The S500 Universal's micro-sized in-ears assure a comfortable fit for any ear size and are backed by RHA's rock solid Three Years Manufacturer's Warranty. These in-ears have the smallest dynamic drivers in the world that deliver accurate and detailed sound. The aluminium RHA S500 Universal delivers exciting, immersive audio in addition to unparalleled comfort for any ear size.
The beautiful and detailed engineering, use of premium materials and plethora of accessories are what make this Scottish manufacturer stand out. A well-practised process finally achieves a consistent and high standard product worthy of the RHA name.
The RHA S500 Universal are almost entirely engineered using strong and resilient aerospace grade aluminium. Not only does the aluminium give these earphones a premium finish but also makes them extremely durable even after extensive use.
The S500 Universal was exclusively unveiled at Europe’s biggest consumer electronics trade show, IFA, in Berlin, Germany in September 2015. It came as no surprise when they declared their astounding 3-year manufacturer's warranty.
RHA's specifically engineered remote is now Universal. Both Android and iOS users can now easily use the one-button remote to take and end calls, play, pause and change tracks (2 clicks to play the next track and 3 clicks to play the previous track) and access digital assistants seamlessly.
Though small in size, the S500 Universal's micro dynamic driver (model 140.1) produces vibrant and full-range sound reproduction without compromise. Engineered for maximum output from within the headphone's diminutive aluminium housings, the 140.1 excels at delivering high-quality sound.
The S500 Universal is designed to fit comfortably and securely inside the ear canal, minimising external noise intrusion in order to produce uninhibited, authentic audio reproduction. The headphone is supplied with seven sets of eartips in a variety of sizes and styles in order to ensure the best noise isolating fit for any ear. These include a selection of dual density and double flange silicone eartips.
Weighing just 14g, the RHA S500's lightweight aluminium body should not be deceived as fragile. They are more sturdy and durable than many other earphones at this price-point. The lightweight build further helps in reducing ear fatigue. Now your long-listening sessions do not have to take a pause.
The S500 Universal's frequency response goes as low as 16Hz and as high as 22Khz (which is even more than the human listening ability), thereby capturing every possible frequency to give a rich and detailed sound.

|Our Verdict|| |
Scottish brand offering a 3-year warranty and the best in class build quality.
Bass that'll feel almost like an earthquake, but will tend to overpower the rest of the sound.
A high impedance earphone that requires an AMP to get the optimum output.
An in-ear earphone with hybrid drivers which delivers a powerful bass, and the 3-button remote and mic make it easy to use with both Android & iOS
Possibly I am not very treble friendly listener. I like flat style and get low, mid and high stages with clarity and lil textured bass.
This earphone is great for lil treble lovers and balanced sound overall.
These are good ear phones with beautiful audio clarity.. But the Base is not up to the mark.. For me Base found to be very less and when compared with RHA MA 390 U, I found MA 390 U to have good Base, enough audio clarity and found to be pleasant to hear all kinds of songs.. Even some 80's songs.. So my choice is MA 390 U which is awesome..
The build quality is premium but the sound is not balanced. There's too much treble generated which is sharp for the ears. It's good for calls but not worth spending 3K.
Sound quality is superb....the earphone is very light weighted ...fits perfectly in ears... moreover the warranty of 3 years!
Nice sound quality(bass,vocals,treble).
Bass not boosted but not much punchy as expected.
Vocals are bit low but excellent fell and quality.
Treble is bit higher.
Extremely light and comfortable for long period use.
It's great experience by Headphones zone and RHA team I love this headphone
