New RHA IEMs: The MA750i and MA600i

post #1 of 498
Thread Starter 

Those who know me know that I'm a bit of an RHA fan.  These guys from Glasgow make fantastic little IEMs (MA350 & MA450i) with an engaging sound signature, that are reasonably priced, and come with a 3-year warranty.  So far, most of their offerings have had signatures that are more on the fun side. 

 

But now, they're launching a couple of new higher-end IEMs.  And from what I've heard, they're going for fidelity this time around... while maintaining sensible pricing!  eek.gif  Enter the MA750i and MA600i...

Gotta say, they definitely look the part... especially that MA750i.  smile.gif  Some pics/info have been popping up on their Facebook page over the last couple of days.  Here's what I've found so far:

A few more tidbits from a press release I found:

 

GLASGOW, UK, August 7, 2013 - British headphone specialist, RHA, today announced two premium additions to their in-ear headphone range. The MA750i and MA600i are engineered
to offer RHA’s signature open, natural sound and outstanding durability. The rst RHA product to use 303F stainless steel, the MA750i features handmade 560.1 dynamic drivers for precise, balanced and articulate audio reproduction with an open soundstage. Designed with contoured over-ear cable supports, the MA750i provides a secure and comfortable t for active use.

 

The MA600i, constructed from aircraft grade aluminium, combines RHA’s unique aerophonic™ shape with custom 320.1 dynamic drivers for highly accurate, balanced sound reproduction.  Both headphones are supplied with a selection of RHA’s dual density, double ange and memory foam ear tips to ensure effective noise isolation and comfortable t. The MA750i and MA600i also include carry cases and RHA’s patent pending, stainless steel ear tip holder.

 

Designed for use with compatible Apple devices*, the MA750i and MA600i are each equipped with a “Made for iPod, iPhone, iPad” 3-button remote and microphone. Audio playback works with most devices using a standard headphone connection. A version of each headphone without remote and microphone (MA750 / MA600) will be available in September.

 

The RHA MA750i ($129.95) and MA600i ($89.95) are available to purchase now (07/08/2013) from Apple Retail Stores throughout UK and Europe and will be available in the USA from August 28th, 2013

 

* The remote and mic are supported only by iPhone 3GS or later, iPad, iPod touch (2nd generation or later), iPod classic (120GB, 160GB), and iPod nano (4th generation or later). The remote is supported by iPod shufe (3rd generation or later). Audio is supported by all iPad and iPod models. iPad, iPhone, iPod, iPod classic, iPod nano, and iPod touch are trademarks of Apple Inc.

 


 

Obviously, I'm going to try and get my hands on both of these... unless some of y'all beat me to it.  wink.gif

The MA750i looks interesting indeed. I'm no good with all these technical graphs; what sort of music will they be good for?

post #4 of 498

I'm very interested.

Wow! These look quite stunning, I am hoping the sound is on the level of the aesthetics! Looks like a nice tip selection, the Apple-esque mic/remote, a cool case.... seems to be adding up to a sweet deal! Looking forward to some impressions/reviews, I'm suprised there aren't any from across the pond?!

I wish I could tell ya.  They'll be available in about two weeks on August 28th.  But based on my previous experience with RHA model numbering, and the huge amount of work they seem to have put into this, I would assume that they'd be fairly balanced and very good for a wide variety of genres.  That's my guess for now until I hear them.

Yeah, the MA750i is available in Apple retail stores, the regular MA750 isn't though.

Hey! These come out tomorrow in the USA. I'd really like to compare these against the GR07!

I search Google News with the words "headphones" or "earphones" and usually shows news of some of the latest headphone releases. One this week was on RHA and the new MA750i. I have several iems, but I need one to replace my Klipsch S3M which got closed in a car door while unpacking from vacation. This sounded really interesting but I was wondering if anyone has had a listen to them yet.

Probably not, I think most of us are waiting either for them to be available in the US, or the non-i versions before we start getting a few of our hands on them biggrin.gif
