What we think in the Inner Sanctum:
The very first over-ear headphone from RBH Sound, the HP-2, is a full-on technicolor knock-out. With warm, rich bass that does not interfere with the clear midrange and sparkling treble, the HP-2 does what so many other brands attempt to do, but fail. These babies bring your music to life and envelope you in a full spectrum experience.
Lightweight and super-comfortable, the HP-2 also provide very good isolation. The headband and earpad design offer a terrific fit and seal, while the clamping force is just right.
The introductory price of $199 will probably not last long, so we advise jumping on a pair of these while they still one of the best bargains in all of audio-land.
From the manufacturer:
We take pride in the high performance award-winning sound that is RBH Sound. We feel everyone ought to be able to experience this spectacular sound, no matter if you are at home or on the go. While we are well known for the amazing loudspeaker systems we have been producing for almost 40 years, our headphones and earphones give you the opportunity to have this exceptional sound on-the-go.
With the ultra-light HP-2 headphones, you will be able to experience the same level of sonic fidelity as our reference speaker systems at just a fraction of the size, cost and weight. The HP-2 utilizes our 45mm diameter driver diaphragm that incorporates a beryllium surface that has been applied using a technique called, “thermal physical vapor deposition.” This micro-thin layer of beryllium provides an extended frequency response (10Hz to 40,000 Hz) that is much more linear than conventional driver diaphragm materials. These high-performance beryllium drivers, exclusive to RBH Sound, enable you to experience all the detail of your favorite recordings with true to life soundstage, ambience and fidelity.
With the HP-2 weighing in at only 8.82 ounces (250 grams), we have gone to great lengths to make sure the HP-2 headphone is ultra-light for its size, so the listening experience can last for hours without the discomfort and fatigue you would normally experience from a heavier headphone. The pillow soft ear cushions are made with low-mass visco-elastic memory foam for exceptional comfort. We guarantee the HP-2, with a fit that is both ergonomic and natural, will be the most comfortable headphone you have ever used.
The HP-2 ships with a lightweight, protective travel case and two audiophile quality cables. One cable is a straight-through, 1.2m RBH Sound Diamond cable for a premium listening experience; the other high fidelity cable features a smartphone controller with a built-in microphone that allows you to control most smartphone music functions and answer phone calls while listening.
