Manufacturer and content creator darling RODE introduced the NTH-100 professional over-ear headphones. I’d trust RODE to deliver a solid product across any category and the NTH-100 seem promising, as expected. They feature custom-matched drivers delivering honest frequency response with minimal distortion, along with a precision-engineered acoustic design optimised for exceptional detail and clarity.


Like any pair of worthwhile cans, they are suitable for content creation such as music production, audio editing, podcasting, streaming, and location recording. Here’s more about the RODE NTH-100 headphones…

RODE NTH-100 professional over-ear headphones

Among everything else going on, the NTH-100 feature contoured earcups, Alcantara (high-quality synthetic) cushions and RODE’s CoolTech gel. This gel absorbs and dissipates heat to cool the wearer’s ears and head. The fully-adjustable headband with FitLok™ locking system further reduces wearing fatigue. Then there are the custom-matched drivers with accurate frequency response and low distortion to make the headphons worthy of monitoring and mixing duties. As a clever and convenient touch, the removable cable with a locking connector can be connected to either earcup for maximum flexibility and convenience.


Another added touch is the ability to customise the NTH-100s with high-quality cables available in pink, green, blue and orange. These match to the channels of the RODECaster Pro and RODE Connect, so your assimilation into the RODE life will be aesthetically complete. The cables are available in 1.2m (3′11″) and 2.4m (7′10″) variants.

According to RODE, the NTH-100 drivers feature a custom voice coil with a four-layer ultra-high-tension aluminium alloy at its core, coupled to an ultra-stiff triple-layer Mylar diaphragm. These are paired with with a rare-earth neodymium magnet and innovative phase plug (inspired by the RODE’s award-winning NTG5 microphone). RODE builds the NTH-100 headphones in Australia.

RODE NTH-100 Price and availability

The RODE NTH-100 is priced around EUR 180 which is at the upper end of monitoring/studio headphones, but still quite reasonable. It is available now from distributors such as Thomann. The scope of delivery includes a carry bag, black cable with 3.5mm jack, color clips, and a 3.5mm to 6.3mm adapter (to replace all your lost ones).
