RHA S500u In-Ear Headphones review

 

A David vs Goliath story in audio

Excellent build quality ; Balanced, rich audio ; Tons of tips included

Sibilant at times ; Narrow soundstage ; Cable noise

The RHA S500u are an incredible value, offering stunning sound and build quality for the price. These headphones easily stand toe-to-toe against competitors costing twice as much. They may not be the last word in resolution, dynamic range or...

Just okay

 

I bought these to replace soundmagic e10s and went solely on reviews as I was unable to listen due to their hygiene reasons, but these do not compare to the e10s in my opinion, the e10s have so much more depth and bass. So I'm a bit disappointed, I did...

Good quality and warranty

 

Best earphones I've owned in years, good quality sound given the price and great design too. Three year warranty the biggest positive.

Stopped working within 3 months

 

One earphone started acting up after just a few weeks and went entirely within three months. Maybe just a dud pair, but not great. Richer Sounds replaced them for me immediately to be fair. Other than that they're fine, about what you'd expect for the...

Lacking bass

 

Build quality amazing and love the fact they're British, but the bass is a bit lacking. Perhaps they'll improve.

Wizard of Oz tinny

 

Bought them yesterday to replace AKG Y20's on the recommendation of the shop staff. After a day of use I'm not sure what I prefer more, my tinnitus or these headphones. The build is fine, the packaging is fine. The noise is like a 1940's radio show...

Bass poor but good for price.

 

Bought half an hour ago. Ill be using for cycling and prefer good bass so probably wont use them for long as its a little weak. The high end is very clear though if thats what your looking for. Also solid alu construction might be handy for when I...

Great sound for the price

 

After a spare pair of earphones as few things annoy as much as being miles from anywhere when they break. Tiny bit on the quiet side but they carry the warm tones of Motown nicely. Good stuff.

Great sound, but build suffers

 

Great sound for the price. Much better than any headphones sold by Apple or Samsung. These are a bit basey to my taste and resins selection is good, but not fantastic. Connector is very long and not durable, so these must be worn with care at all times.
