RHA MA-750i Review - Page 12

post #166 of 175


Thanks for the feedback. Any experience with the B&W C5 S2s? How do they stack up against the 750s and are they durable?

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the great review. I'm looking for IEMs in a reasonable price range (180-200$) without breaking my bank. I owned a pair of Shure SE 215s with an inline remote cable for last 4 years. While I did enjoy the clarity and clean sound from SE215s I always thought they were lacking the dynamic low end punch...low on bass. Unfortunately I lost that pair recently on a train. 

To tell more about myself and preferences, I'm not an audiophile but I do enjoy good quality music. I listen to different genres hip hop, techno, digital/electronic, fusion, melodies, and list goes on... Mostly modern music.

So I've done quite a bit of search on the web and came up with couple of options which could fit my bill.

 -  Bowers and Wilkins C5 Series2 ($180)

 -  RHA MA750i ($130).

 

Both these have a inline mic/remote which is a must for me as I intend to use them on my iPhone 6plus. I've read some user experiences online with C5s having issues with the durability/build quality. A few people have complained they broke down (one of the earphone dies) after a few months of use. Although they are covered for 2yrs under warranty I would like to have something which can last 3-4 yrs at least without breaking down.

I haven't heard or auditioned either one of those IEMs mentioned above, so thought you could help me. Also pls feel free to recommend any other options which you think will suit my described needs/preferences/budget.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions or feedback.


hey, well i think you have a problem first off. "While I did enjoy the clarity and clean sound from SE215s I always thought they were lacking the dynamic low end punch...low on bass."

 

 

the 215s arent particularly clear, and if you find them lacking in bass then you are after a bit of a bass monster.  the two that spring to mind are the Wooduo2 and the RHA T10.  the Wooduo are way cheaper but the T10 are literally built like tanks.  given you seem quite highly keen on durability you cannot go wrog with the T10 or the MA750 as both are absolutely solid.  though in terms of bass i fear the 750 wont be bassy enough for you.  given your budget seems to go high enough id suggest looking wore into the T10 than to the 750 if i was you.

Thanks for the reply and greatly appreciate your suggestions. As I'm not an audiophile may be my description of the 215s were not appropriate...in 215s the vocals are very upfront and clean....I liked it for sometime but after few months I started feeling bored with them. I want the sound to be more lively and fun. I will try and finalize between T10i and 750i. I'm still trying to see if I can get to listen to both. But to get a demo here in India is next to impossible and the return policies are not that customer friendly either. Still searching the market. I'll keep you posted on how it goes. Meanwhile any experience with B&W C5 S2?

nope not heard the b&w.

 

also its not so much that your description was inappropriate, its more that it was coming form a very "consumer" perspective.  by that i mean that consumer focused stuff tends be hugely bass heavy and lack clarity.  so to you more used to non audio peeps stuff the 215 as a pretty reasonably quality product to you sounds very clear compared to what you have heard.  if you compare it to things like the 750 then the 215 is a very warm, rich, bassy earphone.

Agreed...I'm more from a consumer side of things rather than audiophile side. Thanks for your responses Mark.

Im thinking of getting these as my new daily use on the bus, walking etc, was wondering if you had any gripes with these in regards to mobility/daily use. Thanks!

Hi oThats, have been using the MA - 750's for the past four weeks with no issues, well one or two.... cable a little too long. some leakage. These gripes are negated by its build and sq. To me they will suit your needs as they are built like tanks and are darn good looking imo.

nope, they pretty good for the job, though they not the most isolating so if you commute in a super noisy environment like the Tube then maybe i would look towards a BA IEM.
