These flagship Yamaha YH-5000SE headphones combine advanced technologies to create a sound of tremendous quality. For those seeking the absolute pinnacle of true sound within a pair of headphones, the solution is right here.

Yamaha’s achievements and broad expertise as a brand are unparalleled in the world. The company are extensively involved with all-things music— from the moment the artist creates a sound to the moment it reaches the listener’s ears — and they are intimately aware of even the thoughts that artists put into their music.

From the detailed breathy vocals and subtle performance nuances of the artists, the energetic dynamism without the slightest bit of distortion, and the spatial expression that fully conveys the enthusiasm of a packed concert venue, Yamaha audio products deliver a musical experience that makes you feel as if you can reach out and touch the artist.

Orthodynamic™ Drivers

The ORTHODYNAMIC™ planar magnetic drivers and large-capacity housings provide authentic sound with faithful reproduction over the entire sonic spectrum. This includes all musical instruments and vocals, at any pitch, without altering the tonal quality. Harmonies stand out with clarity, allowing you to enjoy nuances in the music you’ve never heard before.

The large housing that comfortably envelops the ear has ample internal acoustic volume. It features an open-back design for creating ideal airflow, thereby reducing adverse effects on the thin film diaphragm, and preventing sound reflections inside the rear cavity. This helps with eliminating undesirable resonance. A newly-developed Japanese-made rolled plain Dutch weave stainless steel filter is used to control internal pressure in the housing, with an arch-shaped protrusion arranged inside the housing which functions as a reflector.

Thin-Film Diaghragm

The specially developed thin-film diaphragm is the culmination of repeated numerous prototypes, meticulous measurements, and rigorous analysis. Manufactured by etching the voice coil with a unique pattern on both sides of the film and applying minute corrugation, this results in significant weight reduction from a conventional dynamic driver, providing outstanding responsiveness that fully brings out the subtle nuances and delicate ambiance in the music.

Moreover, micro-perforation air dampers with high permeability arranged on both sides ensure that the diaphragm motion can be appropriately contained, allowing accurately controlled reproduction without degrading the vibrant dynamism of the music. In addition, the rounded shape devoid of any fixed points other than the outer circumference maintains uninhibited movement of the entire film and enables exceptionally full, yet clear low-frequency expression.

Yamaha's history began in 1887 when its founder, Torakusu Yamaha, repaired a broken reed organ. Shortly thereafter, he successfully completed the first reed organ to be built in Japan. From this unique blend of expertise and sensibilities, gained from a devotion to sound and music, a company was born. It remains committed to creating excitement and cultural inspiration together with people around the world.
