Summary: Final Thoughts
When I first received the SA950i’s I was a little skeptical at how well they would sound and if they would even be comfortable at all. Boy was I impressed only after a few hours of use! Most importantly let’s talk about how they sound.
Pros: – Price, – Great sound quality, – Very comfortable, – Lightweight, – Inline controls and microphone
Cons: – Mostly made of plastic, – No carry case / bag included
Excerpt: The RHA SA950i headphones are designed to deliver professional audio in a compact and lightweight form factor. Featuring 40mm titanium-coated mylar drivers, a detachable 1.5 meter fabric braided cable, adjustable chrome sliders for a better fit, and gold plated connections, it certainly seems like a...
Summary: The RHA SA950is pose an alright value for money ratio if you use Apple i-devices. Unfortunately, there is no Android option, although it would only take minor modifications to the already separate cable.
Pros: i-device remote, 3 year warranty, Good bass, Good wearing comfort, Light weight, User replaceable cable, Durable cable
Cons: Comfort not perfect, Midrange and treble performance not ideal, No Android option, Build quality less than desirable for the price
Summary: It is a simple affair to adjust these headphones to fit and when placed over the ears they are quite comfortable. The lightweight construction coupled with the soft material that lines the speakers makes it easy to wear them for an extended period of time.
Excerpt: This is my third RHA product review, and I’m becoming attuned to what RHA is trying to accomplish. RHA is a Scottish audio company who are making good-sounding and – more importantly – affordable earphones and headphones.
Excerpt: Not everyone here can afford professional grade studio headphones that will rock your wallet up in the high hundreds, but I could be wrong. However, what I can promise is that nobody is coming to us to find the cheapest and worst quality headphones available.
Summary: 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.
