RHA SA950i On-Ear Portable Headphones ( with Remote)


You may have never heard of RHA -- short for Reid and Heath Acoustics products -- but it's a small Scottish headphone company that makes some pretty decent products for affordable prices. We've taken a look at some of its in-ear models, including the...

The RHA SA950i on-ear headphones are lightweight, offer a comfortable fit (especially for on-ears), have a detachable cloth-covered cord with a built-in Apple-friendly remote and microphone, and they sound good for the money. You also get a three-year...

Earcups' glossy finish may get scratched over time and the headphones don't fold up for storage.

While the RHA SA950i may not excel in any one area, it's an all-around solid on-ear headphone that won't break the bank.

RHA SA950i


RHA is one of several headphone makers marketing its product as providing “professional sound” for a low price. Judging by the in-ear MA450i and on-ear SA-850 we reviewed previously, that marketing hasn't been totally warranted. Though we enjoyed their...

Approachable, quality sound ; Smart styling and features ; Light and convenient ; Excellent value

Lack of definition in high-end ; Inconsistent performance among music genres ; Generally narrow frequency response

At $60, it’s hard to ask for much more than what these headphones deliver: approachable sound in a tidy, stylish package.

RHA SA950i


About once a month, I hear some variation of "I'm not willing to spend more than $50" in the same breath as "I want a really great pair of headphones—what do you recommend?" In the past, I would recommend spending more money—cheap headphones are...

Quality audio performance with no distortion at top volumes. Affordable, but doesn't look cheaply made. Removable cable adds value. Cable has inline microphone and controls for iPhone, iOS and Android devices

Can be uncomfortable over long listening periods. Highly-sculpted frequency response not for purists. Vocals on certain genres can sound a bit muffled

The RHA SA950i is solid option for bass-lovers on a budget.

RHA SA950i Headphone Review


It's hard for me to believe that the RHA SA950i on-ear headphones only retail for $60. Sonically, they perform much better than their price would indicate - I can only imagine what they'd do for $200.

Fantastic sound ; Light ; Easy to operate controls ; 1.5m braided cable doesn't transmit sound

A bit bass heavy

RHA SA950i headphones review


This is my third RHA product review, and I'm becoming attuned to what RHA is trying to accomplish. RHA is a Scottish audio company who are making good-sounding and – more importantly – affordable earphones and headphones. It's common knowledge that...

Cool, retro look ; Quite comfortable ; Mic ; Warm sound

Don't fold for storage/travel ; No protective case

Hands-on: RHA SA950i Headphone


Audioholics checks out the budget-priced RHA over-the-ear headphones.

While they may not be the most linear or accurate headphones I’ve tested, they are easily one of my favorites. With well extended highs, engaging bass, and no real weak point, you could do a lot worse for $60. Heck, you could do a lot worse for much more.

RHA SA950i Portable Headphones


Following on from the RHA CA-200 Noise isolating headphone review last week, Benchmark Reviews is all set to take a look at the higher priced RHA SA950i On-Ear Portable Headphones from Reid Heath Acoustics. The SA950i headphones are designed primarily...

Detachable braided cable ; Inline Remote and Microphone ; Good design ; Excellent bass response ; Reasonable value ; Small and lightweight and compact ; Bass doesn't cloud high and mid range ; Sound leakage kept to a minimum

Lack of horizontal pivot adjustment ; Not as comfortable as they could be ; Need amplifying to really shine ; Ear pads don't appear to be replaceable

Important: In this section I am going to write a brief five point summary on the following categories; Performance, Appearance, Construction, Functionality and Value. These views are my own and help me to give the RHA SA950i On-Ear Portable Headphones...

RHA SA950i Headphones Review


It would be fair to say that professional-grade audio and consumer-grade pricing are two characteristics that are usually considered to be mutually exclusive. In the SA950i pair of headphones, RHA aim...

Excellent audio quality ; Great balance between deep bass and high treble ; Comfortable, freely-adjustable fit ; Lightweight and rugged ; Clear speech-recognition from the in-line microphone ; Good set of input functions via the microphone-based...

Can cause ears to get irritatingly warm after a short period of time ; Input functions via the microphone-based buttons don’t work with all common devices

KitGuru says: A well-balanced set of lightweight headphones that provides excellent audio quality at a good – mid-range – price point.

RHA SA950i Headphones Australian Review: Elegant Excellence


The headphone market is a cluttered one. You can head down to your local electronics retailer and be bombarded with choice. In-ear, over ear, buds, earpods, on-ear — the list is endless, and depending on what you end up deciding, the cost can be...

Yes. For the money you pay versus the sound quality you get, this is a no-brainer.
