Quite simply, YAMAHA makes the best products that aren't made in the USA. They are like the BMW of Japan. These headphones are comfortable, form a good seal, and have a nice solid feel to them. I use them for both practice monitoring in the studio, and to plug into my iPod. I can only hear what is mic'd when playing with my group, and that is a great sign of these 'phones sound cancelling capabilities. Their sound reproduction is well rounded, with great bass and wonderful midrange, with my only complaint being they could do highs a hair better. A little frequency adjustment can take care of most of that. Superior to any Koss, or inexpensive Sony. If you want complete sound cancellation, the only thing better is a pair of Shure in-ears'. Verdict: Another great YAMAHA.

The stand out feature on this pair compared to others in the same price category is the cord. Other models in this price range tend to have very thin cords that enter the headphones on both ears and risk breaking and tangling. If you have a pet peave about cheap, flimsy, tangly cords, then this is a good pair for you. As far as sound quality and comfort go, I don' think these are the best for the price. I would not be surprised if they break where the phones connect to the head band, but so far they have not. If you don't care about the cord, then choose a different set. If this type of cord is important to you, than its a good choice for the money. For this price range, its a matter of knowing your preferences, and where you want to make compromise. If you don't want to compromise, then spend more money.

Awsome

Comments about Yamaha RH3C Professional Stereo Headphones:

Well, I bought these about 4-5 months ago and have been using them ever since. I was a little worried about what i would get with there only bring one pic of them, but i have found nothing wrong with them. They have a coiled cord coming from the left ear side only, with a 1/4 inch adapter that screws on to a normal but that plugs into an ipod or whatever else has the right size headphone jack. I use these with my behringer headphone amp and they work amazingly and they pump out some fat sound. And for the price, its one of the best deals for begginers.

Great Pair of Headphones For Recording

By Edward

from Pittsburgh, PA

See all my reviews

Comments about Yamaha RH3C Professional Stereo Headphones:

I use these headphones for making and mixing my own music. Compared to my last uncomfortable Sony headphones, these are great! The sound is not Bose quality, but it's excellent for the price and I really feel like I got what I paid for. They are a sterdy pair of headphones and if you are going to use them for playing guitar or recording, their great, but I will assume if you are a DJ or going to be using these in traveling alot, you might be better off with some good DJ headphones, although these headphones are not cheap and seem to be built well for my needs.

Don't be decieved

By HonestConsumer412

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Yamaha RH3C Professional Stereo Headphones:

The sound wasn't bad for the price. They are actually pretty accurate when comparing to headphones of a similar price range. The problem is they break very very easily. They are poorly constructed. The left ear piece broke on the two sets I purchased and eventually so did the right. Invest in some better headphones. Forget a warranty, you will be able to replace them during that period, but they'll almost undoubtedly break again once it runs out.

Comments about Yamaha RH3C Professional Stereo Headphones:

I had min headphones about a year. The left side broke about 1 month ago and I was able to JB weld back together. The right side just broke and there is not hope in JB welding it back together. They sounded great, were very comfortable, just were not durable enough.

            Comments about Yamaha RH3C Professional Stereo Headphones:

            These headphones sound great, but they broke today so I figured I would rate my old headphones. I take good care of my equipment so I never abused this product, but out of nowhere the right side broke off. I admit it has good sounds and feels comfortable but don't expect this product to last more then a year if even that.

            By Ravnos

            from Boston, MA

            Comments about Yamaha RH3C Professional Stereo Headphones:

            These headphones are amazing. I so some basic recording, so I use them that as well as practicing guitar and piano and I have never had a problem with them. Mainly using them to listen to music at high volumes hasn't affected the performance, I still get crystal clear sound from them. And the 1/4" adapter screws on so it never pops out. My only issue is the cord is rather short, but I grabbed an extension from Radioshack and it works great. I highly recommend these for any use.

            By hlwTOSm39

            from Mullica Hill, NJ

            Comments about Yamaha RH3C Professional Stereo Headphones:

            These headphones aren't amazing by any means, but they do sound significantly better than any of the other headphones in this range (cheap Philips, JVC, Maxell etc.) that I've tried.The construction isn't impressive, as others have said, but unless you're careless I really don't see them breaking. I've had mine for about a year and they're as good as day 1. I use them constantly, between my logitech speakers, Philips open-air phones and these, these are the best. However, the low end bass is pretty light, you might want to apply some EQ. The mid- and high-end is fantastic. I hate the coiled cable, but that's just my opinion. I do like that it doesn't get all kinked up and knotted like the straight cables, but it's heavy and short.

            Comments about Yamaha RH3C Professional Stereo Headphones:

            Well, I'm rather disapointed with these Yamaha headphones. First of all, I don't think the bass response is good enough, unless you enhance the signal yourself, then it's phenomenal. It seems to have too much midrange presence, but it could be because I'm not used to studio headphones. The earpiece broke after about two months (was treated well too) so it doesn't appear to have the best build quality. Some tape fixed that :P Overall, it's an okay product and gets the job done, but I should've just purchased studio monitors.

            Comments about Yamaha RH3C Professional Stereo Headphones:

            I've had these for a few months and they were great, but my left earphone also broke off. All that holds them on is a little plastic clamp-like structure and it broke very easilly. Also they sound good but are not isolation headphones by any means. Don't get to play drums unless you crank them like I did. Get them if you're looking for cheap headphones but you have to be extra extra careful with them. I have bad luck with headphones.

            Comments about Yamaha RH3C Professional Stereo Headphones:

            I just now bought these things at a local music store and they sound great. There real easy to put up because they are collapsable and are a great value. There also really compfortable which is to me, the most important. I just wish that the cord was straightened instead of wound but in all this was a great buy and I recommend it to anyone.

            from Lincoln, NE

            Comments about Yamaha RH3C Professional Stereo Headphones:

            These sound pretty good for the price, but I had reliability problems. The coiled cord developed a short after a couple of months that I could live with, but after six months one of the earpieces broke. There's no way to fix this, so they're going in the trash, which is too bad, since I really baby my equipment and expected better longevity. Meanwhile, I've got a pair of Sony 7502s that lasted ten yaers in much worse conditions...

            These headphones are real nice. They have a good clean sound.The only kind of downside is the ear cups are not very deep and the cable is a little to short. But if you have small ears and a small extension, it'll be good.

            Since it's Yamaha, you'd expect excellence (I know I did). But, not with these... Sure, they sound great, but they'll break on you at the drop of a hat. If you want great sound, but awful durability... You can't go wrong with these.
