The first thing that I would do before really listening to music with the MA450i is to fit them correctly in your ears with the right ear-tips. If you are not using the ear-tips that fit your ears the best your listening experience is not going to be that good.
For me I use headphones or earbuds to help me concentrate. When I put them on they drown out the noise around me and the music I listen to allows me to “get in the zone” and get work done.
Pros: Smooth and clear sound, Available in both black and white, Inline volume control and microphone, Seven included eartips, Made of quality materials
Excerpt: Our friends at RHA recently sent me a pair of MA450i noise isolating aluminum earphones. Featuring a dynamic speaker for high definition sound with full bass, a fabric braided cable for reduced tangling and prolonged cable life, and a remote and microphone that works with most modern smartphones, it’s clear that the company has put some thought into the design, with usability in mind. But first, let’s look at the specs.
Excerpt: Last time we gave you the full break-down on RHA's SA950i on-ear headphones and we were thoroughly impressed. Now we're back ears-on with RHA's MA450i in-ear headphones which we definitely have high standards for. Boasting both excellent build quality and superior sound at an affordable price, RHA is not out to drain your wallet but to satisfy the audiophile in you. Head on past the break as we put these earphones to the test and give you our full review.
Conclusion: It is possible that, with 30 more hours of break in, the MA450i might smooth out enough that they wouldn’t rub us the wrong way so much – and we’ll certainly give them that chance – but we have our doubts. Plus, we think most folks just aren’t that patient.
Pros: Excellent bass and midrange response, Wide selection of eartips, Very lightweight, Highly sensitive
Cons: Aggressive and often harsh treble response, Piercing at high volumes
Excerpt: Back in January, we took a look at RHA’s SA950i headphones and were thoroughly impressed by their design and performance. Now we are looking at RHA’s MA450i earphones to see if they can offer similar performance in a different design. While headphones are great for all-out performance, nothing can match the flexible and portable nature of earphones. RHA is aiming to deliver a high-quality audio package in a small and portable – in-ear – form factor.
Summary: I have to say I really liked these in-ear headphones, I'd definitely recommend the MA450i's for the type of people who listen to a lot acoustic and electronic and don't mind investing a little more than average to receive finer audio quality
Excerpt: This is the third in the RHA series that we here at Coolsmartphone have reviewed following on from the MA350’s and the CA-200 headphones. Both the 350’s and the CA200’s were impressive with the RHA-MA350’s being particularly good.
Excerpt: Earbuds and earphones don’t always have the best reputation. They’re often tinny or overly bassy, and almost always uncomfortable, so it’s a nice surprise when we encounter a pair of earphones that aren’t expensive and are, well, good. Really good.
Pros: Seven types of tips, including bi-flange, Very warm sound, Doesn't require you to turn up the sound from your media player, Excellent value
Cons: Cable isn't tangle-proof, Remote won't necessarily control Android devices, Bass can be a touch overpowering
