Closer Look: RHA CA-200
In this section we will take a close look at the RHA CA-200 Headphones and discuss its main design and features.
The first thing you may notice here (my favorite feature) is the lack of a cable. The CA-200's from RHA have a detachable cable and this is great for many reasons, I will list a few I can think of just off the top of my head. When you are not using them you can easily detach the cable to keep it from dangling, if the cable becomes damaged in any way you won't need to buy a new set of headphones (just replace the cable) and if you were to snag the cable on something it is less likely to become damaged (it should pull free from the cans).
The 3.5mm stereo cable splits into two mono 3.5mm jacks and connects into the bottom of the cans, the cans are labelled left and right and the cable is color coded. This also means you can wear the headphones backwards depending on which way you find more comfortable.
The CA-200's have a good 2 inches of adjustment to cater for different head sizes. I find with headphones that I tend to be on or around the smallest adjustment position, but the CA-200's small position is very small (think child size). The large adjustment position would easily cater for larger headed masculine adult. There is an nice chrome accent around the cans that give the CA-200's a stylish look.
The glossy plastic head band has a silver stripe printed along its length which is broken on each side by an RHA logo. The main body of the cans are made from this same glossy plastic, and the unit initially has a kind of cheap feel to it, but after listening to the CA-200's this is immediately forgiven. This is where RHA have made savings in production costs, but also by design they are very lightweight and comfortable.
The CA-200's have a nice thick head band that will rest comfortably near the middle of your head top. If you find it more comfortable you can flip them round and wear them backwards and then the head band would sit more towards the back of your head.
