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: With a fabric-coated cable and a lovely, ergonomic remote control unit, these RHA MA450i in-ear headphones feel like a premium product. That impression is only reinforced by the strong build and comfortable fit.
Pros: Good insight, satisfying dynamics and rhythm
Conclusion: Véritable réussite sur la forme, que ce soit dans le confort, l’isolation ou la construction exceptionnelle, le modèle possède une signature classique et relativement bien agencée. Une bonne affaire mais pas encore un tueur.
