Excerpt: The RHA SA-500s don’t fold, so they’re not too handy for travel, but the fabric headphone cable is detachable so it needn’t get tangled up in your bag. The earpads slide up and down a simple rail system. They’re on the small side, so require more in the way of positioning to create a decent seal. But it’s hardly a flawed design… The sound is open, clean and inviting. For the money, only the Panasonic RP-HTX 7s dig up more detail.
Excerpt: The selection of headphones on offer has never been bigger and there are plenty of options to choose from, ranging from high-end cans such as the Bose AE2 to quality earbuds like the Monster Diddybeats , to affordable headphones like the SA-500 from RHA.
