Yamaha announces the upcoming release of the latest additions to the MT Series professional studio monitor headphones, the HPH-MT8 and MT5/MT5W. The new models will replace the HPH-MT220 and HPH-MT120 and will round out the line-up of live audio and studio headphones. It is developed around the concept of providing the live and studio audio engineers with high levels of precision and fidelity required for professional monitoring environments.

Designed to deliver flat, high resolution sound with precise stereo imaging and faithful source signal reproduction, MT Series headphones will provide high level of isolation and comfort to prevent fatigue during extended monitoring sessions.

The MT8 and MT5 feature custom drivers which are equipped with 45mm and 40mm CCAW voice coils respectively along with powerful neodymium magnets to gain 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-28 kHz for the MT8 and 20Hz - 20kHz for the MT5.

The model’s sturdy design features a closed-back and circumaural configuration that offers a comfortable fit. Its sweat resistant headband ensures durability which is required for the rigors of road travel. The large ear pads are made from smooth synthetic leather along with low-resistance cushions that absorb excess vibrations and reduce sound leakage providing outstanding isolation and stress-free wearability over extended period 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. MT8 headphones also feature steerable ear cups for single-ear monitoring and a detachable straight 3 meter cord and coiled 1.5m cable 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 both professional audio gear and portable audio players.

Yoshi Tsugawa, Business Unit Director of Yamaha Commercial Audio said, “Ever since the development of the industry standard NS-10M studio monitors, we have maintained a uniform approach in all of our recording and sound reinforcement products that seek to achieve the purest sound reproduction possible; and give our users an ideal platform to work from when creating their own signature sound.”
