Early last month, we took a look at the RHA T10 in-ear headphones and Kris gave them a fairly high score in the full review. It would seem he wasn’t the only one who felt they deserved some recognition as audio company RHA announced today that the RHA T10i in-ears have won the 2015 Red Dot Award for product design.
This prestigious award acknowledges the T10i’s cutting edge design as the epitome of form and function. A panel of 38 expert judges came together in Germany for days of testing and discussing nominated products in order to pick a winner. This year, after sifting through a record 4,928 submissions from companies across the globe, the RHA T10i headphones walked away with the victory.
This is the 60th anniversary of the Red Dot Awards and it is one of the most notable design competitions in the world. Not only are the aesthetics taken into consideration, but judges also look at how the product functions as well as whether or not it is innovative in its respective field. The T10i’s definitely push the boundaries of in-ears to the limit with their industrial all-metal design and the ability to swap out filters to fine tune the listening experience to your liking. Besides looking good, they also sound great and this is no doubt due to the custom filter system and handmade drivers that RHA included in these in-ears.
If you find yourself in Essen, Germany you can see them on display at the Red Dot Museum beginning on June 29th. If Germany isn’t in your immediate future you can always treat yourself to a pair and see what all the fuss is about. For only $199 the RHA T10i in-ears are now not only critically acclaimed, but award winning headphones that we doubt you’d be disappointed with. Keep in mind that the T10i has a mic and remote that is only compatible with iDevices. If you own an Android or simply want to save yourself $10, then the standard T10 in-ears are for you. They are exactly the same headphones save for the mic and remote.
Congratulations to RHA for winning this prestigious award and we can’t wait to see what lies ahead.
