"Performs as expected; solidly built; very good sound."
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
The sound is very bassy, but not in a bad way. thru my Onkyo stereo, the music comes thru clear and powerful. Voice reproductions could be better, imo. The biggest surprise was listening to the pc. even with a very basic soundcard & basic real player, the volume level and clarity of songs were great. the headphones can filter outside noises well.
1/4 adaptor supplied with 1/8 jack. gold plated, and solid.
I wish it had a longer cord. it's coiled, and sometimes tug at the phones a bit, but might loosen up with time. i'm goingot get a headphone extention cable.
has a 1 yr warranty.
Solidly built. looks very proffesional. haven't had it long, so can't say much about reliablity, but I got it based on past experience with Yamaha, so I hope it stays solid.
The cord and jacks are very solid. the 1/4 adaptor screws on to the 1/8 one. gold plating is well done.
not needed yet.
I've heard other headphones in the past in this price range. they were not as good as this one. In this price range, I think this is one of the best, but I haven't heard ALL the others in the range.
I think price/value is good.
The Wow Factor:
it looks good. I like anything in black, and it looks plain, all black, but has a professional appearence. not tacky, just like other Yamaha products.
I'll keep this for now, until I have LOT of money so I can get a top of the line Grado or something. For now I'm totally happy with it. it performs as expected. I got it based on past experience with Yamaha. I'd replace it if it were stolen.
