Product Description

Clarity and Creativity

Clear, accurate sound. Elegant, beautifully simple.Created for creators, designed for your masterpieces.

Professional Headphones for Professional Sound

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. We’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.

Simply beautiful -- Elegantly functional

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.

High-resolution sound for modern recording

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.

Ergonomic memory foam ear cushions with ultra-soft covering

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.

Comfortable fit for extended sessions

Suitable for long use without fatigue, the HPH-MT2220 contains sturdy three-dimensional arms that pivot, allowing you to adjust the slope depending on the angle of rotation. Along with the careful adjustment we’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.

Just buy these; you will not regret it.

If there is any doubt about whether the MT220 will play heavy impactful bass with good detail (if such sounds are really in the recording), this track is the proof.

Very happy with my purchase would recommend to anyone who's asking.

I am not saying that I have had over 20 pairs of headphones from 30 dollar in ears to the Audeze lcd2's to boast by no means... because there are others that make me loook like a total headphone noob. I do say that so that when you see me as the only one rating these on here you can take a serious look. These are awesome for the price. There are headphones that you will pay a lot more for that don't tick the amount of boxes that these do.

Neutral, balanced sound, yet full and detailed. Not bass light at all. This thing can smack. The downfall is that the housing should be better supportive of its visceral attack, as you can feel it vibrate. Decent soundstage. Top notch instrument separation. Non-fatiguing and comfortable. Great for producers, engineers and the casual listener alike. Top two closed headphones of all time to me in its price range. Awesome product that is HEAVILY SLEPT ON. I prefer these to the Denon d2k and the bass is right there with them but with better mids, smaller soundstage, less sibilant, yet a more organic and realistic sound, with less distortion and better instrument separation.

Great job Yamaha.

OK, I got these through American Musical Supply for $229...and, I had never heard them before. First off, they have been on my head for about 4 hours straight now...no discomfort or clamping effect...on my fat head. I have been in and around music since my first rock band back in 1966. As with any new cans, I put them head to head against my other headphones and IEMs. I have ancient Audio-Technica ATH700 closed-backs, Audio-Technica ATH-M50x, Yamaha RH5MAs, Westone 1s, and Westone UM3X. I ran the new Yamahas through my usual torture test of a selection of my favorite albums and songs. I won't bore you with specs or audio-technobabble...you can find the specs a lot of other places and in a lot of other fine reviews. I played these both through my Onkyo receiver, and with my FiiO X3. My varied list of cuts to sample for these new cans is below...Read more ›

Sources: iPhone5, iPhone5 with FiiO E07k using LOD, iPhone5 with Decware Zen Head amp, various computers using the Microstreamer and Audioengine D3 DAC/amps.

Review notes: My first impressions of the sound of the MT220 are based on direct comparisons to other headphones - in particular the FAD Pandora VI, Shure 1540, B&O H6, B&W P7, v-moda M100, Beyerdynamic T51p, and notes I've accumulated from many prior reviews. I describe how I relate to the MT220 (i.e. my personal taste and how I use the headphone) only after covering all of the objective issues.

When I first put the MT220 on, I thought it sounded very good, but not as 'rich' as the Pandora VI or the B&W P7, which have an enhanced signature at both ends of the spectrum. What I did discover was a realism and soundstage depth that I don't get with the headphones noted above, except for the very pricy Pandora VI. The instrumental and vocal tonality of the MT220 remind me of what I'm missing with most low to medium-priced headphones, even the $500 Shure SRH1540 and $300 Beyerdynamic T51p Tesla driver headphone. In the case of the Shure 1540, the potential resolution may be as high as or higher than this Yamaha MT220, but that resolution is partially obscured by a heavy bass and thick lower midrange.

I was very happy about getting this quality of sound from a $250 headphone, but I was still curious about details such as how the frequency response/signature varied from 'flat' or 'neutral'. Running test tones for 30 minutes or so, I heard a drop of 3-4 db from 1.5 to 2 khz, an emphasis of about 3 db at 4 khz, and an emphasis of 4-5 db from 7 to 9 khz. The variances that I heard may be greater or lesser for different users, since for most people their sensitivity below 10 khz varies with different ear topologies.

Verified Purchase
Researched a ton of headphones in the $150-500 range. They all had some trade-offs. My main priority was that it had to have some decent audiophile sound characteristics. Well, when I found a headphone I liked, the reviews usually stated that it was either uncomfortable or would develop defects within a year. I have a big noggin ( size 8) and had to have comfort.
Picked these cans up for a big discount on Amazon and they sounded great on the first day! The speakers aren't even broken in yet- and I am pleased. Can't wait for them to get some hours on them and really settle in. Oh, and I am not using a dedicated headphone amp. I just plug into the headphone amp that is part of my Yamaha RX-V990 and the 37ohm impedance is no problem to drive.
Super comfortable!! Highly recommended!!
