RHA T20 High Fidelity Noise Isolating Dual Coil In-Ear Headphones : excellent bass, puts Beats headphones to shame

These are very good but got too bassy for me once burnt in.

These hadphones are a winner. The sound makes me want to cry.

Bought these for my partner who listens to music through headphones a lot. He really rates these, especially as they have replaceable filters.

I most recently purchased a set of custom in-ear monitors (iems) which meant i went to an audiologist to have impressions made which in turn were used to make custom earmolds for the monitors. My experience wasn’t so great: the first set didn’t fit very well, so i went and had a second set of impressions made and whilst the second set fit better, they would only fit correctly if my head was in a particular position. For example, they don’t fit very well if i lie down. I received my t20i only yesterday, so it’s still early days. However, they fit much better than the custom monitors. You have to play around for a while to find the best ear-tip. You also have to get comfortable pushing the earpiece in such that it forms a total seal. For me, it means pushing the lower side of the earpiece in further than the upper side, if that makes sense, such that it is a bit at an angle. When i do that, i get a total seal.

These are great headphones, the sound quality is excellent, noise isolation is great when fitted correctly within your ear. That said, these are my second set of t20i headphones as the cable which fits around the ear started to break apart after a couple of months, hence the 4 stars – i’d expect headphone at this price range should last, so if the second set fail then i won’t be re-purchasing.

These are outstanding monitors. The filters do what they are supposed to do, although the neutral filters sound fantastic out of the box. Comes with loads of tips including comply foam tips and a nice case. A well engineered and well presented product. I have been searching for a decent set of iem’s that faithfully reproduces the actual sound coming through my band’s mixer, and these are what i ended up choosing. I have tried a number of iem’s including shure, that were supposed to be designed for this purpose, but none of them came close. I am not willing to spend a fortune on equipment that just cannot justify a £400 – £1000 price tag. Relatively speaking, these are a great value at £150. I think this whole industry is having a laugh, charging outrageous amounts of money for products they can manufacture for less than a tenth of the price tag. I suppose as long as people are willing to pay the price, they’ll be very happy to take their money.

I originally bought these for my wife because i thought she would appreciate the audiophile soundscape, build quality & 3 year guarantee. But she found the over the ear loop fiddly & the heavyweight earpieces uncomfortable so i got her some sound magic e10’s which are lighter & easier to put in the ear & have a thinner, lighter, shorter, prettier cable. I think these earphones are designed for man geeks like me who want earphones that have great sonics & the range rover build quality that is backed by a 3 year guarantee. 3 year guaranteeto give you some idea of how good these sound, they make my westone 3’s (which cost me £280) sound like bean cans attached with a bit of stringthey are epic & make my music sound new, detailed & lush. I keep thinking of songs i want to listen to with them & it’s exciting. They are heavy, but comfortable, solid & don’t move whilst i’m running in them. The cable is long, thick & rubbery which may bug some people but i really like it. Everything is engineered to last. I’m using inairs 1 size medium. If you’re a geek wannabe audiophile you will love them. Your wife, not so much, in my experience.

Great sound, personally i have gone for the reference tuning, and it is good enough to show up some poorer recordings. Primarily my focus is on the mid range vocals and reference was better. Bass is enhanced with the other tuning attachment but i found it took away from the overall dynamics (not by much)as to my pet hate – the microphone is high up and not very tactile to find the selection button. More annoying is that because it is so high up, it constantly catches on open collars or jackets during normal wear. I would say that i think this is pretty basic design, and almost like someone forgot that the over the ear loop cuts 2-3′ of the position of the mic. Earbuds, the comply ones are ok a bit slow to expand. I have been using inairs for years with my klipsch iems and tried some inairs1s because of the wider post i needed also to go up from medium to large to fit. Soundwise these are better than the comply but because of the post design you will need a pair every week or two. I would probably buy the t20 instead of the t20i if i need another set.

