My favourite for mixing so far
HughH 07.01.2020
I've tested and used the standard Beyerdynamics, AKGs as well as multiple Sennheisers, specifically the HD650. Although I got to love the HD650 (it's still the most comfortable one out of all the ones I've used) it's more of a hifi headphones type and a fantastic one for that matter. But mixing wise (I also use the Yamaha Hs8s + sub and got used to them) the MT8 blew me away. It took some getting used to, but once you use it more often and the frequencies all come to shine, it's absolute killer!

+Sound wise there's absolutely nothing missing (giving the price)
+Handling as well as swappable cables are a plus too
+Size of the earpads are great (I'm on the bigger side)
+Works great with any smartphone or iPod etc due to its low impedance

-The only downside is the comfort, but that's coming from a longtime AKG and Sennheiser user. On longer sessions the bar on my head seems to pressure a bit. It could also be a plus, since it reminds you to take a break every once in a while though ;)

All in all I would definitely recommend this product. Great purchase.


Balanced headphones
bass_jam 07.01.2018
These replaced my Sony MDR 7506. I have used the headphones over the last couple of months mainly for silent bass practice, for general listening and to a lesser extend also for mixing. Different price point compared to the Sony but also definitely a few notches up in terms of sound quality.

The overall sound profile is very balanced with good resolution for closed back headphones. The bass sounds great with good extension without getting boomy, distorting or being overbearing. I find the mids well balanced with good detail. They work well for different music styles. Noise isolation is very good and the cans are very comfortable to wear over longer time periods even with glasses.

Due to low impedance they work also reasonably well on phones. They are not the most portable cans though. Hence there will be better choices if mobile use is a main concern. As musician and studio headphones they are hard to beat at this price point in my opinion.


Sooo accurate..precise...frequency,,dynamics..imaging

just brilliant... already 3 months with them and i put my fav sennheisers and beyer pairs back - as a 2nd choice/reference. Much like the MSP series on your head. Good amps and D/A is a must with those yamahas..I bet Akira Nakamura still works for Yamaha : ) Long live, Akira!


It's Yamaha baby!

Very good quality and materials.
Sounds very good from "flatness" perspective.
Very good loudness with clarity.
Just might be one issue - can touch bigger ears with speaker covers.
