Yamaha Headphone Comparison: The HPH-MT5, HPH-MT7, HPH-MT8. Which is better?

What goes on inside your own head is your business—especially when you are flipping-off reality and holing up in your favorite listening space to get intimate with your most holy playlist. Once inside the sonic bubble created by a comfy pair of great sounding “cans” the troubles of the day just melt away. The auditory pleasures provided are personal and confidential.
