Summary: Many thanks to RHA Audio for providing this free review sample.
The MA600 is tuned as a V shape. For those who don't know what that means, a V shaped tuning means the treble and bass have been tuned to sound more forward and aggressive then the mids. End result, the mids tend to sound more laid back in comparison to the rest of the sound signature.
Pros: Good fun sound, good build quality, well priced, nice tonality, good detailing in the mids
Cons: lack of strain relief, to much bass if you're not a bass head, bass leeches into lower mids
First of all I’d like to thank RHA for providing me with this sample unit. This is actually the first time I heard of this company and wasn’t expecting too much to be honest. But I have to admit I am quite surprised at how good this IEM sounds for its price point (around $90.00 I think?). It sounds very good for this price bracket.
Anyways, the MA600 is RHAs second flagship IEM with the MA750 being their top offering.
Pros: Rich and deep bass, spacious sound, easy on the ears, good fit, good build quality, 3 year warranty, nice packaging
Cons: There is the potential for mid-bass bleed, treble is a bit laid back and unrefined, provided tips didn't fit my ears
Summary: RHA MA-600 Review
I was given a sample of the RHA MA600 (Thank you RHA!) to review. They arrived on Monday of Thanksgiving week with the request that I get some impressions up by Thanksgiving…so here are my initial impressions.
I received the MA600…not the iPhone version, but the standard version without iPhone controls. Price from various online retailers is $79 ($89 for the iPhone control version)
They arrived well packaged and undamaged.
Pros: Build quality, aesthetics, sound quality when EQ'd

Pros: BASS!!!! TREBLE!!! Build and warranty
Cons: Subtle acoustically like a brick to the face then punch in the guts.
Summary: I wanted great sound, sturdy design and reliability. I've had them about 4 months now and i'm really pleased. Sound: Great quality, a good balance of base and treble although I do find that if the volume is too low then some of the sound depth is lacking - understandable I guess. There is very little interference through the cable, which I have found an issue with other earphones. Comfort: I tried a few of the ear buds and have found a good fit.
Summary: Firstly I just want to say how fantastic these earphones are! I was stood in my local Apple store trying to choose between the MA450i and these, in the end I decided to spend the extra twenty quid and get these. Having read some reviews about the 450i and problems with the woven chord, I am pleased I went for these as the extra layer of insulation on these eliminates any noise from the cable. The sound quality is fantastic right across the range.
Summary: The Good: built to last - 3 years warranty. The Bad: so called V-shaped sound:emphasis on bass and highs which can be harsh. Bass - of a higher frequency range means it is shallow most of the time - no real authority, depth-bass lacks soft end and speed. Harsh highs can make some tracks sound metallic. These earbuds one of those that if not fit perfectly, it will loose 70% of bass. Too truthful.
Summary: These are the best earphones i have ever used. The sound quality is superb as well as being really comfortable. It comes with eight earbuds which is really useful and the carry case is really strong just a little bit too small for my liking. The noise cancellation is superb despite it being passive. But all in all i give these a 10/10 for everything.
Summary: I used to own a couple of 450is which were really good - until I lost them. Decided to try their slightly bigger "brother" and haven't regretted a thing. I think they sound great, the buttons are easy to use and very clicky (that's a good thing), and the L-shaped jack is sturdy. I like the fact that the 600i comes with a boatload of earplugs, but actually, the ones that were mounted on the phones when they arrived fit perfectly.
