Summary: I've owned probably 20 plus different brands and types of headphones from my first Ipod to my current Iphone. These are without a doubt superior in sound and construction to even my $300 Shure's. Also one of the few brands where the remote has continued to work after a lot of use.
Summary: These are the best earbuds I have ever purchased. The sound is really good, the buttons on the mic are sufficiently differentiated (I hate to try to push "play" and hit "volume" because all the buttons feel totally the same) and best of all, they are actually comfortable!!! I have very small ear canals and the headphones come with numerous silicone buds that make these a great fit for most any size.
Summary: I've bought many really expensive in-ear headphones, including Bowers & Wilkins. I was always disappointed in the sound quality based on the broad range of music I listen to. I bought these for $50 and was blown away. Handles bass very well and sounds great with acoustic tunes. Don't hesitate to buy these. I'm glad I did!
Summary: Picked it up in Barcelona last summer to replace other noise-isolating earphones, whose plastic cable tore off after about a year of fairly careful use. An Apple store employee recommended these (MA450) because the cable is fabric woven. The quality of sound is quite impressive, comes with a variety of ear tips to ensure good fit, the mic and controls work fine.
Summary: Earbuds hang in your ears and let you stay connected to the outside world. These in-ear headphones shut you right out. Which can be a good thing. The headphones come with extra rubber covers, and the size makes all the difference. Too small and the earphones were really uncomfortable -- like someone was stabbing my eardrum. Too big and they wouldn't sit right and sounded weird. I liked the middle ones.
Summary: I bought these headphones for a month now and have not had any issues with them yet. The sound is very clean. Some headphones sound muffled or too bassy or too something, but in my opinion, i think these sound balanced. The bass isn't overly powerful, the mid and tweets i think are pretty clear. Like some other reviews have said, the tweets/highs are more distinct. I think thats great because some headphones lack tweets but give too much mid or bass.
Summary: They are as good as advertised. Actually better. I now have no problems as I did with Apple's earphones of them falling out every other second. They are definitely noise canceling which is nice when little children are in the area.
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 MA450i. If you like the video, check out my channel for more reviews :)
The MA450i 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, good included accessories
Cons: Tangly cables, lacks a little clarity, driver flex
Summary: Surprisingly good sound for a lower priced in-ear set. After breaking it in for about 2-3 days the bass is nice and pretty strong, clear and doesn't muddy up the rest of the spectrum. The trebles take some time to settle down but can still be a bit harsh at times but I've found out that the Comply Foam take care of this for the most part. The build quality of the housing, mic and cable are very good and have a premium feel to them.
