Rode NTH-100 review: Super-comfy studio cans


Rode's first set of headphones are beautifully designed and comfortable, but do they have what it takes to beat the world's favorite studio monitors?

Sleek, modern design Superbly cushioned comfort Very good passive sound isolation Dual locking cable inputs Very clear and balanced sound

Can't fold or swivel 90 degrees Heavier than most studio monitors Narrow headband

“Those who need a tool for critical listening have a comfy, capable new option in the Rode NTH-100 headphones.”

Rode’s first pair of headphones offer a comfortable and balanced way to monitor audio


Headband locks, comfy ear cushions, and unique design

Very comfortable ; Swappable cable on either side of ear cups ; Good sound ; Durable ; Lockable headband

They do not fold ; A bit bulky for some ; $50 more than industry standard Sony MDR-7506

The NTH-100s are wired, over-ear headphones designed for audio and video productions. These deliver a flatter frequency response for more accurate mixing and monitoring.

RØDE NTH-100 Review


While RØDE is well-known for its microphones and audio equipment, the Australian company released the RØDE NTH-100, its first pair of headphones, in spring 2022....

Comfortable and well-built design. Detachable 1/8" TRS cable.

Prone to inconsistencies in bass delivery. Distortion present at high volumes. Poor noise isolation performance. Bulky and can fall off of your head with moderate movement. No mic.

The RØDE NTH-100 are satisfactory for neutral sound. They have a warm, round overall sound profile that delivers a bit of extra boom to mixes. Vocals and instruments sound mellow but a bit muddy, while sibilants like cymbals are veiled. Unfortunately,...

RØDE NTH-100 Professional Over-Ear Headphones review - The Gadgeteer

The attractive design ; The ability to plug into either side ; The fantastic audio reproduction ; The long cable ; The included accessories ; That it lives up to the “RODE” quality

Røde NTH-100


Once you get over the outdated configuration, there's nothing but positive things to say about the Røde NTH-100

Articulate, convincing sound in all scenarios ; Built to last ; Good-looking (in a purposeful sort of way)

Sonic even-handedness won’t suit everybody ; Hard-wired configuration won’t be for all ; Earpads heat up over time

Once you get over the outdated configuration, there’s nothing but positive things to say about the NTH-100 wired headphones. Whether you want to use them for casual or critical listening, these Røde headphones are a compelling option.

Røde NTH-100 review: great-value wired headphones for creators (or music lovers)


Røde's first-ever headphones are a smash hit, as long as you're looking for something with super-clear and super-neutral presentation

Startlingly open, informative and confident sound ; Well made and comfortable ; Businesslike look (in a good way)

Some will require more sonic excitement ; Shorter cable is a cost option ; ‘Cooltech’ ear cushions only effective up to a point

The Røde NTH-100 tell a story in which a very reasonable sum buys you a pair of headphones that are a) deeply impressive in every sonic respect, and b) the opposite of modern. If you want to hear every nuance of your audio work without colour, they're...

RØDE NTH-100 review: perfect for podcasting and much, much more


Australian microphone brand RØDE launches its first-ever pair of headphones.

Superb comfort ; Uncoloured sound ; Adjustable fit ; Detachable cable

Fairly heavy ; Fabric earcups are harder to clean than vinyl

The RØDE NTH-100 are the perfect pair of podcast headphones.

RØDE NTH-100 Over-ear Headphones Review


Rafael Todes is rather taken by this affordable pair of closed-back headphones from a famous Australian pro-audio name…

Overall, I found RØDE’s NTH-100 to be a beautifully designed and surprisingly well-built pair of headphones. It’s both elegant and rugged, with entirely replaceable parts. In particular, the cable is relatively cheap and easy to change. Sound quality...
