Yamaha Monitor Headphones Made for Modern Recording Now Shipping

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Yamaha today announced that the new HPH-MT220 and HPH-MT120 studio-series headphones, ideal for modern recording, are now shipping. As an ideal tool for demanding monitoring environments, marked by revolutionary changes including greater-than-CD resolution, noise-free recording and all-digital processing, the new headphones feature advanced technology to deliver clear, accurate sound.

The MT220 and MT120 deliver high-resolution sound reproduction with maximum clarity over the full frequency range due to the use of copper-clad aluminum wire voice coils. Yamaha has paid careful attention to other details when designing these elegant, but functional headphones. The shape is large enough to completely cover the ears, yet they provide a comfortable fit for extended sessions and the three-dimensional arms pivot, allowing users to adjust the slope of the cups.

“Monitoring headphones have to fit well for long-term use and must be able to reproduce today’s digital recordings with complete faithfulness,” said Athan Billias, Director of Marketing, Yamaha Pro Audio & Combo Division. “These new models are the perfect complement to any studio set up.”

The MT220 features an aluminum hairline finish, which gives the surface a luxurious texture and are also constructed of ergonomic memory foam ear cushions with an ultra-soft covering. Outer earpad coverings are made of synthetic protein leatherette, which features skin-like smoothness, and provides proper fit and insulation for top-quality sound insulation.

Pricing and availability: The HPH-MT220 (MSRP: $399) and HPH-MT120 (MSRP: $299) are now shipping.
