Product Description

Modern music production technology has taken revolutionary leaps over the last ten years. Greater than-CD resolution, noise-free recording and all-digital processing are commonplace. Now with the HPH-MT-220, Yamaha has created headphones that are ideal for monitoring in these demanding environments. They've applied advanced technology and meticulous adjustment to deliver the clearest and most accurate sound, all to complete the final and most important link in the recording chain -- the sound that reaches your ears.

Every element of these high-quality headphones have been designed to suit the modern recording environment. They provide faithful, accurate reproduction of high-bit, all-digital sound, with less noise. Specifically, the speaker drivers utilize a CCAW (copper clad aluminum wire) voice coil. This combination of aluminum wiring coated with copper features exceptionally good conductivity and light weight, reproducing high-resolution sound with maximum clarity over the full frequency range.

The HPH-MT220 is a model of simplicity and elegance, offering clean design where nothing is wasted, and exceptional functionality where all elements combine to provide faithful, high-quality monitoring of demanding digital sound sources. Its housing has a rounded-rectangular shape that is large enough to completely cover your ears, yet are easy to handle and feel just right. Along with the beautiful two-tone contrast, the HPH-MT220 in particular has an aluminum hairline finish, giving the surface a luxurious texture. The appearance complements the sturdy construction and modern design -- a perfect match for today's recording environment.

The sturdy three-dimensional arms pivot, allowing you to adjust the slope depending on the angle of rotation. Along with the careful adjustment they've made to the arms' lateral pressure, this lets the earpads securely yet comfortably fit along the shape of your head. The housings can also be rotated freely, allowing you to invert one cup and monitor in just one ear if desired.

On the HPH-MT220, the outer earpad coverings are made of synthetic protein leatherette, a material that retains moisture and has skin-like smoothness, while the special, low-repulsion cushions fit your ears perfectly for high sound insulation. Altogether, with the ingeniously designed shape and slant, these elements combine to provide the most comfortable fit and highest quality sound.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great headphone"
Overall: The yamaha hph mt220 is advertised to be great for the modern studio professional. They do not disappoint. They don't come with a lot of fancy extras but they sound really good. The mids are not recessed but behave according to the track that it is playing. The headphones have excellent PRAT (pace rhythm and rhyming). They have the right amount of weight to the tones with decent clarity. These are more bright sounding than the shure 1540 which has a rolled off treble but not the super bright headphone either with a balanced frequency response. There is a slight boost in the highs but they remain non-fatiguing. The soundstage is pretty good and has a decent width to them but nothing to hoot over. It is more than adequate though considering its price tier and competition. The imaging is good too. It has very good attack and the leading edge of the instruments strike well and cut through the mix pretty good, enabling good instrument separation and a clean snappy sound.They aren't the last word in clarity but are very detailed. That may sound like a contradiction but it is not so. These headphones are really detailed but don't have the hear through quality of most open backs and a bit blanketed in comparison. There are open headphones that don't sound as detailed as these, though.The bass is a little more than neutral but doesn't overpower the songs. This is the perfect amount for the modern professional who wants the bass to be present and accurate. If the song is not bass heavy then these won't make them sound bass heavy. As follows, if the song is bass heavy these things pack a mean punch all while behaving and keeping their cool.I can easily see the bass translating to speakers well. They don't have a strong mid bass hump that bloats into the midrange but rather a deep and strong sub bass and even mid bass. Overall the frequency range is a slightly boosted bass and treble with a midrange that doesn't seem left out. That being said you would think that it is not accurate... False. The treble boost is slight and the bass boost seems as if it is there to be able to hear the bass well instead of make it a head pounding experience. I have had tons of headphones over 25 in the last year in this price range and up and I have to say that these definitely are among the most accurate for mixing and producing purposes. If not the most accurate. Yeah some headphones are better at being more transparent or detailes etc but the tuning on these hp's are amazing. No big midbass hump, deep extension in the bass, clear detailed highs with a lot of information, mids that keep their cool but show up in the mix right, and a soundstage that takes it away from being a totally in your head experience. Good job YAMAHA... people are sleeping on these headphones for sure. They rock.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
