Senal SMH-1000 Studio Headphones Review

Senal_SMH-1000 Studio Headphones
Headphones are an important part of proper audio dissection whether in the studio or the field. They are portable, light weight and offer an atmosphere void of ambient noise.  The Senal SMH-1000 studio headphones have been with me for several weeks now and to this point I am very pleased.

There are many headphones in the sub-$100 category. Most will agree that the Sony MDR-7506 are the industry standard for audio engineers, even favored above much more expensive competitors. Having said that, the Senal SMH-1000 is a direct copy of the Sony’s with, in my opinion, some important improvements. The Senal headphones have comfortable, replaceable ear cushions; twist-lock detachable cables (3’ straight and 10’ coiled) with a 1/4 inch and 3.5mm connector; padded headband and foldable/collapsible design and at about $90 are very close in price to the Sony’s.

Audio Technica ATH-M70x Review from MKBHD

Audio Technica ATH-M70x Headphones

MKBHD just published his review on the new Audio Technica ATH-M70x headphones. Check out the video review below.

The M70x headphones are a step up from the popular Audio Technica M50x headphones and are geared more toward professional use with a flatter frequency response. MKBHD says the new M70x are a great choice for production environments but if you just want some good closed-back headphones for listening to music, the M50x are probably a better choice due to the price and the boosted low and high frequencies.

You can find the Audio Technica ATH-M70x headphones here on Amazon.com.
