MESSE12: New Roland Headphones


Roland has introduced the RH-A7 Monitor Headphones, a high-fidelity monitoring solution for digital pianos and other audio listening applications. Featuring a lightweight, open-air design and wide-ranging sound, Roland say that the RH-A7 is ideal for enjoying the rich tonal quality and superior dynamic response of their digital pianos.
A Roland PR person told Sonic State, "As compared to closed headphones and earbuds, the open-air RH-A7 produces a more balanced and natural sound, with a wide soundstage and smooth bass response. When used with a Roland digital piano, the RH-A7 delivers a truly organic listening experience, with an openness that is much more like hearing the instrument through its own speaker system. From delicate pianissimo to forceful fortissimo, these headphones accurately reproduce all the subtle nuances of the player's performance.
In addition to superior sound quality, the RH-A7's open-air design brings other benefits. The headphones are light in weight, so they're easy to wear for long practice sessions without fatigue. Their design also allows the sound and air to flow freely for a natural and comfortable listening environment."

The RH-A7 comes standard in black with handsome red earpiece covers. The RH-A7-WH offers a different look with an elegant, all-white finish.
Pricing and Availability:
The RH-A7 and RH-A7-WH will be available in late spring. More information:
