The SMH-500 Professional Studio Headphones from Senal feature accurate sound, superior comfort, and durable materials. They are designed for studio and light field applications. The over-ear, closed-back design provides ample isolation to block out ambient noise on location, and prevent headphone leakage when recording in the studio. Their soft, replaceable ear cushions, lightweight design and refined sound ensure a comfortable listening experience, even during extended sessions.

Equipped with 40mm neodymium drivers at 58 ohm impedance, the SMH-500 headphones are designed to be loud enough when attached to low-powered devices such as mobile phones and mp3 players, yet robust enough to handle studio headphone amps without distortion.

The headphones are designed with an EQ curve that's been tailored for an enhanced low end that allows engineers to detect rumble and monitor bass frequencies effectively. The excellent high-frequency response has been enhanced to accurately and clearly reproduce spatial detail. There is also a slight bump in the midrange to maintain focus on vocal and dialogue intelligibility.

In addition to great sound, the SMH-500 headphones offer superior comfort with a soft padded headband. The 10' single-sided coiled cable allows freedom of movement for musicians, editors, and engineers.

Whether monitoring in the field, studio or on a portable device, the SMH-500 headphones provide an accurate and comfortable listening experience.

        Comments about Senal SMH-500 Professional Studio Headphones:

        Hook this up to a Roland digital piano. The coiled cable is very useful. I don't have to take it off if I switch piano pieces.

        I noticed the difference in sound from the old Sony headphone I used before. Senal sound is even, does not hear lots of bass. At first I said that I missed my Sony, but then I started to get the hang of it. I began to notice that I am hearing somewhat close to the sound that the piano actually is producing.

        Compared this again with Beats, that headphone has too much bass - does not sound natural to me.

        This Senal headphone is comfortable and construction seems solid. My son uses this when he creates his own music.

        Listened Pandora on a Mac - I like the sound and no complaints there. I hear all the instrument used in the accompaniment. For the price, you can never go wrong. I will try the SMH-1000 once it goes on sale. I will give it 5 stars.

          I bought a pair of these on the B&H deal of the day and wasn't expecting much but I believe I just bought the best headphones I've ever owned. I use these for field monitoring of a zoom H6 and get great isolation from ambient noise, they are extremely comfortable and have a fantastic sound.

            I have a pair of Sony MDR-V6 headphones, and the SMH-500 has a very similar fit and sound. They are very comfortable on the head. With the SMH-500 being available in the mid $30 range on sale, I'd grab a pair over the more expensive Sonys.

                      Comments about Senal SMH-500 Professional Studio Headphones:

                      Could not beat the price, plus the discounted add-on leather ear cushions. I plugged these into my laptop and reduced volume control from 20 (internal speakers) down to 5. Clamping pressure will likely ease with use, I expect. These will be used in engineering live sound for concert recording and church services, and in converting old LPs to CD at home. The 1/4" gold-plated adapter screws on the mini plug; very secure. The EQ curve is designed to enhance the low frequencies, for reducing wind noise and other bass sources to improve the balance in recording and live sound reinforcement. Watch the demo video for the SMH-1000 and read the product description. Looks like a great value for the price!
