A Great Pair of IEM's that Should Outlast You

Posted

Pros: Soundstage, detailing, clean bass, separation, comfort once you get used to it, accessories, build quality, customer support.

Cons: Bad recordings don't sound great, comfort in the beginning, some QC in regards to package cleanliness.

This is my first review on Head-Fi, so forgive me for my trip ups and lack of jargon, as I simply do not have the knowledge or experience to accurately describe everything I hear and feel. That being said, I deliberated over my purchase of these IEM's for quite a while. For a few months, I had a toss-up between the GR07 BE, Sennheiser CX985, Rock-It R50 and RHA MA-750i. Any one of these purchases would be my 'step' into new territory: triple-digits audio gear. Before I go any further, I'll describe my previous collection, to provide a little context to the rest of the review. Almost 2 years ago, I was running a pair of MH1's, which I bought when my original Sony Ericsson IEM's were...

Forget the SE215 , The MA750i overthrows it .

Posted

Pros: Built Quality , Audio Quality , Bang For Buck , Extra Eartips , Stainless Steel , 3 year warranty .

Cons: mandatory burn in required

My last review was the IE800 + iFi iDSD Micro , which i really thought i wouldn't be writing another review of audio products as i sold both of them away due to my enlistment into the Singapore National Service in the Singapore Armed Forces , "Army" as some would call it .  Well , here i am again as i am allowed to bring these into camp !  Alright , after selling the insanely top notch bundle , i decided to settle for something a little affordable which covers my 2 years in this journey here , where i require them to be durable too . Then i stumble upon them , the MA750i , which meets most of my needs , High quality built , excellent audio quality for the price , 2 sets of...

RHA MA750

Posted

Pros: Solid Build Quality. amazing choice of tips. long cable.

Cons: sound on iphone is terrible.

I bought these on the recommendation of the many reviews on this site and amazon. I purchased it in the apple store and have owned them now for almost 2 years.And frankly am disappointed. Myhouse growing up was an audiophile's dream. MAny rooms with very high end systems. My Folks are audiophiles, I appreciate good sound but live in an old appartment and can't enjoy.  Davis and BW speakers are my favourite. I like sound that is rich. And these headphones sound awful on the iphone. They do sound a little better on my microsoft surface which is of a higher resistance and power.  This is going to shock a few headfiers, but honestly the $35 apple earpod's sound KILL these. Like...

Exceptional IEM with bad low highs

Posted

Pros: Build quality, comfort with sony tips, bass clarity, rich sound, great soundstage

Cons: low highs are harsh - makes a lot of music unplesant

So everything with this IEM is just perfect except the low highs. For me, it is so harsh, like a very cheap IEM. I'm very sensitive about this. I listen classical, jazz, chill out, breakbeat, progressive house. It is pretty hard to find IEMs which satisfying my needs. I need exceptional bass quality, warm sound signature, great soundstage. Unfortunately this is not like this. Even the t10i has this problem with the highs, but a little better.   After few hours of listening, it became a little better, but I decided to send it back. (I also tried later in a shop with a more used one, but it is the same annoying low highs) Instead, I bought a Yamaha eph-100, which doesn't as good...

Excellent build quality, mediocre sound quality

Posted

Pros: Build quality

Cons: dark sounding, lacks detail in the midrange

Build quality is great and they're so much more comfortable than my GR07s.  I really wanted to like them, but I just couldn't get them dialed in.  Even heavily EQing the bass and treble down, the mids still sounded recessed and lacked detail.  The thumpy bass is nice, but the novelty wore off quickly.  I work in the audio industry and I understand a lot of people like a "hot" top end with a fat bottom end - if that's you, then these would be a great headphone for you.  If you're looking for flat response, with detailed mids, then I have to say give something else a try.  I think these would also benefit greatly from an amp if you're considering...

Flawless Victory!

Posted

Pros: Unbeatable Build Quality, Beautiful Design, Comfort, Isolation, Instruments, Imaging, Timbre and overall Sound Singature

Cons: Cable might not be so friendly for some

Full review here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/748220/review-rha-ma750-flawless-victory     Sound:   The overall signature is of a very, very wide U-shaped form, with equal and excellent extension on both ends. The bass is very special and takes a really different form than the MA350, RHA entry-fi previous model, and many other mid-fi earphones that the MA750 compete against. Instead of focusing on a strong and thick mid-bass centered low-end, the MA750 offer a flatter response at the mid-bass section. It's still rather strong as dynamic drivers can get, but doesn't show a certain lift or peak. On the other hand, what the MA750 really have is an impressive sub-bass...

A Classy Looking IEM With Sound to Match

Posted

Pros: Great bass, nice accessory set

Cons: Slight treble harshness with stock tips

First off, I would like to thank RHA for providing @C.C.S.. and I with review sets. I would also like to thank C.C.S. for nominating me for the review sample.   Gear used for review: PC → Project H (Custom Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC and O2 with OPA2134 opamps) iPod Classic → Silver LOD → Fiio E07k Galaxy Nexus Nexus 4   Inside the box: The box looks very nice and professional overall:         Inside the box, you get a great set of accessories. There are six sets of single flange silicone tips and three sets of bi-flange tips, all included on a nifty metal card that helps you keep track of all the tips:       There is also a...

Plain amazing

Posted

Pros: Great bass, Clarity, Present highs, 3 YEARS WARRANTY

Cons: No swappable cable, the case looks a bit cheap?

