Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"A well-deserved 4 stars (one being removed because of the comfort issue).Pros:- Stylish design- Excellent package- Excellent tangle free cables- Excellent sound- Innovative connectivityCons:- Uncomfortable- Bulky- Need a large head or accept to wear a foam pad on top of your head...Now onto the longer version:As a disclaimer, even if I have performed many headphones reviews over the time and even if I own more than enough, I would like to say that headphones reviews are highly subjective."

"A well-deserved 4 stars (one being removed because of the comfort issue).Pros:- Stylish design- Excellent package- Excellent tangle free cables- Excellent sound- Innovative connectivityCons:- Uncomfortable- Bulky- Need a large head or accept to wear a foam pad on top of your head...Update 04 04 2013I have had those for a while now and I thought it would be time to provide some feedback."

_
"I love that they give you two different cables for different uses (mobile desktop) plus they throw in a 1 4 adapter."

Design

Design:
"Problem two with the me-too design is the fact that it subtly undermines what Yamaha has achieved here."
_
"Other reviewers also complained about this fit, i think its just the design of them as they have a very circular shape to them."
_
"They come with an Apple-friendly mic and remote, a 10-foot-long home cable, and a nicely designed travel case."
_
"Sound quality is good and its tight as expected due to its design."
_
"Comfort: so-so, I've got to be honest, my Sennheiser PC 350's are MUCH more comfortable than these (but those were designed for prolonged gaming hours)."
_
"The sound engineers did their job very very well, but the guys over in the ergonomics department were influenced too heavily by the guys in the marketing department to force the design to 'look' more like the beats, at the expense of comfort."
_
"Nice design and really stylish"

Music

Music:
"I don't notice any cons from other types of music but there are better headphones for those types (e. g. Classical music isn't the best with these, yet they're not bad ).Now for the only bad thing that I notice with these headphones."
_
"The problem with discomfort is that it can sometimes break that music immersion."
_
"With the Yamaha PRO 500's I discovered subtle sounds within music pieces I had never been able to catch before."
_
"They can be used with all genres of music with one possible exception: their lack of neutrality and their warm, creamy, and slightly dark-hued tone may be inappropriate for many Classical music listeners."
_
"They have a very sleek look and great sound for music."
_
"This headphone offers just enough articulation to let you dissect the music, or, it allows you to just enjoy listening."
_
"The effect of music is good."
_
"I feel like these headphones are perfect for those who listen to bass heavy music."
_
"Sound great, music is very clear with no artificial sounds and is rendered in great fidelity."
