      These headphones are awesome for the money. Very clean highs in rich deep bass sound. Why buy more expensive headphones if you really don't need to.

      I've really enjoyed these. My wife uses them for her piano, while I use them on the computer. It's great for both.

      Best $60 I've ever spent

      By Nathan hejnicki

      Comments about Yamaha RH5MA Headphones:

      I traded in some gear a few months ago and had a couple hundred leftover. These headphones were one of the things I picked up. I live in apartment building and can't have an amp because I like to play loudly, so I wanted something I could plug into my mixer and just listen to myself play, and I have to say I was blown away by these headphones. The sound quality is amazing for the price, and they are unbelievably comfortable. I like them so much that I took them to work for music at my desk job and will be buying a second pair for guitar and such at home. Of all the gear I've bought over the years, this is probably the most impressed I've ever been with a product for the price.

      Great!

      Comments about Yamaha RH5MA Headphones:

      As someone else said, why buy high? These headphones are amazing for studio monitoring. They may not be totally around the ear design, but its enough to get rid of outside noises interfering with what you're trying to hear and produce a great sound. Good bass end, not so much that it's unrealistic, but it just gives you a very real picture of what your music will sound like on the radio, cd player etc. The 8 foot chord is also great giving you flexibility for multi track recording. And for those of you that don't know about Frequency Response, this headphones range is the exact range of human hearing! In other words as long as you aren't recording a song for dogs or elephants, these are the best there is. Buy these!

      Good stuff

      Comments about Yamaha RH5MA Headphones:

      Very comfortable, lightweight. The sound is full and bass rich. The low end is pumped up and it sounds good! If you need accurate sound for mastering, Yamaha's RH10MS are great. I have a pair of those too. These are great for all around audio. I'm happy with the price and the product. (FYI - they don't fold up)

      GREAT VALUE

      Comments about Yamaha RH5MA Headphones:

      Having been in the entertainment most of my adult life (55 years old now), I can honestly say that I've used just about all of the name brand headphones available. That said, in my opinion these phones are absolutely the best bang for the buck out there. I've been using this model for over 12 years. As I use them mainly for live mixing I have to have not only flat response but durability as well. I get both with these phones. The only small issue I've ever had with these is that over a period of several years the ear coverings will deteriorate. On the other hand this might actually be a good thing as it's a really good physical reminder that the drivers have seen a bit of fatigue as well. So time for a new pair!

      Excellent value

      By Fuzzball

      Comments about Yamaha RH5MA Headphones:

      These headphones are good DJ headphones. The headphones have a frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz. They have a high power handling, but I recommend not going past 65mW or they tend to lose sound quality. They are made pretty well but I believe the cord may easily break so be extra careful bending the thin cord.

      Why Buy High?

      By TC

      from Japan

      Comments about Yamaha RH5MA Headphones:

      I used to work for Guitar Center (A looong time ago) and I have listened to hundreds of different headphones(owned half of them) These are a little bass heavy ,but overall clarity is very realistic , live recordings will impress you quite thouroghly. the first time I listened to them I put in a Live concert that was well recorded, and the hair on the back of my neck stood up when the audience began to swell just before the band hits the stage (You know what I`m talkin bout) . Next is efficient use of power. At 98db per mw you can turn the bass down and the volume down on the portable.How does that translate? Battery life! Volume goes down Battery life goes up and you still sound good. I do alot of portable recording (MD , and Pro deck usage) Live acoustic groups ,Jazz bars, My own stuff, even though these are "Semi Closed" they block out enough for you to hear the detail in what you capturing. Also they keep enough IN so that the people next to you on the train dont want to clock u. Peace..............(AKG, Sennheiser,Bose,......hangit up OK)
