I reviewed the MA-350 by RHA in July of 2012 and I thought it was a cut above the average in the general first time upgrade from ibuds category. Well a year later and RHA are back with a new range of higher end (but still quite reasonable) earphones, the MA600i and the MA750(i) retailing at £59.95 and £79.95 (£89.95 for the i version with mic and remote) and I can tell you right now I think these are stunning earphones both aural and visual terms and for them to be popping in at sub-100 quid or $130 in the US is just the icing on the cake. These could well be the best earphones in the market right now at this price range.

From the box and zip case pouch, to the clever little aluminum crafted earbud tray and carefully considered choice of tips the MA-750i has the smell of a mature and serious product that is aimed squarely at the discerning listener who cares that little bit more but isn’t going to break the bank for what he wants. Now I break the bank for what I want, yup I am insane, but even I had to stop and gaze at the the MA-750i presentation and wonder if there is anything under $200 that can beat it. Frankly there is not. Westone’s little cute nylon hard case and multiple array of tips comes close, Fischer Audio’s DBA MK2 is pretty good in choice also and the Rock-It R50, which price wise is right in there, also has some choices but they all look roughly the same and have that samey feel about them.

    I just happened to have this item already and was curious to read this. Now that I have, it’s a very accurate review, and it even fills in a few blanks (like transporting the extra eartips). I was really impessed with how they have such a solid bass here that isn’t bloated yet it delivers on quantity and quality both. That sound plus the great fit should make this IEM a big winner.

      I agree Dale. It is nice someone out there is raising the bar for what is acceptable in the lower price tiers.

    Nice review. I need another set of IEMs like a hole in the head though. 🙂

    One question for you, if you don’t use an iPhone or Android what are you using? The options are fairly limited otherwise.

    • headfonics

      I am using an Astell & Kern AK100 and Vorzuge DuoAmp right now which means no use of the mic at all and frankly I never use those things. Bit old school in that respect.

      • SoulSyde

        Sorry I was just wondering what type of phone you use. 🙂

        • headfonics

          BB Z10 🙂

          • SoulSyde

            Well, it’s a step above the Zack Morris phone. 🙂

          • headfonics

            hehe its the only touch phone which allows my slow fingers to txt accurately – might just go Q10 next – if only for OTG and I would be in heaven 🙂

    Excellent review. I bought the IEMs and love them, but you’re correct about the lost bass from i-devices. I don’t, however, have the budget for the Vorzuge DuoAmp. Which sub$200 portable amp would complement the RHA’s best?

    • headfonics

      I think you have to look at the FiiO E17 and E07k for the warm tonality and good amping but the t-series from iBasso might also be fun.
