    RAGHAV SOMANI

    I started Headphone Zone almost 10 years ago because most big retailers had little to no understanding of electronic accessories, people had little understanding and few options. Customers ended up having a lousy experience in-store and simply bought the cheapest earphone they found.
    Our aim is to take the Headphone Zone experience to the length and breadth of music listeners in India. How we can do this is by helping you experience better sound, and provide you with enough information enabling informed choices.

    My hobbies include collecting Airline Baggage Tags. I also hold a Guinness World Record for the largest collection in the world. While I’m not an audiophile, I am a passionate musician and I love listening to Rock, Pop and Jazz.

    About Raghav
  • Founded Headphone Zone in 2011
  • Founded the Indian Audiophile Forum in 2017, a growing community of 10,000+ members.
  • Travels to industry events like CanJam Singapore and IFA yearly
  • Spends every morning at the breakfast table with his standard meal of idli and sambar.
  • Spends every night (or every time he has to wait for his spouse to get ready) at his Roland piano playing pop tunes from memory.
  • Raghav’s passion for headphones and his commitment to Headphone Zone exemplifies our mission to create customer delight through every touchpoint on our website.

    LIGHTWEIGHT AND DURABLE ALUMINIUM BUILD

    The RHA S500 Universal is almost entirely engineered from strong and resilient aerospace-grade machined aluminium. Not only does it give these earphones a premium finish but it also makes them extremely durable even after extensive use. Weighing just 14g, the lightweight build further helps in reducing ear fatigue.

    FULL-RANGE SOUND REPRODUCTION WITHOUT COMPROMISE

    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. Though small in size, its 140.1 micro-dynamic drivers produce vibrant and full-range sound reproduction without compromise. Engineered for maximum output from within the headphone's diminutive aluminium housings, it excels at delivering high-quality sound.

    SMALL ON SIZE, BIG ON ISOLATION. SEVEN SETS OF EAR TIPS FOR THE RIGHT FIT

    The S500 Universal is designed to fit comfortably and securely inside the ear canal, minimizing external noise intrusion in order to produce uninhibited, authentic audio reproduction. The earphone is supplied with seven sets of ear tips in a variety of sizes and styles in order to ensure the best noise isolating fit for any ear.

    Experts Verdict "The S500 are versatile earphones that work especially well for pop. Fast, balanced and detailed with a 3 year warranty, these are definitely worth the price tag, and they’re as light as a feather."
    Major HiFi
    "They has managed to spring a surprise with the RE-400 'Waterline' in-ears. They provide a subtle, refined and neutral sound that may not appeal to bass-heads, but will certainly be of interest to purists."
    Gadgets 360

    "I would recommend the E11C if you are looking for an entry-level earphone under £50. The build and design are outstanding this time for the price and the earphone doesn’t easily get tangled."
