Yamaha introduces the new RH10MS Monitor Headphones with S-Logic Technology.
Yamaha tells us that he RH10MS's S-Logic 3-Dimensional Natural Surround delivers a new standard in digital surround that sends sounds "around" the listener's head, not just "into" it. They say that without relying on tricks like artificial echo or digital processing, the system allows listeners to experience music just the way the sound mixer produced it. "S-Logic is a wonderful innovation," said Kenya Austin, product manager, Yamaha Accessory Products. "Instead of hitting the inner ear directly, the signals are reflected off the surface of the outer ear in different directions. The effect simulates listening to speakers several feet away and lets listeners perceive the same volume at significantly lower sound pressure."
The RH10MS weighs 265 grams, excluding the three meter cord, and offers 18-21,000k frequency response, 32 Ohms impedance and 96 db sensitivity. The headphones, which include a 1/4" adaptor, are compatible with all audio devices and feature an ergonomic design and padded band that provide ultimate comfort for extended wear. Also included is a velour pouch for added protection during storage.
The RH10MS professional monitor headphones (MSRP: $159) are expected to ship in January, 2008.
