A well practiced process finally achieves a consisent and high standard product worthy of the RHA name.
The T20i's ergonomic driver housings are constructed using the metal injection moulding process.

Well, I am kind of a collector. I can't stick to a headphone for long. I have got one audioquest night hawk, one audize ishine 10, almost all Bose line ups, senheiser i80 etc. All of them are good and stars in their own area of expertise. Why RHA i20 then?My last purchase from headphone zone was ishine10. Though simply the best sounding in-ear possibly available in 50k zone, it has a flaw. It's painful for long use and impossible with a pillow under my head. So I went for RHA. It's very very comfortable.Non protruding and solidly built and have used for 3-4hrs at one go with no discomfort at all. But sound part is good but not jawdroppingly so. It's very bassy and sometimes too much. Filters are gimmicky, especially bass one. Sometimes you have to decrease the volume to control too bassy getting into crappy zone. If you don't like thumping bass, it's not your cup of tea. For me....It's comfortable, stylish and interesting bass heavy iem and I love it that way. Instrument separation and sound stage is good but not outstanding like Bose or audize. Bass is controlled than senheiser. But comfort and built is far too superior to all iem I have used till date.
Sound - Amazing sound quality. Base is superb. Filters do make a difference to my ears.
Quality - Its a tank.
Comfort- This is the only area where I feel not so cool. It doesnt fit so well...over the ear is a little off the hook. VERY IMPORTANT to find the right ear bud for you. I was almost about to return the product until I found the right on. It changed the whole experience. But i keep making it fit inside so that I can enjoy the quality at best. still trying to get used to the over ear design.
RHA - T20i
Simply the best. Full stop
These earphones have everything. Excellent audio quality, deep bass, amazing build quality and on top of that, its loaded with accessories to fit anyone and everyone's style. 10 pairs of ear tips, that's just insane. Including two pairs of Comply comfort foam tips. You cannot ask for more. Although, the Comply comfort foam tips take some getting used to. (Still haven't gotten used to them tbh) Take your time patiently to test out all the ear tips, to make sure which one suits you best. (Took me around 5 days - talk about being spoilt for choices) If this was not enough, they have 3 different sets of tuning filters to serve every audiophiles' needs. The build quality right from the cable, the over the ear design to the stainless steel finish is simply exquisite. The elastic coil at the jack is just the icing on the cake. Perfect for people who are tired of their earphone cables breaking off. (Had 3 Bose earphones broken due to it) This is the real deal. This is complete product. Everything you can ask from your earphones. Don't let the price tag put you off, yes, it is a bit on the steep side, but keep it in your wishlist and save up for it. If you are a music lover, any genre of music, trust me, they are worth the wait. RHA T20i is truly the Aston Martin of earphones. If you can afford it, close your eyes and go for it. You will be amazed. Guaranteed.
