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: 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
For the money, these are simply outstanding. Especially with their warranty.

Summary: I'll keep it short as plenty of reviewers have said what I want to say: -They sound good, very good for the price. Nice clarity and plenty of bass to make your music sound lively. They're not audiophile-grade but definitely above most other pairs at this price range. -Solidly built, comfortable with nice tips. The real reason for the 5 stars though is that RHA customer service is exceptional.
Summary: I would buy these earphones time and time again. They are great build quality and feel like a great product as soon as you unpack them. They are british made and the customer service from Reed Heath is excellent - I contacted them asking to buy some replacement rubber buds as I lost some and they sent me a couple of sets out for free! Most importantly though the sound quality for the price of these earphones is amazing.
Summary: As most purchasers of mid-range earbuds will know, you tend to get what you pay for - variable quality and a short life span. Over the years I have been though half a dozen Sennheiser cx300s, a couple of cx500s, all sorts of Sony, Panasonic et al. None of them last more that 6 months. Then one Christmas my generous brother gifted me my prized Denon C551s - great sound and lasted a full 2 years before their inevitable demise.
Very good sound, comfortable, good value. Sound equal to much more expensive Beyerdynamic DTX100 that broke.

Summary: Having not heard of RHA before I bought these on the strength of the reviews here and on What Hi-Fi and I have not been disappointed. They were bought to replace a pair of Beyerdynamic DTX100 earphones which, although also excellent for sound quality, were a let-down on build as the case of one of the ear pieces split along the line where they were glued after 15 months of very careful and minimal use. They were also more than 3 times the price of the RHA- MA -350's.
Summary: These earphones are priced at a point where they you're starting to move away from budget earphones, but they are definitely worth the few extra pounds. These have a sound quality which are way above that of similarly priced earphones, fantastic bass sound and a lovely aesthetic look. They also have a certain 'weightiness' to them which simply suggest quality and that they are well put together, and aren't tiring to wear.
Summary: I've been using these earphones for around 18 months now. I have tried several other makes over the years, but in my opinion these are the best. Great build quality and fantastic sound. The cables are braided and the ear pieces are aluminium.The service you get from the company can't be bettered. And last but not least, they're British !!!
Summary: I always worry about buying a product on line without testing it first. The same was true with these earphones. I do not like to spend a lot of money but I do like comfort and the best possible sound quality. I took a chance after reading reviews of these earphones, and I am so glad I did. The quality of materials is second to none and I agree they look much more expensive than they actually cost.
Summary: I've had these for almost a year and I love them. No problems whatsoever, no crackling, hissing etc. I have no issues with the cord rubbing on my clothes or anything like that. I'm not an audiophile, just an ordinary bloke who likes to listen to music on the go sometimes. I wouldn't/couldn't spend silly money on audio devices, but I understand those who do. I love the look of these, the metal solid-feeling outer ear part looks great.
