Just order the things. You have probably spent more on a cable :-)
I have some Shure 840s that I consider very good for critical listening while mixing. These Yamahas are are just as good and well on par as the Shures. Just like the Shures, they dig deep into the mix and what you hear is what you mixed. I have to make some minor corrections to some of my mixes due to phasing problems. That is a HUGE statement and shows just how accurate these things are. Just like studio monitors, ( I own KRK's and Mackies) don't buy these to listen to your Itunes colloection. These are to be treated as a peice of lab equipment.
They worked out of the box and they seem to have been assembiled well.
Can't beat the price. But what don't Yamaha do that is not excellent? :-)

I bought a pair of Yamaha RH5MA Headphones based on reviews on here and price range. I'm no expert on head phones but they sound much better than my computer speakers and I like the 2 size plug. Problems, 2 months after I bought them. The left side started cutting out when the chord would move around. I only used them at home and I'm very careful with my all my stuff so, don't know what happened. If you have to send yours back they have to go to a Yamaha Pro audio repair place and then will have to be sent back to Yamaha as they are "not field serviceable" I was told. I'd be surprised if they ever return to me.

          As an Engineer/Producer on a budget, I seek quality at an affordable price. Yamaha ALWAYS delivers! With a frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz and the name Yamaha how could you go wrong? Look at the reviews other have given. Need I say more? If you're looking for quality headphones at an affordable price, look no further. Pick up a pair of the RH5MA's and you'll be glad that you did. You can thank me later!

          Comments about Yamaha RH5MA Headphones:

          Very good sounding phones, I use them for mixing before cranking it up on monitors, works good. The bass is just right, not overwhelming and not weak. The mids and highs also are very accurate.
          I have a slightly large head, size 7.75 hat, and these phones are almost too small for me. If I pull them down firmly they reach my ears but a little further down would have been better. If you wear a larger than 7.75 size hat these will probably be too small for you.
          Other than that they are great! My very excellent ProLine 650 Ultrasound phones have taken a back seat to these Yamaha phones.
          Seems like every time I buy a Yamaha product I am happy with it.
          They do not block outside noises, which sometimes is good, sometimes not. Doesn't bother me at all.

            Comments about Yamaha RH5MA Headphones:

            bought these to replace a set I lost in a house fire a year and a half ago. I used those for 2-3 years, and they were very flat and true. Comfortable, light,(but not cheap feeling)and well-made. Good enough to replace with the same model, that speaks volumes right there. They can be used to listen to pre-recorded music, but be prepared to hear a very honest representation of the music...no extra bass in these, but all of the original bass AND ITS TRUE CHARACTER is in full attendance.

                    Comments about Yamaha RH5MA Headphones:

                    IMHO these headphones set the standard for performance and performance at a price point. These easily compare to high-end Sony or Fostex and you can buy two of these for the same price. Non-fatiguing, no artificial bass boost, and no sizzling highs, but just accurate music production, which is what a headphone should provide. If you use headphones for extended periods of music listening or mixing, I don't know how you could do better, unless your goal is to impress others that you paid lots of money for a set of _____________ headphones.

                      I bought this from BHP to mix my projects in my studio. I have a pair of monitors and they do the job well, but I always find myself walking to my car with my laptop to hear the true mix there. Now i think those days are over. The sound of the headphones is simply amazing. No extra nothing, just the perfect sound that you need for your mix. Very light and nice comfortable to use. I went to [@] to compare with bose and other brands like stennheiser, koss and sony but they just could not compete with the yamaha. I always trust the yamaha brand and they have never let me down. Highly recommend them. Buy them!

                      I have used this almost everyday for the past eight years, from listening music to monitoring my Guitar sounds. At first it looks pretty bare-bones and outdated, but it just wont die. After eight years of reasonable abuse the sound and construction is good as new. The thin vinyl on the ear pad has fallen off, but the padding is still alive. It is still comfortable and outputs great sound. To be honest, I`m scared that these phones will outlive me.
