Yamaha EPH-50

 

Somewhere along the line in the past two or three years, in-canal earphones—not those ill-fitting earbuds that come with most MP3 players—turned a corner. Whereas previously, only higher-end, pricier earphones could reproduce deep low frequencies, the...

Superb fit. Deep bass response for low-end lovers. Decent passive noise reduction

Exaggerated bass response isn't for audiophiles. Cable holder doesn't eliminate tangles

Yamaha's EPH-50 earphones provide extra-deep bass response and a secure fit at an affordable price.

Review: Yamaha EPH-50 Headphones

 

Decent earbuds that also block noise? Why, that would be the EPH-50s from Yamaha.

Solid sound reproduction. Nifty design blocks outside noise while keeping the headphones small. “Smart” cable holder makes the cord easy to wrap. Relatively cheap given performance

Lightweight cable feels flimsy. Tinny highs. Can hurt the ears after long periods of use

terrible fit; hurts ears

 

good sound solid construction

expensive i don't know what they were thinking with this design. it doesn't fit your ears at all. the large bulge cuts into your ear and makes them sore after an hour or so of use. ( yes I am using the correct buds in the correct ears; they are clearly...

Nice

 

Seriously eggsters, I've got pair of these beauties for less than half of your price and free 2-day shipping.

SO smooth, flat and even on across the spectrum. Never had a more comfortable and better sounding in-ear headphones ; Bought it on Huge retailer that's offers prime service

Newegg pricing could use an overhaul

Great earbuds

 

Great sound quality. Once you have the right fit, you got to play with the silicone buds, the quality of the sound will not disappoint you. if somebody complains of a lack of base very likely is because of the poor fit. I would buy them again

Great range. Not only base but also highs and mids

GREAT

 

Sometimes you do get what you paid for. Forget the others.

Good fit; great sound, and there's base. The best I've tried to date. You'll pay more, but they're worth it.

None.

That's called Yamaha quality -- awesome

 

Good for me since some of my music player doesn't have equalizer and this headphone doesn't need equalizer to make further adjustments. Another big advantage is, it doesn't need external batteries. Noise isolation is also quite effective. I can hear...

Yamaha is the world's largest manufacturer of musical instruments and their product is always very good. And this headphone EPH-50 is their new flagship product and it meets my quality expectation. Bass is good, mids and highs is awesome -- there's no...

$100 is worth the cost

 

If other manufacturers can make good headphones like Yamaha's it will be great, but so far this is the best for the price.

This is on par with other headphones costs $300 or more! And it just cost $100! They are very good sounding headphones that block out noise extremely well. Bass is rich and mids and highs are fine. They are also fairly comfortable. Definitely worth the...

None even after I bought it quite a while.
