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.

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

    I like the build of these headphones. Better than the Sony MDR-7506, I feel like their is very little noise cancellation. Also I love the fact that you can remove the cable and use the coil ups or the thick straight one. Sound quality is great as well.

        I mainly use this for audio post production. For the cost, this this feels unbelievable. Comfortable, not hot ears, clean sound, excellent build quality and the changeable pads are a plus. Detachable cables, etc. You won't be disappointed.

            I am a videographer and got these for monitoring audio while doing interviews - I used them with a Tascam recorder. really helped to block out ambient noise and monitor interview (also to pick up squeaky chair noise when interviewee shifted) Liked the collapsible design and interchangeable cables.

                  I got these as part of a bundle with the Zoom H6n, and they are working out very nicely. Compact and durable. There are obviously better headphones out there, but this is solid for the price.

                    The Senal SMH-1000 headphones are a great addition to my HDSLR sound kit. Things are Very clear in the mid to high tones!

                    Windnoise & adlibs I notice now that before were drowned out by pronounced low-end in my previous headphones. There is still enough bass for heavy songs to enjoy on my phone. The build quality is professional & listening comfort is still great after the first hour!

                    The gold cable connectors snap into place. The replaceable 3ft & 10ft coiled cables are a great feature not found on the Sony in this price range.

                      I teach film and television production to high school students and I wanted some decent quality headphones that wouldn't break the budget. These fit the bill perfectly. They have decent sound and are well designed. I also like the fact that they come with 2 detachable cables. (a short straight and longer coiled) The ability to detach at the headphones means you no longer have to throw away the headphones when you develop a short in the cable. We have only used these for a week so I can't speak to durability but they seem to be well built and should last a while.

This headphone has picted up unwanted lutter in real time so that adjusmnts could be made at the point of recording. The sound quality and the capacity to indentify unwanted clutter is time saving, cost containment against reshooting after the fact is fantastic. This is an invaluable piece of equipment.

                                  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.

                                        I'm a very happy customer.
                                        The headphones are great.....deep,rich sound.
                                        Connected to my iMac...the sound is so good.
                                        I got at least 4pairs but those are the best

                                          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
