Roland Headphones Underrated? - Page 2

post #16 of 18

Thanks for the RH-A30 comments. I still use the RH-300 and it's going strong. Use it a lot while editing and for judging sound when making videorecordings. The fit is very comfortable and one could wear this headphone for hours. Also let other people use them on location and so far nothing broke. It is sturdy and lightweight, so ideal for my purpose. Sometimes listening to a recording of someones voice can be frighteningly realistic (when a good mic is used). Not only the voice itself but also its position in space is reproduced so nice.

 

Have to laugh about the amazing number of 'red B' type phones that you see out on the streets so often. They are sold for (much) more then the Roland but they are quite the opposite in their qualities... completely overrated, and not worthy of the price that people pay for them. The number of sold and reviewed RH-300 headphones might be very limited but I wouldn't mind about that at all...

I was looking for reviews of the Roland RH-A30s today and was surprised how little there is except in Japanese. I've been using these for several years now and cannot praise them enough. I've used Sennheisers and AKG in the past, and when I needed a new pair of phones, I went into the shop and spent about 3 hours testing different phones with music from my own label that I knew extremely well; I had every intention of buying AKGs again, but the Rolands just killed everything else in the $200-$300 price range, not even close! The accuracy, particularly in the low end, is much much better than the AKGs. Unlike almost every other pair of headphones I've ever used, with the Rolands I could mix a track on phones alone, play it out, and not be terribly surprised by what I was hearing. Headphones you can trust. The upper highs are a bit crisp I think, but not unreasonably so, and more than made up for by the best low-end definition I've heard in this price range. Recommended.

Bought me some Roland RH-200's and I will be offering up my impressions of them! Especially put up against my old cans (BD DT770, Sennheiser HD 558/439, JVC DX3, and Marley Revolutions). I got high hopes!
