Reloop RHP-30 Headphones Announced
Reloop is on a roll at this year's Musikmesse show in Frankfurt. First they announced the new RMX-80 Digital DJ Mixer and now they've announced their new "flagship" professional DJ Headphones called the RHP-30's. These new over-the-ear style DJ headphones have a rugged metal and rubber build, soft and comfortable memory foam in the earcups and headband, and a very high output rating for mixing in noisy environments. They feature 40mm drivers with deep bass handling and crisp output of highs and mids...The RHP-20's were some of our favorite headphones, so I can't wait to get my hands on a set of these to see what they've done differently.
We'll definitely get a set of Reloop RHP-30 headphones into the lab for a full out HD-Video review when they are released in August 2013, but check out the full press release and our review of the RHP-20 headphones below until they come our way...
Reloop RHP-20 Headphones Review
Incredibly sturdy and featuring an outstandingly powerful sound: this is how Reloop’s premium headphones can be described. With a sophisticated construction optimized for DJs, especially designed for rough club surroundings, the RHP-30 emphasizes its stylish features: the headphones’ minimalist coolness features high-quality components and thanks to high output, transparent and bass-driven sound characteristics, the RHP-30 gurantees smooth mixing, clean productions and fulminant listening pleasure.
Minimalist Vision of the Future
A combination of high-quality components gives the RHP-30 its minimalist appearance and a consistent design which is impressive due to the clearly arranged components, starting with the ear cups’ rubber paint finish, solid aluminum brackets to the hard-plastic headband with classy Reloop sign.
Reloop has directed special attention to the headphones’ drivers which cleanly separate frequencies and deliver a powerful sound despite the high power output - perfect for loud club surroundings. The transparent resolution in the high-frequency range caters for dynamics and enables accurate, transparent and encompassing sound reproduction of the whole sound spectrum. That is why the RHP-30 headphones can also hold their own when it comes to studio applications.
The RHP-30 headphones are extremely sturdy and laid out for longevity and they can endure the most unfavorable wind, weather and club conditions. However, the weight is marginal thanks to the flat comfort construction which also offers wearing comfort on the highest level due to the ear cups’ and headband’s memory foam padding.
Three different cable types are included for versatile usage. The helix cable is intended for DJ sessions while the plain cable with its Smartphone control unit is perfect for outdoor use on the road. And HiFi fans will love the flatcable.
