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.

I compared these to: AT M50x, AT M70x, ATMSR7, and the Sony MDR-1A, This was probably one of the best sounding headphones in the set over the entire music spectrum of tracks I played. Just about every type of music sounded at works, very good, and at best was incredible. If you listen to just Rock, Country, or hip hop, I would probably go for the M50x. If you like acoustic, piano, orchestra, etc., then I would probably opt for the AT M70x. If your taste is many types of music, and you don't mind a non-folding headset with no mic for your phone, and don't mind some boomy bass, you will really like these.

They are, as far as i can surmise, undiscovered budget audiophile Gems which for some reason are seldom reviewed.
They are amazing sounding headphones.
Right out of the box they sound good.
Yamaha has created a "studio monitor" sound in these headphones which straddles that fine line between clarity and midrange, presentation and performance.
This is always the hit or miss with headphones, no matter how much you spend.
Regarding the Yamaha MT220, you get enough treble extension to illuminate and clarify the details in vocals and instruments, yet sweet and substantial mids are engineered in that offer the fullness so that the sound is big and polished.
Ive heard very few headphones that are able to accomplish such sound quality for so little investment.
And the bass?....Its very balanced yet not lost in translation like you find with AKG 550-51 or 702s.
Their (Mix) soundstage is excellent regarding a closed design headphone.
If you prefer a large bass response in your ears, then you might find yourself wanting a little bit more from the Yamaha MT220s, but as i said, these are certainly not bass-lite as you find with AKGs- 7s.
The Yamaha MT220s are also attractive headphones that feel good on the head.
Highly recommended @ 2x their price.
I think these cans are heavily underrated or just not marketed well. Not that it matters as these are discontinued.
Full is what comes to mind when talking about performance. Bass is tight and punchy when needed. Mids are relaxed and smooth. Highs are clear. Overall, a balanced pair of headphones with a tight sound-stage. I can listen to any genre with these headphones. But these are my go-to for Hip-hop/mainstream music.
I run these from an amp/receiver but no issues when I had it connected to mobile device. Although it could easily handle an amp if you want that extra kick in loudness.
Issues: Could have been lighter with a tad bit more clamping force. The cord is long, coiled and unremovable.
Current set: Sennheiser H598, Yamaha HPH-MT220, Sony HW700DS, Sony MDRXB950, Westone UM2 IEMs
