RHA S500i In-Ear Headphone Features
Following the successful launch of the new flagship T20 in-ear headphone earlier this year, award-winning headphone manufacturer RHA has announced a new entry-level proposition, the S500i.
The new in-ear headphone will feature an ultra-compact design in aluminium, made possible by a specially engineered micro dynamic driver. The 140.1 model driver promises faithful listening experiences, having been engineered to deliver vibrant, immersive and detailed sound reproduction.
According to Lewis Heath, Product Director at RHA: “The S500i is for those seeking an affordable, compact in-ear headphone that doesn’t sacrifice sound or build quality,”. “By developing a micro dynamic driver that can offer exciting, full range sound reproduction and using aluminium alloy housings, we’ve been able to make the product incredibly small and lightweight and therefore comfortable for any size or shape of ear. I’m excited for people to experience it at IFA in Berlin this year.”
In addition to offering a three-button remote and microphone for use with compatible Apple devices, the S500i’s 1.35m cable also features a two part material design; the upper half using a traditional TPE finish while the lower half featuring a tangle-resistant, fabric braided outer. Accessories include seven pairs of silicone ear tips in a variety of designs and sizes with holder, a fabric carry pouch and clothing clip.
