New RHA IEMs: The MA750i and MA600i - Page 8

post #106 of 500
Just got an update from Audio Trends Australia, the MA750 is due for shipment from the supplier in 4 weeks. I'm still waiting for their response on my price inquiry.

I am surprised things are available in Portugal everywhere even at apple resellers. Guess today was a good day. :etysmile: 

 

Btw still waiting for a pic of them wore.

Some observations on the Ma750

 

I've had the Ma 750 for a week now and so far I'm very impressed. I'm listening to them out of a Clip with Rockbox, Pc at work or my Samsung S4. I'm enjoying them so much my Merlins haven't had a look in since I bought them! 

 

For £89 I think they offer really good value, they come with a load of different tips, including a couple of memory foams. The build quality is robust to say the least and I think they sound great. Unfortunately I lack the audiophile language to accurately describe the sound, but I'm finding they seem good all rounders with nice bass, good detail and a pretty large soundstage. They also isolate fairly well - I've used them on the London Underground and apart from moments between songs I can't hear the drone of the train.

 

A couple of downsides, the remote doesn't work properly on anything apart from iProducts. On my S4 I can pause and restart tracks but thats it. You could probably get an app to program the button to skip tracks but the volume controls don't work at all. I actual find the cable a bit long, its not too big a problem but I've gotten a bit tangled a few times. I'm also not keen on the fit of the included memory foams.

 

All in all I'm very happy with them, good value, good sound and a 3 year warranty to boot.

I think that is why it's called MA750i. The remote was made specifically for Apple products. I have remotes on other earphones that aren't made for Apple products and only work well on droid phones.

Thats right, it says it on the box. 750i is designed for Apple devices but works ok on Android (minus volume controls). Doesn't affect the sound quality none.

post #111 of 500

I take it the ma750 is exactly the same as the ma750i sound wise, with the only difference being the ma750i having the remote?

Do you find the ma750 are a good upgrade from your yamaha eph 100's?

post #113 of 500
Most definitely prefer these to the Yamaha's. When I had those I thought they were great at the £100 price point, to me they were far more suited to my taste than X10s I had that were over twice the price. These 750s are not only cheaper than the Yamaha's but to me they are actually a leap forward in quality as well.

I'm on something of a modern Prog binge at the moment and I'm really enjoying the 750s clarity and soundstage. At first I found the bass a bit too powerful but I've either got used to it or its settled down with some hours.
post #114 of 500

What is the sound sig of the ma750? Leaning towards v-shaped?

post #115 of 500
I'd say more balanced now they've had a few hours use.

They sound like my next purchase, does anyone have a discount code for the RHA website?

Thanks!

Be careful putting on the double flange tips if you want to use them. They are paper thin and have about the same strength evidently.

 

Ooh, bad bit of luck there on the ripped tip.  Was the double flange the best pairing for you?  If so, ouch!

I'd definitely be interested in comparing impressions with you on that.  For me, the jury is still out on that one.

Same with Canada and Amazon won't ship them to Canada either, it's rather disappointing.

 

I sent an inquiry to RHA asking where I might be able to get them in Canada but haven't received a reply as yet.

 

I'm from Canada and had the same issue. I logged into amazon.co.uk and was able to get them shipped to Canada but with no tracking.

 

You must have got lucky, I just tried and this is what I get "We're sorry. This item can't be shipped to your selected destination." Thanks for the info though, maybe if I'd got to it earlier it would have worked.

 

The quest continues.

 

Just FYI, I brought this to RHA's attention the other day.  They said that they are ACTIVELY working on getting these into Canada and Australian distributors' hands as soon as possible.  They also confirmed that AmazonUK will ship to CA and AUS, albeit at a greater cost.

Thanks for the impressions Aund!  :smile:  Seems like everyone is enjoying these so far.  I still think the bass could be toned down a bit, but hey that's just me.  Still a very enjoyable listen though!

Ya I liked the double flange the best and the large ones at that. I am a big fan of Isabel at RHA. I showed her this pic and she is going to send me some replacements..She is good people. I think for the most part the majority of the tips are top quality. My other tip was thicker but this one was unnaturally thinner. It could be an isolated problem. There are so many other tips to choose from it is a non issue really.

Yup!  Agreed, Isabel is world-class at problem solving.  She sent jgray91 new tips as well when he ripped the ones on his MA350.

Hi ericp10, could you please compare the 750i to the gr07.
