The RØDE NTH-100 boasts 40mm dynamic drivers that are custom-matched, featuring a design based around a custom voice coil with a four-layer ultra-high-tension aluminum alloy serving as its core. The core is coupled to an ultra-stiff triple-layer Mylar diaphragm, resulting in highly accurate frequency response and exceptional clarity. RØDE describes the headphones as “natural-sounding headphones, with a sound signature akin to open-backs but with all the advantages of closed-backs.” Moreover, according to the company, it has no issues with spill when recording close to a microphone.
The audio produced by the high-grade components is enhanced with the unique contoured earcup construction to the shape of the ears. The form and build of the earcups and the high-density memory foam promote excellent noise isolation and reduced standing modes and frequency resonances. Most of all, the design offers first-class comfort to users, thanks to the high-end, durable Alcantara placed on the earpads and headband. The material often used in sports cars and high-end fashion promises ultra-high quality due to its supremely soft and breathable characteristics. In addition to that, RØDE included a layer of its revolutionary CoolTech gel underneath the Alcantara, allowing absorption and dissipation of heat. This can be useful for individuals who often handle hour-long audio sessions that usually cause fatigue from wearing uncomfortable headphone models. Its headband made of high-strength spring steel with a scratch-resistant coating is also adjustable. It uses RØDE’s FitLok locking system to achieve and maintain the correct fitting that suits you.
The practical features of RØDE NTH-100 further extend to other sections, such as the cable attachments on both earcups, high-quality locking connectors for the attachments, easy left and right earcup identification through luminous letters, color-coding and braille, and so much more.
