Yamaha has entered the headphone market with its new PRO series.
The three-strong pro series range (300, 400 and 500) were designed in California, then hi-fi tuned and engineered in Japan. The PRO 300 has an in-line microphone and volume adjustment for Apple devices built into the cable.
A Yamaha spokesperson commented, "These headphones are for people who are serious about their music. Yamaha is equally successful across the audio-visual and professional audio markets and these new studio sound headphones combine this huge collective experience and deliver brilliant natural and transparent sound. Initial reaction from audio professionals and musicians has been fantastic.”
