    Braided cables create noise

    • Written by from Bromley

    These felt like a very good fit and sounded good, but there is a fundamental problem with all headphones that have braided cables. When the cable rubs against clothing, stubble, beard etc, it creates a noise through the headphones - like a persistent wind noise that significantly reduces the quality of sound.

    Its a shame, these would be good otherwise. I don't know why manufacturers make them with this chord when the noise is clearly;y an issue.

    Great sound, appalling build quality

    • Written by from London

    I've now had at least two (and maybe three) pairs of these headphones arrive in the post, delight me with the quality of the sound and then after a few months fail because of the connection between the plug and the jack. Having had this problem before, I decided to keep the most recent pair in the carry case all the time when not using them in an attempt to protect them. However, this has had no effect. The same problem has struck again.

    I don't want to contact Customer Support again - despite my three year warranty. I'd rather just get a new pair of different headphones and hope they last longer.

    I had high hopes for RHA - and the sound is great. The build quality lets them down drastically.

    Great sound, design and build!

    I bought these headphones from the Apple store after my previous ones failed me and am so impressed at the quality. The materials used are great and feel really durable. Sound quality is clear and crisp, can't fault it. Also a really nice touch that a selection of ear tip sizes are included with the product. Getting a good fit really seemed to make a difference to the sound. Three year warranty is great should I need to use it!
