Yamaha has released a series of its new high‐fidelity, noise‐isolating Pro Series headphones. Comprised of the Pro 300, Pro 400, and Pro 500 models, the series is designed to reproduce audio suited to a broad range of musical genres.

The Pro 300 utilises an on‐ear design and is available in high‐gloss black, blue or white. The Pro 400 employs an over‐ear design which delivers added noise isolation and powerful sound produced by its larger drivers. It is available in black or white. The Pro 500, the flagship model of the series, also features an over‐ear design and features drivers with aluminium‐alloy ear cups and are available in blue and high‐gloss black.

Pro Series headphones are designed to withstand the demands of everyday use and offer a padded adjustable headband with ear cushions minimising listener fatigue. The fit provides noise isolation without causing discomfort over prolonged periods.

Certified as Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad, each model within the PRO Series offers a 1.2 metre cable with an in‐line remote/microphone control module that is optimised for use with Apple devices. The Pro 300 includes a 1.2 metre cable with in‐line remote/mic control while the Pro 400 and Pro 500 come with two detachable cables: one in a 1.2 metre length with an in‐line remote/mic ideal for mobile applications, and one in a three metre length for use in the home. All included cables utilise a durable, tangle‐resistant flat design that separates the internal cores to minimise signal interference.

The Pro 400 offers a single port on the left ear cup while the PRO 500 offers dual input/output ports – one on each ear cup for convenient connectivity to source devices.

All models have durable compact folding designs for easy storage and include an attractive carrying case for protected transport. A gold‐plated 6.35mm adaptor is also included with all headphones to allow use with home entertainment systems.

Then there is the Studio Series, consisting of the HPH‐MT120 and HPH‐MT220, which are designed specifically for accurate listening while also being suited for use over prolonged periods. Suitable for professional applications, studio‐grade sound provides the listener with the ability to hear the finest of details in the music.

The first model in the Studio Series, the over‐ear HPH‐MT120, utilises a large driver with CCAW (copper clad aluminium wire) voice coil to deliver high‐resolution, accurate sound for those who demand quality audio from their headphones. The HPH‐MT120 comes with a three metre cable with premium connector.

Providing the ultimate in headphone monitoring, the over‐ear HPH‐MT220 is claimed to deliver detailed and accurate sound reproduction utilising an extra‐large driver with CCAW voice coil. An aluminium hairline finish, three‐dimensional adjustment and three metre cable with connector positions the HPH‐MT220 as Yamaha’s premium headphone model for studio monitoring.
