    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.

    Best on class hands down. Highly recommend. Detachable cord separates it from comparably priced headphones. Also love the sheepskin earpads.

    This Senal SMH-1000 is very good

    By Tony

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

    Very pleased with these headphones. Good quality. Locking cable and a plus. You get a short straight cable and a loner coiled cable. Love the sound and comfort of these headphones.

          These headphones sound great and as other have noted they don't overpower the ears with bass. Very clean and full sound. Am glad I purchased these. The locking 1/8" mini jack is a very nice feature too.

              These have been great headphones so far. I've been using them for editing audio on a feature documentary I'm cutting, both at home and while on the road. Good quality, and they seem to be well-built.Huge plus is the interchangeable audio cables!

                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.

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

                  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.

                    These headphones are amazing for the price. They pick up all the lower frequencies and the build quality is second to none. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend. I am actually considering getting a second pair.

                              Super solid, well balanced. The sound on these is quite accurate, little or no coloration. Great for field recording and mixing. Standard cable is a little short but the flexible cable is fantastic. For the money can't go wrong. Also quite comfortable... have worn for many hours mixing with no fatigue.

                                Great frequency response, really isolates speech from other noises. The removable/replaceable cable is an awesome feature on set as you can just unplug your cans instead of wrapping them. Comfortable for extended periods, might check out the optional ear pads just because I'm sure I'll have these around for a while.

                                  I'm new to videography (though not cameras or computers) and I've been outfitting myself with midrange pro-sumer video equipment (not high-end stuff, but definitely not low-end either). Just to give you an idea of my level, I spent about 2 grand on camera, 2 grand on computer and editing software, 2 grand on lav, sound recorder, tripod, lights, stablizer, odds and ends. I'm not trained in sound mixing, so it's a waste for me to spend too much on headphones. I saw these Senal's on sale and after learning about specs/quality of sound, etc, I decided these would be good enough. Turns out they were better than my inexperienced ears could have imagined, to the point where I can actually hear the piano player's fingers hitting the key just before the piano note (which also sounds very good to me). So, for my level of field and editing work, these are good value for the money (though being on sale helped:) I also liked the detachable cords, the fact that the earphones folded up, and the pouch.

                                      Accurate sound, as noted, excellent quality, and interchangeability of cord is great. Slightly down-rated because the phones themselves are a little tough on the ears. Not sure whether it's because of excess tension on the spring steel making the structure, or inadequate padding of ear cups. Suspect it's inadequate padding, since after-market pads are also sold by B&H for [$] They're ordered; but since they seem mandatory, there should at least be mention of them on the description of the headphones...now having to pay shipping and endure delay to get the ear cup pads. Also might play into value, since with the added cups, the real cost is [$].

                                      I have been searching for headphone for a period of time and bought a few that were reasonably good, UNTIL, I ran into this one from a site that had a video from the manufacture about the product.
                                      I was impressed with what it can do, so I bought it and gave it a try. AND now... I will never buy another or different headphone again. WHY? Because this will be the only brand headphone I will always from now on.
                                      I was very please and impressed with noise reduction, earmuff, the coil cord(My Favorite), the bag it came with and the straight cord and the plug adapter.
                                      The bag is ve4ry durable too.
                                      On the downside, They could add the volume adjustment to hear louder for low noise
                                      In all that has been said, I give it a five for out construction ability and the fold ability also it's features and highly recommend this product for every Broadcaster from independent filmmakers to TV to Radio broadcast which what I also use it for.

                                      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.
