The Headphones for Digital Drums


Roland introduces the VMH-D1 V-Drums Headphones, a complete personal monitoring solution purpose-built for the electronic drumming experience. Co-developed by Roland and V-MODA, these unique headphones deliver premium sound that realizes the full sonic potential of V-Drums or any other e-kit. Comfortable to wear and outfitted with smart practical details, the VMH-D1 is an essential tool that no electronic drummer should be without.

The VMH-D1 is the first collaboration between the Roland V-Drums team and V-MODA, the leading name in headphones for DJs and electronic musicians. Working closely through many development stages, they crafted a special design that couples custom 50 mm drivers with select materials and new mounting methods to accurately translate the aggressive transients, wide frequency range, and rich overtones of every electronic drum set.

Headphones are a prime accessory for any electronic drummer, and the VMH-D1 delivers a custom-tuned sound experience that connects the player with the sound like no standard music headphones can. They’ll enjoy high-impact audio reproduction with tight, punchy bass for kick tones, warm, full midrange for the snare and toms, and smooth, extended highs for the cymbals. And with the big soundstage and crystal-clear separation, subtle drum overtones, natural cymbal decay, room sounds, and ambience effects are presented in full 3D detail.

The VMH-D1 provides long-wearing comfort with large memory foam earpads and a cushioned headband for extended playing sessions. Along with their comfortable fit, the earpads offer excellent isolation from acoustic pad noise and outside distractions. Soft and attractive, the synthetic leather covering offers moisture-wicking properties to reduce slippage and keep the phones from moving when working up a sweat.

The VMH-D1 comes with an extra-long 3 m/10 ft. cable that provides plenty of length for routing it out of the way while playing, along with a restraint for securing the cable behind the head and onto the floor behind the drum throne. A hanger is also included, which can be attached to a drum or cymbal stand to stow the headphones when not in use. A prominent red “R” on the right earcup makes it easy for the player to see the correct orientation when putting on the phones.

Though tuned for drums, the full-range VMH-D1 headphones are great for music listening too. Drummers can enjoy high-fidelity sound while jamming with favorite songs, playing with backing tracks, and recording with music production software. There’s also a shorter 1.5 m/5 ft. cable for casual listening away from the drums, plus a carrying pouch to keep the VMH-D1 protected while on the move.
