Summary: For the price and when these headphones work they are great. But there is a design fault somewhere as the two pairs I have had failed after five months and then two. No sound in one bud both times. Will give two Stars as they have at least offered me a new pair in replacement so I'll give the new set four months before they fail. I want to support a UK business that creates quality goods which are not style over substance but this kit is a let down.
Summary: Awful. I had them in for less than an hour before packaging them up for returning. Yes they exclude external noise, so they do as they say. But the noise from the cable is ridiculous and off putting. Unless you have the volume up so high it's dangerous. Avoid at alll costs. They're terrible. Hooking up over your ear doesn't work either - it compromises the positioning of the buds in your ear and doesn't make them 'sound excluding'.
Summary: I bought these based on the What HiFi review and others from around the net but find myself disagreeing with most of the plus points made by others and have returned them for a refund. Yes the build quality of the ear bud is excellent, quality materials which are well machined but sound produced by the cord and fed to the ear is a real distraction. When it comes to actual sound.
Summary: I know it was not a lot of money to pay but I was not happy because of the way the sound was spoiled when the wires to the phones came into contact with each other. A unacceptable level of noise was generated any time I moved my head and consequently the wires came into contact with each other or my clothing. I would not recommend this item to anyone .
Disappointing durability but excellent customer service.

Summary: These earphones give an excellent first impression. They look well built, with the aluminium on the earbud, and the cloth wrapped wires - but are surprisingly light. They are very comfortable and sit well in the ear - an area I often find disappointing in earphones. The sound, for the price is outstanding.
Summary: I ordered my first pair of MA-350's last November to replace the Klipsch/Sennheiser sets that kept breaking. Was hoping these would last longer than 4 months. The Achilles heel I've found is the cable-to-jack connection. The plastic tip of the jack split off and began sliding up and down the fabric cable freely leaving the wiring vulnerable to use and sure enough this week the sound is lost if I move even a little.
Summary: These earphones deliver excellent and balanced sound quality. Very little distortion at high volume. However, sadly they broke after 4 months: First the aluminum cover on one earphone broke off, then the cloth braiding around the wire started fraying and peeling off, then the other earphone stopped working. I was shocked that such well-reviewed earphones could not last more than 4 months. Very disappointed.
Summary: I have reviewed these very positively before, however since then I had a few problems with the funnel of the earpiece separating from the back plate. Apparently, this was a production issue with early versions. RHA were very good about replacing the headset every time, however after I think the 3rd set (I forget exactly how many I had), I gave up and went back to a cheap and cheerful set of headphones.
Summary: Entspanntes hören war nicht möglich.Die höhen waren viel zu aggressiv und die mitten gingen unter.Einzig die schönen knackigen Bässe waren angenehm.Dazu noch die extremen "Kabelgeräusche",unmöglich.Reine Effektkopfhörer!Habe dann die sennheiser cx400 genommen,diese waren wesentlich neutraler,ehrlicher.
Eigentlich guter klang aber erhebliche mechanische Probleme

Summary: Wie von anderen hier schon beschrieben ist der Klang wirklich exzellent, besonders für den Preis. In dieser Hinsicht finden sich inzwischen allerdings reichlich Rezensionen um dies nachzulesen. Leider nur am Rande erwähnt findet man die Eigenschaft des Kopfhörers, bei jeder noch so kleinen Bewegung mit dem Kabel Geräusche zu erzeugen.
