It is fair to say that a certain level of quality is expected from a product that costs more and compromise is expected from a product that costs significantly less than its peers. The tricky part is finding the one that offers a good balance and value for the price and offers a specific set of features that fits your need; hoping that the manufacturer’s compromise did not translate into omitting or degrading the function you are searching for. This is referred to as a “bang-for-the-buck” item that many budget-conscious buyers are looking for.
While it is rare, and sometimes difficult, to find “bang-for-the-buck” items in the sea of products out there, the ones that do rise to the top are difficult to ignore. Among headphones, RHA’s MA-350 and SA-950i have been recognized by plenty of audio enthusiasts as exceptional, high-grade audio products that offer significant value. RHA seeks to continue this tradition with their CA-200 over-the-ear headphone.
The RHA CA200 is a lightweight, circum-aural headphone that is perfect for audio enjoyment while on the move or at home. The RHA CA-200 is available in high-gloss black or white finishes and carries an MSRP of $30 USD. For a comfortable fit, RHA has designed the CA-200 to utilize a ball and socket mechanism paired with noise isolating, soft ear pads to accommodate heads of various shapes and sizes. To reproduce high quality audio, the CA200 headphone uses 40mm mylar drivers, neodymium magnets as well as copper-clad aluminum wire voice coils, exposing the listener to a frequency range of 20-20,000Hz and a sensitivity of 113dB. To add to the portable convenience, the CA200 comes with a 1.2m detachable braided Y-cable designed with anti-fraying protection to prevent any damage from unnecessary tugs and pulls, ultimately prolonging the lifespan of the CA200 on top of the 3-year warranty.
