The RHA S500 are almost entirely engineered using aerospace graded aluminium. The sonic and durable properties of aluminium deliver the clear audio that RHA has come tot be known for.

Bought the RHA 500 earphones more than a year ago. Apr 30, 2016.
Read the hype, "Aston Martin of headphones' and I rolled my eyes.But really, as soon as I saw this beautiful thing, I have never had a better set of earphones.
They are built to last and if taken care, can truly last a few years, never had a set of earphones that lasted this much. I've swung the phone with it like a yo-yo.
For those who like to use their earphones like the Levis Jeans in the logo.
RHA, highly recommended, too bad they are now out of stock.
1 Tough cable- withstands very rough use,
2 Metal earpiece, amazing clarity, looks and feels beautiful.
3 Bass just right, giving me the beat without hearing loss, for audiophiles, not just bass lovers.
4 Bag is useful, my earphones are always at hand and untangled.
5 Custom Fit multiple rubber tips available,
6 Jack is solid metal, no bending and flexing.
7 Isolation is good, sometimes too good, blocks out all outside sound.
This was my first purchase on headphone zone, glad to see the site going strong. No one else offers this much variety and more importantly Quality.
About 24 hours burn in time was required. Good Bass and treble .I am not a fan of over powering bass and the headphone have a very balanced sound which I have come to appreciate a lot.
