RHA SA950i Headphone Review
by Tom Andry — December 09, 2012
|Drivers||40mm Titanium mylar|
|Cable||1.5m Fabric braided|
|Connections||3.5mm Gold plated|
- Fantastic sound
- Easy to operate controls
- 1.5m braided cable doesn't transmit sound
- A bit bass heavy
It's hard for me to believe that the RHA SA950i on-ear headphones only retail for $60. Sonically, they perform much better than their price would indicate. While they may not be the most linear or accurate headphones I've tested, they are easily one of my favorites. With well extended highs, engaging bass, and no real weak point, you could do a lot worse for $60. Heck, you could do a lot worse for much more. I only feel sorry for those of you with large heads as you won't be able to enjoy the RHA SA950i as I have. If this is what RHA can do for $60, I want to see what they can do with a $200 headphone—though I'm afraid my head might just explode from the sonic goodness.
