The Verge's Take on The New RHA T20is: "These Headphones come With a Gimmick That Makes A Difference"

The RHA T20is are different for the sake of being better.

The Verge says : "Headphone makers are just as susceptible to filling out spec sheets with meaningless jargon, and on first sight, I thought the RHA T20iin-ears to be just another in a long line of gimmick-laden tech products. They have a “revolutionary” DualCoil driver system, interchangeable tuning filters, and an injection-molded stainless steel build. I didn’t think something so simple as a pair of earphones required all that sophistication and expense, but having listened to them for an extended period of time, I have to say the T20is are a pleasant exception to the gimmick rule." 

RHA had previously released the T20which came without a microphone. The T20 range of headphones have DualCoil drivers inside each earphone, that uses separate parts of the diaphragm to distinguish between the low and high tune.

The T20i comes with the made for iPhone designation and the in-line microphone and are otherwise identical to the T20. Both the pairs look the same as their predecessor T10/T10i models.

The Verge further says: "Putting on the T20is for the first time was an eye-opening experience. It’s not that anything stands out in the sound of the T20is, but on the contrary, it’s the absence of any excess or distortion that is most notable. The bass produced by the T20i set is clear, precise, and just right. Neither overpowering nor underwhelming." 

Just like the other RHA headphones, the T20i are larger and heavier when compared to the day- to day use of in- ear earphones. These too aren't designed to be worn while running or for intensive workouts.

To give a final verdict, The Verge stated: "The T20is: they sound great. Whether you mess around with all the user configuration options or just rip them out of the box, they will inevitably impress you. These in-ear headphones are a great example of harnessing engineering and materials with a purpose. They’re different for the sake of being better, not just different."

You can pre order your T20i from Headphone Zone at Rs. 19,999.
