Conclusion: Overall, these are my new favorite in-ears, and I plan to use a pair to retire my S3's. They're well made, sound fantastic, and even look sleek and stylish without being garish. It would be hard for most to find a better set of all-purpose in-ears for the price.
Reid Heath Audio is somewhat of a new comer to the world of audio. Their main branch, Reid Heath Ltd. is still not very big. However, their company represenatives were homley and their web page yells humble. They are ambitious in getting the word out about their company from the looks of it. I recently spotted their company at an Apple store. Amazing isn’t it, what people with a dream can achieve.
Pros: Clean sound, highs and mids well responding with a good bass
Cons: Harsh upper mids, and extremely poor build durability
Summary: First off, I would like to thank RHA for sending me the MA350's for a review!
I am going to get right into the review now.
Driver size: 10mm Mylar
Frequency range: 16-22,000Hz
Rated/max power: 3/10mW
When I first received the MA350's and opened them, the packaging was good. A rectangle cardboard box with a plastic...
Summary: Full review here:
First of all, I must note that the version I got seems to be a newer one as it differs from the ones I've seen online. The box is different, the plug is angled and not straight, the nozzle filter is black and the included eartips are "hybrid-style" ones. So please take this into consideration as my impressions might be quite different, and so it seems, from previous MA350's reviews.
Pros: Build Quality, Comfort, Isolation and Fun Sound - 3 year warranty!!!
Cons: Microphonic fabric cable - can be fixed with the shirt clip
Summary: First, I’d like to thank the folks at RHA for sending me a pair of the MA-350 to review.
RHA is a name I’ll admit I’m not immediately familiar with, so when an email fell into my inbox, offering me a chance to review their MA-350 model IEM, I admit I was a bit skeptical. But nonetheless, I accepted the offer and a couple days later the package arrived in my mailbox. So, does this upstart have what it takes to box with the best in the budget class? Read on to find out.
Summary: Thanks to RHA for sending me a pair of these to review!
What we have here is a headphone that I can only describe as incredible. Very impressive
Accessories - 3 sizes of round silicone tips and soft carrying pouch.
Build and Design- The MA-350 has a very nice aluminum housing that holds the driver. Simple, yet shows some elegance. Long strain reliefs show increased durability. Cloth-sheathed cord appears very durable. Doesn't appear to be prone to memory effects.
Pros: Detailed, incredible subbass performance, great build
Cons: Stock tips lose seal easily with my ears, microphonic cable unless worn over-ear.
Summary: This isn't really a straight copy from my blog post here, but it still is a copy. More pictures and more in-depth look is in this 5-part review-journal.
==][==Classy Commuter: Final impressions of the RHA MA350==][==
A huge thank you to Reid Heath Audio and warrenpchi for making this review possible, and moreso the person in charge of contacting me.
Pros: Good quality bass (esp. the subbass); small, funnel shape ensures comfort for longer commutes; midrange and treble are still high quality
Cons: Cable can get tangle if not stored in the cloth pouch; tips could be a bit stiff and tight the first time around; forward bass might not be for some
Summary: I'd like to think RHA for sending me these earphones for review.
Along with the summary below, I have posted a Youtube video review of the MA350. If you like the video, check out my channel for more reviews :)
The MA350 has an interesting build, with a reverse horn / funnel shape. This is actually the opposite of a horn speaker design in principle, and means that the MA350 fits very comfortably in the ear.
Pros: Durable metal earpieces, comfortable fit, deep bass
Cons: Tangly cables, lacks a little clarity, driver flex
Summary: These are pretty standard earbuds. They look good and they're quite comfortable. The L/R to indicate which ear is which is quite difficult to see - I had to have it pointed out to me. The bass is strong and deep, for something in this price range. The mids are slightly veiled, though not too bad. The highs are only ok, detail in the highs is lacking, it's missing the high frequencies.
