of my sight or letting anyone borrow them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Pair Of Ear Muffs! Like No Other!, 6 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had this headphones since Saturday 29th November I ordered them using amazons evening delivery via city sprint they should of arrived on that evening but instead due to the courier giving the delivery driver the items Late they were not delivered on the Friday evening! And therefore never arrived until the following Saturday morning! Not good city sprint! Amazon refunded the delivery in full

Anyways on to the headphones I can't tell you how brilliant these are! I'm using them for listening to music on the move via my Sony NWZ-A15 and Fiio E18 portable headphone amp for music on the move. All my music is ripped in CD quality 16 bit FLAC files a must or higher for these cans! They will show up poor quality compressed music! The instruments are clear defined and seperated. Bass is nice and not too overpowering a big improvement again over the MDR-1R

My home setup is via my Sky+ box/blu ray player/PS3 and I'm using a Topping TP21 Desktop amplifier! From both outputs the sound these produce is brilliant all audio is clear and separated I'm also hearing extra detail in my fav shows that I've not heard before!

These are great headphones and yes they are a major improvement over the MDR-1R of which I had two pairs both were returned due to the cable rattling which Sony have fixed with these! Only thing to note about the cable is Sony have fitted a new 4 tier connector on the headphone jack end which means you cannot use a standard 3.5mm extension cable if you feel the cable is not long enough. The sound is also so different on these to the MDR-1R! These are the best pair of over ear headphones I've ever had!

There also a brilliant pair of ear muffs they keep your ears nice and warm! Although I do have to readjust them ever so often to let air in! Some people with small heads may have difficulty with these as getting the correct fit so the drivers line up may be tricky!

All in all Sony deliver a top notch pair of headphones! Build quality is also top knotch for this price point! If you want decent headphones buy these! A five star headphone from Sony but then again there like no other!

EDIT: 14.12.14

I no longer need the Fiio amp when using these my Sony Walkman nwz-a15 provides enough oomph to drive them no problem!

The sound has blown me away they are certainly sounding even better now they have had time to burn in!
