Next-Level Dual Hybrid Noise Cancelling

High-Performance Dual Hybrid Noise Cancellation combines two cutting edge technologies to deliver a Zen like experience. Two microphones in each earbud pickup unwanted ambient sound to provide Active Feedforward and Feedback cancelling.

The digital and analogue processing of the captured noise leaves you with a rich, distraction free rendition of your favourite tracks, just as the artist intended. Perfect for commuting, local and overseas flights, and tuning out the background noise in the office.

Additionally, Noise Cancelling can be fine-tuned to 50 different levels, empowering you to customise the precise amount of outside noise you want to hear.

Rock-Solid, Interruption Free Bluetooth Connectivity

Say goodbye to dropouts on your music and calls. Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity delivers an uninterrupted listening experience, even in busy, high traffic areas to ensure your important phone calls and favourite songs never miss a beat.
Rock-Solid, Interruption Free Bluetooth Connectivity

Left-Right Independent Signalling System

Most earphones use a relay system where only one earpiece receives the signal and transmits it to the other. This can cause connectivity issues and result in an unbalanced sound.
The S500 uses an Independent Left-Right Signalling system that sends the signal to both earpieces simultaneously to negate connectivity problems. Additionally, this system supports using only 1 earpiece for a more casual listening experience.
Left-Right Independent Signalling System

Impossibly Compact Design, Without Compromise

A breakthrough in technology allowed us to integrate the Bluetooth antenna and touch sensor while improving connection stability. The uncompromising approach to reducing the overall size and weight of the earphone ensures maximum comfort and convenience.
Impossibly Compact Design, Without Compromise

Excellent Quality Hands-Free Calls

Perfect for work or play, the RZ-S500 features three high-performance MEMS microphones in each earpiece that are integrated into a unique labyrinth structure to minimise wind noise and deliver clear, natural, hands-free calls.

Beamforming technology is utilised to effectively isolate your voice while suppressing ambient noise for optimum intelligibility.
Excellent Quality Hands-Free Calls
