I have had my pair of headphones for about 2 weeks and i can't get over the quality of the sound and music you can hear through them. I also own a pair of very popular over the ear headphones, beats, however the difference sound quality is unimaginable. The Senal headphones reveal parts of the music that you might not notice before, and allow you to hear the crispness of a singers voice that no other headphones allow you to do. The headphones are light and comfortable for any size or shape head you could imagine, and they fold up into a perfect size to stick into a bag. I wouldn't trade these headphones for anything. Nothing can beat the sound, price or design.

Fairly good deal....for the price

I think these are quite decent given the special price they were on for. However, if you are looking for tonal accuracy, flat frequency response, these are not the model for you. Too much emphasis on the very high end and bottom end. You will need to invest a fair bit more money, even than their regular price. On the other hand, if you only need something that produces good volume and reasonably decent audio with good physical quality, these will work. I purchased this model for use by DJs at a radio station.

      Limited use so far, but I will be using them with a zoom recorder hooked into a DSLR. First impression: Very good clear sound and they seem well-made. I expect they will hold up well. I'm glad I bought them.

          Works fine. Clear sound, though not the richest sound, and cuts down on exterior noise. Assuming they last, it's good value for the $ price.

            I'm a filmmaker and I use this Headphone in monitoring sound through my camera.
            I find it very useful and it gives beautiful sound.
            I already have a professional headphone and I need a backup.
            this headphone satisfies my needs.
            money wise it's a good choice.

              My use for the SMH-1000 Senal Headphones is at my field production.
              They are comfortable, adjustable, and sound fairly neutral.
              The detachable cable is very Comfort
              Thay gives me clear sound over entire frequency range with no boost enhancement.
              I would recommend this product

                    Comments about Senal SMH-1000 Professional Field and Studio Monitor Headphones:

                    These headphones produce great sound. If you're getting them for casual listening, don't expect them to be exceptionally bass-heavy like Beats or Skull Candy. I prefer these because they are clearly superior in quality and the sounds sound much more natural.

                    They fold up really nicely and mine came with a storage bag that is perfect for carrying them around without worrying about them getting damaged, but they feel sturdy enough to be able to put in a bag with other gear without problems.

                    I use these for monitoring my Tascam DR-40 portable audio recorder while in the field and they work great.

                      We use the SMH-1000 Senal Headphones in field production.
                      I have used another famous brand similarly priced headphones for years.
                      The Senal SMH 1000 was on a special sale on B & H. I watched the video demo and was impressed by the attention to fidelity detail and the the ability to change the chord from the 2 provided. (1 short and straight for personal use and the other longer and coiled for more mobility from the sound source)

                      While we still have a pair of the more famous brand headphones, I have put the Senal in our audio kit as our primary go to headphones.

                      1. I really like the audio response
                      2. I like the detachable cable

                      I would recommend this product

                            I use this primarily to listen to music on my desktop pc. Also, I occasionally use it as reference in sound enhancement in Audacity. For both purposes, the SMH-1000 is perfectly suited. I just bought these recently so I'm just getting used to them. They seem comfortable although I haven't worn them for extensive periods I really like the full spectrum of highs, mids and lows I'm hearing. The fold-up feature is nice, if you travel with them; I don't but, if I'm not going to use them for awhile, I will do so and store them in the bag that came with them. I can't comment on durability over the long haul but, so far, so good.

Overall sound is very solid and true representation of what is being recorded. For the price point, these are hard to beat!

                                These headphones are not noise cancelling but provide good sound isolation. They are comfortable, adjustable, and sound fairly neutral. I use them mainly for monitoring spoken-word audio podcast production, but they perform nicely for music as well. They compare quite favorably to my Sony MDR-7506's. In fact, they are just about indistinguishable.

                                  I use this product to listen to the music.

                                  Various kinds of music sound great and very clear.

                                  Gives me clear sound over entire frequency range. No boost enhancement. A little uncomfortable on the ears.

                                    I think these are quite decent given the special price they were on for. However, if you are looking for tonal accuracy, flat frequency response, these are not the model for you. Too much emphasis on the very high end and bottom end. You will need to invest a fair bit more money, even than their regular price. On the other hand, if you only need something that produces good volume and reasonably decent audio with good physical quality, these will work. I purchased this model for use by DJs at a radio station.

                                    I've been looking for decent pair of headphones that would give me the best bang for my buck, and so far these have been amazing. As described on the packaging, they really do give you a true sound quality, which makes them perfect for music or video production. One of my favorite features about these headphones has to be the detachable twist and lock cables. Can't beat that. So if you are looking for quality and something a little easy on your pockets, I would definitely consider these.

                                      Bought this headphones on sale. I compared them to my beloved Sony MDR-V6. Both are physicaly similar. Sony has a slightly better sound for my taste.

                                        I am primarily using these out in the field, recording video and audio together. Very comfortable - block out room noise - fold up nicely to save space
