New RHA IEMs: The MA750i and MA600i - Page 3

post #31 of 500

Thank you for those initial impressions.  Very thorough and informative.  I am very glad I ended ordering these last night then.  :beerchug:

Thanks, I'm glad I could help!  :smile:

 

BTW, I forgot to mention something a little earlier.  For the past week or so, I've been listening to a pair of UE700.  For anyone that is familiar with this unit, it is generally regarded to be somewhat bass shy.  It may take me a little while to fully acclimate back from that.  So please keep in mind that my elevated bass impression may be someone else's just right.  FWIW, I'm listening to The Alan Parsons Project's Eye In The Sky right now on the AK120, and I would not consider this listen to be bassy in the slightest.

You're welcome of course.  :smile:  I think I remember seeing a Facebook post from RHA a while back, that essentially said they were now in Apple stores?  I could be wrong though, don't hold me to that.

^ Hmmm maybe i can cop a set from the apple store and if i don't like them, i can just return it. hoho :veryevil:

 

Sticking it to The Man!!! :evil: j/k...... not really. :devil_face:

 

Thanks warren for those awesome 1st impressions, they sound really promising. You seems to have A LOT more experience with IEMs than that birdie and you saying that the sound of these are what you had expected for them UE900s is extremely telling. Interesting indeed......

Amazing review! I've been waiting for some impressions on these IEMs, and your post covered everything I wanted to know! I not only was open mouthed by the IEMs, but with your writing as well!

Two authorized retailers in Australia are not planning to stock the new RHA's. What a bummer... I just hopE the apple stores will have them asap.
post #38 of 500
Looking forward to having these in my hands soon. I think I'll be set for awhile with these, my Onkyos and H-200. Now if I can get myself a cheap pair of X1s, my life would be complete..... For the moment anyway.

Hehe, a tried and true method for auditioning stuff eh?  :p  I think that $129 for the MA750i is a steal.  An IEM with machined aluminum throughout, even in the y-splits and plugs, should cost way more than this.

Of course!  Well, I could always use more IEM experience (MUCH MUCH MORE) if you know what I mean.  ;)  But I think he's on the right track there.  I just wish he'd go into more detail - especially if that is his full review. 

 

Don't get me wrong, I still like my UE900 in many ways.  But in the end, I would not be surprised at all if these ended getting more ear time with me.  :smile:

Wow, thanks for kind words!  That's not a full review though, just wanted to lay down some initial impressions so everyone knows whether it's worth auditioning or not.  :smile:

They might want to reconsider that.  RHA products have a proven history of performing far above their asking price.  IMO, the MA750i is no exception.

I haven't heard the Onkyos yet... missed them at CES last year.  Though I have since heard that they are quite competent.  Do you like them?

post #40 of 500

Nice impressions Warren. Been lurking this thread since this morning.

 

Althought I'd probably not like their sound, these are aluminum. I do have quite a bit of an aluminum fetish. Just ask around.

 

The 600 doesn't look nearly as nice as the 750 but I guess that's why we have to pay the big bucks. Aluminum + clear tips = great aesthetics (within the pic)

 

Looking forward to impressions with the Onkyos, anyone who manages to do that...

^ Man i am hurt that you see me in that light, welp not really but i don't buy things from retail stores just to audition them then return it. I BUY FROM THE SALES FORUMS HERE AND FLIP THEM DURRR!!! ;) Now THAT's a tried and true method. hoho Anywho the sales forum here is an amazing resource indeed and has save my butt many times. I just see it as helping out your fellow head-fier buying used and sticking it to The Man, or i am just a cheap bastard, you done decide. :)

 

Welp that noob iem birdie was the one who hyped those JVC FXZ200s and gave them that prestigious show award which got the hype train started on them. I am not saying these FXZ200s doesn't deserve the hype, but the initial hype was just too crazy. These are good basshead audiophile grade iems for sure but i wouldn't say they are as mind blowing amazing like others has claimed that's for sure. Anyway bad birdie bad for hyping these. haha

 

That's reassuring to hear that you would pick these RHA over the UE900s, though i have never heard anything from UE they sure ain't cheap and is highly regarded in the audiophile world so.... good to know where you stand.

 

Oh nos, the full review is gonna be flowery prose OVA' LOAD!!!:triportsad: j/k..... not really.   I might steal some of your writing style for future write-ups, MAYBE. :tongue: Can't wait for the full review, but do take your time with it though, no need to rush a good thang.

 

 

Yeppp i currently own RHA MA350s and they sound great indeed esp. for their low price. Their sound is easily on the upper $80s in value and is a lot better sounding than a lot of the budget-fi gears i have tried that's for sure. Oh that note since you have heard RHAs lower end models, how would you describe that timbre of these MA750s??? Cuz the MA350 tend to have a colder and artificial/ analytical-esque sound signature. Despite their pretty big and deep bass presence the MA350 does not sound all that natural to me in their presentation that's for sure.

 

SO how does the sound signature of these MA750s compare to the MA350s???

It's actually stainless steel, which is even better ("the MA750i is constructed from individually machined stainless steel components").

 

Very nice, concise and clear impressions.

 

My only concern, though, is the 25dB dip (!) from 7.5k all the way to ~15K. I think that may be a bit too polite.

^ i am sure these don't dip nor peak nearly as much as those K3003s.....  too feral just like those grumpy sparrows. :tongue: 

 

edit: now i know why you two were meant for each other. :rolleyes:

Gotta love all those FR charts — pick your favourite K3003 graph (note not only where the dips and peaks 'appear to be' in each one but the dB differences):

Different couplers (I notice at least three, IEC60711, 7cc, 2cc) and insertion depths, as well as smoothing resolution of the rendered graphs will yield very different results. But let's not talk about the K3K3 here... :o
