    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.

    This product is useful on field or in studio, depends on where you're work takes you. These headphones are decently lightweight and durable, it also collapses into itself which is a plus. I have taken these into a studio environment and I won't say they are 100% true, and for a professional these are minor, but they have a good range and and for the price I would recommend them.

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

        I use these headphones for music production and mixing. Brought these because my old headphone wire got chewed up by my kitten. They are a step up from my old ones. The sound quality is good, nice balance of frequencies. I love the fact that this product comes with 2 detachable wires, very convenient. The headphones are lightweight, can be used anywhere.Only downfall for me is the fact I can only wear them for a limited time. My ears are sensitive so I can not have them on more than a couple of hours.

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

          The SMH-1000 headphones from Senal are by far the best headphones you could pick up for day-to-day sound work on film sets and in the studio. Comfortable and durable, these headphones are a joy to use. Be sure to pick up the Velour pads if you want to treat your ears to stay comfy while working! The lockable and removable wire is a godsend too. Being able to pick up a replacement cable will make any potential issues with it easy to fix!

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

              I got these headphones to use as both studio and field monitors, but listening to music is also truly a treat. It's lovely to hear music entirely as it was intended to be heard; no added bass or anything. These are the real deal, and they will make you both fall in love with your favorite records all over again, and will help you capture and mix amazing audio. What are you waiting for?

                The chord is VERY long, so you should be able to reach whatever you need to while still attached. Moderately comfortable earpieces; the band will press down on the top of your head so prolonged use might hurt.

                            Very good all round sound for studio monitors. They'll be a little on the non-bass side if you listen to music with them, but a clear acoustic-like sound. Perfect price for a budget->pro recording kit. Good sound is essential!

                            Cables provided are perfect, the twist lock is a great design note, they also pack up rather well. As a bonus, get the leather carrying pouch too - everything oozes quality.

                              Considering the excellent price I give the Senal SMH-100 headphone a 5 star rating. Excellent price/performance! It does not include (optional) the nice carry bag that comes with the similar Sony MDR-V6. B&H did throw in no charge as a combo special a pair of the super nice sheepskin earpads.These phones have very defined low distortion sound and extended FR with a slight mid range emphasis and slight bass emphasis. (I prefer this in a headphone, no laid back, warm sound here). This headphone is very well built, extra comfortable, folds up into a very compact form when not in use if desired, and comes with two detachable cords, one coiled and one short straight cord, a very nice feature. These are quite similar in price/performance to the also excellent Sony MDR-V6. So far (several weeks testing) I might give it an ever so slight edge over the Sony MDR-V6 which I have owned 4 pair over 20+ years. Time will tell if the Senal continues the excellent performance, build and sound wise. Superb service from B&H as always! Highly recommended.

                                    This is just a great headphone, it's crystal clear and very very comfortable.

                                      I just got these headphones and am really enjoying them so far. The removable cord is a huge plus.

                                        they feel good, some nice options however, the sound is not as good for monitors. Terreble mids and highs - not realistic compare to other sets I have. Not for electric drums if you looking to get some netural sound...
