Our take on the Yamaha PRO 500 by Crutchfield's David Brown
Fashion never sounded so good
Yamaha knows how to design audio equipment for outstanding sound. But as their PRO series of headphones shows, they know something about style, too. Their flagship PRO 500 combines cool looks with well-balanced sound that brings your music into focus with rich detail, natural midrange and deep, full bass. The powerful 50mm drivers are housed in durable aluminum alloy earcups. The drivers are designed for maximum efficiency and are easily powered by your mobile device, so you can enjoy the PRO 500's finely-tuned sound whether you plug them into your home stereo or your iPhone®.
iPhone controls when you want them
If you prefer mobile listening, Yamaha has you covered. The PRO 500 features a three-button remote for volume and track control without removing your iPod® or iPhone from your pocket or purse. And the built-in microphone lets you make phone calls on your iPhone as well, with the remote providing convenient answer and hang-up functions. If your mobile device isn't compatible with Yamaha's remote, you can swap out the detachable cord with the included standard cable or add an aftermarket cord designed for your particular device. Whichever cable you choose, you can plug it into either earcup as each is equipped with a miniplug input.
Built for home and away
Cleverly designed to highlight Yamaha's iconic tuning fork logo on the earcups, remote and miniplug connector, the PRO 500 headphones are as stylish as they are comfortable. The nicely cushioned earcups fit snugly around your ears, while the sturdy headband provides just the right amount of clamping force to keep them secure without feeling too tight. The around-the-ear design also provides excellent noise isolation, so you can enjoy your music without external sounds leaking in. It also means you can listen anywhere without sound leaking out and disturbing others, whether you're in the office, the library or on the go. Fold them up and stash them in the carrying case for instant portability.
these headphones have very clear sound, powerful sound. they sound better then bose qc 15 or ue 6000

Overview: The Yamaha PRO 500 headphones feature high-grade aluminum alloy earcups, with an over-the-ear design to isolate noise. The folding design lets you collapse them and store them in the included semi-hard zippered case. They come with two tangle-resistant flat cables: a 4' cable with an in-line remote and microphone so you can control your music and phone calls with ease, and a 10' cable to use at home or in the studio.
Audio Quality: The PRO 500 headphones deliver superb audio performance. The newly-developed 50mm Yamaha-proprietary drivers have powerful neodymium magnets that make them easy to drive with today's portable electronic devices. You'll get accurate musical reproduction for most any kind of music. The over-ear design shuts out external sound so you're only hearing the music, not the outside world.
Comfort: The soft padded ear cushions and adjustable headband give you hours of listening pleasure without fatigue. The headband is shaped to apply just the right amount of pressure--not too tight, but snug enough to isolate much of the exterior noise.
Dual Inputs: The headphones have 3.5mm input ports on both earcups to give you the option of which side to connect the cable.
Cables: The PRO 500s come with two cables: one for portable use and the other for home/studio use. The tangle-resistant flat cables separate the internal cores to minimize interference. They are coated with a durable rubber-like material to reduce contact noise. The 4' cable terminates into a right-angled 3.5mm plug, while the 10' cable has a straight 3.5mm plug. A gold-plated 1/4" adapter is included for listening to your home audio equipment.
In-line Remote/Mic: The PRO 500's 4' cable has an in-line remote control and microphone that is optimized for Apple iPod, iPhone, and iPad. The 3-button remote has "+" and "-" buttons for raising and lowering the volume, while the center button controls your music (play, pause, skip to next song, skip to the previous song) and your phone calls (answer call, end call). The remote/mic is compatible with:
- shuffle: 3rd generation and later
- nano: 4th generation and later
- classic: 120 GB, 160 GB
- touch: 2nd generation and later
- iPhone: 3GS, 4, 4S, 5
- iPad: iPad and iPad2
- Frequency Response: 20Hz-20kHz
- Sensitivity (dB/1mW): 106dB
