They really look like expensive gems! Fortunately they have amazing value. Great impression H20. Looking forward to your review.

If these are only $129 on Amazon? Then wow, playing some Michel Jonaz when the bass guitar hits has some of the deepest for filling sub bass I've heard from a dynamic driver. Good texture! Also very nice reproduction of piano and acoustic guitar, little bit of sibilance creeping through though.

They're pretty impressive though I must say especially if that's their going price.

They are great! That sub bass really shocked me. They aren't the most detailed IEMs I've heard but they still pack a lot of detail and is impressive for its price. They are absolutely great for a basshead. Mids are very clear with some warmth and the treble is somewhat rolled off. It isn't too slow and actually quite fast though.

How do they sound with your DX50? I'm using IHIFI 760 with impressive results, I find them quite addictive and have been listening most if this evening.

They pair very well.

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 too, there's good detailing levels and clarity pushing through in the mids and seem quite capable technically as well.

 

Hey H20, thanks for the impressions.  :smile:  Looks like our initial thoughts line up pretty well on this.

Hey Warren. :smile:

Yes, no real complaints here so far at all. I asked my brother visiting today how much he thought these RHA-MA750 were worth just going off their physical appearance, he gave an estimate figure of about $200 - $300. So all is well especially in build, packaging, and design, I have to agree as well they do look in the flesh at least double their price. The build is exceptional for this price range.

I know EXACTLY what you mean.  I asked a friend of mine how much he thought they were... after quoting the specs and showing him all the accoutrements.  He actually returned a figure that was twice what your brother said.  I think he was a little swayed by how closely these resemble the K3003.  Maybe RHA should charge more?  :D

Without giving RHA Team any ideas maybe they could, but lets not give any ideas. :D I believe another quote I read today from someone who heard them was.......

"These MA750 make other companies look bad"

I found the bass on my MA750i's leveled out a bit and the treble smoothed after a few hours of use. I was blown away with how good they are for the asking price. I had thought the RE-400's were good value at a $100 but for just a few dollars more the MA750i's offer much better build quality and a balance that suits my personal preferences more. Take this with a grain of salt because I haven't directly compared but my impression has been that I'd take the RHA-MA750i's over pretty much every other IEM I've heard under $500.

They sound absolutely great and beat everything under $250 I've heard, looks great and has an amazing warranty; what more do you want for $120?

 

The only problem it seems is the edges seems to scratch rather easily, which was also a problem with the similarly shaped AX60 and I take quite good care of my gear.

I'm going to give them 100 hours, but already leaving them running this afternoon I can hear them settling in, that treble I mentioned being a touch harsh may be smoothing over, I cannot be sure though at such time until further testing. I'll be honest I didn't know exactly what their price was when receiving them around lunchtime, I just put them in and started assuming around $250 area, then looked on amazon and was a little gob smacked with what I was hearing. Initial impressions are much more engaging than my very first listen to GR07 MK2, certainty clearer in the mid range than I remember. I think another area MA750 need to show finesse is at lower volumes, see what kind of atmosphere and timbre they can produce at lower levels, as it's a two way street.

I'm also rather surprised at their power handling capability. My IHIFI 760 DAP can drive 300ohm HD600. MA750 just soak up the power sounding more detailed the harder I drive them, I'm guessing the nice cable thickness is helping contribute, so for those who want to listen loud, should be right at home.

I really don't want to be the ear model, hopefully Lin can help us or Warren. I've heard they both have quite admirable ears.
