RHA T20 Earphones Review

I’m becoming a fan of RHA. They’re just damn fun to listen to. And the ones I’ve tested so far seem like great value for money. High quality build and no nonsense sound. So, I’m excited to try out their top-of-the-line model to see just how good it can get. Let’s find out in this RHA T20 Earphones Review.

RHA T20 Earphones Review


These buds feel great. Designed with sturdy, yet very malleable memory wires, the T20 is intended to fit around the ear. The housing is made from stainless steel, and their smooth, ergonomic shape fit nicely to the contours of my ears. The end result is a secure seal and decent sound isolation. While T20 are relatively small, they have a satisfying weight to them. The cable is also thick with a stainless steel connector. Make no mistake, these earphones are solid. In fact, my favorite thing about RHA is their 3 year warranty. That’s longer than most marriages. This model has no remote, but for an extra 10 bucks you can get the T20i, which has an iPhone compatible mic/remote.

I had to play around with the 3 different filters. The headphones came out of the box with the reference filters, and they sounded harsh in the mids and too bright in the highs. So, I put on the bass filters, and it became a much better experience. Here’s the rundown…


The bass is one of the best things about these headphones. Slip on those bass filters and you’re swimming is warm, lush, low frequency goodness. I’m not a bass-head, but it’s hard not to appreciate these lows. The bass has a great balance between depth, resonance and grip. Not too subby either. Certainly, these buds are ideal for pop, hip-hop and EDM.


Going with the reference filters that came out of the box, the upper mids are on the harsh side, and vocals have a tinny feel. The clarity is good, but the mids are missing that warm fullness that I loved so much in the MA750. Once I put on the bass filters, it became a slightly different story. But still, on certain songs with strong male vocals, my ears said no.


With the bass filters in, I experienced minimal piercing. In fact, putting these buds through the Miles Davis test, the brass had a generally smooth quality. Not an extremely transparent sound for a headphone in this price range, but decent.


Besides the bass, the soundstage is the most impressive aspect of the T20. And this is true for RHA headphones in general. With a ton of width, height and depth, the multidimensional feel of the T20 is cream of the crop in this price range.


If you mainly listen to pop, hip-hop or EDM, these headphones will do more than justice to those genres. However, you’re more into rock or pop-rock, it will be hard to overcome the harshness of those upper mids. For you rockers out there, I still don’t think you can beat RHA’s cheaper model, the MA750, in terms of quality for the price.
