RHA is among fairly couple of earphone makers that caters as much to traditional audiences regarding hardcore audiophiles. You might see that duality in action the previous month. Simply a couple of weeks after launching the its flagship $899 earbuds focused on the lover neighborhood, the business is today revealing its very first set of ‘real wireless’ earbuds.

Called the RHA TrueConnect, the earphones appear like a mashup of conventional earbuds and Apple’s AirPods.

Here are the pertinent specifications:

  • 6mm vibrant chauffeur
  • 20-20,000 Hz frequency reaction
  • Bluetooth 5.0
  • USB-C charging case with quick charging
  • 5 hours battery life + 20 hours in the event
  • IPX5 weather condition resistant
  • Siri and Google Assistant assistance
  • 3-year guarantee
  • $170

The stem style assists enhance call quality, and most likely assists these attain among the very best battery life declares we have actually seen on real cordless buds. Aside from the 5 hours of constant playback, you have 4 complete charges readily available in the bring case. I likewise value the addition of USB-C and quick charging here; RHA states the earbuds can reach 50 percent with simply 15 minutes in their case.

While I have actually had favorable experience with the different RHA items I have actually attempted up until now, I’m a little worried there’s no reference of AptX or AAC codecs for high quality Bluetooth transmission. While the basic SBC codec can in theory sound excellent if effectively carried out, I have actually yet to hear an earphone that does SBC well.

The evidence remains in the pudding. We’ll be investing a long time with the earphones quickly, so remain tuned for our evaluation. If you’re currently connected though, you can pre-order the TrueConnect for $170 from RHA’s site now. The earbuds will deliver October 18.
