The Yamaha Pro 500's are a beautifully-designed pair of headphones. They are going to look good and sound great. If you want pristine articulate highs at the expense of bass and midrange these may not be for you. If, however, you want a well-rounded linear set of headphones that are true to the music and perhaps favor the midrange just a tad bit for clarity and detail, these are sure to please. At $399 they are priced right and we think they are going to be very popular for the person who doesn't want overemphasized and bloated bass, but a smoother, more articulate headphone.