  • Very good purchase
  • Expensive – but as the cosmetic ads would say, you’re worth it!
  • Outstanding sound and build quality – highly recommended

Bought these to see if over the over-ear design suits me before investing in expensive custom in-ears (noble), and like them so much that i’m not even interested in the noble any longer. Excellent sub base, clarity & wide soundstage. With the comply’s they are very secure and comfortable, i sometimes forget i have them in my ears.

I’m a long-time user of rha products and decided to splurge on these after my long-owned and much-cherished ma750 earphones were beginning to suffer from wear and tear. Listening to them for the first time after years of using the cheaper (but still very good) ma750 model was an absolute aural shock to the system. The sound stage is dramatically wider, with instruments and vocals picked out with much greater precision. Drums sound different: cymbal crashes are less harsh and more refined, kicks of the bass drum have real oomph. In fact, it’s in the lower frequencies where these earphones are a revelation, delivering more power and revolving more detail than the ma750s could ever manage. By contrast, the midrange sounds flat and a little harsh – to start with, at least. But it acquires a bit more depth and refinement after some hours of running the ‘phones in. The key advice for optimum sound quality, as others have noted, is to achieve a tight fit in the ear. Experiment with the wide variety of tips provided until you find something that works for you.

The sound is amazing, having the filters means you can customize your soundi use an eq on my phone to make the sound quality even betterthey are made of stainless steel so they will not break anytime soonthe noise cancelling is ok, i use foam tips to maximize the noise cancelling.

Took a few moments to select the right ear bud. But once done the sound is fantastic.

I really really wanted to like these headphones. My previous pair was the fender cxa1 and they were absolutely great – might have scored lower than other earphones but the comfort and quality for the price was a great bargain. After extensive research, i decided to go with the t20i. Pros- builtthe metallic finish and the connection jacks are simply fantastic. Very sturdy and if looked after they will last for a long time. Some people mentioned that the earhooks break down eventually but for the moment i do not see any signs of that yet (bought a few days ago). -soundthe sound is very clear, so if you like it flat then you will love these. Conns- comfortthe earphones do not sit inside my ear canal and they kept popping out of my ears. I had to change multiple tips in order to find something that kinda fit. Other brands are a lot more comfortable on that front (my previous fenders for example) and they are able to cover the whole ear canal very easily which leads to an immersive experience.

Hi,so first up, i think these earphones are incredible sound quality-wise. However, i was on the underground just now and someone bumped into me whilst i was wearing these. My right earphone popped out and when i went to put it back in, the earbud and filter had fallen out. I spent a lot of money on these earphones, and a major selling point was the build quality so i’m a little disappointed to have lost the filter and earbud that suited me.

Impressive sound, great quality and easy to hold on the ear. I have bought a few earbuds before this including the rha t10i and i returned them all, i will keep this one after i tried all the others. It is worth every penny and it is durable too. The sound is revolutionary and much much better than the previous version t10i, and it is easier to hold on the ear and lighter for they replaced the metal cable with a light rubber cable.

Superb sound quality, excellent bass, puts beats headphones to shame.

Great earphones crystal clear sound and they don’t fall out of my ears.

The sound signature is ok, with very flat soundstage – i would say 2 dimensional. Ok resolution, rubber cables. Horrible cheap case with zipper that disintegrated on the first use. The build quality of the earplugs seems robust. Nothing to make me fall in love. Compared to these, even flat, low cost studio headphones like the seinheiser hd380 sound outstanding.

Take some getting used to the fit, but these in-ears sound brilliant. I do find the in-line control a little awkward to use.

