The PRO 500 headphones deliver a sound so extraordinary – so real, so clear, so enveloping – it makes your pulse run faster and sends shivers down your spine. It transports you to another time and place.
As the world's largest musical instrument manufacturer and the leading choice of professionals for studio and concert gear, Yamaha knows better than anyone how to make your music sound its absolute best. Now you can enjoy the Studio Sound experience anywhere you go. PRO Series headphones go beyond just "powerful bass" to authentically reproduce any style of music. From Classic Rock to Hip-Hop, from Latin Jazz to Delta Blues, the PRO Series brings all your music to life. Your collection is waiting.
The flagship of Yamaha's PRO Series line, the PRO 500 headphones enclose robust 50mm drivers in high-grade, rigid aluminum alloy earcups to deliver the ultimate sonic experience. The drivers incorporate a new Yamaha-proprietary design featuring neodymium magnets that provide maximum efficiency when used with mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and other portable music players. The over-ear cup shape offers excellent noise isolation, while the ultra-premium ear cushion materials insure a crisp, clear sound.
Built to handle the rigors of everyday use without wearing you down, the PRO 500 features an adjustable, reinforced headband with ample padding textured for a pleasant feel. The band is shaped to apply just the right amount of pressure – snug enough to provide noise isolation, yet light enough for long listening sessions. Its ear cushions are extraordinarily soft and smooth, with a feel so natural you'll never want to take it off.
Drawing inspiration from the world's finest musical instruments and motorcycles, the PRO Series headphones get your heart racing before you even plug them in. Gorgeous geometry and ultra-clean design curves are matched with premium color and finish materials, and emblazoned boldly with Yamaha's iconic tuning-fork marque, conjuring the power and energy of our high-performance supersport bikes. The PRO 500 is available in Piano Black.
The PRO 500 comes with two detachable, tangle-resistant flat cables: one in a 4 ft length with an in-line remote/mic, ideal for most mobile applications, and one in a 10 ft length for use in the home. Both cables are made from a material that is durable and designed to reduce "touch noise" transfer effects. The flat construction keeps the internal cores separated to minimize interference and terminates to a low-profile right-angle connector. The PRO 500 offers dual input/output ports, one on each earcup, providing flexible connectivity. A gold-plated ¼" adapter is included in the box for connecting to professional-grade audio equipment.
The 4-foot cable includes an in-line remote/microphone optimized for use with Apple iPod, iPhone and iPad devices. The "+" and "-" buttons control volume for both music and phone calls, while the center button allows you to play/pause music, skip to the next song, skip to the previous song, or answer/end phone calls. The controller buttons provide a tactile click-response, enabling intuitive operation without need for visual reference. For non-Apple devices, control behavior varies due to differences in applications and pin configurations.
Engineered to move you and keep you moving, the PRO 500 folds into a compact size for traveling. It also comes with a semi-rigid protective carrying case. Plug it in anywhere and escape to an auditory utopia.

The best portable Hi-End headphones, only 23 Ohm of resistance - my SG3 drives those easy, no PowerAmp pre-amp boost is needed
This review is from: Yamaha PRO 500 High-Fidelity Over-Ear Headphones (Piano Black) - HPH-PRO500BL
Pros: The best portable Hi-End portable headphones, use only 23 Ohm of resistance - my Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 drives those easy, no PowerAmp pre-amp boost is needed. I compare to 64 Ohm Sennheiser HD 280 Pro, where I have to boost PowerAmp pre-amp all the way to the top for headphones to open up and expand, in other words, to achieve the full covered frequency range.
Cons: The best portable Hi-End portable headphones, use only 23 Ohm of resistance - my Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 drives those easy, no PowerAmp pre-amp boost is needed. I compare to 64 Ohm Sennheiser HD 280 Pro, where I have to boost PowerAmp pre-amp all the way to the top for headphones to open up and expand, in other words, to achieve the full covered frequency range.
Other Thoughts: In my life I use In-Ear Monitors are Thinksound TS-02 with mic, Klipsch S4-A Image with mic, and Klipsch Reference S4 Premium, on the go driven by Samsung GS3 US spec (Qualcomm DAC, not Wolfson DAC, as in International version - I presume 500 PRO will sound even better with Wolfson DAC), at home I listen to Yamaha Pro 500 headphones driven by Yamaha RX-V671 Receiver, Bi-Amp wired with C2G 12AWG speaker wires to Polks Monitor 70s Series II. PC-Build rig is used with Senns 280 Pro (for movies, games, music, all driven by Creative SB Zx).
