These New Rode NTH-100 Headphones Surprised Me On Sound And Price
It’s not to say that music doesn’t sound good in Rode’s headphones. Fed with some high-bitrate tracks, the NTH-100s are clean and straightforward. If I wanted more high or low end, I could dial that in myself with my music player’s EQ settings. By default, the headphones sounded bright without edging into sharpness; firm bass, but without the hefty kick that consumer headphones often provide.
The value showed its hand when I was doing some video editing, the flatter curve proving far more useful when trying to figure out balancing things like background audio and voiceovers. I’m not a music creator, but I suspect Rode’s promise that they’d work well for monitoring and mastering stands up there, too.
What’s astonishing is the price tag. When I first started listening to the NTH-100s, I didn’t know Rode’s final figure: $149. I’d have guessed at twice that amount, honestly.
