When you think of Yamaha, it’s unlikely that audiophile-level headphones are the first thing to come to mind. However, the new YH-5000SE headphones are here to challenge that narrative. Backed by a six-year development process, the YH-5000SE features orthodynamic drivers, which have been re-designed from the 1970 original to include a thin and ultra-light diaphragm. The headphones also weigh in at just 11.2 ounces, making them one of the lightest high-end headphones. 

In regards to what the company is trying to accomplish, Alex Sadeghian, director of consumer audio for the Yamaha Corporation of America said: “The YH-5000SE is a testament to the creativity, excellence and workmanship that Yamaha stands for. It serves as a reminder of our capabilities in the world of headphones. With this one, we’re going to stir things up since a new legend has been born.” The new YH-5000SE headphones retail for $4,999
