The nautical blue version of the SMH-1200 Enhanced Studio Monitor Headphones from Senal is tuned for accurate music reproduction and studio monitoring. With a closed-back, over-the-ear, foldable design and features like interchangeable twist-locking cables, extra-deep ear cushions, and a refined musical frequency response, the SMH-1200s are suitable for both audio professionals and enthusiasts.

Using 40mm Neodymium drivers, the headphones deliver a wide frequency response of 10 to 20,000 Hz with minimal distortion, a slightly boosted low end for well-defined bass and sub-bass, a smooth and pronounced midrange, and a clear intelligible high end. The extra deep ear pads provide comfort while wearing the headphones for extended listening sessions and help passively isolate the sound from external noise.

Physically, the SMH-1200s are designed to be robust and appropriate for use with professional audio equipment such as mixing consoles and headphone amplifiers. Their 58-ohm impedance can also operate with lower-power devices such as smart phones or MP3 players for mobile listening. Color-matched elements combine for an elegant look.

They come with two twist-lock detachable cables that can be easily swapped depending on the application. The coiled cable can extend from 4 to 10 feet and is intended for studio use. The 4-foot, tangle-free, fabric cable includes an inline microphone for phone calls and a control button for operating smart phones and other mobile devices. A wide range of accessories is supported.

To ensure years of reliable operation, the earcups feature wire guides to protect the cabling and maintain the performance of the SMH-1200.

Note:
Due to variations in cell phone manufacturing, the included mobile cable may not work on all models of cell phones. For full functionality on Android phones, a third-party app such as Headset Button Controller may be required.

question

Are these any good w hearing aids that go over the ear (meaning the ear piece on the headset has to have enough room around the ear that the hearing aid can hear above the ear not just in the canal)?
Asked by: Anonymous
It's a matter of personal fit. I suspect they would not be comfortable. You would really need to try them on.

question

Are these Hi-Res audio headphones?
Asked by: Alfred
No. They do not have the Hi-Res Audio label. You did not ask, but I don't recommend these for enjoying music. Their sound is very flat. These are for audio monitoring duties, where they work amazingly well!

question

What's the difference between the 1200 and the 1000, just the ear pads or are they different drivers?
Asked by: John W.
These are great earphones and I think you would be happy with either the 1000 or the 1200... I purchased the 1200 and super happy with them. Their price is good and quality is excellent in my opinion. I had another different pair of headphones I pay about double the price called them and they wanted to charge me $12.00 for replacement ear pads and they did not work as well as the 1200 series. Very happy here and glad I found the product on B&H