First amazon review here, so obligatory life story thrown into the mix. I listen to music between 5-10 hours a day and was looking for superb sound quality for the office (spotify on pc) and commute (spotify on s9+) after destroying my samsung ig955 akgs which i always thought were pretty good. My brother is a classical music analyst and said ‘no question, get the rha t20s’. Of course i didn’t listen thinking that, as the older brother, i could do better. I was concerned about the durabliity of rha cables which get a very bad rep and brother had destroyed his twice in 3 years. Although rha’s 3 year warranty replaced his, this was a concern for me. So i ordered a pair of bose qc35 ii, which i’d kinda always wanted. Burn in debates aside, i was impressed by the noise cancelling but shocked by the lack of depth, instrument separation and clarity which i expected to be significantly better than my akgs. Really disappointing at £250.

Upgraded from an older pair that i broke, was a bit sceptical about spending so much, but they are worth it. I’ve only played a few songs so far and if other reviews are anything to go by then they should only get better. The only downside is the case, it’s a bit naff but then i brought headphones for what they sounded like not the case. I’ll use the case from my older pair which is a much better design. The memory foam buds cut out a good amount of noise, i couldn’t hear my son shouting for help on the xbox so job done.

Very good sound , but noise isolation could be better. I’ve tried all the different earpieces supplied, none works as well as the best of my other headphones.

If you want a comfortable in-ear set of earphones which are beautifully made and sound fantastic, then look no further. Out of the box with the standard earpieces and the reference filter in place, they sounded great and fitted my ears beautifully. They are a good noise isolating design. The over the ear mouldable wires remove the weight of the earpiece and they are comfortable to wear for very long periods of time. The soundstage is wide and the stereo image is outstanding. With a three year warranty and tank-like construction, it is unlikely that you will ever need a warranty replacement. The accessories which are included include a clothes clip, 2 x foam ear pieces, 2 x double flanged silicon ear pieces in two sizes and 6 x single silicon ear pieces in s, m and l sizes so it should be possible to find a comfortable fitting option for almost any pair of ears. There are also 3 sets of screw-on earpiece filters to enhance the bass or the treble and the out of the box reference filter is already installed onto the earphones. The earpieces and filters are attached to stainless steel credit sized card for the earpieces and a small metal slab where the spare screw-on filters are attached. All of these items can be packed into the supplied zippered case.

The t20’s, in my opinion, sound better than my sure se425’s. Even straight out of the box, compared to my run in sure’s. I chose these because of the reported abundance of bass and i am not disappointed. I usually run my headphones through an fiio e12a amp but even plugging straight in to my phone they sound greatbeautifully well constructed, you can literally feel the quality.

Perfect for me – so glad rha fixed the way that they fit around the ears. Sound quality excellent for my classical and jazz – in fact all styles. For the money these are very good indeed and i have tried many high reputation brands in the past.

The rha t20s are stunning soundings earbuds, highs are handled with crisp detail without ever sounding overly bright, mids are subtle and we’ll handled, and the bass is deep while keeping a lovely warm clarity. The construction of the buds themselves are made from finely machined alloy, with three sets of screw in filters to suit your sound style whether it be high, bass boost, or reference. The only major gripe is the flex cables that curve around the back of the ear. These are constructed of a flex coil metal covered in a heat shrink type sleeve, and this sleeve has a tendency to become saggy and uncomfortable to use, and in the year and a half i’ve had my t20s, i’ve had them replaced under rhas excellent 3 year warranty. All in all though, these are an amazing entry for the young scottish sound company, and if this is a sign of things to come, i’m eager to see what they will release next at this price point.

Very well made earphone, the design is very nice, modern and stylish. However, be cautious if you have very small ear holes like me. None of the ear pad would fit thus no comfort. I had to sadly return it because of it.

I bought on the basis of press reviews and the specifications on the website. This is a very impressive product which easily lives up to the statements made in the reviews. Excellent sound and definition with superb build quality. Well designed and has also covered the main weakness of over ear headphones being the cable and connectors which are prone to break or crack.

But only after i bought a decent mp3 player. In this case an itouch (after lots of research). My sony mp3 pplayer didn’t have the guts to run the phones properly. So, don’t buy unless you have a cowon or astell & kern or itouch 128gb or are prepared to by something similar on top of these phones.
