RØDE is here to debut their first headphone offering for the crowd, the NTH-100. And the brand has opted for premium materials, which will be from Alcantara. But the elephant in the room is what the collab actually means for RØDE’s fans.
Well, RØDE’s sound quality does not require any introduction. It is among the top positions on the list.
Most of the audio equipment from RØDE is actually for the content creators, which includes podcasters, sound professionals, musicians, local recordists, and streamers. And those are the customers that RØDE is targeting with the NTH-100.
The headphones also aim to deliver the ultimate level of convenience combined with unbeatable comfort. That means you will be capable of working on your content for a prolonged amount of time without facing any comfort issues. But how does RØDE manage to offer that?
That is where the material from Alcantara steps in. Alcantara dresses up the headphone with a premium headband and ear cups. The material that is present in these two key areas is at the highest level when it comes to breathability and softness. You might not even feel that you are wearing a headphone.
Alcantara also integrates other technical features, which blend perfectly well with the ergonomics of the NTH-100 headphones. Furthermore, the longevity and the durability levels are up to the mark for the new headphones. The premium material from Alcantara is highly wear-resistant. That means the headphones’ comfort level will last for a prolonged time.
