Yamaha is revving up its headphone offering, with three new products that reflect the power, elegance and performance of racing motorcycles.
Even if you aren’t into the bike scene, you can probably appreciate something from the company’s new PRO Series. The new line of noise-isolation headphones includes the PRO 300, PRO 400 and PRO 500. Each pair features a proprietary driver design with neodymium magnets and a stylish design that’s complemented by Yamaha’s iconic tuning fork.
The PRO 300 is the most compact model, with an on-ear design and a 4-foot cable with an in-line remote/mic control. At $199.95, it comes in piano black, racing blue and ivory white.
Available in piano black and ivory white, the PRO 400 features an over-ear design for added noise isolation, larger drivers, and a $299.95 MSRP. The PRO 500, on the other hand, is the flagship model with an over-ear design, ultra-premium drivers and rigid aluminum alloy ear cups. Available in racing blue and piano black, the PRO 500 has an MSRP of $399.95.
Both the PRO 400 and 500 each come with two detachable cables. One is the 4-foot cable with the in-line remote/mic, with another 10-foot option for home use.
Certified as “Made for iPod, iPhone and iPad,” all PRO models have folding designs and come with a carrying case and gold-plated 1/4-inch adapter. All versions of Yamaha PRO headphones will be available sometime in late September.