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!    I write reviews only when I'm blown away with a product and this one is one of them. I tried the higher end model, T20i and I absolutely hated it. I thought I'd never buy RHA products again but I did. The 750i pair that I have got sound simply amazing.   The sound is a signature dynamic driver sound. It's not a very bassy headphone. Even if you consider it bassy, the bass does not bleed into mid or highs so the overall sonic signature is very clear. The treble is there and is not annoying at all (like the IE800s that I had). It's sparkly, fun and gives a sense of air to the sound. They are very comfortable to use as they are over ear. I find the...

The RHA MA750i is worth the effort to get the fit right.

Posted

Pros: Build quality.Attention to detail.Aesthetics.Accessories.Sound balance.Price.

Cons: Deeper tip insertion required.Audio control buttons need to be more responsive.Case should be rigid.

I had to finally put my Shure E4Cs to rest and have been on the search for months to find a replacement.   I like sub bass and a balanced sound and value build quality. My Shures were built tough but they lacked top end and a little weak on bass. They also had no player control or mic.   I've never had to deeply insert tips with headphones due to the shape of my ear canals so when I got the MA750's I took the same approach.   I went through the range of tips 4 or 5 times trying to find a set that would work. None did - I got the typical issues caused by lack of fit.   No bass and lots of uncontrolled highs - really unpleasant.   I was ready to send them...

Awesome IEM! Best for the price IMO

Posted

Pros: Bass is just right, great clarity, comfortable fit, media buttons work well, attractive design, excellent build quality, good tip selection,

Cons: Comply foam tips not included, upper mids a bit lacking,

Recently went about trying to find myself an IEM that I liked the sound of and tested out both the Shure SE215 & sennheiser momentum in ear before getting the RHA's. IMO the momentum was too bass heavy, the shure sounded quite good but doesnt look as nice, is more difficult to put on, less comfortable, and can be more sibilant when you push it to higher volumes. The RHA's are exactly what I wanted in an IEM and sound fairly balanced with a bit of a lean towards the bassy end of the scale depending on your choice of ear tip.    The slight increase in price of these over the 215's is worth it in my eyes because of the shures downfalls I listed above. If you are looking for...

Unbeatable build, fantastic sound.

Posted

Pros: Build quality is astonishing. Tons of accessories. Great warm sound. Overall clarity. Bass Extension.

Cons: Mid-bass\low-mid detail. Cable may be cumbersome.

Gosh, I love these headphones. I bought them after my Xiaomi Piston 2.0 broke, and I have to say, these are a considerable improvement in every department. Now let's get to the review :D   Build Quality - The feeling you get when you hold these and gaze upon their majesty is something to behold. The stainless steel construction makes these super heavy. These things just look so elegant. Another review called these the Aston Martin of IEM's, and I wholeheartedly agree. From the jack all the way to the buds, all they do is scream quality. Bravo to the designers over at RHA. 5/5   Accessories - Oh boy, you get a lot of them. First up is the case. I'm not sure if it's...

A great deal

Posted

Pros: Build, package, accessories

Cons: What????

I´m not good to write something about audio stuffs and to write in english but i hope that my experience helps somebody. For health problems with my ears, i sold all my headphone stuffs. in my headphone experience history, i had some good amplifiers like Little-Dot MKVI and a unique and massive balanced beta-22. I had some headphones like Grado HP-2, Sennheiser HD-800, AKG K-1000, Beyerdynamic T1, Ultrasone Edition 10, Audeze LCD-2, Hifiman He-500 and He-6, etc. etc. etc. And i tried the famous Stax 009 Why the RHA 750i? In first place, to use when i drive with my iphone 4s. perfect for this use. and, of course, to listen music. i have in my Iphone Radio Tuna and...

That polite school kid who gets all A's, doesn't throw any surprises, and who your mom trusts you with. But sometimes, you want to let loose.

Posted

Pros: That bass (warm and round, it's a massage to my inner ear), detailed, no edges, technically fantastic, relaxing

Cons: Where have the mids/treble gone? No edges, polite, not exciting

Contrary to my intentions of reviewing these when I first got them (similar to my other reviews), I was forced to wait 2 months from their date of arrival. I've found this to be ideal, as it kept me from writing before getting to know the headphones first, especially since I was coming from a longtime close friendship with the RE0s. Here goes...   Context 2013-10-23 – Initial unboxing and first listen For the next week, casual listening, walking through city streets, metro, bus lines, in home. No music for 1.5 months (bricked source) One week ago, started listening to these headphones and then brought the RE0s back out.   Equipment Apple iPod Touch 3rd Generation...

RHA MA750 Review

Posted

Pros: Well-balanced Sound, Detailed, Extended Treble Response

Cons: Mild Sibilance, Not Neutral

Background:   About two weeks ago, I was selected to be a member of a review program that RHA was holding for their MA600 and MA750 IEMs. I had not heard any of RHA’s IEMs at that point and was only vaguely familiar with them and their growing reputation. However, I could not miss out on the potential opportunity to receive a free pair of earphones, so I nominated myself and a friend for the program. He and I both received a pair of MA750 for review. So, here’s my take on the RHA MA750.   Disclaimer: I did not pay anything for this review sample. RHA sent it to me for free. This has not affected the opinion reflected in this review.   Packaging:   The...
