Let your music breathe

Experience the natural sound of open-back headphones. Yamaha's HPH-200 headphones use open-air earpieces to deliver warm, spacious sound for a listening experience you can't get with most closed-back headphones. Your music will shine with detail that sometimes gets lost with the added sound reflection of closed ‘phones. Not only are they great for music listening sessions, you can also use them for music playing sessions in the studio. The open design lets you hear recorded tracks while also hearing other players in the room. And with a four-foot cable plus a 80-inch extension, you'll have more than enough room to move around, in the studio or at home.

Fit and function without being flashy

Each of the HPH-200's soft earpads rests against your ears for comfort to last throughout long listening sessions. The earpieces rotate so you they fit your ears correctly, and also to accommodate easy storage. The headband folds up, so you can easily fit these headphones in a small bag or purse and take them anywhere. It's a simple design, focused on great sound and comfort — just what a good pair of headphones is all about.
