I went straight for the RHA's and just threw in the EM5813's.  I find the depth of sound incredible.  Forward mids.  Bass is loose right now so I'll go through its paces.  I think I'll like them…LOTS!

Thanks sf. It should be interesting but the bass is quite obvious from the get go.

i havent ever connected them to my X3a which I'm still burning in with my burning in Onkyo hf300s...why

didnt i think of that combo?  thanks for reminding us that the XBA3s are one of the most magical iems out there

comfortable, musical, warm and detailed  not as BOOM as the ATH or JVC upper end buds, but certainly a pleasure

to listen to...off i go to connect them...thanks DS for the tip..  still cant wait for reports on the new Sony and ATH lines

that are just coming out...

 

I really like the XBA-3's, find them well balanced and comfortable. And, I have to agree, they work really well with the X3.

The Cardas has me tempted, waiting to hear impressions. Not a surprise about the cable being thick-you ever see the size of their cables for stereo components? Haven't compared their's to other audiophile cables, but in general, they are about the size of a garden hose.

Buddy, I can't lie, I am addicted to the Cardas' sound (well the way I imagine it might be to be addicted to something). If you like the sound now (which clearly doesn't present itself in the best light), you will Love it later. I almost want to guarantee that. Hopefully I'll see my MA750 tomorrow.

The Cardas cable doesn't bother me at all. It almost seems like that thick cable justifies the beautiful thick sound coming out of it. And while they could have given a better case, the genuine leather pouch works fine if you roll the cable up just right. It's a tight glove like fit.

Danny got the goods I see..Got your monies worth and then some I hope. Good to hear them MA750s are living up to the hype already set by Warrenp..These are exciting times indeed, can't wait to try them out for myself.

 

What is cool is those RHAs have them dual density tips that I was very close to getting. I am glad I waited on them as they come with the new RHA earphones. I have a feeling those MA750s gonna pair up real nice with the X3.

I've only dealt with a Cardas cable once before and this cable is as thick as a regular headphone cable.  To the Y split anyway.  As for the sound, so far I am impressed and you might fall for that temptation at some point.

I listened for about 30-45 minutes and some songs just sucked me in and it was an impressive sound.  I'll leave it at that for now but I can feel that the sound will get better.  

 

The MA750's blew me away immediately.  It's a refined sound in the lines of the S2 but possibly even better.  The build and cable are amongst the best I've seen in this category.  I think the MA750's will be on the top of the discovery for the year.  It's that good from what I'm hearing so far.   650's aren't half bad either.

Congrats DannyBai! Man... I'm drooling over here! I'm also quite interested with the RHA MA750; the Cardas is still quite out of my league right now :(

 

How does your initial impression on the RHA MA750 compare to the Fidelio S2? Cheers!

I think they have that similar neutral sound but the bass is faster on the MA750's from what I can tell.  Treble area is less peaky and airy midrange.  It's a winner and ultra comfortable.  The tips are very nice too.  I'll do some comparing with the S2 and M200's after a few days of burn.  These might be the bargain of the year.

I do hope it one ups the S2..It would kinda be disappointing if it was a side dish but based on them graphs I am gonna predict a smoother treble response, perhaps not as extended in the region but should have nice detail overall in the sound. Them proprietary drivers got me all curious about these..Damn first it was Brainwavz and now RHA.

 

Everyone is stepping up their games. Could this be the onset of a new benchmark for $100 earphones? Is the question.

post #14625 of 32862

Thanks guys! I guess I'll just have to get both... I'm getting the S2 very soon but I'll have to wait for an authorised RHA reseller here in Australia to get the new RHAs in stock. There are only two here and one has already confirmed they're not ordering them. Another is still figuring things out and will get back to me as soon as they get the final word. If only Amazon ships those RHAs to OZ, I would've ordered like right now! :mad:
