Yamaha HPH-MT5 Headphones - BLACK

High-grade monitor headphones that deliver a balanced sound faithful to the source. Perfect for in the studio, music production at home, or for personal listening. Great portability thanks to the folding arm and 250 g light weight hardware design.

Comfortable Headphones with an Accurate Mix

Yamaha's HPH-MT5 Studio Monitor Headphones are designed to cast a spotlight on the problem areas of your audio. From the studio to the stage, these high performance headphones will help put the finishing touches on your mixes and paint your source material in a realistic light.

Yamaha HPH-MT5's are loaded with full-range 40 mm neodymium dynamic drivers for accurate sound reproduction across the entire audible spectrum. Their comfortable ABS headband, ear cups, and pads are designed to stand up to long mixing hours.

The Yamaha HPH-MT5 headphones come with a carry bag, 10-foot detachable cable and 1/4" adaptor.

Closed-back, circumaural design

There are two factors at play here: the closed-back earcups, and a circumaural (around-the-ear) design.

The closed backs mean your Yamaha HPH-MT5 Studio Monitor Headphones offer increased isolation from outside sources, suiting them to stage use where you're surrounded by loud audio.

Their circumaural design means they seal around the ears to create the big bass needed for mixing applications.

Should I mix with headphones?

Monitoring in a reliable, treated environment with speakers you trust is always going to trump mixing on headphones. But today's mixing headphones have gotten so advanced that, for audio folks without a great room and reliable speakers, they're sometimes a better alternative.

Take the Yamaha HPH-MT5's. These headphones are built for mixing from the ground up. Their drivers and ear cups have been designed to eliminate extraneous resonance, ensuring that what you hear in these headphones remains true to the audio source.

Headphones also have the added advantage of being portable — mix at the beach or at the coffee shop if you feel so inclined.

Get the Best Mix Possible

Making great mixes means getting your hands dirty. That means hearing things that are sometimes unpleasant — room peaks, bass buildup, shrill sibilance, noisy guitar amps, and more.

If you're looking to make solid mixes that translate from system to system, the Yamaha HPH-MT5 headphones should be high on your list.

Components Geared to Mitigate Unwanted Resonances

From the arms to the ear cups, all acoustic components in the HPH-MT5 headphones have been designed to deliver an accurate sound by eliminating extraneous resonances.
Isolation and Comfort

For professional users, it is important that headphones aren't fatiguing during extended listening sessions. Also, headphones should provide isolation to enable maximum concentration while working. The HPH-MT5 headphones provide both comfort and isolation.

Sleek Design

The HPH-MT5 headphones utilise a sleek, stylish design with a closed-back, over-ear configuration.

Luxurious Ear Pads

HPH-MT5 headphones are equipped with large ear pads for a comfortable fit. Smooth synthetic leather and low-resistance cushions absorb excess vibrations.

A Perfect Fit

A three-dimensional arm-pivot construction and adjustable slider allows the angle of the ear pads to fit the shape of the wearer's head to a T, helping to alleviate fatigue when working for extended periods. The headphones also feature movable earcups, allowing single-ear monitoring when required.


These headphones have been designed to make users aware of the cable without being hindered by it, while providing enough length for monitoring applications where mobility is a consideration.

The detachable straight 3 metre cable comes equipped with a corrosion-resistant gold-plated 3.5 mm plug and a gold-plated 1/4" stereo adaptor.
