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 Review


Want tiny, inexpensive headphones with smooth, warm sound and great bass — and offer isolation and a remote control and don't need them to fold? Bingo!, here you go.

RHA SA950i On-ear Headphones


The RHA SA950is pose an alright value for money ratio if you use Apple i-devices. Unfortunately, there is no Android option, although it would only take minor modifications to the already separate cable. The bass on these supra aural headphones is...

i-device remote, 3 year warranty, Good bass, Good wearing comfort, Light weight, User replaceable cable, Durable cable

Comfort not perfect, Midrange and treble performance not ideal, No Android option, Build quality less than desirable for the price

RHA SA950i On-Ear Headphones Review


Not everyone here can afford professional grade studio headphones that will rock your wallet up in the high hundreds, but I could be wrong. However, what I can promise is that nobody is coming to us to find the cheapest and worst quality headphones...

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

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.
