"They're super tough and the included accessories are nice for $50, but don't expect the S500 to live up to the standard set by RHA's more expensive products."
"The S500 has a polished and refined sound – these headphones aren’t for those who want a huge bass bump. If you want good sound without burning a hole in your pocket, the S500 could be just what the doctor ordered. "
"Considering the price and the mixed experience the earphone offers, there is a lot to weigh in before buying the RHA S500. It has a nice, suave design. It offers decent to great audio quality."
"At Rs. 3,999, the RHA S500i is an excellent option and delivers a clean, neutral sound that you're unlikely to find elsewhere at this price. The RHA S500 is meant for listeners who prefer a more neutral sound, or listen to softer and gentler genres of music."
"The RHA S500i headphones deliver a bass-forward, yet very bright, the sound signature at an affordable price. The S500 flaunts a sleek, stylish look, with earpieces that are tiny and exceptionally lightweight."

"The sound signature is quite bright and sparkly mids all that much. The detail is nice and the bass is hard hitting. The detail is nice and the bass is hard hitting. It’s like a nice smooth and shallow U across the frequency spectrum. The S500 features aluminium alloy construction. "
