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: I like these. I did have a problem with the phono plug after approx a year, but the guarantee sorted that out without fuss. It's possible that the lead into the phono plug is susceptible to getting bent/broken because it comes straight out where as right angle connectors are likely to get less squished and probably would be longer lasting. More ear buds than you can shake a stick at though so a good fit is a high probability.
I've been looking for good lightweight headphones for a while
18 August 2014
Summary: I've been looking for good lightweight headphones for a while. Since the in-ear phones took over the market I have found it really difficult to find suitable phones that 1) didn't hurt, 2) fit my ears without falling out, and 3) sounded great. These phones fit the bill. The packaging and design looks very thought out and detailed. The variety of earbuds/tips you get helps find the best fit and for me the choices were better than at least two major brands I've tried.
Summary: I've had these for just under one year. There are a couple of plus points to these earphones for the price you pay: - The sound is very good and very isolating. I listen to a lot of rock and roll and soul music and have enjoyed these down the gym so that all I hear is the music! I've had £100+ earphones (Shure) and the difference in sound in my opinion is minimal - The length of the chord itself is very long compared to most so never gets in the way whatever you are...
Summary: Good quality, does the noise insulating job very well. Fits in very good in ear. The sound quality is really good. Sometimes when you move you head, the cord scrape against the fabric of my clothes and that makes a disturbing noise. It does not bother me too much though. All and all, a really good and priceworthy pair of headphones.
Summary: I bought these, partly due to the existing reviews and partly as I researched the company who makes them. Can't say that I am disappointed. My only gripe is they are a little heavy and keep slipping out of my ears even though I have tried numerous variances of the accompanying buds.
Summary: I originally bought these mainly because of the warranty, plain and simply put, I have gone through many an earphone only to have them break, (most often the wires at connection points), after only a few months, even after looking after them. I gave 4 stars only because you can't use the volume buttons on Android, however I was aware of this at time of purchase, I specifically still chose these because of their price to quality ratio.
Summary: Well i bought these in May; i found they tangled at the drop of a hat and the noise of the cable against your clothing when walking was awful. To resolve these issues i always wrapped the cable carefully around my MP3 and used a small hair clip to attach the lose cable to my clothing - not idea at this price - solving both issues.
Summary: I bought the earphones back in February 2013 and I was really happy with the sound and the quality. Unfortunately the right earphone stopped working a few weeks ago so I contacted RHA as the purchase includes a 3 year warranty. The customer support team was absolutely brilliant! I had a reply within a day and a new pair of earphones within 3 days! Thanks RHA!
