Yamaha launches new professional monitoring headphones5 October 2016
Yamaha has launched its latest MT Series headphones, the HPH-MT8 and HPH-MT5*, developed to provide engineers with the high levels of precision and fidelity required for professional monitoring, the company says.
The new models are equipped with custom drivers and powerful neodymium magnets for precise definition, even at the highest output levels. The lightweight-yet-powerful drivers deliver a frequency response of 15Hz-28kHz in the MT8 and 20Hz-20kHz in the MT5.
Both feature a comfortable closed-back, circumaural configuration with solid ABS housing and sweat-resistant headband. Large ear pads and low-resistance cushions absorb excess vibrations and reduce sound leakage. A three-dimensional arm pivot and adjustable slider ensure the ear pads fit the wearer’s head perfectly, helping to alleviate fatigue.
Both models include a detachable straight 3m cable, equipped with gold-plated stereo mini-plug and 6.3mm stereo adaptor, allowing them to be used with both professional audio equipment and portable audio players. The MT8 is also supplied with a detachable 1.2m coiled cable.
