World-Class Audio Quality

yamaha

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.

Ultra-Comfortable and Built to Last

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.

Fuel-Injected Design

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.

The PRO 500 is available in Piano Black.

Versatile, High-Performance Connectivity

yamaha

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.

Control at Your Fingertips

yamaha

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.

Take Your Listening Room With You

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.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great sound, nice aesthetic, and came with a lot nice extras.

Cons: Cheap build quality for the price. I kept these in the case while not in use. The issue is the headband which is made out of a ridged plastic. When you take them on and off your head it applies stress to the band. Which of course causes the plastic to wear until it breaks. Contacted Yamaha hoping for replacement parts to purchase. No such luck on a pair cans I paid 400 bucks for....

5 out of 5 eggsThe best portable Hi-End headphones, only 23 Ohm of resistance - my SG3 drives those easy, no PowerAmp pre-amp boost is needed

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.

With rich bass, wide stereo field, Yamaha PRO 500 sound is fantastic, coming in your ears, appear in your head out of nowhere - you don't feel "pointed-in-your-eardrums" sound of music, it is rather that wave after wave envelopes your eardrums, making you stop and listen, kinda like then you were a child and you wanted to hear what is coming next in your mother's bedtime story. 500 PROs are that good. Nice array of accessories, detachable cables. Cables are very high quality, thick, beefy, substantial and light at the same time, with nice silk-screened Yamaha logo, gold-coated jacks, flexible but both cables do not pass sound of touch along to headphones - what I mean is if you touch or bump cables 3-4 inches away from headphone cups, you cannot hear the that - cable isolation material is sound-deadening - unlike on many of mine IEMs, where sound of touch or bump will travel all the way to the ears from any distance of the cable being touched or bumped.

The PRO 500 is an around-the-ear, circum-aural design, very comfortable to skin and ears, though you will feel some slight pressure on the top of your head, seem to only happen during long listening periods. Adjusting the band helps, ear pads are very plush, so is the underside of headband, overall the around-ear design works just as good for comfort and the overall listening experience as Senns HD 280 PRO larger-more-around-the-ears design, sound isolation also on par.

The materials used and the surface finish on the PRO 500 are top-notch. Mine were chosen in racing blue, and the paint job is NICE - has two-tone, automobile quality finish, looks super to the eyes, and is durable - I already banged them on my head into the walls and corners (by accident, not intentionally :-)(headphones sit quite high and wide on the head, easy to hit objects with them), I thought I made a dent or at least scratched the finish, but no, even the clear coat lacquer finish didn't show no blemishes after those hard against the hard-objects knocks.

I got mine 500 PROs after having carefully reviewed hours after hours of reviews on Momentums and PRO 500 on amazin, CNET..US (for 500 PRO review) and CNET..UK (for Senns Momentums review), Newegg and PC.Mag (Thanks for the excellent review, Mr. Gideon), I bitten the bullet and got 500 PRO. I have 500s' for over a month now, use them daily. Very happy now. Thank You, Yamaha team, you made my life more bearable with better and nicer sounds of music to my ears !!! :-)

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).

Thank You, Yamaha team, you made my life more bearable with better sounds !!! :-)
