Yamaha Introduces HPH-MT7 Studio Monitor Headphones

Yamaha has introduced the HPH-MT7 professional studio headphones — monitors that deliver flat, high-resolution sound with precise stereo imaging and faithful source signal reproduction.

Yamaha said the HPH-MT7 headphones provide audio engineers in professional monitoring environments with an ideal platform to build their own signature sound.

The new headphones, the company said, were created with the same philosophy of sonic purity that inspired the development of Yamaha’s NS-10M studio monitor speakers. They provide a high level of isolation and comfort, which is ideal for extended listening sessions where fatigue is a primary consideration.

The MT7 headphones feature custom drivers equipped with CCAW voice coils and neodymium magnets to achieve precise definition and control even at the highest output levels. Made from aluminum wire coated in highly conductive copper, the lightweight yet powerful drivers deliver a broad frequency response of 15 Hz-25 kHz.

The sturdy design features a closed-back, circumaural configuration that provides a comfortable fit and the solid ABS housing, die-cast aluminum support arms and sweat-resistant headband ensure that the MT7 models have the durability required for the rigors of road travel.

The large ear pads are made from a smooth synthetic leather and low-resistance cushions that absorb excess vibrations and reduce sound leakage, providing outstanding isolation and stress-free wearability over extended periods of time.

A three-dimensional arm pivot construction and highly adjustable slider length allows the angle of the ear pads to fit the shape of the wearer’s head perfectly, helping to alleviate fatigue. MT7 headphones also feature steerable earcups for single-ear monitoring and a straight, lightweight three meter cord that comes equipped with a corrosion-resistant gold-plated stereo mini-plug and a gold-plated 6.3 mm stereo adaptor that allows them to be used with professional audio gear and portable audio players.

The MT7 headphones are priced at $299 and are now shipping.
