If you’ve read more than one of our articles before, you know Roland gear is some of our favorite when it comes to headphones in particular. As we continue a new year with new gear, this particular model stood out to us because of specs and overall quality it promised. Although advertised specifically for V-drums, you can of course span this across a majority of other electronic drum sets in the market. You can even use these for other audio listening uses as well, which we will cover shortly. Let’s check out the Roland RH-300V Headphones.
One of our favorite headphone brands in the market, Audio-Technica, has continued their impressive takeover of the audiophile gear world. We saw a brand new ATH-M70x studio headphones appearance at the NAMM show, and to pair alongside them is their twin, the R70x, holding it down as the flagship models of their popular headphone lineup. When I first heard A-T was making another open-back headphone, I was super excited because I’ve been using their M50’s since they came out. They’ve been focusing on merely closed-back studio headphones and smart device earbuds lately, so their re-entrance into the reference world is intriguing. Their builds and overall sound quality match some of the most popularly marketed headphones out there, and since I mix my own music, I needed to see what these were about. Let’s take a look at the all-new Audio-Technica R70x Open-Back Headphones and see what it has to offer.
Just when we thought we’d been overly-impressed by Audio-Technica, we’re hit with a big release at the NAMM show this year. New for the year 2015, they’ve added an even higher version to their ever-growing in popularity M (stands for Monitor) headphone line: The Audio-Technica ATH-M70x Headphones. We had a chance to try these on and give them a listen, so we wanted to share with everybody our findings (jotted down our thoughts quickly in a handy notebook beside us). Although we’re huge AT fans, we will admit that we were skeptical considering these are entering the price range of some of the heavy-hitters out there (looking at you, Sennheiser and Beyer). So what’s the verdict?
If you haven’t heard of them yet, we recommend checking out the new LilGadgets Untangled Pro! They are wireless Bluetooth headphones made specifically for children, positively reviewed by a lot of people around the net for helping your kids have a more hassle-free experience with their music, apps and games, movies, etc . We’re pretty obsessed with headphones and staying up to date on the latest styles around the net, and once these popped up on Amazon we wanted to give them a try and write a review on them.
We can’t reiterate how happy we’ve been with Audio-Techncia‘s new studio monitor headphone line. We’ve received some great feedback on our best Audio-Technica headphones article, and although the ATH-M40x won that award, we are still giving attention to their lowest model of the line, the ATH-M20x. Although it is around $50 retail and the models above it offer some larger driver numbers and frequency ranges, this is an incredible quality headphone at an affordable price.
