RBH EP3 Earphones Conclusion

 RBH EP3 Noise Isolating Earphones YouTube Video Review

Headphones are more relevant now than they’ve ever been before, especially portable In Ear Monitors (IEM's).  Though fashion factors in hugely with seemingly countless athletes and celebrities sporting their sponsored cans wherever the cameras are pointed, audiophiles should take note as well.  For $179, you could buy an OK pair of speakers and get good sound at home in a few seats, or, you could buy the new RBH EP3 and get excellent sound, all the time, everywhere.  In fact, for a limited time (sale ends 10/20/15), you can get the fantastic RBH EP3 for an introductory price of only $99.  At that price, the value proposition is HUGE, and I liked the earphones a lot.  The RBH EP3 sound great, are ruggedly constructed, tangle-resistant, comfortable, and do a great job of blocking outside noise.  I can’t think of a better way to get great sound at this price.  Highly recommended!

I purchased these ear buds based on Marshall’s review and he is spot on about the fantastic bass, neutral mid’s & high’s, the foam bud covers making long conversations or extended music listening a real pleasure, above average microphone function(s) and no more muttering under your breath untangling the cord. A decent carrying case would have been nice too as Marshall noted, since the one that comes with them is useless but at $99 this is fantastic buy; at $179 … not so much. I highly recommend them at the sale price.

RBH has introduced the mid-range EP3 Noise Isolating Earphones that showcase just how good affordable, portable audio can be. In an age where headphones can be purchased for a little as the price of a happy meal, or as much as the cost of a used car, RBH’s EP3 earphones clearly hit the sweet spot in value for high-performing headphones at a low price.

At the introductory price of $99/pair (sale ends 10/20/15) these simply can't be beat. Check them out!
