Yamaha Launches the New HPH-MT7 Studio Monitor Headphones

Nov, 2015

Shizuoka, Japan, November 12th- Yamaha announces the upcoming release of the newest addition to their MT Series professional studio monitor headphones, the HPH-MT7. The new model will join the HPH-MT220 and HPH-MT120, rounding out the lineup of live audio and studio headphones developed around the concept of delivering exceptional precision and fidelity that will provide audio engineers in professional monitoring environments with an ideal platform to build on with their own signature sound.

Drawing from the same philosophy of sonic purity that inspired the development of Yamaha's industry standard NS-10M studio monitor speakers, MT7 headphones are designed to deliver flat, high-resolution sound with precise stereo imaging and faithful source signal reproduction, while providing a high level of isolation and comfort—ideal for extended listening sessions where fatigue is a primary consideration.

The MT7s feature custom drivers equipped with CCAW voice coils and powerful neodymium magnets to achieve precise definition and control even at the highest output levels. Made from aluminum wire coated in highly conductive copper, the lightweight yet powerful drivers provide a broad frequency response of 15 Hz-25 kHz.

The sturdy design features a closed-back, circumaural configuration that provides a comfortable fit and the solid ABS housing, die-cast aluminum support arms, and sweat-resistant headband ensure that the MT7s have the durability required for the rigors of road travel. The large ear pads are made from a smooth synthetic leather and low-resistance cushions that absorb excess vibrations, and reduce sound leakage, providing outstanding isolation and stress-free wearability over extended periods 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, helping to alleviate fatigue. MT7 headphones also feature steerable earcups, for single-ear monitoring and a straight, lightweight 3 meter cord 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.

“The HPH-MT7 studio monitor headphones exemplify the sound philosophy that we have pursued consistently since Yamaha first produced the industry standard NS-10M monitor speakers” said Ken Hiraoka, Department Manager of Yamaha Pro Audio, “The recent trend of increasing usage of headphones in a growing variety of recording and live sound environments served as the impetus for the creation of the MT7s, wherein we set out to make headphones with superior fidelity and sound source reproduction that live audio and studio professionals require along with the very high level of comfort, durability and versatility to accommodate a wider range of monitoring applications.”
