RHA SA-500


Are these on-ear headphones a route to headphone heaven for less than £35?

Good bass response, Removable cable

Not very comfortable, Limited treble resolution

RHA SA-500


Good, balanced sound

Don't fold, need positioning carefully

Pipped to the five-star post by the amazing Panasonic RP-HTX 7s, these are nevertheless a fantastic buy at the money

RHA SA-500 review


When it comes to earphones, you typically have to pay quite a lot for a decent pair of over-ear cans. Coming in at just £34.99, the RHA SA-500 buck this trend by offering great value for earphones that cover the whole ear.

Overall though, the SA-500s are stylish, well made and possess good audio quality. And for just £34.99 they are a bit of a bargain. You would be hard-pressed to find better earphones on the market at this price.

Great quality from a bargain set of earbuds

Good price; decent audio quality; nice styling

Bass isn’t quite as strong as we’d have liked

If you’re looking for a great set of earphones at a bargain price then the SA-500s certainly do the job.
