It helps a bunch. I would take the ma750 but I wear glasses and am not wanting a over the ear cord setup. but if the the ma600 had the ma750 cord with it I would be hard pressed to pass that up. looks amazing..

 

Yeah, tough spot there.  BTW, in case you're wondering, I have tried wearing the MA750 straight down once (I was in a hurry and needed a headset for my phone).  It, um, didn't work out too well.

YES!  Though, if you're intention is to purchase less headphones, that's not usually what ends up happening here at Head-Fi.  ;)  BUT WE SO CRAZY WE JUST DON'T CARE!  :D

I got mine from Amazon.com. Between the exchange rate and shipping costs I'll probably end up having paid a little more than I would than when they become available in Canada but I didn't figure that the difference would be so significant to make it worth waiting.

 

Hey, there's an idea!  Also, IIRC, RHA did have an online store at their site - which accommodated international shipping.  I haven't checked back there recently, but perhaps that is still a viable options?

I keep watching the RHA RMAF videos over and over again, because I think the Scottish accent is uber-cool... I've always wanted to do an audio recording of the tale of Peter Rabbit, but as told from the perspective of Mr. McGregor... Anyway, enough of my injecting useless noise and lowering the SNR...

 

But... anyone think the Dita Answer/Truth or whatever-its-called (they need to gift Allen Iverson a pair, though... he deserves one) looks a whole lot like the 750?

Hi All,

 

Just a quick notice to let you know we'll be closing nominations for the review programme at the beginning of next week. 

 

Best of luck!

 

Thanks,

RHA Team

What's crazy is that Lyndsey is Irish and Hazel is Scottish, so sometimes it became quite entertaining at times.  Had a_rec been there, we could have gotten an Aussie accent in there as well for some real fun!

 

BTW, just put in a separate nomination for you in the RHA contest... with jgray91 taking my place as I've already got them.

Get on this everyone!  :smile:

The MA750 and the Auvio tips seem to be a great match (especially the older Auvios - if you have them).The older Auvio tips didn't have the color scheme match like the newer ones. They have wide fat body with narrows at the head (although the head is pretty wide too). Nice secure fit inside of my ears.

I tried this a few weeks ago, and just now, and both times I received an error message about Amazon not being able to ship to my address. I guess I need to wait.

I think the Scottish accent (being Scottish myself) is pretty boring! :o

personally i question what is the "Scottish" accent.  there is on more 1 Scottish accent than there is 1 English accent or 1 American accent.

For us ignorant Americans, we think everyone from Scotland is ginger and sounds like groundskeeper Willie. :p

Just got the MA750i with the intention of pairing it exclusively with my iphone. Pretty impressive sound quality after a brief 20 hours burn-in. Balanced with nicely extended highs. Good synergy with the iphone - the somehow thick mids and lower-mids compensates for the less-meaty iphone midrange, striking a nice tonal balance and timbre in the vocals. Haven't tried it with nicer sources though.

you might want to try finding a copy of a TV show called "Still Game" then.another but much older one was "High Life" but itll be impossible to get. both are amusing and have very, very broad accents in abundance.

I was rather surprised today when there was a knock on the door from DHL. 

Waiting for me inside a package with RHA's MA750 for review, I'd like to thank RHA for sending them so quickly as it was a pleasant surprise.

Here's some quick initial impressions (there will be a review to come later)

I'm really rather pleased with the sound of these on first listen.

To add to the surprise was the wonderful packaging I was greeted with inside the box. These earphones have quite stylish appearance that gives some class, I'm totally loving the jack strain relief and cable thickness to match the housings, not sure what others thoughts are on that but I can totally dig it!.

My initial impressions on sound are rather positive to boot. The low end although a touch emphasised is tight and controlled, there's a fraction of bleed I can hear in mid-bass however the mid range comes through over the top nice and clear (especially the upper mids) if not just a hint of warmth to make it easy on the ears and they immediately jumped out in technical  areas like instrument separation and soundstage width, overall quite a natural timbre to them that makes the mid range sound clear and smooth accompanied by quite a nice punchy (slightly mid bass) emphasise low end filling out the stage. Another area is channel separation, I could easily pick out guitars strumming on the left and right channels.

Treble I found a little bit strange with one track, little strident or peaking somewhere in the frequency range but it should settle down with a slight break in period and some mental burn in. I will add it was only one track so far and not with others. Overall they're particularly smooth and enjoyable to listen to, there's good detailing levels and clarity pushing through in the mids and seem quite capable technically as well. When you add that with the packaging, case, manual, cable and tip selection you can see RHA have really thought into this earphone. MA750 is rather comfortable to wear as well. I need to test the cable for microphonics and run them through some tracks for speed and refinement but so far I am indeed rather pleased with the dynamic based offering from RHA.

I've grabbed some shots but due to our not so good weather today it's playing on my available light.

 

 


 







 



Overall I'm indeed pleased with what I'm hearing and will report back!
