First Look: RHA SA950i On-Ear Portable Headphones

1:36 /

The RHA SA950i On-Ear Portable Headphones are pretty good headphones at an affordable price.

-I'm David Carnoy, executive editor for cnet.com, and I'm here with the RHA SA950i headphones. These aren't on-ear model and they're from a small Scottish company that makes pretty good headphones for an affordable price. A few things I like about this model, they are lightweight and they also are pretty comfortable for on-ear model. I'm not a huge fan of on-ear headphones, but these are pretty comfortable. They also sound pretty good for the money. They offer a nice well-balanced sound, pretty detailed, decent bass, not a huge bass but well balanced, and the-- and they offer sort of an audio file-- profile in that they don't accentuate the treble or bass too much. Couple other small features worth noting-- This does have a detachable cord. The cord is cloth covered and there is an inline remote with a microphone that is Apple friendly for Apple friendly devices, so this does make cellphone calls as well. I had a couple of small quibbles with the design. One is that these don't fold up for more compact storage. Also, the shiny or glossy finish on the ear cups may get scratched up over time. The one good thing I will say about this, they do come with a three-year warranty, so if anything goes wrong with them during those three years, presumably, RHA will send you another pair. I'm David Carnoy and those are the RHA SA950i headphones. Thanks for watching.
