Senal SMH-HMM Cable for Senal SMH-Series Communication Headsets

The Senal SMH-HMM is a replacement cable intended for use with SMH-series communication headsets. It can also be used to augment your headset's versatility, giving you the ability to plug into a PC or laptop.

At one end, you'll find the 3.5mm TRRS connector and corresponding locking jack. This twists into your SMH-1010CH or SMH-1020CH communication headset, establishing a secure and reliable connection all the while.

At the other end, you'll note two more 3.5mm plugs. With these connectors, you can monitor audio from your PC or laptop's headphone jack while simultaneously looping your headset's microphone into the computer's mic input. 

The SMH-HMM is part of a whole ecosystem of SMH-series cables, all of which let you swap between the pin-outs of different computer, communication, and broadcast systems with ease.

Compatible with Senal SMH-Series Headsets

Senal SMH-1020CH Reviews

STATIC AFTER ONLY 5 USES

By Shane
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-19

I purchased these to be used by my commentators for a live stream sports broadcast. After only five uses they started causing problems. The microphone will only work in one position, and even then, it comes and goes. If I try and move the mic, it causes lots of static and noise. Also, the vinyl on the earphones started flaking off.

Flawed Wiring and Switch

By Tim
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2020-06-08

Two flaws in what would otherwise be a well made headset. 1) the boom on off switch proved intermittent after a week of use. 2) The headset is labelled for Left and Right and they sell an additional cable that says it will do stereo. Unfortunately, the headset wiring for stereo is only L (Ch1) in both ears. You can't here any cues or feedback for R (Ch2) at all.

Wonderful for online voice instructor

By Wilfred

Purchased for my wife, who has taken her voice instructing business online. The true-as-it-can-get sound from these headphones is just what she needs to hear her students without the music enhancement provided by consumer-grade headphones. And, it is built well, it feels comfortable, and it looks good. Of course, since I bought it from B&H it arrived quickly and in excellent packaging. It was a great value.

THIS IS A MONO HEADSET

By John
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2021-02-01

Noticed this was a mono headset a few months after buying. It is not advertised or mentioned that its a mono headset anywhere. You would think that they would be almost identical to the SMH-1000 which they are however the wiring inside is completely wrong. Out of the box they work as a mono left channel headset. I was not going to settle for spending 200 USD on a mono headset so I rewired the headset. It wasn't too hard, just separate the left and right channels and move the grounding wires to share the mic ground. After that you need to rewire the cable as the cables they ship, both the XLR+3.5mm and the 3.5mm+3.5mm ship with a stereo connector that isn't connected to the right channel. I grabbed another stereo 3.5mm connector from an old cable and reconnected it to the ground cable for the microphone where the mic and headphone cable split. I now have a stereo headset that sounds great, but it would be really nice if this came that way.

Works Great

Using this to connect to JK Audio Broadcast Host. works great for my application and is comfortable to wear

Nice sound but suffers from cross-talk

By Robert
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2020-11-01

Headphones sound great and the microphone replicates sound nicely. However, these suffer from cross talk. When using them as talent headsets, you can hear the director on the IFB coming through the mic channel thus rendering them unusable for broadcast. Must not be enough internal shielding between the headphone (1/4) and the microphone ( XLR) wiring. These headsets would be fine for stage managers or camera operators, but not for talent headsets.

Great headset, but the ear pads wear out way too fast

By Ron
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2020-07-06

I purchased this headset in December 2019 and they work great. Unfortunately the ear pads are beginning to wear on the edges, there is about a molecule of vinyl covering the form pads which for what you pay for this headset is unacceptable. I have ordered the sheep skin ear pads hoping that the leather is at least two molecules thick and might last a little longer. They have not had a lot of use.

It's a TRRS. But is it a stereo headset or wired as mono (L) in both ears?

Actually not. It’s aparently wired for mono L (ch1) only in both ears, even with the stereo cable and a stereo source.
