Yamaha Announces RH10MS Professional Monitor Headphones
Yamaha has announced the RH10MS Professional Monitor Headphones with S-Logic Technology. The RH10MS’s S-Logic 3-Dimensional Natural Surround delivers a digital surround experience that sends sounds around the listener’s head, not just into it. 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. (How this is good for monitoring is yet to be determined… —Ed.)
“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.”

We like the white plating on the outer ear cuffs, which remind us of the signature white-cone studio monitor speakers on Yamaha’s NS-10s.
