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...

Good quality sound


I bought these earphones a few weeks ago and have found that they have a very good sound quality for the price. It took a while to work out how to remove and replace the ear buds, but once I'd done so I had a very good fit.

Great sound for a great price!


Had these a few weeks and I am very impressed with them. Clear and precise sound. Cord slightly longer than I like but that's being fussy. Great buy.

Excellent value for money


A reasonably priced set of headphones with good sound quality and a comfortable fit. Braided wire is easy to untangle and they look good

Amazing sound quality @ reasonable price


These earphones shouldn't sound as good as they do at this price point, easily have the sound quality of a £100 earphones. I've been a loyal Senheiser customer, but these earphones have blown away the competition.

Disappointing bass


Sound quality is high overall, with a lot of clarity in treble but the bass just isn't there. Makes for a very strange listening experience. Microphone for voice calls is poor esp in wind.

great product for good money


I bought earbuds couple weeks ago . Solid build, great sound for the price. A lot of back up buds if you lose it. Person that served me had good knowledge of product which was very helpful. Great experience

Unbelievable for the price


Bought these to replace some mid range sennheiser headphones and they are so good that they have relegated mt Shure SE425's (£200ish) and UE Triple fi10's (£220) to a draw. There's a nice 80-150kHz increase which delivers warm bass with plenty of...

RHA S500 - Amazing quality budget earphones


Bought these earphones after my loyal Ministry Of Sound earphones final gave up. I was pretty sad as the earphones were perfectly working but it was a fault in the noodle lead, so I went on the hunt for some new ones but didn't want to spend a lot of...
