senal headphones

Sometimes I stumble across some gear that’s useful, and I want to share it with you guys.  I’ve been using these Senal SMH-1000 headphones for my video and audio work for over a year now and they do a really great job at a good price point (under $100).  I use them plugged into my Canon XA-20, or into my Sound Devices Mix Pre-D when I’m recording tutorial videos at my computer.  They have a detachable cable which is great because if the cable or plugs ever fail, you don’t have to replace the entire set of headphones, just get a new cable!  A replacement 3m coil is only $15, or a 3ft straight cable is $10.  Incidentally, the headphones come with both types of cable out of the box.

I’d hesitate to call this a review because I’m really not an expert in headphones and I can’t speak for many other alternatives. All that I can say is that to me they sound good and they’re comfortable for extended periods of use. At the low price point, I don’t doubt that there are higher fidelity options out there, but for monitoring my editing and shooting work these have done the job just fine.
