New RHA IEMs: The MA750i and MA600i - Page 18

post #256 of 469

Yeah it's weird that their don't exist one picture of a person wearing these on the internet. Who will be the special one?

There is a picture, from the discovery thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/586909/the-discovery-thread-monster-gratitudes-kef-m200-pg835-philips-fidelio-s2-pg-724/15435#post_9885793.

There you go. Still no picture of one person wearing them when searching on google.

I just found out yesterday that I won a pair of the MA750s from Inner Fidelity, so I'm looking forward to a test-drive. I'll eventually give an impression if I have anything coherent to add.

post #260 of 469

Congrats. Looking forward to more user comments.

 

The 750s are a killer at the price and top drawer at any price.

 

I still wish they didn't weigh as much. And I am still looking for the perfect tips. But I just love them. I have kissed a lot of frogs in the past year in my search for new earphones. This is one of the best.

Can anyone compare the 750 and the XBA-30?

Was that me? :D


I believe it was, Sir Lin. :smile:

 

Wait, just to be sure, did you guys get the MA750i or the MA750?

Whoa!  :eek:  That's quite a statement there!

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. 

 

lin, for the record, my unit came with light scratches fresh out of the box.  I believe that some of those scratched might be part of the rough industrial look that they are going for?

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. 

 

Nope, not mee... :D

We got the MA750 but I think that they are the same thing? 

 

Perhaps, but I would prefer if it had no scratches, but it doesn't really matter because you can't see them when they are in your ears. 

 

Me neither lol.

the 750 is good, but best iem under $500? There are ciems under 500 that are better already :cool:

post #265 of 469

pretty sure even the $200 DN-1000 would be considered better by mostly anyone.

post #266 of 469
Elnero, merely stated he would take MA750i over every IEM he has 'personally' heard under $500. Let's not get carried away people.

Got my MA600 today.  They're in my ears right now; pleasingly the smallest tips fit immediately providing an excellent comfortable seal for my narrow canals.  Thumbs up for the tip selection.

 

I see some people have commented the MA750 have heavy housings, the MA600 do not.  They're very light aluminum.

 

Initial impressions out of the box are positive.  My in depth review to follow after significantly more listening and comparisons to other IEMs.

post #268 of 469

Just got my review unit of MA750 yesterday. I'm nowhere near ready to start writing a review of these, but I must say, I've been enjoying them a ton. Definitely not neutral, but they still provide a very pleasing balance. And they are pretty easy to equalize. Small changes are pretty easy to hear and so you can equalize them to sound a great deal more neutral without difficulty.

 

I'm not sure exactly what I'll have to say in my review except for this: They sound good, with or without EQ. People looking for a balanced sounding, if not necessarily neutral, pair of IEMs should keep this in mind if they're shopping in the $100-150 price range.

post #269 of 469

I've had the RHA-600i for a little while now.  A balanced, maybe V-shaped sound to them.  It's not a bad sound either, definitely enjoyable if you need some bass.  I know the graph and file name are labeled 650i...  It's been a long day; I need to change that, but this is the measurement for the 600i that I have.  They actually don't measure too poorly.  My compensation is standard DF compensation, but also compensates for the bass roll off of my DIY system.  

 

Overall positive impressions for an IEM with this signature.  Review to come in the upcoming week(s).

I should clarify that a bit better. First, that's only taking into consideration the IEM's I've heard or owned. Two, this is for my personal preference and requirements for an IEM in this price range. Since I have 1Plus2's anything in the under $500 price range is going to be for portable/back up purposes so what I'm looking for might differ than someone whose budget tops out in that range. For instance, I'm more concerned with overall balance and tonality than ultimate resolution or soundstage size. So with that in mind I'd say there's certainly going to be IEM's that are better in some aspects than the MA750i's but, from memory at least, out of all the IEM's I've heard under $500, the MA750i's offer the best overall package for my preferences.

See my reply above H20's reply below. But I'll also add that I personally don't like including CIEM's in this type of discussion because IMO that's a different ballgame and there is potential for much higher costs than the initial sticker price would suggest.

Exactly! Thanks for having my back. :bigsmile_face:
