Senal SMH-1000 Overview

The SMH-1000 Professional Field and Studio Monitor Headphones from Senal feature a classic closed-back, over-the-ear, collapsible design. With features like interchangeable cables, a refined frequency response, wire guides, superior comfort, and durable materials, the SMH-1000 is ideal for studio and field applications.

Equipped with 40mm neodymium drivers at 58-ohm impedance, the SMH-1000 headphones are designed to be loud enough when attached to low powered devices such as mobile phones and MP3 players, yet robust enough to handle studio headphone amps without distortion.The over-ear, closed-back design is intended to help block unwanted outside noise, which is useful in professional field recording and studio monitoring scenarios where isolation is critical.

The headphones are designed with an EQ curve that's been tailored for a slightly enhanced low end that allows field engineers to detect wind noise more effectively and enables studio engineers to monitor bass and sub-bass frequencies. The high-frequency response has been extended to accurately reproduce spatial detail. There is also a pronounced but smooth midrange that reduces ear fatigue over prolonged periods, while maintaining focus on vocal and dialogue intelligibility.

Designed for flexibility as well as great sound, the SMH-1000 makes use of twist-lock detachable cabling. There are two detachable cables included in each box that can be used interchangeably. There is a stretchable 4 to 10' coiled cable that provides better mobility and reach, that also helps prevent snags from pulling the headphones off of your head. This can be useful when navigating through gear-cluttered recording studio environments. There is also a 3' straight cable that is useful when less slack is ideal, such as when using a waist-mounted field recorder or mixer, or when using your mobile device.

The SMH-1000 has been built with convenience, practicality, and comfort in mind. The headphones have a collapsible folding mechanism for compact storage and transport. They also have wire guides to keep the earcup wires from pinching. Furthermore, they are fitted with a padded headband and soft replaceable ear cushions to maximize comfort during extended listening.

An excellent choice for commercial recording, broadcast, home studios, and live and location sound. Also great for home and portable entertainment.
Over-ear, closed-back (circumaural) stereo headphone design to help block unwanted environmental noise. Ideal for use in professional applications such as studio or field recording.
Detachable twist-locking 10' coiled cable and 3' straight cable are included. Replacement cables also available from Senal.
Enhanced low end designed to allow field engineers to detect wind noise effectively, and for studio engineers to monitor bass and sub-bass frequencies.
Pronounced but smooth midrange tailored to reduce ear fatigue over prolonged periods while maintaining focus on vocal and dialog intelligibility.
Extended high frequency response designed to reproduce spatial detail accurately. Gradual roll off at 14 kHz allows for accurate low-level monitoring and hearing protection.
Padded headband and soft replaceable ear cushions. Replacement cushions are available separately.
Easy storage via collapsible folding mechanism.

Design flaw

By John

Sound ok in first few months. The issue with this model is the wire connector on both sides of the head band will become disconnected and there is no way to DIY fix it. Moving the head band in and out will eventually turn it into head phones that do not work on one side or the other. I wanted them to be good, but will not buy again from this company. Lasted less than a year.

I already own the Sony equivalent of these headphones to monitor on set video production but two things helped me decide to purchase these particular headphones: fabulous price and the ability to swap out the connector cord. The Sony headphones had a coiled cord way too long and it constantly got in my way. These phones come with a supplementary cord that is shorter and not coiled. The sound they produce are fine for monitoring on set live video.

More versatile than Sony's

I've been using Sony MDR V6 (old version of the ubiquitous 7506) for many years and finally bought 3 more sets of the Senal's for my camera operators. The removable cable is fantastic since they can swap out between the two included cables, a short straight cable or a long coiled one. Both cables lock securely with a 1/4 turn and they sound just fine. I have not used them extensively yet, but the camera ops and I are happy!

Great with one caveat

Great sound, comfortable fit. I just have one problem with both Senal and Sony headphones - the ear pads and the headband both start falling apart much sooner that they should - very frustrating.

As Good as advertised

Nice piece to have, especially when you have to monitor the sound going out from your systems. Good output as well.

Headphones are light with decent sound. I'm only interested in speech, don't need these for music. The best part is that these are very easy to wear and block out outside noise.

Does this headphone take the same ear pads as the Sony MDR-7506?
Asked by: Lawrence
Yes, the Senal SMH-1000 Professional Field and Studio Monitor Headphones can be used with the same type of replacement ear pads as the Sony MDR-7506 Headphones. For example, the Auray EP-MDR7506 Replacement Earpads - Pair (B&H # AUEPMDR7506) will fit on the MDR-7506 and the SMH-1000.

I own the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x, which I use for film production location sound. I'm looking for a more compact alternative that will take less space in my camera bag. Are the Senal SMH-1000 a good option in that regard?
Asked by: IVAN
The SMH-1000 is arguably a better choice for monitoring location sound. They are lighter, less bulky, and allow the wearer to pick up environmental sounds much more easily while still providing a clear listening experience.

Perhaps, but they may not have the exact molding around the connector that allows the end that goes into the headphones to remain captured.
