Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"My previous pair lasted many years in my careful hands however as soon as my family started using it they broke off the cables."
_
"I'm not really surprised that this happened due to the extra long cord snagging on things, so it is pretty much my own fault, but I have purchased a replacement and still love them."
_
"I just hate the coiled cord and they are a little bulky."
_
"My only 'complaint' is the non-coiled cord which I've nearly yanked out of the ear cans several times."
_
"The cord is well made but also fairly long."
_
"Just be careful with the cables and enjoy them."
_
"Therefore the only gripe you can have with these is that the cables are pretty thin and maybe easier to break than the others."
_
"I'm not really surprised that this happened due to the extra long cord snagging on things, so it is pretty much my own fault, but I have purchased a replacement and still love them."
_
"For me, the biggest advantage is a cord that's long enough to monitor the frequencies, move about my office and work at my computer."

Listening

Listening:
"Depending on your hearing loss and or listening requirements these are either great or horrible."
_
"I went to Best Buy and a couple more local outlets who supposedly dealt in high quality phones and listened to several other brands that generally get good reviews but found them all to be unacceptable for even casual listening, not to mention using them for studio work."
_
"Depending on your hearing loss and or listening requirements these are either great or horrible."
_
"The sound is so good you won't know you're listening through headphones."
_

Music

Music:
"and you care about music quality over how they might look, and want a compromise between sticking something IN your ear and totally engulfing them inside something, these are possibly the best $60 you could spend."
_
"Hard to notice in music, but something to be aware of."
_
"Not bad for music but not good if you're looking for accurate, uncolored sound."
_
"Not very clear when music becomes very complicated."
_
"However, if you listen to poorly recorded or compressed (MP3) music, or listen to music through mediocre equipment, you're probably better off with more forgiving (i. e., less revealing) headphones."
_
"Very nice fits, sound clear as expected from Music powerhouse company and best of all this is very well made headphones"
_
"And I've converted a few others who not only use them professionally, but with their portable music as well."
_
"I got them, and they are exceptionally good as long as you are listening to music that was not subjected to heavy treatment, hall effects, etc."
_
"Brought this for non-recording use, I bet it's superb for music and I don't regret."
_
"Overall I recommend this to anyone who listen to reasonable music."

_
"It's absolutely ridiculous how accurate these headphones are for the money."
_
"They will outperform any other headphone on the market for WAY less money."

Quality

Quality:
"and you care about music quality over how they might look, and want a compromise between sticking something IN your ear and totally engulfing them inside something, these are possibly the best $60 you could spend."
_
"Build quality is not as good as its many competitors."
_
"Not overwhelming, not crazy, but of good quality."
_
"The sound quality is excellent with minimal distraction to anyone around me."
_
"Great price point for quality headphones."
_
"Many reviewers of this product have said they are less than satisfied with the sound quality."
_
"This product is what should be expected from yamaha, good quality and great rigid construction."
_
"The bottom line here is: if you want to spend under $70 for a headphone unit but you want the best possible quality, and you don't listen exclusively to death metal and or rap, you can stop shopping around because the Yamaha RH-5Ma is the one you want."

Sound

Sound:
"Don't liked the sound too much"
_
"The RHM5A, unlike my more discriminating AKGs I use at home, never make me want to skip a song because it doesn't sound good on them."
_
"With the skinny cords I always have problems with the sound cutting out and getting electric shocks after a couple of months of use."
_
"They are NOT the best sounding headphones in the game for flat response especially in the high end area."
_
"Sound is also not at all tiny and has good bass."
_
"Not bad for music but not good if you're looking for accurate, uncolored sound."
_
"Have several pairs at this point, and my originals clearly still sound the best of the bunch."
_
"And these have a surprisingly detailed sound stage as well!"
_
"If you pay attention to what you are listening to, you will hear instruments take up certain positions around your head (your brain processing well made sound into where it thinks they are coming from)."
_
"Light, comfortable, relatively inexpensive, smallish enough to stuff into a coat pocket or glove box, and most importantly... they must sound GOOD!"
_
"The day I bought the RH5MA I was looking for a cheap, *but good sounding* headphones that could be easily driven by my iphone and were more easily transportable than the over the ears cans that I use at home (ATH-M50s, AKG K701, AKG712, etc.)"
