If you're serious about your music making, then you need a decent pair of monitoring headphones, and Yamaha is here to help

Yamaha has announced a new addition to its headphone range in the form of the MPH-MT7's. The headphones have been designed to give the flattest possible response so you can hear what your tunes actually sound like, while also offering excellent isolation from sounds around you.

The HPH-MT7 headphones have at their heart custom 40mm drivers equipped with CCAW voice coils and powerful neodymium magnets. Built from copper-coated aluminium wire, these drivers have an impressive frequency response, from a stomach-churning 15Hz all the way up to 25Hz. Each is encased within a sturdy ABS housing in a closed-back, cirumaural design, which sits on a die-cast aluminium headband with sweat-resistant padding while your ears are cosseted by synthetic leather ear pads with low-resistance cushioning that reduce sound leakage. There's a pivot arm, too, so you can flip the cans for single-ear monitoring if you want to.

Yamaha Pro Audio's Ken Hiraoka said: “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. We set out to make headphones with superior fidelity along with a high level of comfort, durability and versatility, to accommodate a wide range of monitoring applications.

The HPH-MT7's are due to start shipping in January, priced around £200.
