Best Closed Headphone
The Yamaha Pro 500 is the best sounding closed headphone available at any price. If you are looking for the best sounding closed back headphone, then this is it. I have owned all the other $200 - $400 headphones and none of them offer the frequency response, the articulation, the clarity, or the dynamics, of the Yamaha Pro 500.....And im talking about the B&W P7, the Sennheiser Momentum, the KEF M500, the Shure 1840, the Beyer DT series, the PSB Mu4, the Nad Viso 50, or the HiFi Man HE-400, and all the others that you can buy in this price range.
Pros: Hi Fi Audiophile sound that is miles ahead of the B&W P7 or the Sennheiser Momentum or any of others that are highly reviewed as i own them all.....or have owned them all including the NAD Viso and the PSB Mu4 and the KEF 500s and the HiFI Man 400.. I tried all the $200 - $400 headphones including the Focal headphones and t No other closed headphone in production that delivers this quality of Hi FI sound. Its dynamic, articulate, accurate, and does not suffer from any type of frequency flaw
Cons: Not comfortable to wear at all. It a bit heavy and the ear cups are not the best design regarding comfort. So, this a "Catch 22" headphone.....In that it offers the absolute best sound you can buy in a closed headphone, but its very uncomfortable to wear for extended periods.
