    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? :-)

    After extended use, these things put the pain down on my ears. I didn't give them a long time to break them in, because after an hour or two of listening, my ears were in serious discomfort. They tended to apply a lot of pressure to one side of my head, focusing all of the tension on the ear, and since the phones don't wrap around your ears but rest on them this turned into a major problem and I returned them. The sound quality was incredible, but the discomfort was unbearable.

      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.

          Excellent sound across the spectrum. I use these for recording, so I wear them for long stretches at a time. These are absolutely the most comfortable headphones I've ever used. Highly recommended.

            I have had these headphones for over a year and I have been very satisfied with them especially considering the price. They have been very durable and sound especially great with a good CMoy amp.

              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!

                Minimal but Rugged

                Comments about Yamaha RH5MA Headphones:

                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.

                I'm just gonna say this:Pros: Accurate/Flat Response, long cord, can be played loudCons: Low end is a little weak (rolled off), cord is to long for casual use, people next to you can hear your musicBottom Line - these headphones are great for mixing/monitoring but no good for casual use.

                Comments about Yamaha RH5MA Headphones:

                I don't think so. A great product. i do a little hobby recording, playing. these work nice when recording multi tracks. i can't hear my wife yelling for me in the other room, but i can still hear the guitar or whatever other instrument i am playing. long cord is nice. i kinda wish they woulda came with a bag though. very solid, well built and comfortable. too many headphones are earbuds these days, make the switch to something like this if you want to really hear the music.

                I've had my RH-5MA's for 4 Years now,and I use them everyday.Whether it's listening to Music through my DeskTop,...Recording,...Monitoring,etc.,these Phones are Great! Light-weight,so no Fatigue on your Ears or Head.A Nice Flat response,yet Crispy,Punchy in Sound! They can take quite a bit of Volume B-4 they break up also! I've dropped them (by accident),rolled on the chord a Gazilion times w/my Computer Chair.The Chord has been Yanked on a few times while plugged into my Recorder,and they keep Working,and Sounding Great! You can get a Decent sounding Mix,as they do have a Great Flat Response,but no Headphones can take the place of Studio Monitors,no matter how much $$$ you spend! Even comes w/a 1/4" addapter if needed!These are Really Nice Sounding Phones,and are Built Very Well! Unless you own a Multi-Million Dollar Recording Studio,and see the need to spend $$$ on High-End,....more Expensive Brand Headphones,the Yamaha RH-5Ma's are all you should need! (I.M.O.)
