      Comments about Yamaha PRO 500 High-Fidelity Premium Over-Ear Headphones:

      They are heavy on the head and are too big, I cannot adjust the headband any smaller so the ear cups rest all the weight on the top of my ears making them uncomfortable even for short periods of time. At first they squeezed too tightly as well but after a while of over stretching the band I was able to get them to soften up. The sound quality at least is amazing, worth the price for sound but very far off the price mark for comfort. Having amazing sound from headphones is pointless if you can't stand to wear them. I read in many reviews that comfort was an issue, but comfort is relative to the individual therefore I figured I would try them. These seemed to be designed for someone that has tall narrow head, if your head is shaped like Homer Simpson's then these are for you, but if you have a head like Stewie Griffin then find something else! It is apparent to me now, after reading other reviews and now owning a set, that these headphones were not designed with a variety of head shapes in mind.
      As I stated previously, these sound amazing! You can hear every instrument and voice clearly and separately, it's not a jumbled mess of noise. The sound only improves when you use an amp (I own a Fiio E17) in conjunction with them, they love power. They seem to do well on blocking out external noise, but I have had comments from co-workers on sound leakage even at lower volumes but I think this is subjective to ambient noise in the area. I listen to a large variety of music, but so far my favorite jams on these headphones are: Styx-Come sail away & Queen-Bohemian rhapsody.

        Ive never have heard music with such a high quality. I listen symphonic rock such as Pink Floyd and I cant belive how well the instruments are heard. Best buy I have ever did.

        Comments about Yamaha PRO 500 High-Fidelity Premium Over-Ear Headphones:

        I live the sound and look.
        But the fit is actually too large for my head.
        My ears are either too high or the band does not go small enough.
        I did have some issues with the iPhone cable fell apart when I caught it on something. Yamaha replaced it right away.
        That said - they sound incredible and look amazing and are comfy for a medium to large head person.

        Comments about Yamaha PRO 500 High-Fidelity Premium Over-Ear Headphones:

        The packaging really states quality. The heaviness of the box and the elegance of the packaging really portrays quality.

        The sound quality is the best I have ever heard. When I first received the headphones I tried them in my RX-V673 receiver and was amazed with the quality. It was all there, the crisp high tones to the deep bass.

        I am a frequent traveler and a heavy user of the Bose QC15 headphones as are most business travelers. The sound quality is far superior to the Bose QC15 that I am use to. When it comes to quality both construction and sound I think that Yamaha now has a better product.

        One other feature that I really like are the controls built into the cord. This makes it really convenient to use the headphones with my iPod in my pocket while doing other activities. I wish that I would have had headphones with this feature years ago.

        Comments about Yamaha PRO 500 High-Fidelity Premium Over-Ear Headphones:

        I was very anxious to hear these as Yamaha has not had a alternative to the many consumer offerings currently offered. I was definitely not disappointed the sound is even and clear perfect distribution of mids,lows and highs outstanding clarity I am hearing things in songs I have never noticed before in songs I have listened to all my life. These are bigger than expected and a little heavy but still comfortable around the ear for extended listening and the fold up feature makes for nice portability, excellent packing as well. 2 thumbs up for Yamaha!

            Comments about Yamaha PRO 500 High-Fidelity Premium Over-Ear Headphones:

            I bought these with high hopes, and I'm really happy so far. I've used them in the gym, at home and on airplane trips. The sound quality is really great and accurate for music. A word of warning--they are pretty big, but they isolate outside sound really well, and really allow you to get lost in the music. I just recently listened to them on a cross-country flight, and they stayed on my head the entire time--they are REALLY comfortable. So far they seem durable--I've used them in the gym and thrown them in my backpack to take on trips. My biggest surprise so far is that I've taken to listening to music more on the weekends. These headphones really isolate you from the outside world and let you enjoy the music. Recommend.
