Yamaha HPH-MT5 Headphones - Ear Ringing in use.


New pair of Yamaha HT5 headphones purchased a few days ago.

However it seems that even in low volume and short (10 mins) production usage they leave me with a weird feeling in my ears, like my ears are ringing but not.

Hard to explain but it feels unpleasant. It feels almost when you're at a loud club or loud music event and you leave and for a while you have that in ear after affects almost ear ringing feeling.

My main production system is based around Neuman KH120s and never had this feeling despite monitoring at high levels occasionally.

Anyone know what's going on?

For what it's worth and future interest (since I found it hard to find information on it) the MT5 are very tonally flat "sounding", tonally very much like the Neumanns which is great for easier translations and replication when away from the studio.

Return them for a new pair and see if the problem persists.
