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...

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.
